Their fears were allayed, however, with Kai confirming that he “was a bit uneasy” in the show’s Instagram story. The video, which took place behind the scenes, saw the couple reunited, before they were amusingly run over by another contestant.

“Sorry, I just have to put on some Vicks [vapour rub] on his chest,” said Kaye, who was the first celebrity to be eliminated from the show. ” All my excuses. I haven’t been here. I’ve had a bit of a bad time this week – but we’re back together,” Kai said, before Kaye joked, “We’re back. The things I have to do!”

As they reunited, the pair were interrupted by comedian Ellie Taylor, who joked, “God! Sorry, I’m gonna leave you guys. Crikey!”
