Viewers have watched friendships blossom between this year's I'm A Celebrity campmates – and there's been some bonding going on behind the scenes too. On Thursday, Scarlett Moffatt's parents Mark and Betty appeared on Good Morning Britain to talk about the show, and how well they have been getting on with the other stars' families.

The couple have been staying in the luxurious Palazzo Versace hotel, along with the former campmates and their loved ones. "All the families have been getting on so well," Betty told hosts Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard via live video link. "We've been having a whale of a time and we've been making some amazing new friends."

Scarlett Moffatt is the current favourite to win I'm A Celebrity

She added: "We've never stayed in a hotel like this before, and I don't think we ever will again! So I think we need to make the most of it. Let's keep Scarlett in the jungle! Please vote and keep her in there."

Scarlett, 26, is currently the bookies' favourite to win the show, closely followed by Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas. Whether she wins or not, it's clear that Mark and Betty are incredibly proud of their daughter.

"I want her to keep doing what she is doing because she is amazing," Mark said. "She's our queen, no matter what happens."

On Wednesday, Carol Vorderman became the fifth celebrity to be voted off I'm A Celebrity. After 19 days in the jungle, the 55-year-old admitted she was relieved to be leaving. Exclaiming "I'm free" as she met with Ant and Dec, Carol said that while she had "genuinely loved every minute" of the show, she felt "ready" to leave because she missed her children.

The TV star also backed Sam Quek or Scarlett to win the series. "I've particularly loved the youngsters, they're the age of my daughter – Scarlett, Joel, Sam, Adam – I sort of looked on them in that kind of way. They sent out good messages that you can be good. I absolutely loved them and I know they've been rooting for me. I love being around fantastic young people."
