I'm A Celeb's Louise Minchin leaves fans in tears over selfless gesture during phone call

Louise Minchin secured a one minute phone call home on the latest I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!.

The BBC Breakfast star and Kadeena Cox MBE won the coin toss in the Wishing Well challenge and after some discussion, the two women decided that Louise should have the phone call.

Louise spoke to her hubby and her children during the phone call as she fought back tears.

They told her she was doing brilliantly and they were “so totally proud” of what she was doing.

And then her husband David and daughter Mia said they were “going to cry” as they all fought back tears during the emotional phone call.

Even though it was Louise’s call, her fellow campmates seem to be just as emotionally moved, with Kadeena Cox MBE and Snoochie Shy both crying.

Showing her selfless side, Louise then said to her husband: “Phone Kadeena’s mum and say ‘happy birthday’ to her brother.”

Overhearing this, a heartened Kadeena sweetly hugged her fellow campmates, as she was touched by the kind gesture.

Viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the thoughtful exchange.
