Since Caitlyn Jenner entered the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! jungle 11 days ago her famous family have remained rather muted.
Yet MailOnline can reveal that the clan have been tuning in to watch her from home, and were left devastated when she broke down in tears at the start of her journey.
The Olympian, 70, left her family, and her partner Sophia Hutchins, 23, distraught when she broke down and threatened to quit on the first night, and are delighted to see that she’s since turned things around.

A source told MailOnline: ‘When she first went in it was really hard for them to see her upset, just because she is normally the complete opposite, so upbeat and positive.
‘Caitlyn is being completely herself in the jungle and that is why the public are loving her. She is extremely kind and generous so it’s no surprise that she isn’t involved with any of the arguments in the jungle!’
Revealing why the reality star chose to appear on I’m A Celebrity, they continued: ‘Caitlyn wanted to represent who she is and the journey she has been on.
‘Whilst of course she adores her family and will reference them in the jungle occasionally, she is there as herself so that the British public can see who Caitlyn really is and not the person in the TV shows and magazines.’
