Emotional Alison Hammond in heartbreaking admission about Josie Gibsons absence

I’m A Celeb: Josie Gibson arrives in Australia

Alison Hammond made an emotional confession on This Morning and confessed it’s “horrible” not being able to speak to fellow ITV host Josie Gibson.

Josie, 38, is one of the 10 celebrities confirmed to be in the line-up for the new series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! which airs this Sunday.

The TV host has flown to Australia to prepare for the jungle, but her absence is clearly being felt back home.

Speaking about Josie on Thursday’s edition of This Morning, Alison admitted: “It’s actually made me emotional because I speak to Josie nearly every single day and like I can’t speak to her, it’s horrible!”

Earlier in the week, the show broadcasted a pre-recorded message from Josie outside of Heathrow Airport before she boarded her flight to Australia.

“Hello you guys, so the rumours are true! I am heading to the jungle…. just arrived at Heathrow Airport now,” she revealed.

“I have said an emotional goodbye to Reggie [her son] and I keep thinking to myself: ‘What have I done? What have I signed up for?’

“I’m just hoping that I am a survivor but thank you for all your support! I just hope I get through this because I cannot stand creepy crawlies, I don’t like heights, I don’t like rats and I don’t like snakes… so wish me luck!”

Josie will be heading into the jungle alongside other famous faces such as Danielle Harold, Sam Thompson and Marvin Humes.

However, the ITV show has garnered criticism from fans who are threatening to boycott the programme as ex-politician Nigel Farage has also signed up.

More than 1000 people have sent written complaints after it was reported ITV paid Farage £1.5m to feature in the show.

Best for Britain has launched a new campaign urging the public to pledge to boycott the show.

Farage is a British broadcaster on GB News and a former politician who used to be the leader of the UKIP Party.

I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! starts on Monday November 19 at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
