I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! returned to our screens with a bang last night, following weeks of anticipation regarding how this year's big-name stars will interact.
Only time will tell what a blend of ex-politicians, Made In Chelsea stars and, well, Britney Spears' sister will look like, as the group prepare to go without the comforts of home and family life for over three weeks.
And during last night's dramatic premier, it looked as though one of the 2023 campmates was already struggling without the company of his loved ones.
"Is it just me or is Marvin thumping his heart a sign for Rochelle," one viewer tweeted during the ITV show as Humes was seen repeatedly and discreetly tapped his heart with his hand.
Another added: "Awhhh seems like Marvin is tapping his heart to show Rochelle how much he loves her. He must miss his family so much already".
"Secret signal from Marvin 100%," a third suggested.
Speaking of his decision to join the gruelling reality show, he told viewers in a pre-recorded VT: "Rochelle thinks I'm crazy for saying yes - could be like a midlife crisis but instead of buying a sports car, I'm going on I'm A Celeb."
Speaking to The Mirror ahead of his jungle journey, Marvin revealed that Rochelle and their three children - daughters Alaia-Mai, 10, and Valentina, six, as well as three-year-old son Blake - had left a note for him in the suitcase he took Down Under.
"It said how much they loved me and told me how proud of me they are. My 10-year-old [Alaia-Mai] said, 'Daddy, I'm so proud of you conquering your fears, just don’t say no to anything and do your best'.
"That’s from my 10-year-old. You know, so, so sweet that she’s telling me to conquer my fears and get stuck in. I just want to make them proud."
Marvin, 38, went on: "My 10-year-old said to Rochelle that she doesn’t like going on roller coasters.
"And when we left she said: 'Daddy because you're doing this and conquering your fear, when you get out, I want to conquer my fear and I want to go on a roller coaster with you'."
