Vernon, 46, is currently living at Gwrych Castle for this year’s I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, which means Tess, 51, hasn’t seen her hubby for over two weeks.

During yesterday’s Strictly, Tess mentioned being apart from Vernon live on air.

Tess’ co-star Claudia Winkleman, 48, had just interviewed Ranvir Singh and Giovanni Pernice after their impressive American Smooth.

Teasing what was coming up on the show, Claudia said former Royal Marine JJ Chalmers was going to be dancing a Scottish Highlands themed routine.

The funny presenter joked to Tess: “I am taking you there for our honeymoon.”

Tess replied: “Vernon’s away. I’m in”, unexpectedly bringing her famous other half into the conversation.

The presenter and model’s remark didn’t go unnoticed by viewers, and they went into meltdown on Twitter.

One wrote: “Tess reminding me she’s the one married to Vernon and not me.”

While another wrote: “Tess mentioning Vernon being away on Strictly but not mentioning I’m A Celeb cause she’s on the BBC.”

A third added: “‘Vernon’s away’ – I’m old enough to feel a genuine frisson of excitement that Tess has alluded to ITV *while on prime-time BBC1* #Strictly.”

“The British public simultaneously being jealous of Tess Daly because of Vernon and Strictly. She really do be winning”, penned another.

A fifth typed: “Tess letting us know Vernon is in the Castle”, with a laughing emoji.

Vernon has spoken about his wife on I’m a Celeb, and broke down in tears when he receive a present from his family.

Tess and Vernon share two daughters, Phoebe, 16, and Amber, 11.

Vernon was left wiping away his tears as he seemed to be struggling to spend time apart from his beloved family.

Tess and the girls had sent him a soft checkered blanket, knowing he likes to cosy up under it while watching television.

Strictly Come Dancing continues tonight at 7.15pm on BBC One.
