Ben initially teased: ‘I can’t wait for you to go away for a month.’
‘I can neither confirm nor deny,’ Kate replied, before Ben said: ‘What’s the cryptic clue for that one? Kangaroo testic-?’
The laughing presenter then said: ‘What?! Hello. It’s Friday, but it’s not that kind of Friday!’
The mother-of-two has previously teased that her children Darcey, 13, and William, ten, are desperate to see her on the popular ITV programme.

Meanwhile, reigning Jungle King, Harry Redknapp, has thrown his support behind the decision, telling The Mirror Online: ‘He’s crazy. Whether he can keep his cool for three weeks, that’s the question.’
‘He’d be great fun. He’s a great lad, Wright – I love him.’
The Sun claims Nadine Coyle will be heading down under as TV bosses are keen to hear about the Girls Aloud feud.

The radio host is said to have caught producers eyes, as the son of Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp and Wham! star Shirley has a plethora of showbiz pals.
Back in 2017, Roman told Digital Spy: ‘The only reality show I would do is I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! purely because I would get a holiday and get to see Ant & Dec every day!’
