The 46-year-old will battle it out to be the first King of the Castle alongside Radio 1 DJ Jordan North and Giovanna Fletcher when it comes to the crunch tonight after Shane Richie was given the boot last night, and Tess was understandably bursting with pride.
Sharing a video on her Instagram stories, the Strictly Come Dancing host, who admitted she’s been unable to sleep while the father of their two children has been away, wrote: ‘He’s in the final, I can’t believe it. My heart is just racing, I’m literally so excited and nervous, and just overwhelmed.
‘Thank you so much to everybody who voted for Vernon. See you at the final!’
She finished the clip by simply cheering: ‘Yes!’
Tess revealed early in the week, Vernon’s two daughters Phoebe and Amber have been glued to the TV watching their dad.

‘Well, they love it,’ she said on Lorraine. ‘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 is school nights a lot of the time.
‘On a Friday night she is allowed to, so she did see it when he said “hello”. I looked at their faces and they just lit up.
‘They miss him, they haven’t seen him for four and a half weeks now because they were isolating for two weeks before going in.’
Vernon is currently an outside bet according to bookmakers, with Giovanna and Jordan almost neck and neck to win the 2020 series of I’m A Celebrity in a two horse race.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! concludes tonight at 9pm on ITV.
