The former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star also explained that although he wasn’t there in person, he was receiving regular updates throughout the programme.

Chloe recently admitted that pregnancy and life postpartum had made her , explaining: ‘What I learned throughout my pregnancy, and what I’ve learned since in the postnatal period, is not to take your body personally (even though your visceral reaction will likely tell you to). Don’t do it.

‘Don’t think that because you expect your body to do something, it will, and don’t think you should attach any kind of emotion to that whatsoever.

‘I could never have predicted that I’d end up getting an emergency c-section, or why, and I could never have predicted that breastfeeding would come so naturally to both my body and my baby.

Chloe and James, who had been trying to conceive a baby for two years, tied the knot in 2018.
