When Sam Thompson returns from his trip to Australia, he is in for a fantastic surprise.
The Made in Chelsea actor was named this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! King of the Jungle, and his sister Louise Thompson has revealed some exciting news regarding his homecoming.
She lavished praise on her brother in an Instagram post that included a video of his two-year-old nephew Leo uttering his name for the first time.
‘As cliché as it is I can’t find a better word than proud @samthompsonuk !!!!! So I’ll just go with proud x 1000000000000000 ,’ she wrote in the caption as she shared a carousel of snaps and videos celebrating his big win.
‘I just received a call from my brother (I happened to be looking at photos of his face on my phone when his name popped up which was a little odd especially since our relationship has been v one sided and only via a tv screen for the last 3 weeks) but I’ve never been more thrilled to hear your voice.
‘Instant tears (unsurprising from me). I can’t wait to have you back on home soil so that I can have one of your infamous hugs and also to see that wonderfully expressive face. xxxxxxxxx
‘Missed ya. Ps. Leo can finally say your name and this took no prompting ’
Sam’s fiancée Zara McDermott posted a sweet video of the entire family erupting in applause in joy of his triumph, and he had seen it before turning his phone back on.
Sam came on Lorraine to discuss his achievement and admitted that he sobbed when he saw all of his loved ones so thrilled for him.
He told the presenter: ‘It made me cry, that’s all my nearest and dearest. I’ve never had that amount of people need to support me for anything and it’s just such an amazing feeling.
‘It’s actually quite overwhelming. I’m a very, very, very, very lucky person to have that around me so I can’t wait – I owe a lot of people a lot of dinners.’
Sam confessed that he missed his ‘little goose’ and that she had been sleeping on his side of the bed since he’d been gone after seeing a video message from Zara.
Zara, 26, definitely missed him when she shared a video of everyone watching the finale with her 1.9 million Instagram followers immediately after the star was voted King of the Jungle.
‘The moment we all found out… OUR KING OF THE JUNGLE!!!!!!!,’ she captioned the sweet video.
The family erupted in delight as the announcement was made, with Zara shouting and weeping as she hugged everyone.
