Vernon Kay left his campmates in stitches on Friday night’s episode of I’m A Celebrity as he joked the most famous person in his phone was his wife Tess Daly

While Mo Farah boasted of having Thierry Henry and Anthony Joshua on speed dial, the presenter, 46, said Tess, 51, was his most famous person. 

Vernon went on to tell Victoria Derbyshire how he used to dress up in a suit every Saturday when their daughter Phoebe, 16, was little so he could replicate the dances on Strictly with her.

The conversation started when Victoria, 52, asked Mo who were the biggest celebrities in his phonebook.   

‘Probably Thierry Henry’ Mo replied. ‘He’s a nice guy’, before adding that he texts him every couple of weeks.

Victoria pushed and asked who the second most famous person would be. ‘AJ the boxer’ he replied.

‘She’d put a princess dress on, I’d wear a suit and when they were all dancing around we’d replicate that. 

‘Just out the blue one evening she said “daddy, is my mummy Tess Daly because we’d never really explained that mummy works on the telly because obviously mummy’s mummy”.’

Vernon, who married Tess in 2003, is also proud dad to Amber, 11.

Elsewhere in the show, Vernon and Mo, 37, took on a series of maths puzzles in the latest Castle Coin Challenge and dressed as Robin Hood and Friar Tuck.
