Sam Quek was able to speak to her boyfriend in the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' jungle by writing "143" on her hat
Sam Quek sent her boyfriend secret messages when she was in the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' jungle.
The hockey player was banned from speaking to anyone from the outside world while she was trapped in the camp for three weeks, but she still managed to tell her beau Tom Mairs she loves him on the sly by writing the numbers "143" on her hat.
And, when she was given the boot from the competition last weekend, the 28-year-old beauty arrived back to the Palazzo Versace Australia - where the contestants and their families stay while the show is on going - to find Tom had returned the sweet gesture by carving "143" into a series of rose petals scattered on their bed.
In scenes that will air in the coming out show on Wednesday (07.12.16), Sam can be seen being met by her boyfriend at the end of the bridge when hosts Ant and Dec finish grilling her on camp life as she burst into tears in front of photographers.
Sam came fourth in the competition but Tom was expecting her to be one of the first celebrities to leave the camp and ended up wearing his "eviction shirt" eight times before the Olympic athlete finally parted ways with jungle life.
He said: "This is my eviction shirt, I've worn it eight times. Seriously, you were not meant to last this long."
Sam added: "I can't believe it, I just thought as long as I'm not out first anything else is a bonus. I've just seen Tom's phone and it's all coming back to me that there's life outside of the jungle."
On the drive back to the hotel, Sam called her mother and couldn't stop tears rolling down her face as she reminisced on her time on the show and how much support she's been given from fans in the outside world.
She said: "I love you, I miss you. I'm emotional I'm welling up now speaking to you. I can't believe I came fourth ...
"For me fourth is just as good as first. I just went in being myself and one of the big things I wanted to be was a role model to younger girls and say, yeah, sport is cool."
'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! Coming Out Show' will air tonight on ITV at 8pm.
