Last hug: I’m A Celebrity’s Giovanna Fletcher wrapped her arms around her children in touching photos before heading to the Gwyrch castle ahead of the show’s debut on Sunday

The Voice host, 44, said Giovanna will ‘desperately miss’ her family after being apart from them for up to four weeks if she makes the final stages of the show.
Talking to MailOnline, Emma said she will be voting for Giovanna to win as she hopes for her to follow in the footsteps of Dougie Poynter and her husband, Matt Willis, who are both former Kings of the Jungle.
Emma, who will host this Saturday’s final of The Voice on ITV, said: ‘If she’s in there until the end it’s three weeks and she’s also in isolation without her children so that will be four weeks. That’s a bloody long time for any parent.

‘I have no doubt it will get to her and she will desperately miss them. She watches I’m A Celeb every year and she knows exactly what she is getting herself into.
‘It’s one of those things where you’re like, “I’ll do it, it’ll be amazing and you get there and the environment you’re in,” the tasks you’re taking on and the lack of food and sleep, they will start getting to you and who knows what kinds of emotions will start coming out.
‘She’s pretty clued up and is a huge fan of the show. Doug has won it, Matt has won it, all of our McBusted family has taken part so she knows what to expect.’
Family time: On Tuesday, Tom Fletcher, 35, revealed he and wife Giovanna, 35, enjoyed a trip to the I’m A Celeb castle in Wales with their sons Buzz, six, Buddy, four, and Max, two
It comes after husband Tom revealed they enjoyed a family trip to the castle with their sons before Giovanna ‘was cut off from the world’.
The McFly guitarist took over his wife’s Instagram account to share a photograph of her at the castle grounds having fun with their eldest two children, and admitted she wanted to ‘minimise the time away from the kids’.
Tom captioned the heartwarming snap: ‘Making the most of isolation! Obviously Gi wanted to minimise the time she was away from the kids so we all went for a little adventure before she was cut off from the world.
‘The @imaceleb castle is somewhere beyond that wall. (This is Tom here btw…hi!’
