Adam's fiancée Caroline Daly opens up in the new issue of Reveal about how she and Teddy, two, are coping without seeing the Emmerdale star, who has been in the jungle for two weeks.

"I'm missing him terribly," says Caroline. "We're really close and we're always on the phone to each other if we're not together."

"Teddy really misses him too," she continues. "He is the spitting image of Adam, and that's the only comfort I've had while he's been so far away from us."

"I can see so much of Adam in Teddy – it's like I've got a mini Adam with me," she adds. "Teddy's got a toy telephone and he keeps picking it up saying, 'Daddy? Daddy' down the imaginary line. He's missing his daddy a lot, but he does know he's in the jungle."

Before heading to the Australian jungle, Adam admitted being away from little Teddy would be the toughest challenge.

"I am going to miss him the most," Adam, 28, said. "I have never been away from him for more than a week. I am not going to see him for a month. It's going to be so hard."

Caroline and Teddy are now Down Under waiting to be reunited with Adam whenever he leaves the jungle, while Adam's twin Scott Thomas and his girlfriend Kady McDermott are also en route to Oz.

Scott told New magazine last week: "Adam is the most amazing dad. He's so close to his son, he'll be missing him like mad."

Adam and Caroline, a dance teacher, became engaged in Dubai last year.

In a recent challenge, Adam got the chance to speak briefly to Caroline on the phone. In a tearful exchange, Caroline told him the whole family missed him but he was doing "amazing" in the jungle.
