I’m A Celebrity contestants Rebekah Vardy and Dennis Wise have been caught sending secret messages to their family on the show.
Eagle-eyed viewers noticed Rebekah, who’s married to Leicester City and England striker Jamie Vardy along with ex-Chelsea midfielder, Dennis Wise, were secretly communicating with their loved ones whenever they appeared on camera.
Despite the strict ‘no communication with the outside world’ rule the two celebrity contestants found a way to speak to their families.
Viewers spotted charcoal writing on the hat of 35-year-old Rebekah – a heart and the letter ‘U’, which obviously stands for ‘I love you’ and is seemingly a message to her husband.
Meanwhile 50-year-old Wise, was thought to be using clever hand gestures to send his love to friends and family – the former Chelsea enforcer places his right hand over his heart whenever I’m A Celebrity hosts Ant & Dec mention his name.
He keeps it there while the Geordie duo are talking to him and occasionally taps his chest with his fingers.

An attentive viewer took to Twitter to say:
Dennis always places his hand on his heart when Ant & Dec release who’s doing the Bushtucker trial
Another viewer backed the theory up adding:
Dennis is so cute always touches his chest when they’re live, probs saying love you to his fam #cute #ImACeleb
You may have noticed Ant & Dec picking on Dennis mercilessly, a particular target due to his small stature, which is a bit rich because Dec isn’t exactly Mr Tall himself.
However, viewers have come up with a reason why the iconic duo keep teasing him, it all stems from their loyalty to their beloved Newcastle United – both are die-hard Magpies and Wise was at one point appointed director of football for the club, an appointment which was not well received by fans.
It seems the latest series of I’m A Celebrity is the perfect opportunity for the duo to get their own back on behalf Newcastle United’s loyal fan base:
One person on Twitter wrote:
There's definitely some underlying Newcastle United ill feeling towards Dennis from Ant and Dec like #ImACelebrity2017
While another user posted:
Both Ant and Dec are Newcastle United fans and as a rule, NUFC fans don't like Dennis from the time he was Executive Director there, so think Dec is being a wee bit cheeky?
It's never nice to make fun of someone and their 'shortcomings' (no pun intended - honestly), but I guess when Ant & Dec are doing it, it's not consider bullying.
Instead it's 'bantertainment' (yes I've just made up a new word).
You catch the latest episode of I'm A Celebrity tonight on ITV at 9PM.
