'I'm A Celebrity': Charlie Brooks Gets Letter From Her Daughter Days After 'Cruel' Task

'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' star Charlie Brooks has received a letter from her daughter only days after narrowly missing out on a reunion with her.

Viewers on Tuesday night saw the 'EastEnders' actress left heartbroken after she lost a challenge that would have allowed her to see seven-year-old Kiki.

The stunt sparked outrage on Twitter and TV forums from fans who called it "cruel".

Speaking in the Bush Telegraph after the task, Charlie made a tearful apology to her daughter.

The actress said: “I swear to God, it felt like someone had taken a boot and kicked me in the guts.

“I didn’t even think having a member of family behind the door would have been an option.

“This is heartbreaking. Yellow’s my favourite colour, she would have been thinking ’mummy would pick yellow’ (the yellow door)."

ITV have defended the stunt saying they got permission from Kiki's gran for the little girl to appear on the show. A spokesperson told the Daily Mail Kiki visited the set every day so the experience wasn't out of the ordinary.

On Wednesday night's show Charlie was given the letter from her daughter after Ashley Roberts successfully guided a hoop along a buzz wire.

Writing in her letter, Charlie's daughter told her she was "the best mummy in the world", adding: "Don't worry about us, you are in it now you may as well try and win it for all of us. I can't wait to see you".
