‘Subtlety wasn’t going to work’: I’m A Celebrity winner Giovanna Fletcher jokes about how her secret hand signal to her sons was ‘clocked’ by fans
The author, 35, took to Instagram on Friday to share a picture from when she emerged victorious from Gwrych Castle in North Wales, and held her thumb to her nose and wiggled her fingers.
The mother-of-three claimed she wasn’t able to use a more subtle signal as her sons Buzz, six, Buddy, four, and Max, two, weren’t going to understand it.
‘Subtlety wasn’t going to work’: I’m A Celebrity winner Giovanna Fletcher joked on Friday about how her secret hand signal was ‘clocked’ by fans on the show
In a lengthy caption, she claimed: ‘Yes… I know it was clocked. I tried to find a discreet ‘signal’ with the boys so they knew I was thinking of them while I was away…
‘They’re 6,4 and 2, so subtlety (like a little ear tug) wasn’t going to work on them. We decided to go big,’ she joked, referencing Vernon Kay’s signal that he sent to his wife Tess Daly and their daughters Phoebe, 16, and Amber, 11.
Giovanna went on: ‘I can’t tell you how much it meant when @antanddec started doing it back! it’s certainly the little things that get you in there!!
Message: On the show Giovanna would hold her thumb to her nose and wiggle her fingers as her sons Buzz, six, Buddy, four, and Max, two, weren’t going to understand something subtle

‘I know, I know… I’ve become one of those people who harps on about the past, but I can’t help it!
‘This time one week ago I was sat around the @imacelebrity camp fire with @vernonkay and @jordannorth1 – two amazing men who made me laugh endlessly in the castle. Vernon was thoughtful, hilarious and smart while Jordan filled us all with pride as he took on each new trial with more and more courage and bravery.
‘The whole experience would’ve been completely different if it weren’t for my superb camp mates (who I love endlessly). Oh to be in a bubble in Wales!! Xxx’
Gushing: Giovanna went on: ‘I can’t tell you how much it meant when @antanddec started doing it back! it’s certainly the little things that get you in there!!’
Earlier this week it was revealed Giovanna had bagged her first television role after winning the first ever UK series of I’m A Celebrity amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Giovanna, who is known for her podcast about being a mother, will co-host The Toddler Club At Home on CBeebies in January alongside current host Nigel Clark.
The show is a spin-off from The Baby Club and will invite toddlers to sing and dance along from their living rooms.
It will explore numbers, shapes and patterns as well as everyday activities and introduce new soft-toy characters the Toddler Twins – Benjee Bear and Bailee Bear.
She said: ‘As a mum of three lively young boys, I’m all too aware of the challenges facing parents at home and the importance of parent to toddler contact and play.
‘While families are still unable to visit toddler groups in person, I’m hugely excited to share The Toddler Club At Home with everyone so that they can join in, in the comfort of their own homes.’
