I’m A Celebrity’s Josie Gibson breaks down in tears as she struggles being apart from her son Reggie, 5: ‘I just miss my little boy’
Emotions are starting to run high in the camp as the second week of I’m A Celebrity draws to a close.
And This Morning presenter Josie Gibson was overcome with emotion as she broke down in tears in the toilet during Friday’s episode.
Sensing the TV star was feeling down, Danielle Harold went to check on Josie as she asked: ‘What’s the matter?’
Struggling to control her tears, Josie sniffed: ‘I just miss my little boy. I shouldn’t have ever left him this long.’
Josie’s son Reggie, five, has been staying with his dad Terry Bond – the pair started dating in 2017 but split up in 2018 when Reggie was five months old.

The EastEnders actress rushed to comfort the mother as she reassured her: ‘100% you should, you’re showing him that you’re a strong mum, strong woman. So proud of you babe.’
She continued: ‘I hate seeing you upset. You’re the best mum.’
Speaking in the Bush Telegraph she admitted: ‘Just had a little wobble. You just feel very guilty. I’ll never leave him this long again, ever.’
But it won’t be long until Josie will be reunited with her son as this Sunday marks the start of their final week in camp.
And Reggie has now touched down at Brisbane Airport for his first trip to Australia to ensure he’s there to greet his mum at the bridge when she leaves I’m A Celebrity.
Sporting a Team Josie T-shirt while sitting on a baggage trolley, Reggie proudly declared: ‘I think that my mummy’s going to win’.
Reggie, who is used to sleeping with his mum every night, was joined by the This Morning presenter’s best friend Mia Williams, also from Bristol, who has been looking after Reggie and her son, Romey Williams for the journey down under.
The trio touched down at Brisbane Airport at 9.45am and Ms Williams said: ‘He’s coped really well considering she’s been gone for a couple of weeks now.

‘It’s the longest they’ve been apart, it’s obviously tough all around but he’s been dealing with it well but it’s tough for her you can see that.
‘She is missing him but she’s doing it for him – she wants him to see her on the TV.’
It comes as the second time Josie has broken down in tears during her time in the jungle.
During Thursday night’s episode Josie screamed: ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’ as she quit the Barbaric Barbershop trial.
The star was surrounded by huge spiders by her face – after she was voted to receive the eight-legged critter by the public.
Josie put in a valiant effort to get the stars but soon began swearing in fright and had to quit the trial – after Nella Rose and Nigel Farage quit their respective challenges previously.
In the end she yelled: ‘Ah, get me out of here!’ and fell to the floor crying as she took her head out of the box.
A very panicked Josie said: ‘Sorry, oh my god’ as Ant and Dec asked if she was alright.
After the end of the trial she admitted: ‘I’m petrified of spiders. I was hoping I might be able to get rid of that fear but because they’re coming from you from behind, I don’t know what it was.’
‘I am ok. I’ve got to get over this! It’s not going to harm me. You can’t help it, if you’re frightened or scared of something.’
