Wife of I’m A Celebrity’s Vernon Kay shares throwback photograph of husband enjoying holiday in Llandudno

TESS Daly has shared an old photograph of her husband Vernon Kay enjoying a holiday in Wales.

In the photograph, shared on his Instagram, a younger looking Vernon is walking along West Shore in Llandudno.

He is believed to be with his auntie and uncle.

Vernon is currently starring in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! which is being filmed at Gwrych Castle in Abergele.

During his absence, his wife Tess is looking after his social media accounts.

She captioned the photo: “Found this… Vernon on a family holiday on a beach in Wales. It’s as if he’s been prepping all this time! #Wales #TeamVernon.”

Before he entered the castle, the tv presenter, radio DJ and former model told the Journal: “We as a family growing up always spent a lot of time in this part of the country because my auntie and uncle live in Llandudno, half way up the Great Orme, so I have always been in this part of the county.”

Vernon also revealed his cousin Carol lives just near Gwrych Castle in Abergele, which is the location for the 20th series this year.

“Carol and her husband yeh live in Abergele!” Vernon said.

“Believe it or not, Carol’s husband is the local doctor in Abergele – it is hilarious.

“I spoke to my cousin Carol. Before I came up, I went to visit, socially distanced of course, my auntie and uncle.

“There is no point coming all this way and driving past. They waved from the doorstep and I stood at the end of the driveway.”

Celebrities in the castle include Vernon Kay, Beverley Callard, Shane Richie, Hollie Arnold, AJ Pritchard, Jessica Plummer, Jordan North, Giovanna Fletcher, Victoria Derbyshire and Sir Mo Farah.

Russell Watson and Ruthie Henshall also joined the camp as late entries.

I’m a Celebrity continues on weeknights and Sundays at 9pm on ITV through to its final on Friday, December 4.
