Tess has been vocal about how much she's missing her other half while he's competing in the hit ITV show, and on Friday even shared a sweet throwback photo of the pair.

Paying a nod to the GQ Men of the Year Awards, Tess posted a black and white image of herself and Vernon from when they attended the event back in 2003.

In the photo, Tess lovingly gazes at her husband with a huge smile on her face as he plays up to the camera. There's even a photobomb from Jamiroquai singer Jay Kay.

Captioning the photo, she wrote: "Throwing it back to 2003 at the GQ Awards with @vernonkay and @jamiroquaihq @davebenett #TBT #GoodTimes."

Fans were quick to comment, with one amazed by their ageless appearance, writing: "Neither of you have aged!" Another said: "Aw lovely pic. Great couple." A third added: "You two are a beautiful couple."

Earlier this week, Tess confessed she cried after watching Vernon break down in tears on Wednesday's I'm a Celebrity. The dad-of-two was overcome with emotion after his co-star Beverley Callard won him a spa day treat following a trial at Gwrych Castle.

Completely surprised, Vernon said: "Bev, thank you." To which, Beverley remarked: "You're crying." However, Vernon joked: "I'm not crying" as he wiped away tears from his eyes.

Watching the heartfelt moment unfold, Tess wrote: "This made me well up [crying emoji] so sweet of @beverleycallard."
