Melanie Sykes broke down in tears when she received a care package which included photos of her young children on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'
Melanie Sykes broke down in tears on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' after receiving a care package from home which contained photos of her kids.
The TV presenter couldn't hold back the tears when she saw the pictures of sons, Roman, 12, and 10-year-old Valentino - her kids from her first marriage to Daniel Caltagirone.
And her close friend Adam Phillips believes the 44-year-old star - who won nine out of 10 stars on the Hells Kitchen task on the Sunday night show (23.11.14) - will miss her children terribly while she's in the Australian jungle.
After watching his friend break down in tears as she received photographs of her children in camp, Adam said: "Missing her kids is going to be an integral part for her as time goes on. That is going to be her biggest problem. They are a massive part of her life and she spends all day, every day with them."
He added: "They have been watching the show and, needless to say, they are really proud of her."
Melanie's jungle campmate, Kendra Wilkinson was also very emotional as she opened up her care package from home.
The 29-year-old former Playboy model weeped as she opened her box to discover the photographs of her two children, Hank, four, and her six-month-old baby Alijah.
Her father, Eric Wilkinson told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "The kids are having a really hard time missing Kendra. The whole family is having a hard time without her."
Newsreader Michael Buerk was ecstatic when he found a sachet of cashew nuts in his box from home, while reality star Nadia Forde received her favourite childhood doll.
