I’m A Celebrity star Owen Warner choked back tears on Friday’s Loose Women show as he reunited with his jungle co-star Charlene White.

The Hollyoaks star, 23, became emotional as she detailed her bond with the newsreader, 42, telling the panel how Charlene “looked after me” in the jungle while her mother was away.

Owen and Charlene spent two weeks with their camp mates in the Australian jungle for the ITV show – which was eventually won by lioness Jill Scott.

Owen had initially believed that Charlene was not on the show as he had been interviewed earlier by Kaye Adams, Stacey Solomon, Judi Love and Nadia Sawalha.

However, she came out and surprised him, before they discussed their time on the Ant and Dec show together.

Owen said of Charlene: “This woman here is amazing, beautiful inside and out – what a leader too.”

Fighting back tears, he continued, “Charlene taught me so much in there about myself…she really looked after me.”

“I’m so close to my mom and my family and not having that. to have no one to turn to when you need it, when you need help… and to have someone like Charlene.

Owen continued: “Every time I feel bad, every time I don’t, Charlene is right there. Not pushing me, not trying to get answers from me, not digging what’s wrong. not with me…just cheer me up and be there.

“Having someone like that is just wonderful.”

It comes after Owen revealed the tough times he endured in the jungle, admitting he was wrong to believe he would “take up” the challenge.

He told MailOnline he was confident for the show as he hoped his high level of fitness would help him get through his time at camp.

But after feeling homesick and dealing with low points due to not eating properly, which is what Owen struggled the most with his camp mates, he quickly realized that the jungle was not an easy task.

Asked about his toughest moment at camp, Owen replied, “Which one? It was amazing in there, but it was very, very, hard.

“I went into it with the mentality that I was going to break it. I thought, I’m an athletic geezer, I can handle challenges, I didn’t think much about food, and I didn’t think about the missing family aspect.
