They then looked at the book that the National Autistic Society made for Anne, filled with messages for her. This was presented to her for the first time by Rita Simons while she was still in Australia, shown at the Come Out Show on Wednesday evening.

The letter from Joseph was printed on the front of the book.

Concerning appearing at the show with autism, Anne told Phillip Schofield and Rochelle Humes: "My feeling was that I did not want to go in and say" Listen people I have this frightening autism "- but when people asked me to talk about it I was happy to talk about it. & # 39;

Anne joked that all her belongings still smelled of smoke, even though she cleaned everything thoroughly. She also noticed that her jet lag is not bad.

I'm fine, I went back around noon yesterday and slept a lot tonight, so I feel a lot better, "she explained.

Anne lives in Manchester and leaves her home in October to photograph The Chase in London, after which she flew to Australia for a month. She then appears in The Theater Royal Windsor's production of Dick Whittington, meaning she will not see her until January.

& # 39; We did The Chase until the day before I flew away [to Australia], & # 39; she said. & # 39; It is intense right now, because Bradley [Walsh, The Chase’s host] Doctor Who did we actually had to film [The Chase] whenever we can, what was the back of the year. & # 39;

Anne – who returns to her regular The Chase scheme next spring – told how she talked to her fellow stars Mark Labbett and Paul Sinha about the decision to continue with I & # 39; m A Celeb.

"I discussed it with Mark and I originally said that I would never do the jungle, not for all the money in the world," she admitted. & # 39;[The producers] took me for lunch and they were just absolutely delicious, and they said "we'll make sure it's all right". And I thought, you know what, I can imagine that I'm doing it.

"Mark said I really had to do this, and I also told Paul. Shaun Walsh and Jenny Ryan then picked it out. & # 39;

From her first days in the jungle she said: & # 39; It was a bit hilarious, but at the same time it was disturbing. And then we walk into the camp, just walking and walking, just going up and down and my mind went up and down with us.

& # 39; I went from "I really want to win this" to "I hope I'm the first one I want to go now". It took me some time. & # 39;

Anne indeed broke their first night in the camp and became upset, but stuck out until the last week and ended on the seventh place of the 11 participants.

From her camp mates she said: & # 39; People were by far the best things, they were just so protective and reassuring. I do not expect to make friends soon – they are all fantastic people.

"Rita is young enough to be my daughter, but she was like my mother. And every time you place Nick [Knowles] in a group of people he sees his role as caring and looking out for them. Malique [Thompson-Dwyer] and James [McVey] became surrogate sons for him. & # 39;

Anne added that the effects of the climates in the jungle – and the bloody tasks she had to endure – returned to the United Kingdom with her.

& # 39; One of the first things they dropped on me was gunge. I still have not washed the green slurry out of my bra! & # 39; She admitted.

Anne, who was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome in 2007, frankly discussed her autism before entering the jungle and admitted that producers were anxious & # 39; were about her coping mechanisms in the show.

Anne, who is known as The Governess on quiz program The Chase, was diagnosed with Autism when she watched a TV show and realized that she had all the symptoms.

She explained that Asperger makes her disorganized, which makes her a messy & # 39; house has given that she will not let anyone visit, while she admits that she & # 39; faceblind & # 39; is, which means that it can cause her to "confuse" some of the campmates & # 39; . & # 39;

He wrote: & # 39; For Anne, my name is Joseph Hughes and I am 11. I live in Preston Lancashire and I go to a specialized school. I was diagnosed with autism when I was 5. I'd love to see you at The Chase …

& # 39; And now I have followed you in the jungle. I could not go in there because there are too many bugs. You are very smart…

Sometimes people are mean to me because I'm autistic, but when you look at me, I see that other people also have autism and maybe I can get a cool job like you when I'm older. So you like Thunderbirds? I love them…

& # 39; My favorite is Thunderbird 2. I made a photo for you, I hope you like it. Good luck in the jungle, I hope you like it. Joseph's love. & # 39;

Yay! Kate Jarvis filmed her son and told him that his letter had gone viral and that the team had contacted Thunderbirds to send Joseph a gift

Joseph's mother Kate filmed the reaction of her son when she told him that his letter had gone viral.

She also told the youngster that the team had been in contact with Thunderbirds and offered to send Joseph a gift. Joseph, who sat on the bench in his uniform before school, said that he was really excited & # 39; used to be.

When she spoke to Loose Women in September, Anne revealed that she did not leave anyone in her house or would like to go on vacation, because she prefers that things are quiet.

Anne said: & # 39; People always say to me & # 39; & # 39; Where do you store your autism? & # 39; & # 39; And I always say: & # 39; It is it is behind my front door and I do not enter. & # 39; & # 39; & # 39;

She continued: "I just need everything to become quiet, for people to stop bothering me and not to think about when I get caught. I love having my own kitchen so that I can cook and a washing machine so that I can wash. The things you can not get in a hotel. & # 39;

Anne told earlier that the situation led to her misinterpreting signals of potential love interests, but also believed that it helped her to learn about quiz.

She also revealed how the syndrome cost her a job in proofreading, because her inability to multitask led to her underachievement.

The job loss left her with advantages and led to two bailiffs arriving within ten minutes of each other on New Year's Day 2008.

Anne later applied for The Chase with the help of a social worker. She has appeared on the show, which is presented by Bradley Walsh, since 2010.
