The TV star is heading back Down Under to present spin-off show 'Extra Camp', and he shared a snap with partner Stacey Solomon and her six-year-old son Leighton admitting he was finding it tough to leave.

Taking to Instagram, he shared crying emojis alongside the sweet photo and wrote: "Not long now til I have to leave this lot. I'm going to miss these guys xxxxx"

The couple moved in together recently after almost three years together, and Stacey's children - Leighton and 10-year-old Zachary - both live with them full time.

The proud mum admitted she was nervous about taking the next step in their relationship because she's scared of change, but it has been going well.

'Loose Women' star Stacey previously said: "When I moved in with Joe, it was sort of 'oh gosh this is scary and weird' and you get that funny feeling in your tummy.

"It didn't feel...I knew it wasn't cold feet, I didn't think 'oh this is going to be terrible' it was just me worrying about a big life change. I can never differentiate between intuition and just life change nerves."

Joe will also be leaving his own son Harry, 11, back in England while he's working in Australia.

Despite missing his family, the former 'EastEnders' actor has admitted he's excited to be returning to the show.

He said in a previous statement: "Good times! Me, Joel [Dommett] and Scarlett [Moffatt] are going to be reunited again on 'Extra Camp'.

"I loved working with them last year, we had such a laugh both on and off screen! I can't wait to see what celebrities are going into the jungle."
