Vernon Kay and Tess Daly have finally been reunited - and the Strictly Come Dancing host made sure she prepared a late night meal in order to help her husband gain some weight.

Vernon shed two and a half stone after living on a substantial diet of rice and beans during his time in Gwrych Castle for I'm A Celebrity. Taking steps to ensure that the 46-year-old, gets back to his old self, Tess, 51, posted a photo of the delicious meal she had prepared for him.
