TV presenter Tess Daly has revealed she is not sleeping while her husband Vernon Kay takes part in this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!.

The Strictly Come Dancing host said she is worried about Kay not eating enough and that he is cold. 

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine Daly 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."

She added: "Honestly, I have barely slept. 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, her Strictly co-host).

"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."

Discussing how their children feel seeing their father in the castle, she said: "Well, they love it. Phoebe, our 16-year-old, watches it every night with me.

"Amber, who is 11, isn't allowed to stay up that late because obviously, it is school nights a lot of the time.

Will Vernon Kay be crowned King of the I'm A Celeb... castle?

"On a Friday night she is allowed to, so she did see it when he said 'hello'. I looked at their faces and they just lit up.

"They miss him, they haven't seen him for four and a half weeks now, because they were isolating for two weeks before going in."

Asked if Kay will take advantage of any job offers that come his way from doing the show, Daly replied: "Yeah probably. We have always had a policy that while they were growing up, one of us would be at home.

"He travels a lot with his job, he works for Formula E for example. We have always had this policy where we have juggled it between us.

"They (their children) are older now, they understand mum and dad have got to go to work and we love what we do. We just try and juggle it, like every working parent.

"It's the eternal juggle isn't it? But we are not complaining. It's all good stuff."
