Adam is co-presenting this year's Extra Camp with former contestants Emily Atack and Joel Dommett, both of whom finished runners-up in their respective years on the show.

Extra Camp is the the follow-up show of I'm A Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here!, where viewers are treated to behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with contestants after they have been voted off.

This is the first time that Adam has presented the show and it has come with a sacrifice, as he has to miss his best friends' wedding.

However, in a cute gesture, Adam's son Teddy, will be taking his place as best man.


The former Emmerdale star took to Instagram to send his best wishes to his friend as he ties the knot with his fiancee Melissa.

Adam's heartfelt message read: "My best friend gets married tomorrow!! I can’t believe I’m missing your big day my brother !!"

He also said: "To not be there breaks my heart but knowing my lil boy ted will be taking my place as best man is everything!!"

"I know he’ll do me proud !! I love you @ohmyglaze @mils123 have the best day guys !!! Can’t not wait to see you guys when am home!! Love you!"

Meanwhile, Adam has revealed he has "shed a few tears" during his eight weeks away from his family to present the show.

He has admitted he has struggled being away from his wife and two children.

Sharing a video he found on his iPad from his young son, Adam wrote: "When you find this on your iPad!! This was over 5 weeks ago… when I left for India … now here in Australia and still 3 more weeks to go…

"The love I have for this boy is like no other… can not wait to hold him in my arms again and of course the rest of my little fam starting with this beautiful girl @carolinethomas23."

Adam will be on the remaining episodes of Extra Camp tonight and for tomorrow's big final.
