Jamie Lynn replied: ‘But at least all that s*** I could go home to my babies every night, you know? That’s it, that’s all I need in life. It feels a little bit overwhelming. They’re not even close.
‘I’ve got to just do it. I don’t know why I’m being such a baby.’
Sam added: ‘I get it man, I’ve got two cats at home – Albus and Cedric – little fluffy men. Know what I mean? So I get it. Not kids, but I get it.’
Danielle joked: ‘Let it out Sam…’
Later, Jamie Lynn went into the Bush Telegraph and positively added: ‘You have your campmates pull you up and you’re like, ‘I can do this, I can do this’.’
Elsewhere, she also bravely opened up about falling pregnant at the age of 16 as she confided in her campmates last week in the jungle.
She told how wanted to lead as ‘normal’ a life as possible away from the spotlight after giving birth to daughter Maddie – whose father is her ex Casey Aldridge – when she was a teenager in 2008.

‘After I finished Zoey, I had the love of my life, what I thought, I decided to keep the baby. I was 16. The whole world was like, ‘You’re a s**t, you’re horrible your life is over…’
Fred asked: ‘Oh really? You felt it?’
Jamie Lynn said: ‘Oh yeah. Because I got pregnant young and I was on a kids’ show.’
Fred asked: ‘Your parents were good with you?’
Jamie Lynn said: ‘Yeah, they had a lot going on. I just think they were sad I was in that situation but also it’s your baby having a baby.’
She went on: ‘I just wanted to be normal. I wanted my baby to be normal. Everybody told me I was going to be a horrible mum. So I was like I’ve got to raise this baby by myself and I did.’
Jamie Lynn got tearful as she said: ‘When I went away… when I first got pregnant…’
Fred comforted: ‘We don’t have to talk about this…’
Jamie Lynn continued: ‘They didn’t want me to have the baby. A lot of people around me.’
Fred said: ‘But you’ve been amazing. What you’ve done is amazing.’
Jamie Lynn said: ‘When I got out of that, I told my parents I was going to emancipate them, that way I could make my own decisions. I was secretly telling her I was going to doctor’s appointments.
‘I was going to meetings with a lawyer… My poor mum, we put her through it. And so then she was like, she didn’t want me to do that, she knew that would mean I’d probably marry the father and lose my fortune that I’d amassed over the years of working… she said, ‘Just go baby…’
‘It was the first time I was in control. My mum did [come and visit]. I don’t know what’s wrong with me, why I wouldn’t take the easy route sometimes, but I just don’t want to.’
Elsewhere, she also bravely opened up about falling pregnant at the age of 16 as she confided in her campmates last week in the jungle
In the Bush Telegraph Jamie Lynn said: ‘I’m proud of where I’m at now. I don’t share it in a way of being sad or crying about it, but it’s like, I don’t know, I just… I’m really thankful.’
After her emotional first few days in the jungle, Jamie Lynn appeared to have been settling into camp life and successfully Bushtucker Trial last week, bringing home 10 stars.

To which Jamie Lynn replied: ‘Because I maybe cry a lot… I don’t know. Maybe the UK’s giving me an opportunity to give back to my campmates because I do think I’ve been the one struggling a bit more here.
‘So they’ve given me so much support I’d love to return the favour.’
During Tuesday’s show, viewers saw Jamie Lynn break down in tears once again after being offered a small square of chocolate by her campmates.
She began crying after eating the tasty treat, as she took herself away for time alone and was later comforted by former boxer Tony Bellew.
The chocolate bar came as a reward after Marvin, Sam and Tony’s successes at The Misery Hotel, offering the campmates their first taste of chocolate since entering the jungle.
Sam, as team leader, decided to crack open the chocolate for a morale boost after the camp experienced extremely wet weather.
Speaking in the Bush Telegraph he said: ‘The heavens have opened. I’ve never seen a wetter day than right here, right now. In my entire existence by the way.
‘It’s like a monsoon. I’m team leader, I’m on my throne, I want people to be happy.’
Sam rallied his camp by saying: ‘Do you know what we need? A bar of chocolate!’

The news went down very well as everyone began to celebrate and Fred painstakingly chopped the bar up into equal parts.
This meant that by the time the chocolate was divided into 11 parts, everyone only had a tiny morsel to taste each.
Sam said in the Bush Telegraph: ‘The camp went wild! Everyone’s clapping. It was like we’d won the World Cup!’
As they shared out every crumb Tony laughed: ‘The struggle is real!’ and Josie chose to save hers for another time, saying she would have ‘chocolate rice’.
In the Bush Telegraph Tony said: ‘I let a piece of chocolate melt on my tongue in my mouth. That was a very strange thing to do. The jungle has made me soft.’
But the chocolate did not go down well with everyone as Jamie Lynn took herself away from camp to cry.
When she walked back in, fellow campmates Tony and Danielle Harold checked up on her.
Tony said: ‘OK, mate?’ while Danielle gave her a cuddle.
Jamie Lynn said: ‘That little square of chocolate p*****d me off.’
Danielle said: ‘It’s because it gives you a taste of what’s outside…’
Jamie Lynn laughed: ‘I probably should have just let someone eat it. I feel a little better maybe. I just needed to cry.’
Nick encouraged her: ‘Have a little cry J.’
Jamie Lynn in the Bush Telegraph said: ‘I just want more chocolate.’
In the Bush Telegraph Tony said: ‘She’s just getting frustrated, she misses her kids.
‘She’s so far away from home. It’s good to just go and ask someone how they’re doing. Just look out for each other. Everyone should have that attitude with everybody.’
Checking on her near the creek, Tony asked her: ‘How you doing girl?’
Jamie Lynn said: ‘I needed a change of scenery. I was struggling earlier.
‘I’m just tired of sitting up there. I’m sorry I didn’t mean to make you come all the way down here.’
Giving her a hug Tony said: ‘Don’t be silly, I was coming to see how you was.’
