Stacey Solomon’s children were ‘annoyed’ over her tattoo tribute to husband Joe Swash, who was eliminated from I’m a Celebrity earlier this week.
He also has a son called Harry from a previous relationship with Emma Sophocleous, while Solomon has two other children – 15-year-old Zachary and 11-year-old Leighton.
While back in the jungle for I'm A Celebrity South Africa, Swash admitted he’d been desperately missing his blended family.
However, he has since revealed that some of their kids weren’t best pleased with Solomon after she unveiled a tattoo tribute to him, having already promised to get something as a nod to the children.
Sort Your Life Out presenter Solomon had previously joked she was going through a ‘midlife crisis’ when she wanted to get a tattoo for her kids.
But it turns out she’s got one in honour of her hubby.
He said: "I was so surprised! She was going off to do one for the kids and get one for the kids, but I don't think she could make her mind up so she got me done.
"The kids were so annoyed about it, they were like 'what's going on here mum?'"
Before being booted out of the South African version of the long-running ITV show, Swash admitted he was missing Solomon and the children.
Campmates Myleene Klass and Jordan Banjo had noticed 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 them.
Speaking to cameras later, he 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."
Elsewhere in the episode, he also gushed about how much he owed to his I'm A Celebrity experience, since it's where he first met Solomon - who won the series in 2010 when he was presenting the follow-up show Extra Camp.
"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."
