Caitlyn Jenner’s Partner Sophia Hutchins Says It's 'Gut-Wrenching' Watching I'm A Celeb
Twenty-three-year-old Sophia, who lives in Malibu with Caitlyn, admitted that it's not been easy to watch the show while she's sat at home unable to speak to her.
Speaking to Lorraine Kelly on Friday, she said: "It hasn't been easy to watch at all when there is someone who is across the globe you kind of feel helpless to begin with.
"When you throw in these challenges and she is crying, it has been gut-wrenching to watch. The producers take away everyone's phones so we don't have any way to contact her. It's tough."
She went on to say that seeing Caitlyn cry left her feeling 'ready to get on a plane', adding that it was out of character for the former Olympian and reality star.
Caitlyn has already faced a couple of the show's gross Bushtucker Trials, with the 70-year-old having to chow down on a cow's eye and hold a live bug in her mouth for a whole minute. Lovely.

Fair play, though, she didn't back down and managed to get a whopping 10 stars for the camp.
For Sophia, sat at home, it must be a strange experience, but as tough as it is for her, she has little choice but to watch, as she recently revealed she is looking after Caitlyn's Instagram account while she's in the jungle.
Sharing a selfie with Caitlyn's 9.5 million followers, Sophia wrote: "Hey guys it's @hutchins_sophia While @caitlynjenner is in the jungle for @imacelebrity we are all rooting her on here in the USA!! Go CAITLYN!!
"We all can't wait for you to get your phone back (and win this challenge)! xoxo."
Someone else who also seems to be watching at home is Kim Kardashian West who recently retweeted a video of Caitlyn from the official I'm A Celeb twitter account.

The clip showed Caitlyn giving an early morning motivational speech to the camp, shouting: "Let's go team, not just another day - another day to excel, another day to be great. Rise and shine..."
Retweeting the clip, Kim wrote: "I literally recorded this and set this as my alarm a few weeks ago!"
