Gemma Collins' mum Joan is looking forward to getting her daughter home to the UK after her sensational exit from I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here.

One person who is excited to have Gemma back on home turf is her mum Joan, who has appeared alongside her daughter on The Only Way Is Essex several times in the past.

Taking to Twitter, Joan said: "@MissGemCollins looking forward to my girl coming home." She then posted the lyrics to the Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell song 'You Are My Sunshine'.

"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey. Home awaits. Love," she added.

Last night, viewers watched Gemma tell her campmates she felt "sick and panicky" before announcing in the Bush Telegraph: "I'm a celebrity get me out of here."

Since then, Gemma has spoken out and explained that a "personal and very serious incident" was playing on her mind the entire time she was in the jungle.

It is believed she was referring to an alleged assault, which took place at Gemma's home before she flew out to Australia.

Along with her own messages, last night Joan retweeted Lydia Bright's mum Debbie who had said: "I hope you know lots of people love you." Joan then added: "Never be shaken in hope. And never get tired of loving."
