I'm A Celeb's AJ Pritchard's Grandma Has Died But He Won't Be Told Until After Leaving The Castle
The news was revealed by brother Curtis Pritchard, who took to his social media to pay tribute to his late grandma.
He wrote: "Life is beautiful, life is incredible, life is magical... But sadly it doesn't last forever. RIP, I love you Nanna.
"Nanna words literally cannot describe how much I love you, and forever will love you and the memories of you. You really have been a massive part of my life and helped me to be the man I am today."
In a statement he went on to explain: "It is following our grandad's wishes that myself and AJ are to carry on with the current projects we are committed to.
"Grandad said to myself and AJ that it would break his heart for us to stop what we were doing as Nanna had such pride in our work.

"AJ therefore discussed with the family before entering the castle that if something did happen to Nanna whilst he was away, that he wouldn't want to be told until he left the castle and that in her honour he would complete his commitment to the show, with a view to doing her and the family proud.
"As Grandad and Nanna would have wished for, AJ will stay in the castle and continue making her proud wherever she is watching from."
Tributes have been pouring in since Curtis announced the sad news. One fan even commented: "So sorry for your loss. There was a little robin in the castle on last nights show - your Nanna is with AJ."
And the comment seemed to touch Curtis, who replied: "It gave me goosebumps when I saw that. Nanna is looking over AJ right now."
An ITV spokesperson told Tyla: "We have spoken to AJ's family and will comply with their and AJ's wishes. We send them our sincere condolences at this time."
Our hearts go out to Curtis, AJ and the entire family.
