I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! winner Kian Egan said being apart from his wife Jodi Albert made him realise just how much he loves her. Aww!

Speaking following his victorious win last night (8 December), Kian has reflected on the moment he was briefly reunited with Jodi on 27 November following his Halfway Holiday win.

The couple broke down in tears when they saw each other and Kian says it suddenly hit him how much he had missed her.

Westlife's Kian, who has a two-year-old son called Koa with Jodi, told Daybreak viewers: "It was a very emotional moment. It was just so special to see her in such a weird circumstance I suppose.

"It just made me realise how much I loved her and how much I missed being away from her for so long."

The Irish singer later appeared on Lorraine and also revealed that he and Jodi had been banned from speaking to each other in the lead up to the jungle too.

"We had zero communication a week before I actually went in," Kian said. "And it's not just not seeing her, it's the no communication, not being able to know how our little boy was doing.

"Normally I'm the type of guy when I'm at home that makes sure everything is OK, so it's that kind of thing that plays on your mind when you're in there."

Although Jodi flew out to Australia to meet Kian two weeks ago, Koa stayed behind in the UK.

"It's still breaking my heart that I haven't seen him, but we're coming home tomorrow so it's getting closer and closer. I can't wait to just grab him and kiss his little face off!" Kian added.
