James Haskell was there to meet Caitlyn Jenner when she exited the I’m A Celeb jungle.
Caitlyn opened up about her famous family during her time in the jungle, admitting when she spoke to Ant and Dec she really missed her kids and grandkids.
However, the former Olympian had no one to greet her when she finally walked across the bridge and back to civilisation, so co-star James gave her a hug instead.
The campmates are said to have had an emotional reunion after the ex England rugby player asked to be the one on the other side of the bridge.
An insider told MailOnline he wanted to “make sure she had someone there”.
An eyewitness told the publication: “Caitlyn walked over the bridge, exclaimed to James, ‘It’s you!’ They embraced, both were welling up.
“James accompanied Caitlin throughout the entire eviction process and then when it was over they went for a Starbucks together to talk about the show and life in general. There’s a definite real friendship there.”
Caitlyn was later surprised by partner Sophia Hutchins in her hotel, revealing she’d been waiting at the Palazzo Versace for her close friend.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star shared a sneak-peek at their reunion on Instagram Stories, saying: “'Just got out the jungle and finally getting my hair and make-up done and boy do I need it.
“Haven't had it in weeks but when I came out the jungle, where I had a lot of great friends but I had a big surprise when I got back to the hotel... Sophia's here!”
Friday night was a double elimination, with Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle also exiting the show. I’m A Celebrity continues at 9pm on ITV.
