You may or may not have heard, but Caitlyn Jenner has recently, and quite bizarrely, joined a load of British celebrities on the U.K. version of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. Caitlyn has had a rollercoaster journey in the jungle so far, but has certainly done us proud by competing heroicly in the horrific, insect-ridden tasks that come as part of the show.
The rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan have remained uncharacteristically silent about Caitlyn's presence in the jungle, but her partner, twenty-three-year-old Sophia Hutchins, has recently opened up about Caitlyn's time in the jungle.
Piers Morgan interviewed Hutchins and asked the question everyone wants to know. Continue scrolling to find out what went down.
We all know about the famous Caitlyn Jenner transformation.
via: GettyRemember? When the gold-medal-winning Olympian and partner to Kris Jenner, announced the start of her transition into a woman back in 2015?
It was a huge part of the bizarre public spectacle that is the Keeping up with the Kardashian's.
via: GettyShe came into Kris' life after the death of her first partner, Robert Kardashian. She had 2 children with Kris (Kendall, and Kylie) and was hastily blended as a significant role model for all of the Kardashians.
So, understandably, the world was shocked when she transitioned into Caitlyn.And, in true Kardashian-Jenner fashion, she came out on the cover of Vanity Fair. People marveled at the impressive transformation. She underwent her final operation - the irreversible gender-reassignment surgery - in 2017, officially marking the birth of Caitlyn.
And she couldn't be happier.
via: InstagramIn her debut Vanity Fair interview as Caitlyn, she explained how liberating it felt to finally be open as a woman: "I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul. Up to this point, I would wear, you know, Bruce would wear sweatshirts with hoods on them so paparazzi can’t get pictures and all that kind of crap."
Caitlyn insists that she is a nicer person than ever before.
via: InstagramWhen asked about sending a full airplane out just to pick up her Mom, Caitlyn explained: "I know. What I told her: “Isn’t Caitlyn a much better friend?" Bruce, he would never send a plane. No, no, no, what a jerk the guy was, O.K., Caitlyn is like, “Send the plane. Mom, we’re sending a plane, we’re going to go pick you up and bring you down here."... It seems like she has a lot more friends than he ever had."
Yet, despite Caitlyn being happier and more popular than ever...
via: InstagramThe shocking transition understandably took its toll on her daughters, Kendall and Kylie. "My dad says it herself sometimes, it's kind of like mourning the loss of someone, because it is," Kendall said in a candid interview about Caitlyn's transition. "My dad is my dad, but he’s not there physically anymore. But she lets me call her dad -- that's the last little piece of dad I've got."
Though Kendall insists that she'd known about Caitlyn's gender identity for years.
via: Instagram"It's an adjustment. It's something you have to get used to. But I've known since I was a kid," Kendall revealed in the same interview. "He never confirmed it to me, but I’ve known for a very long time. It's the same person."
It's been a few years since the transition now...
via: Getty ImagesEven though they have been through some pretty rough patches, the family seems to have worked things out. Well, most of them... But that's a whole other story. And of course, there's her much-speculated "partnership" with Sophia Hutchins, whom she shares a lavish Malibu home with - keep scrolling to see what Sophia has to say about the rumors.
But Caitlyn is through with caring, she is living her best life.
via: YoutubeThe former Olympian has ventured out into the industry on her own. Though she has the support of her family, she is now looking into making up for lost time for Caitlyn.
Her latest project involves going into the jungle for 3 weeks.
via: YouTubeYes, you read that right. Caitlyn Jenner is hanging up the glitz and the glamour to go and get down and dirty with a bunch of British B-List celebs.
This isn't the first time she's been in the jungle...
via: YouTubeBack in 2003, she went into the jungle, ready to tackle whatever creepy crawlies may be lurking around amongst the bushes. And now she is ready to give it a go again!
However, things haven't really got off to the best start...
via: YouTubeWithin the first twenty-four hours, there have already been tears. While everyone was fast asleep, Caitlyn decided to sneak away into the Bush Telegraph to have a little cry.
She claimed she had a "tough night."
via: YouTubeShe wondered if she was spending her time wisely saying: "I’m seventy years old now and is being in here the right way to use my time. Should I be home with my kids, playing with the grandchildren? I’ve never quit at anything I’ve ever done and I’m thinking maybe it’s time I learned how to do that!" When she woke up in the morning, rugby player James Haskell lightheartedly asked Caitlyn: "Did you wake up this morning and think "OMG, it’s real, I’m actually in the jungle with all these idiots?"'
Her reply wasn't so lighthearted.
via: ITV"No actually, I woke up in the middle of the night. I had a tough night." Later on, Andrew Maxwell commented that Caitlyn had "been quiet all morning."
But in true Caitlyn fashion, she put on her hat and geared up for the day.
via: ITVNothing was going to keep her down for long. She hyped herself up with: "The day has started, I have the hat on, let's get it on!" That's the spirit!
But there's one thing that has got fans rather confused...And it's the fact that the Kardashian/Jenners have so far stayed so quiet. Now, this family isn't usually the type to stay quiet on their family affairs, so many fans have been speculating as to what could be going on behind closed doors.
But now, someone has spoken out.
via: GettyAnd it isn't a Kardashian or a Jenner... But it is someone incredibly close to Caitlyn. In fact, so close that the pair have been plagued with relationship rumors for over 4 years.
Caitlyn's "partner," Sophia Hutchins, has opened up about what it's like having Caitlyn in the jungle.
via: GettyTwenty-three-year-old Hutchins, who lives in Malibu with Caitlyn, spoke to the British breakfast show host, Lorraine Kelly, about what it has been like to watch her partner in the jungle.
She admitted that it's been "gut-wrenching."
via: Getty"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." She told Lorraine Kelly on Friday. But she also revealed some pretty shocking things about the pair's relationship status...
Sophia has had no contact with Caitlyn..."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."
And she revealed that it's extremely out of character for the olympian to cry.
via: GettyShe then admitted that watching her cry left her feeling "ready to get on a plane."
But most importantly, Sophia finally opened up about the pair's relationship status...
via: Getty ImagesThe pair live together and clearly share a tight-knit bond - leading many to question whether or not they are in a romantic relationship.
Sophia has finally spoken out...
via: Getty ImagesDuring an appearance on Good Morning Britain, host, Piers Morgan, launched right in, by asking how she would categorize their relationship.
But Sophia wasn't happy with Piers Morgan's line of questioning...
via: Getty Images"Is that the opening question?" she replied. "I think I’ve described it pretty well. At the end of the day, Caitlyn and I are family." "We’re great together in business and we have a great partnership, on the personal side as family, and on the business side, me managing her career and us supporting each other in whatever business ventures we’re involved in together."
The businesswoman insisted they were "family."
via: Getty ImagesHowever, after thinking about the interview, Sophia decided Piers' comments were inappropriate...
Sophia spoke out on Instagram.In the clip Sophia lashes out at Morgan, saying: "Good Morning Britain, having Piers Morgan is your biggest mistake. What a joke of a journalist he is."
You either hate him or you hate him...
via: InstagramPiers Morgan is a notoriously "hated" presenter, but sadly it's part of his charm. Sophia continued in her Insta story attack by saying: "What a pathetic line of questioning he had for me this morning. Totally not cool. I went on to support Caitlyn on I'm A Celebrity not deal with stupid b******t questions."
Don't expect to see Sophia Hutchins on GMB again.
via: InstagramSophia ended her rant by promising that she and Caitlyn would never appear on the show again. Her exact words were, "Neither of us will ever do your show ever again. You have shown your true colors yet again. So disappointing." Continue scrolling to read all about Caitlyn's latest heroic act from the jungle...
