Tess Daly says she’s ‘barely slept’ over fears for ‘hungry and cold’ husband Vernon Kay on I’m A Celebrity

TESS Daly has admitted she's 'barely slept' as she worries for her 'hungry' and 'cold' husband Vernon Kay on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here. 

The Strictly Come Dancing host, 51, appeared on today's Lorraine and said watching her husband, 46, on this year's Welsh stint has been nerve-wrecking .

Tess, who has been married to Vernon since 2003, said: "Oh my goodness, it feels like he has been away forever. I think about him every moment of every day and I watch him every night...

"Yeah, he is doing brilliantly and it's lovely watching him but it's nerve-wracking, it really is. I worry about him being cold, about him not eating…

"Honestly, I have barely slept," she added. "I don't think I have slept more than five or six hours since he has been in there...

"The other day I woke up dreaming I was doing a challenge with Claudia [Winkleman]. It involved snakes and being underground and it was terrifying…

"I am living and breathing it every step of the way but loving it. I have laughed with them and cried with them."

The presenter told his campmates what it's like inside the Prime Minister's 16th century country retreat in Buckinghamshire on tonight's show.

When his campmates pointed out the full moon above Gwrych Castle, Vernon jumped at the chance to recall his gag.

During Mr Blair's time as PM, Vernon and Tess were invited to a formal dinner along with Lord and Lady Sainsbury.

Remembering the PM commenting on a beautiful full moon, Vernon told his co-stars: "I didn't even look, I just went, yeah Tony, I know, I know, I… (makes a wolf noise)".

Victoria Derbyshire and Beverley Callard found it hilarious and asked if Mr Blair laughed.

Vernon said he did, but Tess was less impressed, giving him a dig in the arm instead.

The former T4 star then said Cherie then gave them a tour of the home.

He told how they saw swords used by Oliver Cromwell, and Mr Blair joked he knew how to use them because Samuel L Jackson had taught him how to use a Lightsaber.

Talking in the Telegraph, Beverley said: “You just don’t expect that in Chequers do you, I want to go.”

While Vernon said to camera: "You just think, big decisions have been made in these rooms and then Tess Daly from Strictly Come Dancing and Vernon Kay from Family Fortunes walk in."
