I'm A Celeb's Kris Smith gets teary as he reads letter from son Ethan

Oh and FYI, turns out he's actually off the market!

Last night’s episode of I’m A Celeb was all about Valentine’s Day, and when Bachelor host Osher Gunsberg surprised the camp with letters from home, it really pulled at the heartstrings.

Firstly, can we talk about Steve Price CRYING when he read his letter from his daughter?! Definitely something we thought we’d never see!

Kris Smith got a bit teary when he read his letter from his six-year-old son Ethan, who he shares with ex Danni Minogue – and we may have shed a tear too.

“I know that Ethan is watching me and making him proud, so. That has made me want to stay. That is really weird,” he said.

“I know he is in England with my mum and dad until the end of February and I know he will be watching it. It has sparked a fire in me. I want to stay on and do him even prouder.” Awww!

Meanwhile, poor Ash Pollard had her heart broken – on V Day nonetheless – when Kris revealed he has a girlfriend on the outside.

Tegan Martin was pushing for Kris to make a move with Ash, because they were “both single,” before he dropped the bomb, “I’m not single.”

But she’s not the only one who’ll be devastated. Keira Maguire entered the jungle last night, and prior to her going in she revealed she had her sights on the hunky male model.

“I feel like Kris is just one of those people that women do kind of fall for and go gaga over,” Keira revealed to NW, before claiming: “This is my time.”

Kris and Keira have been close for a while, and are often on each other’s arms at red carpet events.

“We’ve seen her at events with him and she won’t let him out of her sights,” an insider revealed to NW.

“At one event late last year in Bondi, [former Bachelorette suitor] Michael Turnbull was trying to chat her up and she rushed away, straight to Kris’s side – she didn’t want Kris thinking she was into anyone else.”

Basically - “What Keira wants, Keira gets – and she wants Kris,” added the source. Awks!

Later in the show, Kris admitted to Ash that the woman he is dating is in fact an ex-girlfriend he is “reconnecting with.”

“I have got a lot of feelings for her. I am reconnecting with my ex and everything else. It is fresh. We are talking again about fixing things up,” he said.
