Just a few days prior to her journey, Jaqueline shared a sweet selfie with her two girls, and gushed about how much she loves them. "Morning cuddles with my best friends," she wrote. "You are the reason babies. I love you." Meanwhile, her husband has been sharing Instagram Stories of him taking care of the kids – including videos from a grocery shopping spree.

I'm a Celebrity, which has been on air since 2002, will see presenter Ant McPartlin return to the series alongside his co-host Declan Donnelly. Last year, the duo's loyal friend Holly Willoughby stepped in to replace Ant after the 43-year-old entered rehab for drug and alcohol addiction. Speaking about his return on Ant & Dec's DNA Journey, Ant explained: "I can't wait, I love the show and I am chomping at the bit." Dec concluded: "For us it is an exciting time of year and we look forward to this from about May. I keep reading all the rumours about who is going in, it's very exciting."
