I’m a Celeb: Vernon Kay discusses losing weight
Strictly presenter Tess Daly was reunited with her husband Vernon Kay at the weekend following the final of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! on Friday. The former Family Fortunes host finished in third place on the ITV programme, behind Giovanna Fletcher who was crowned Queen of the Castle and runner-up Jordan North.
During his time in the castle, the 46-year-old TV star lost two stone in weight.
Vernon, who is 6ft 4, looked noticeably slimmer in the final stages of the competition after living on predominantly rice and beans for three weeks.
Taking to Instagram last night, Tess told fans that she was making extra meals for her husband of 17 years.
“Chicken soup at bedtime… feeding him up,” she wrote, alongside a picture of the dish.

The photo, which she shared with her 695,000 followers, showed a bowl of hearty soup and buttered toast.
The day before, the 51-year-old said it was “so good” to finally have him home.
She posted a cosy photo of the pair, in matching black jumpers, on the picture-sharing site.
The couple, who tied the knot in 2003, were apart for five weeks during the course of the show.
“After almost 5 weeks away (2 and a half in isolation before going into the @imacelebrity Castle) it’s so good to have him home.
“Now it’s time to get that Christmas tree up…!” she wrote online, looking towards the festive period.
Vernon will no doubt look forward to spending some time with his wife and two daughters – Phoebe and Amber.
He spoke about how he wanted to make them proud on numerous occasions during their time apart.

Talking about Vernon’s weight loss following his exit, the mum-of-two revealed that she had been shopping to buy all of his favourite foods ahead of his return.
Filming her shopping haul, she gave fans a rare glimpse at their home life.
She wrote online: “Vern told me he’s lost 30lb in weight!
“So I’ve been shopping to get some of his fav foods ready for his return… mostly meat, chocolate, and of course his favourite @yorkshiretea bags!”
On Friday night’s final, viewers saw Vernon tuck into a drink and meal of his choice with his fellow campmates Jordan and Giovanna.
He requested a cup of tea alongside his peri peri chicken and sticky toffee pudding.
Tess, who continued to host Strictly and look after the couple’s children while her husband was away, will be back on-screen for the semi-finals of the ballroom dancing competition at the weekend.
