Last night’s show – which featured unseen footage from across the week – saw Vernon and his fellow celebs discussed their happiest moments.
Vernon said: “I think it was when I proposed to Tess. On Christmas Day it was, it was the last present under the tree.
“While she was so consumed by the ring, I was on one knee. She was like that [pulls shocked face]. It was awesome.”
Vernon added in the Telegraph: “When she opened it up, her face just lit up.”

The couple married in Bolton, Lancashire in September 2003 and have two daughters, Phoebe, 16, and Amber, 11.
And the romantic star also delighted his camp mates and viewers when he previously revealed all about how he surprised Tess with a marriage vow renewal a few years ago.
Vernon secretly arranged everything about the event as well as getting Tess four potential wedding dresses for her to wear.

He said: “I booked a weekend in our favourite hotel in the South of France and I spoke to her (Tess’) stylist at the time and I said I needed four dresses.”
He added: “She didn’t know anything. I gave her a card and it said congratulations on your second wedding day and I said we’re going to renew our vows.
“She said ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’ and I said ‘you say that…pick one’.”
Vernon continued: “We went to reception and her Mum, my parents, the kids and my brother were waiting and she was like ‘oh my god’ – we had such a lovely day.”
