Covering her face as she looked at her husband before returning her focus to the camera, she assured: ‘I love Shane, that’s not a “yay, I’m glad Shane has left”.

Meanwhile, her husband Matt appeared keen to seen Jordan get his marching orders on Thursday night, explaining to Emma: ‘I like Jordan, but out of the four of them… Shane is a superstar, man.’ 

Emma has been urging her followers to vote for Giovanna to take home the top prize on the series, which will conclude on Friday night.

In the days leading up to Giovanna’s debut on the show, Emma predicted she would struggle being separated from her children – as she backed her to win the series.

The Voice host said the mother-of-three would ‘desperately miss’ her family after being apart from them for four weeks.

Emma told MailOnline that she would be voting for Giovanna to win as she hoped for her to follow in the footsteps of Dougie Poynter and her husband Matt, who are both former Kings of the Jungle. 

Emma said at the time: ‘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.’ 

Giovanna, who’s married to McFly singer Tom Fletcher, 35, and is a mum to Buzz, six, Buddy, four, and Max, two, travelled to Wales for the show’s first ever UK series.

Emma and Giovanna have been close friends for years after meeting through their musician husbands, who went on to star together in McBusted, a supergroup of their respective bands McFly and Busted. 

Their families often enjoy play dates together, with the friends commenting on the fact they share six children between them, as Emma is a mum to Isabelle, 11, Ace, eight, and Trixie-Grace, four.

Emma had to keep quiet about Giovanna signing up for the show for months before it was revealed and said she and husband Matt tried to offer their best suggestions for the campmate’s luxury item.

‘I have known for ages and haven’t been allowed to talk about it,’ Emma explained. ‘Matt didn’t give her any tips; he just said “you’re going to have the best time of your life”. It’s one of Matt’s most favourite experiences. He had the best time in there.

‘She came round just before lockdown and I asked what her luxury item is going to be – and I said you have to take long, tight, cycling shorts, so then bugs don’t crawl up the places you don’t want them to crawl up! Because no one wants a cockroach up the butt!

‘But she wasn’t allowed to because it’s clothing; you can only take clothing that they provide.’
