Joe Swash breaks down in tears as he opens up about relationship with wife Stacey Solomon

Joe Swash breaks down in tears as he opens up about relationship with wife Stacey Solomon

Joe is missing home.

Joe Swash broke down in tears on the latest episode of I'm A Celebrity South Africa, after admitting that he desperately misses Stacey Solomon and their kids.

The former King of the Jungle is back in red shorts again with other I'm A Celeb fan-favourites including Shaun Ryder, Gillian McKeith, Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo, and Myleene Klass.

But, he's starting to realise that he's a very 'different person' this time around, and is missing home a lot more now that he has a wife and kids back at home.

On Monday night (8 May), Joe's campmates noticed that he looked a little bit down, and when they asked him if he was alright, he couldn't hold back his tears.

"I'm fine, you know... I don't know how to get rid of the feeling, you know what I mean?" he told Myleene Klass and Jordan Banjo.

Speaking to cameras, he later confessed: "I am finding this a lot harder than I did the first time around.

"I was a different person the first time. This time around, there's so much at home waiting for me.

"You know, everyone wants to do their family proud, and I want to do the same."

Later in the episode, Joe gushed about how much he owed to his I'm A Celebrity experience, since it's where he first met Stacey Solomon, who won the series in 2010 when he was presenting the follow-up show Extra Camp.

Joe Swash couldn't help but let out a few tears while he was thinking about his family at home.

"Honestly, I genuinely feel like I’m the biggest winner ever from anyone who’s done this show. It gave me my wife, my kids, a career for over a decade," he told his fellow campmates.

"Growing up, all I wanted to be was a dad and have a family. The jungle came along and I met my wife on the jungle.

"I have two amazing kids, me and Stacey have had since we’ve been in the jungle. I feel like I’ve won this already. I don’t know where I would be without it. I’d just be that dude that was on EastEnders years ago. Now, I’m Stacey Solomon’s husband."

Meanwhile, speaking to cameras, he confessed: "I find it hard to talk about the jungle without getting emotional. I wear my heart on my sleeve anyway. You’re going to have to bear with me.

"I feel very blessed, very lucky. It was my chance to come back and say thank you. You pulled me through some very dark times and gave me everything I ever wanted."

I'm not crying, YOU'RE crying!

Joe and Stacey started dating six years after they first met on I'm A Celebrity: Extra Camp, with Joe eventually confessing that he'd fancied Stacey ever since he first laid eyes on her.

The two, who tied the knot just last year, are parents to Rex, three, Rose, one, and baby Belle.

They also raise Joe's son Harry, 15, who he shares with his ex, and Stacey's sons Zachary, 15, and Leighton, 11, who she shares with previous exes.
