I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! star Vernon Kay opened up on his children's reaction to seeing their mum, Tess Daly, on television.

Vernon shares daughters Phoebe, 16, and Amber 11, with Tess, who he has been married to since 2003.

Tess presents Strictly Come Dancing, and Vernon revealed Phoebe was confused when she saw her mum on the telly.

The campmates were chatting about who was the most famous person they had in their phonebook, and Vernon initially pretended he had Brad Pitt's number, which Victoria Derbyshire believed.

Afterwards, Vernon said the most famous person was probably his wife.

"When Phoebe was watching Strictly with me, I used to dress up in a suit at first when she was young, and we'd dance together.

"So she'd put a princess dress on, I'd wear a suit and when they were all dancing around we'd replicate that.

"And just out the blue one evening she said, 'Daddy, is my mummy Tess Daly?'

"Because we'd never really explained that mummy works on the telly because obviously mummy's mummy."

Corrie star Beverley Callard said: "My grandson, when he saw Liz Macdonald, he was about 6 or 7 and they don't watch Coronation Street or anything because it's like homework and then bedtime.

It came on TV and Rebecca [her daughter] just said to George, 'Oh George look, there's grandma!'

"And he went, 'Oh My God, why is grandma dressed like Sexy Gaga?!'"

Mo revealed he had the phone numbers of Thierry Henry, and boxer Anthony Joshua.

"Oh my god I love him!" said Victoria. "So Mo, when you come round for Sunday lunch with Tania and the kids, please bring Anthony Joshua, please."

Jessica Plummer added: "Mo Farah has quite a lot of celebrity friends, I'm very much looking forward to Mo's birthday party next year, that's all I'm going to say."
