Tess Daly has not skipped an episode of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! so far as she pines for her husband Vernon Kay during his stay at Gwrych Castle.
So far the former T4 presenter has parasailed down a cliff and in stomach-churning scenes aired in last night's episode, successfully wolfed down a deer's testicle and a sheep's brain.
Ahead of tonight's installment of the ITV show, Vernon's loving wife Tess took to Instagram to tell followers she feels 'so proud' after watching her hubby triumph in his first Bushtucker Trial.
And while she's enjoying seeing Vernon back on the telly, Tess admitted that she's missing him so much that today she went back through old photos from their early days together just to look at his face.

The Strictly host then shared one of the findings with her Instagram followers, which showed the pair looking very loved-up in their 20s as they enjoyed a holiday to party isle Ibiza before they got married.
Tess, 51, flaunted her model figure in the picture while dressed in a cute pastel bikini as she affectionately threw her arm's round then-boyfriend Vernon's chest.
Vernon, 46, was also looking buff in his shorts as he gave a cheeky smile to the camera.
Sharing the throwback with her online fans, Tess joked that her husband of 17 years still hasn't changed his hairstyle.

She wrote: "So proud of Vernon in his first trail last night on @imacelebrity , he aced it!! No idea how he managed to clear his plate though!"
"Missed him today and looking through old photos found this from a trip to Ibiza probably about 17 years ago…He’s still got the same hair!" she joked.
"GOOD LUCK TONIGHT," added Tess, who shares daughters Phoebe, 16, and Amber, 11, with the TV star.

Tess first met five years younger Vernon at a Christmas party when he was a presenter on T4 back in 2001.
She said they had an 'immediate' connection and had a 'blast' getting to know each other.
Explaining why their relationship works, she previously told the Belfast Telegraph: "There's an unspoken understanding between us, because we come from similar stock. We come from similar families. We've been brought up in a very similar way, really," she previously told the Belfast Telegraph.

"I guess that's one of the reasons I always felt so comfortable with him."
The pair tied the knot two years after they met at st Mary's Church in Bolton – Vernon's hometown.
He popped the question in front of Tess' family on Christmas Day, which Tess called 'the best present' she'd ever had.
