Vernon Kay comes in third place on I’m A Celebrity leaving fans gutted

Vernon Kay has come in third place on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! 2020.

The TV presenter, best known for his roles as hosts of All Star Family Fortunes and Beat the Stars, was in the final tonight along with BBC Radio 1 DJ Jordan North and popcast star Giovanna Fletcher.

The 46-year-old's journey on the iconic ITV show, hosted by Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, saw him take on Bush Tucker Trials in Wales instead of the show's usual location in Australia due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Nevertheless, it was one cracking season which saw mainly highs from all of the stars but Vernon especially had a rollercoaster.

The campmates quickly became rather family-like and have spent the last three weeks mocking each other.

This week Beverley Callard took a swipe at Vernon which left them unable to stop laughing after a conversation about the show Splash which Vernon used to host.

Beverley, in a brutal fashion and not realising Vernon hosted it, said it was the "most stupid programme ever".

Vernon was also left in tears before opening a package from his wife Tess Daly and their two daughters.

Tess and the girls had sent him a grey checkered blanket, knowing he likes to cosy up under a rug while watching telly.

Living together in their Buckinghamshire home, Vernon previously admitted his goal in taking part in the show was to make his family proud.

Ahead of the series debut last week, he said: "Mainly though I am doing it for my daughters, Phoebe and Amber.

"It's a show they watch on a regular basis and they get behind the people in the camp. I think the fact I am involved in it will make it even more fun for them!"

And he's certainly not disappointed his family as he made it to the final!

The star also left viewers in hysterics when he saw live on air despite being warned not to swear.

In spite of hosts Ant, 45, and Declan, 45, forbidding foul language at the start of the trial, the star couldn't be prevented from shouting out the four-letter-word "f**k".

Luckily, fans saw the humour. One tweeted: "Ant and Dec say no swearing and yet Vernon screams F-word out loud, hilarious."

During his leaving exit with Ant and Dec, Vernon said he was grateful for his time on the show.

Vernon said: "I'm over the moon to get 3rd place, I really am.

"It was well and truly awesome.

"There was some real strong characters in there. Last night was a real shock with Shane [Richie]."
