Tess Daly posted a gorgeous black and white photo of her family including her two daughters ahead of Vernon Kay's debut on I'm a Celebrity last night (15 November).

The Strictly Come Dancing presenter rarely shares pictures of her two girls Phoebe, 16, and Amber, 11, on social media, preferring to keep her family life shielded from the public. But she made an exception over the weekend to show their support for Vernon as he and nine other campmates entered Gwrych Castle in Abergele, North Wales on Sunday.

In the lovely snap, the family have their arms around one another and are smiling for the camera. Tess added the caption: "GOOD LUCK VERNON. After not being able to see him for what feels like AGES me & the girls can’t wait to watch Vern on tonight’s first @imacelebrity and see how he fares in the Castle We love you SO much and we miss you TONS! Go #teamVernon #imaceleb All our love Tess Phoebe & Amber XXX."

Vernon has had to isolate in Wales before heading into the camp to make sure all campmates are Covid-19 free.

The TV presenter revealed that he is likely to get emotional on the show, and even welled up on last night's episode as he thought about his daughters and their excitement about him taking part.

"One hundred per cent I will cry," Vernon told ITV. "My favourite movie is Forrest Gump. I have seen it at least 100 times and I cry every time I watch it. But I am excited about doing I’m a Celebrity. The physical and mental challenges will be really interesting."

Vernon joins Sir Mo Farah, Hollie Arnold MBE, Victoria Derbyshire, soap star Jessica Plumber, EastEnders actor Shane Ritchie and Corrie legend Beverley Callard on the series.

Author and podcaster Giovanna Fletcher, Radio 1 DJ Jordan North, and Strictly's AJ Pritchard complete the line-up. Ant and Dec are back as presenters.

I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! returns on Monday (November 16), 9pm on ITV.
