I’m A Celebrity’s Giovanna Fletcher sends her children a surprise sweet treat

She is currently in Wales filming the first UK series of I’m A Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here.

But Giovanna Fletcher still managed to surprise her children ahead of her first scenes in the ITV show on Sunday. 

The author, 35, has bid farewell to her family for three weeks after setting off for Gwrych Castle in Abergele, but managed to leave them a sweet treat in the form of a box of brownies. 

Thinking of you: Giovanna Fletcher surprised her three children with a sweet treat the evening before the much-anticipated I’m A Celebrity launch show is set to air on Sunday evening

Giovanna’s husband Tom shared an adorable video of their three sons gathering around to open the unexpected gift on his Instagram page on Saturday evening.

Buzz, six, could be heard reading out the touching note from Giovanna, which says: ‘Dear Tom, Buzz, Buddy and Max! A little treat to let you know I’m thinking of you! I love you all so very much. Mummy. xxx’

As his brother read out the note, four-year-old Buddy yelled ‘cake’ in excitement as he tried to guess what is in the mystery box.

But their younger sibling Max, two, seemed less interested in the touching present, hilariously putting on a pair of sunglasses upside down and toddling away instead.

The boys then open the box and delightedly grab the tasty brownies that were waiting inside for them, with Tom, 35, reminding them to say ‘thank you Mummy’ as they tucked straight in.

Alongside the sweet clip, Tom penned: ‘Well, @mrsgifletcher might be sleeping on the cold, damp floor of a (probably) haunted castle but she’s still looking after us! 

‘I was on the fence before but she’s definitely got my vote now. #teamgi #imaceleb’

The McFly star then shared another humorous snap showing himself holding up a piece of delicious brownie as he admitted he desperately ‘needed this brownie’.

He captioned the picture: ‘I’ve never needed anything as much as I needed this brownie today.’

Giovanna is among ten celebrities joining the first ever UK series of I’m A Celebrity this year, after coronavirus saw the show relocate to Wales from Australia.  

Speaking to MailOnline ahead of the launch, she previously admitted that while she gave up caffeine for the series, she was worried how she’ll cope with camp food shortages as she gets ‘a bit tetchy’ when she’s hungry.

But she added that she feels ready to take on the day-to-day challenges of living in the castle, including the infamous ‘dunny’ – which this year has been swapped for an outdoor privy in keeping with the new castle setting.

She said: ‘In terms of camp life I think I’ll be fine, I’ve camped, I’ve done things like that before so I don’t feel like that, we’re gonna get hammocks so that will be nice.

‘I’ll be interested to see what kind of role I’ll take on in the camp. I’ve been told to do the toilet on day one and not day four, as on day four the rice and beans have taken their toll.’ 

The presenter said she’d she asked Tom’s bandmates Dougie Poynter and Matt Willis for advice on how to tackle the show, as they were both series champions, but got mixed results.

She told MailOnline: ‘Dougie didn’t really give me any advice, but Matt was really excited AND HIS advice was to go in and be yourself and have the best time ever! 

‘You can’t guess what’s gonna happen and react to things so you’ve just got to go in and it’s really hard and that’s part of the experience. So the general advice is to go in and have fun.’ 

Joining Giovanna in the castle this year are presenter Vernon Kay, 46, Olympic champion Sir Mo Farah, 37, and Corrie icon Beverley Callard.

Also competing for the title of King or Queen of the Castle will be AJ Pritchard, 26; Shane Richie, 56; Jessica Plummer, 28; Victoria Derbyshire, 52; Hollie Arnold, 26, and Jordan North, 30.

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly will host the series once again, while Vick Hope will be fronting The Daily Drop, a brand-new series following all camp activity, available on ITV Hub every morning after the main show.

The Geordie duo, the contestants and crew will be tested for COVID-19 every three days throughout the series, with the campmates able to mix freely while they live in the camp as they form their own bubble.

The 2020 series, which starts on ITV on Sunday evening, is expected to last 20 days – two shorter than normal.
