I'm A Celebrity star Vernon Kay is believed to be sending 'secret signals' to his wife of 17 years Tess Daly by wearing a piece of jewellery she bought him.

The TV star, 46, has moved away from his wife and their two daughters Phoebe, 16, and Amber, 11, to appear in the latest series of the ITV reality show in north Wales.

While appearing on the programme, Vernon has been sporting an eye-catching Elvis Presley-inspired ring, which is a nod to his beloved wife Tess.

Vernon, who is a huge fan of the King of Rock and Roll, has previously spoken about the ring and told how it was a gift from Tess on their anniversary.     

In an interview in 2010, Vernon said: 'The most romantic thing Tess has done for me was for our anniversary.

He added: 'I had a really bad fake copy of it from Graceland, but she took it to a Hatton Garden jeweller and had a white gold version made with real diamonds.

'It's quality! I couldn't believe it when she had it made. It only ever comes out on themed nights, though.'
