Kim Kardashian West Tweets About Caitlyn Jenner's Stint On I'm A Celeb
Kim Kardashian West has tweeted about Caitlyn Jenner's jungle stint on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! after the 70-year-old gave a motivational speech which included a snippet of 'Rise and Shine'.
Kardashian West, 39, retweeted a video of Jenner's wake-up call from the official I'm a Celeb Twitter account, writing: "I literally recorded this and set this as my alarm a few weeks ago!"

Caitlyn's stirring speech on the show was seemingly referring back to the viral hit from her youngest daughter Kylie. Back in October during a Kylie Cosmetics HQ office tour, the 22-year-old woke daughter Stormi up with a rendition of 'Rise and Shine'. Fans went wild for the clip and now it seems Caitlyn is hoping for the same success in the Australian jungle.
Adding a twist to her daughter's version, Caitlyn shouted to her fellow campmates: "Let's go team, not just another day - another day to excel, another day to be great," then it came: "Rise and shine..."
Some people have been merging the two clips together, but others have just embraced the fact that a member of the family has finally spoken out about Caitlyn's involvement in the successful UK reality TV show.
One wrote: "We have all been waiting for a Kardashian tweet about #ImACelebrity2019" another added: "Finally you have tweeted about #ImACelebrity2019 we all have been waiting."

Some fans were left confused as to how Kim could have set this as her alarm 'weeks ago' when I'm a Celeb only kicked off last Sunday (17 November).
Thankfully, one saint came to the rescue to explain, saying: "For all you saying, 'how could she have recorded this a few weeks ago'. She isn't talking about Caitlyn on the show... Kylie did the rise and shine thing that went viral."
They added: "Caitlyn copying it on the show was a little nod to her daughter."
Cute if true, but we must remember, saying 'rise and shine' is a popular phrase that one is completely within their rights to say when someone is snoozing. Although Rak-Su singer Myles Stephenson would probably disagree as he looked horrified with Caitlyn's outburst.
Former Olympian Caitlyn, who has spoken openly about being a transgender woman and discussed her 2015 transition on the show, is reportedly the highest paid celeb of the lot, scooping a mega fee of £500,000 ($640k).
Before heading in to the jungle, the 70-year-old said: "I did this show 16 years ago, in 2003 - the US version. I did fairly well, I made it all the way to the finals. But that was Bruce, today Caitlyn's here. I kind of wonder how she is going to do."
She added: "You know I still love a good trophy, I still love a good title. I have the unique distinction of being Olympic Decathlon Champion, Glamour's Woman of the Year - could I put on top of that the queen of the jungle? Hmm, we'll see."
