I'm A Celeb star Caitlyn Jenner's ex-wife Linda Thompson has described how she cried while she lost her virginity to music icon Elvis Presley in the mid-1970s.
The 69-year-old detailed their four years together in her autobiography A Little Thing Called Life, released in 2016, saying she was a virgin when she met.
Linda was 22 when they met at a private movie screening in 1972 in Memphis, describing herself as a "good Southern girl".
And, despite being used to getting whatever he wanted, Linda wrote that Elvis told her he wouldn't pressure her to have sex before she was ready – and he stuck to his word.

Two months after living together and sharing a bed every night, Linda was ready.
In her book, she wrote: "We were in our king-sized bed on a pedestal, with a mirrored ceiling above us, reflecting Elvis and me tangled in loving entwinement of arms, legs, kisses and deeply felt intimacy. And let's just say if you're not ready then, you're never going to be ready in your whole entire lifetime.

"It was time to go big or go home. It was all so unbelievably romantic, and perfect, and heartfelt, and I knew I was ready to make love with this man I absolutely adored with all of my heart and soul.
"He was so sweet and tender with me, and yet I was overcome by emotion, and I began to cry softly. I believe I had attached so much significance to losing my virginity I needed to shed a few tears over the moment."
She continued: "Looking back, I realise how antiquated my perception of the entire scene was, but remember Elvis was an old-fashioned guy who appreciated the heck out of my innocence. Elvis head me close, comforting me. 'Honey, don't cry,' he said. 'Please don't cry.'"
