The 51-year-old star has been so worried about her man as he tries to cope with the castle that she's been having dreams about taking on the infamous trials herself, including one nightmare where she had to face snakes with her 'Strictly Come Dancing' co-host Claudia Winkleman.

Appearing on ITV's 'Lorraine' on Tuesday (01.12.20), she said: "Honestly, I've barely slept. I don't think I've slept over five or six hours since he went in there.

"I wake up - the other day, I woke up dreaming I was doing a challenge with Claudia. It involved snakes and being underground, and it was terrifying.

"It woke me up! I'm living and breathing it every step of the way, but loving it."

Tess has been missing her husband, and while she's worried he's too cold or "not eating" enough, she is proud of his efforts on the show.

She added: "Oh my goodness, it feels like he's been away forever ... He's doing brilliantly, it's lovely watching him.

"But it's nerve-wracking, really is, worrying about him being cold, not eating. He must be freezing!"

Their daughters have been tuning in too, and they were both thrilled when Vernon sent them a message during a recent episode.

Tess said: "They love it. Phoebe, our 16 year old, watches it every night with me.

"Amber, who is 11, isn't allowed to stay up that late because obviously it's school nights a lot of the time.

"On a Friday night she's allowed to, so she did see it on the night he said hello down the camera. I looked at their faces and they were just lit up, they were delighted.

"They miss him, they've not seen him for four and a half weeks now, because they were in isolation for two and a half weeks before they went into the camp. They love watching him."
