Tess Daly is cheering on husband Vernon Kay with a message of support on Instagram after it was announced that the presenter will be taking part on I'm a Celebrity this year.

The Strictly Come Dancing host shared a photo of Vernon in his jungle outfit of red gilet and red trousers – presumably all thermal and water resistant this year as the camp relocates to North Wales.

Tess added the caption: "Ahh so the news is out Vernon is doing @imacelebrity ! For years we have watched this show together, cheering the camp mates on, laughing at the genius Geordie duo @antanddec and celebrating the king & Queens of the jungle. This year we'll be watching Vern take part. He is over the moon to be on the show, red gilet an' all. Good luck Vern!!"

The line-up was revealed at the end of ITV's I'm a Celebrity special fronted by hosts Ant and Dec last night, during which they looked back over the best moments spanning two decades.

Along with Vernon, the celebrities taking part include Olympic gold medalist Mo Farah, EastEnder's star Shane Ritchie, broadcaster Victoria Derbyshire, Corrie's Beverley Callard, and Strictly dancer AJ Pritchard.

Soap star Jessica Plummer, BBC Radio 1 DJ Jordan North, Paralympic champion Hollie Arnold, and author and podcaster Giovanna Fletcher have also signed on.

The series will be set at the historic Gwrych Castle, Abergele in North Wales after the pandemic made travelling to the traditional camp in Australia too challenging.

Ant & Dec will present the show each night live from the castle, while the celebrities will continue to battle for food and treats in gruelling trials - although the usual bush tucker trials won't be happening this year.

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! will begin on ITV next Sunday, 15 November.
