I’M A Celebrity’s star Jessica Plummer will be crowned Best Actress at Monday night’s Inside Soap Awards for her harrowing performance as tragic domestic abuse victim Chantelle Atkins.
It comes as the viewers favourite was last night backed to win the show by her two biggest fans – her mum and four-year-old daughter Noa.

After beating off fierce competition from Corrie star Shelley King, 65, Emmerdale actress Natalie J Robb, 45, and Hollyoaks hottie Jennifer Metcalfe, 37.
Jess said: “This is probably one of the biggest achievements of my career.
“It was an honour to even be nominated, I’m completely blown away.
“This year has been a complete whirlwind. Winning this award is the cherry on the cake for my EastEnders journey.”
She was told about her award just before she went into the castle in I’m A Celebrity.
Meanwhile, her mum Pippa Morris, 55, from Somerset, said: “Jess is doing absolutely brilliantly.
“I’m dead chuffed with how she’s getting on. She is doing really well.
“Because of lockdown I haven’t been able to see Jess and Noa as much as I would like but we are all backing her to win.
“It’s been hard on Jess because Noa is her world and she hasn’t seen her for three weeks now.”
Jess was seen in tears after she received a mug featuring a picture of her daughter during I’m A Celebrity.
She also told how she looks at the moon after telling her daughter to do the same “to know that I’m thinking of her”.
