Caitlyn Jenner has revealed she rang her children to apologise after they received negative press following her stint on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The American reality star's family, which includes Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, were criticised for their apparent lack of support of her stint in the jungle.

They also faced a backlash when they didn't fly to Australia to greet her when she was eliminated from the series.

Jenner has now spoken out about her disappointment at the treatment her family received in the press.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the 70-year-old said: "My family are very well-known.

"I never asked any of them to come down or expected them to - they all have businesses and families.

"I was disappointed they were criticised.

"After the show was over, I texted or called all the kids to apologise."

Kim Kardashian, whose mother Kris was married to Jenner when she was Bruce, has previously addressed the backlash by explaining that she and her family were not approached about I'm A Celeb.

She wrote on Twitter: "NO ONE from I'm a Celeb even reached out and asked for letters, appearances or anything from any Kardashians or Jenners."
