John invited Emily, 29 to be a guest on his new album, A Fabulous Christmas, which will feature Sleigh Ride, Santa Claus is Coming to Town and It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

They'll be singing I Saw Mummy Kissing Santa Claus together after spending time in the studio separately to record the single.

Speaking on This Morning, 52-year-old John said: "We've changed it to Emily/John kissing Santa Claus.

"It's the first time Santa will be kissed by a man."

John took Emily under his wing in the jungle and the pair soared straight through to the final.

I'm A Celeb was ultimately won by football manager Harry Redknapp.

Talking about his relationship with Emily, John added: "Our friendship in the jungle just blossomed.

"I knew when I first saw her I was gong to hit it off with her.

"I got a vibe from her. We all got along, granted we had our moments with each other, but with Emily we text and we talk."

After overhearing Emily sing while she was washing in the jungle, John said he knew he wanted to work with her on the outside.

"We weren't in the studio together when we recorded the song," he said.

"She was calling me saying she was worried about how it would sound.

" I said to her 'I heard you singing in the plunge pool, I know you can'.

"I was standing there listening to her sing thinking, that would sound good on an album."

  • A Fabulous Christmas is released on December 6.
