I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'s Sam Thompson showed his support for Jamie Lynn Spears after she became overwhelmed.

The US actress was left upset over missing her children back in the States and expressed her wishes to be with them. EastEnders star Danielle Harold joined Sam in comforting Jamie, but things soon took an odd turn as he tried to express his own upset.

He said: "I get it man, I've got two cats at home - Albus and Cedric - little fluffy men. Know what I mean? So I get it. Not kids, but I get it."

Things turned emotional for Jamie Lynn

Earlier, Jamie Lynn had confessed to feeling emotionally weak. Danielle reassured her, saying: "You're so strong. This is tough babe, tough. So tough. It's not easy." Sam added: "It's important to remember you've come from a whole different continent, you don't know anyone here, it's hard. It's real hard."

Danielle further comforted Jamie Lynn by reminding her of the challenges she's overcome in her life, downplaying their current situation in the jungle. Jamie Lynn responded: "But at least all that s*** I could go home to my babies every night, you know?

"That's it, that's all I need in life. It feels a little bit overwhelming. They're not even close. I've got to just do it. I don't know why I'm being such a baby."

But while Jamie Lynn became emotional, viewers were distracted by Sam's comments about his cats. One user wrote: "Sam is killing me. Jamie Lynn crying about her kids and you're gonna say, 'I understand, I've got two cats."
