Back in 2015, the world was shocked when Olympian and KUWTK star, Caitlyn Jenner, announced that she would be transitioning from male to female. Caitlyn had been silently battling with her gender identity for years and was visibly delighted when she officially came out as a woman in 2017. Since then, Caitlyn has become a global ambassador for trans people and has been living her best life as an open and proud trans woman. Recently, she joined a load of British celebrities on the latest version of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here but there was a heartbreaking twist...

We all know about the famous Caitlyn Jenner transformation.

Remember? When the gold-medal-winning Olympian and partner to Kris Jenner,  announced the start of her transition into a woman back in 2015?

It was a huge part of the bizarre public spectacle that is the Keeping up with the Kardashian's.

She came into Kris’ life after the death of her first partner, Robert Kardashian. She had 2 children with Kris (Kendall, and Kylie) and was hastily blended as a significant family figure with all the Kardashians.

So, understandably, the world was shocked when she transitioned into Caitlyn.

And, in true Kardashian-Jenner fashion, she came out on the cover of Vanity Fair. People marveled at the impressive transformation. She underwent her final operation – the irreversible gender-reassignment surgery – in 2017, officially marking the birth of Caitlyn.

And she couldn't be happier.

In her debut Vanity Fair interview as Caitlyn, she explained how liberating it felt to finally be open as a woman: “I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul. Up to this point, I would wear, you know, Bruce would wear sweatshirts with hoods on them so paparazzi can’t get pictures and all that kind of crap.”

Caitlyn insists that she is a nicer person than ever before.

When asked about sending a full airplane out just to pick up her Mom, Caitlyn explained: “I know. What I told her: “Isn’t Caitlyn a much better friend?” Bruce, he would never send a plane. No, no, no, what a jerk the guy was, O.K., Caitlyn is like, “Send the plane. Mom, we’re sending a plane, we’re going to go pick you up and bring you down here.”… It seems like she has a lot more friends than he ever had.”

Yet, despite Caitlyn being happier and more popular than ever...

The shocking transition understandably took its toll on her daughters, Kendall and Kylie. For the 2 girls, the birth of Caitlyn meant the loss of their dad as they knew him. “My dad says it herself sometimes, it’s kind of like mourning the loss of someone, because it is,” Kendall said in a candid interview about Caitlyn’s transition. “My dad is my dad, but he’s not there physically anymore. But she lets me call her dad — that’s the last little piece of dad I’ve got.”

Though Kendall insists that she'd known about her dad's gender identity for years.

“It’s an adjustment. It’s something you have to get used to. But I’ve known since I was a kid,” Kendall revealed in the same interview. “He never confirmed it to me, but I’ve known for a very long time. It’s the same person.”

It's been a few years since the transition now...

Even though they have been through some pretty rough patches, the family seems to have worked things out. Well, most of them… But that’s a whole other story.

But Caitlyn is through with caring, she is living her best life.

The former Olympian has ventured out into the industry on her own. Though she has the support of her family, she is now looking into making up for lost time for Caitlyn.

Her latest project involved going into the jungle for 3 weeks.

Caitlyn Jenner hung up the glitz and the glamour to go and get down and dirty with a bunch of British B-List celebs.

This wasn't the first time she's been in the jungle...

Back in 2003, she went into the jungle, ready to tackle whatever creepy crawlie may be lurking around amongst the bushes. And now she is ready to give it a go again!

However, things didn't get off to the best start...

Within the first twenty-four hours, there were already tears. While everyone was fast asleep, Caitlyn decided to sneak away into the Bush Telegraph to have a little cry.

She claimed she had a "tough night."

She wondered if she was spending her time wisely saying: “I’m seventy years old now and is being in here the right way to use my time. Should I be home with my kids, playing with the grandchildren? I’ve never quit at anything I’ve ever done and I’m thinking maybe it’s time I learned how to do that!” When she woke up in the morning, rugby player James Haskell lightheartedly asked Caitlyn: “Did you wake up this morning and think “OMG, it’s real, I’m actually in the jungle with all these idiots?”‘

Her reply wasn't so lighthearted.

“No actually, I woke up in the middle of the night. I had a tough night.” Later on, Andrew Maxwell commented that Caitlyn had “been quiet all morning.”

But in true Caitlyn fashion, she put on her hat and geared up for the day.

Nothing was going to keep her down for long. She hyped herself up with: “The day has started, I have the hat on, let’s get it on!” That’s the spirit!

She decided to have a shower, along with fellow campmate and hunk, James Haskell.

Not together. Get your mind’s out of the gutter! James went first, as the rest of the camp poured freezing water down the pipe to act as a shower.

After that, Caitlyn followed.

Stripping down into a black bikini, the reality TV star had no problems in revealing her “new” body. She got straight under the blast of freezing water and gave us yet another iconic scene the jungle shower is known for.

You've got to give her props!

Even when she had freezing cold water poured on her, she called it “refreshing.” I highly doubt it was refreshing but I commend her positive mindset.

People all across the globe praised Caitlyn for her bravery.

Being a seventy-year-old transgender woman under a constant spotlight, you would think she would be more reluctant or insecure about what people may say, but no, not Caitlyn Jenner!

Caitlyn shown us the true definition of bravery.

And she inspired all of us.

Kim eventually broke her silence.

You’d expect that the Kardashian/Jenner clan would’ve been all over Caitlyn’s entrance into I’m A Celebrity, but only after six days did Kim finally break her silence.

She tweeted about her wake up call.

Caitlyn became a legend in the jungle for her infamous wake-up call. The 70-year-old said: Pretty motivational huh!

And then Kim said:

She said, retweeting an I’m A Celebrity video. Of course, Rise and Shine is what Kylie Jenner sings to wake up Stormi every morning.

Fans were wondering why the Kardashians had stayed so quiet.

Many fans were curious as to of why the Kardashian’s and Jenner’s had stayed so quiet following Caitlyn’s introduction to the jungle. However now that’s been put to rest after Kim posted to her 60 million+ following on Twitter alone.

And Caitlyn also spoke about Kim.

Speaking in Australia, Caitlyn lifted the lid on Kim Kardashian’s work ethic too. She said: 

However Caitlyn's time in the jungle came to an end.

Caitlyn did well in the jungle, but the crown was not to be hers, and she became the seventh contestant to be voted off the show.

However fans were left devastated.

Not only was the fan favorite kicked off the show prematurely, but heartbreakingly nobody was there to meet her on the bridge.

The meeting on the bridge is legendary.

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here has been around for almost two decades, and whenever somebody gets kicked out of the jungle they take the long walk across the legendary bridge which leads in and out of the camp. When leaving, a family member, wife/husband, or close friend will normally run across the bridge to greet the failed contestant.

But nobody was there for Caitlyn.

And fans were left in tears, many of them taking to social media to voice their upset. One person wrote: Another shared:

Another explained.

They’ve got a point to be fair. We hope Caitlyn is doing well and enjoys the rest of her time out in Australia.

If you've been in quarantine with your family then you may be ready to go back to work.

I don’t have a job but I will apply for something.

Your summer body goals are nonexistent now.

If you’re going to be stuck at home, may as well try to live your best life.

We get it now, dogs. We get it.

This is also why the grocery stores are low in snacks.

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Maybe having a new family will help us get through quarantine with our family.

Anything to stay sane at this time.

I’ve done this and can say with confidence that it’s helpful.

Parents are incredibly understanding of nature right now.

Being in quarantine with kids is a whole other mess that needs it’s own hashtag.

Cats are done with us too.

We’re invading their home, cats have a right to be upset.

This person is willing to risk it all to get away from their family.

Sacrifices have to be made.

We just want to make it stop.

Sleeping for months straight sounds really nice.

We can all relate to this look right now.

And we’ll probably look like this for the next few months.

This person has found a way to cope.

Thank goodness there is no shortage of wine.

Everything is closed so we're in survival mode.

I hope everyone in my family appreciates the hair cuts I’m going to have to give them.

Sacrificies had to be made.

Being in a jail cell may be the only way to get a peaceful quarantine nap.

Being in quarantine with family is tough for introverts.

Introverts are going to need a social purge after this.

This person has the right idea.

Something we all need to do every day while the lockdown is going on.

Please tell me if this works.

I would do anything for an invisible cloak at this very moment.

This person just lost their wifi.

Good luck with surviving the quarantine without wifi.

What is time anyway?

And to think we have so much more to go in quarantine.

Marie Kondo would be proud.

It might be a good time to tidy up everything in your home.

I think we're all feeling this way.

Not every balcony is having a party or symphony. A lot of them are of people doing this.

This person has a new appreciation for The Simpsons.

The Simpsons is next on my list to binge.

This person has discovered an area of their home to be alone in.

No one ever goes down to the basement.

And we've only just started.

We seriously need a 2020 do over.

We're all in this together.

And together we’ll end up crazier than ever.

Someone wants to move in with another family.

Perhaps that neighbor has a pool and if that’s the case then I’m in.

Family game night is more fierce than ever.

Some of us have decided it's OK to give up.

If that means that I’ll get a bit of alone time then I give up to.

This sounds so pleasant.

Just turn on some nature sounds and it’s the real thing.

Some people are finding the joy in all of this.

And we should be happy for them.

For others, quarantine with family has no end.

Let’s flatten the curve so we can be free again. Enjoyed these? Well, stay tuned for some parenting quarantine hacks. Recently, Jimmy Fallon asked the internet for their quarantine parenting hacks, and boy, did they deliver…
