Caitlyn Jenner fans confused as Im A Celebrity Coming Home calls partner Sophia her close friend


CAITLYN Jenner fans were left confused last night as I’m A Celebrity Coming Home called her partner Sophia Hutchins her “close friend”.

Sophia, 23 who describes herself as Caitlyns partner in everything travelled from the pair’s home in Malibu to reunite with Caitlyn, 70, after she left the jungle.

Sophia has been fiercely protective of Caitlyn while she’s been in the jungle,previously launching a furious attack on GMB host Piers Morganfor asking “bulls**t questions” about their relationship.

She had told the host that they are just “partners”, and was horrified when Piers asked if there was any “hanky panky” between them.

But last night Ant McPartlin didn’t use the “partners” label the pair have adopted and instead called Sophia Caitlyn’s “close friend” – leaving fans confused.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: “Caitlyns ‘close friend Sophia’? Not what I thought their relationship was?”

Another added: “Pretty sure that Sophia is Caitlyn’s girlfriend not close friend?”

A third wrote: “Isn’t Sophia, Caitlyn’s girlfriend?”

Last week, Sophia finally paid a visit to the jungle after the Im A Celebrity star was left standing alone on the bridge.

Fans of the show were left heartbroken on Saturday evening when no one came to meet the 70-year-old when she was voted out of the show after weeks of her famous family feigning little interest in her progress.

But Sophia was en route to Australia and made it for the final.

Sharing a picture of them on set, she wrote: So proud of you @caitlynjenner glad I got to visit the jungle! @imacelebrity.

It later transpired that James Haskell had headed to camp to greet Caitlyn after realising no one else would be there for her car ride home.

The 34-year-old rugby player told his fans: “Such an amazing campmate.

I am glad I could repay her for all her kindness and support when I was in the jungle.

“It was really important to me she had someone there. Its crazy when you come out!”

Stars of the series are generally met by their nearest and dearest for an emotional reunion, but none of Caitlyns relatives or friends opted to make the trip to Australia.

It has since emerged that daughter Kendall and Kylie jetted off on holiday instead of supporting their parent.

Kylie has been posting pics from her ski trip, while Kendall has been snapped frolicking around on a yacht.

Throughout the show Caitlyn was snubbed by her daughters when tearful campmates got letters from their children and partners – but Caitlyn had to settle for hearing about her dogs.

Viewers were previously left fuming whenCaitlyn was seemingly snubbed by her famous family when she received a care package from her DOGS.

The former Olympian’s step-daughterKim Kardashian was the first family member to break her silence on the show on Twitter.

Then Kendall finally broke her silence on dad Caitlyn’s I’m A Celebrity journey following backlash from fans but viewers still felt like it was enough support.
