Tess Daly admits everything in the house broke while 'soulmate' Vernon Kay was in I'm A Celeb

Tess Daly has admitted that things were a little chaotic at home while Vernon Kay did I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! last year.

The Strictly Come Dancing presenter, 51, said that everything in her house broke while her husband, 46, was away competing on the ITV show, in which he finished third behind Giovanna Fletcher and Jordan North.

She confessed that it made her realise that she really does need Vernon, who she called her "soulmate", around the house.

Speaking to Women's Health, Tess said; "The printer, the dishwasher, the dryer [all broke] – basically everything you need when solo parenting.

"I was like, 'Okay, Vern, I really do need you around the house.'

"We're soulmates, me and Vernon. It's been a ride. And I love him more than ever."

Tess and Vernon married in 2003 and they are parents to two daughters: Phoebe, 16 and 11-year-old Amber.

In the interview, Tess spoke about getting older and said she doesn't feel any different from when she was in her thirties.

She continued: "Confidence comes from cutting yourself some slack.

"I'm in my fifties now. That's still a shock when I say it out loud, because I don't feel any different to when I was in my thirties.

"But I don't fixate on age as a limitation, because it's never held me back...

"Confidence, to me, is just pushing yourself a little bit further than you think you can go, and you'll always surprise yourself."
