Simon Gregson breaks down in tears as he's reunited with his family after I'm A Celebrity

SIMON Gregson has been seen breaking down in tears as he was reunited with his children for the first time after his I'm A Celebrity exit.

The Coronation Street star was filmed surprising two of his sons – Alfie, 14, and Harry, 12 – as he walked into the living room of their family home.

Simon, 47, was voted runner-up in Sunday night's final after being pipped to the post by the new King of the Castle, Emmerdale star Danny Miller.

The soap actor spent most of Monday keeping busy with TV interviews about his time in Gwrych Castle before he was able to go home to his family.

Now, the star has shown the intimate moment his sons saw him for the first time since his exit from the competition, seeing him get emotional.

In the clip posted to Instagram, Simon can be seen quietly walking into the house before his wife Emma Gleave announces to their sons: "Here he is!"

Harry and Alfie can be seen running round the corner to jump into their father's arms, holding him in a long embrace as Simon told them he had "missed them".

"Oh my god boys, I have missed you so much," he could be heard saying as he held them both tightly and appeared to be overwhelmed with emotion.

Simon captioned the sweet video – in which youngest son Henry, six, was missing: "I'M HOME! Wow… this was emotional."

Fans immediately flooded the comments to share how they too were emotional over the reunion, including Simon's fellow campmate, DJ Snoochie Shy.

Danny Miller crowned winner of I'm A Celeb after beating Simon Gregson

It comes after Simon was voted out as runner up in this year's I'm A Celebrity.. Get Me Out Of Here competition, coming second behind Danny Miller.

The soap actor was given an opportunity to say a few words after the result was announced, thanking fans for voting for him and gushing over the experience.

But viewers at home noted how Simon was the only star not to have a ticker-tape departure this series, as he was interviewed alongside Danny, 30, and not solo.

He was forced to stay put in the studio while hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly chatted to his co-star instead of having his iconic 'walking out' scene.

Frankie Bridge, who came third in the competition, had her one-on-one interview about her time in the castle, as well as her walk-out montage, moments before.

However, the same could not be said for Simon – who was forced to stand aside as champion Danny walked out of Gwrych Castle in all his glory.

While he was given a few moments to speak and was given cheers from the studio, the focus was quickly shifted to Danny being crowned the winner.

Fans flooded Twitter to complain that the soap star had been "snubbed" as he was given no time to look back over his best-bits from the show.

Other furious fans headed to social media to brand I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here as "a fix" after Danny took home the crown.

Danny had been one the bookies' favourite to win I'm A Celeb for most of the season, but that didn't stop the cynics from labelling the result as "fixed" pointing to the fact the three finalists were all ITV stars as proof.

"Another reality tv fix – quits Emmerdale, goes on I’m A Celeb, wins. I never waste time voting, the winner is decided before the programme starts like other people have said all along it’s fixed," wrote one angry fan on Twitter.

Another added: "Absolute fix. Simon should have won."
