“I’ve had a good laugh with Sandra [Harry’s wife] about it.

“Sandra is so wonderful and Harry’s granddaughter Molly, we all hang out together and the families all get on really well.

“I mean she’s only human, he is gorgeous, Jamie I mean…and Harry as well!”

During her interview, Kate also mocked her daughter’s ‘drag queen’ make up in her promotional shots before entering the jungle.

She said: “I never thought Emily, with the glamour roles she’s played, would make such an impact on the nation and be the zeitgeist with a freckly face and just being Emily, which for a mum is really lovely.

She added with a laugh: “When you see the make-up pictures before they went in they all look like drag queens, because you’re so used to seeing them with no make-up on now!”
