There were tears at dinnertime on Monday night's edition of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The celebrities chatted in camp and conversation turned to people that had influenced them over the years.

Caitlyn Jenner told a story about a track coach she had at college. She said his name was LD Weldon and that he was a great guy who was about 65 years old when they first met but had since sadly passed away.

'It wasn’t just track stuff, it was knowledge, about life, and he was a really good person,' Caitlyn explained of her mentor, beginning to become emotional.

Welling up, she went on: 'He had so many athletes throughout his career but he said to me that I was truly the greatest athlete he’d ever coached and that meant a lot to me, a lot, a good man.'

Caitlyn continued to cry and was hugged by the other campmates.

Before becoming Caitlyn via sex reassignment surgery, Bruce Jenner was an Olympic gold medal–winning decathlete.
