After widespread criticism from fans, the Kardashian-Jenner clan are slowly but surely breaking their social media silences over their dad Caitlyn Jenner’s stint in the jungle.

Caitlyn, who is dad to daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner and step-father to Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian, has been one of the biggest names to head to the Australian outback for this series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! but initial responses from her LA based family were certainly thin on the ground.

But now Kendall Jenner has spoken out in a show of support, taking to her social media to share a still from last night’s episode and a rallying cry of encouragement.

"Always rooting for you, strongest person in the world," she wrote alongside a GIF of Caitlyn learning the dance routine to Girl’s Aloud The Promise alongside Jacqueline Joss, Adele Roberts and GA bandmate/teacher Nadine Coyle.

I'm A Celebrity 2014: The WORST Bushtucker Trials EVER! - slider

Dean Gaffney (2006)1 of 8

Ex-EastEnder Dean Gaffney showed off his impressive ability to yelp like an injured animal in his 2006 trial. To be fair to the man, he did have cockroaches poured on his head, put his hands in a box of biting ants and retrieve a star from a pool of baby crocodiles.

"I think I've got to eat some kind of weird stuff," commented Gino when he was told he was going to do a Bushtucker Bonanza. Yep, we guess that a fermented egg, a rhino beetle, cockroach, wittchedy grub, mealworms, beach worms and crocodile tongue might be considered 'weird'.

Jennie Bond (2004)3 of 8

Alone, wet, cold and covered with rats. Not a situation we'd like to get in any time soon, but former Royal correspondent Jennie Bond managed to last a whole 10 minutes locked in a water and rat filled coffin by humming an upbeat tune. We salute you, Ms. Bond.

Joey Essex (2013)4 of 8

Locked in a cold, dark, slimy tomb, we'd be freaking out if we were Joey in his 2013 task. But the TOWIE star powered through and managed to find all twelve hidden stars without uttering a single scream, only stopping to moan 'This is definitely, 100% not reem,' and to comment that the rodents were biting his 'middle parts'.

Mark Wright and Freddie Starr (2011)5 of 8

TOWIE's Mark and hamster-eating comedian Freddie were an oddly matched pair for the 'Greasy Spoon Café' culinary battle, but the resulting Bushtucker trial has to be one of our faves. The couple was challenged to dine on a spoiled egg, blended cockroaches, mealworms and mouse tails, turkey testicles, a camel's toe and a pigs anus.

Martina Navratilova (2008)6 of 8

Tennis pro Martina impressed us all when she shared a plastic bubble helmet with a variety of jungle critters, including grasshoppers, cockroaches, stick insects, spiders and snakes. While we shuddered and hid behind our hands, Martina took it like a champ.

Matt Willis (2006)7 of 8

Poor Matt Willis proved he's no wimp when he munched his way to victory in his Bushtucker Bonanza challenge of 2006. The McBusted star dined out on live mealworms, witchetty grubs, a kangaroo anus and a crocodile penis. Mr Willis managed the whole lot without a single retch, commenting after 'I've got kangaroo anus in my teeth. It's a really good look.'

Kim Woodburn (2009)8 of 8

Kim was submerged in a tank under water, while thousands of cockroaches and other critters were poured on her. As much as we did feel for clean freak Kim, her screeches of "Something's nipping my bosoms" and "It's bitten my bum!" made this trial a timeless classic.

"Just cuz I’m not posting doesn’t mean I’m not supporting. I love my dad!

"Everyone chill".

Fair play, Kendall. Fair play.

Kendall is the third of Caitlyn’s family members to have posted their support, after Kim Kardashian retweeted a clip of Caitlyn waking up the rest up the camp with an upbeat call to action.

Caitlyn can be seen shouting, "Let's go team. It's not just another day, it's another day to excel, another day to be great. Rise and Shine."

And Kim re-shared the clip with the accompanying message, "I literally recorded this and set this as my alarm a few weeks ago!"

While Kylie has been busy "liking" various jungle-related posts, Caitlyn’s partner Sophia Hutchin’s appeared on Good Morning Britain via video link to say, "I think the media has read into that a little too much.

"No matter what Caitlyn does, her kids love her to death, her kids support whatever she’s doing. There’s support, there’s nothing but love coming from the kids to Caitlyn."
