Big fan: Alice gushed that Will was ‘wonderful’ and that her daughter was being her full authentic self
Speaking about Will, she added: ‘We all think he’s wonderful and couldn’t be happier that him and Jessie have found each other.
‘I am very touched by his gentle caring side and love the fact that he has a wicked sense of humour and isn’t scared to have a laugh at himself.’
Jessie has said on the show several times, that she plans on moving from Australia to the UK and her mum has thrown her fulls support behind her.
Alice said: ‘We are all very supportive of whatever makes Jessie happiest. Jessie was in the UK last year and loved it.
‘She’s never shy to jump on a plane so I’m sure we’d be seeing each other regularly no matter the distance. Technology nowadays also makes it super easy to stay connected.’
Will has spoken at length about his farm back home, and Alice said Jessie will be right at home there.
She explained: ‘Jessie often talks about living in the country and has always been proud of her rural upbringing.
‘She’s never been afraid of hard work or getting her hands dirty. Jessie is good with animals, she’s grown up with plenty around her.’
Meanwhile, she added that Will would do well in Australia too, saying: ‘I think Will would really enjoy Australia and the Australian lifestyle.
‘He seems to be a real outdoorsy type and there are plenty of outside activities to keep him busy. Australians love a larrikin and a farmer, he’d fit right in!
‘I don’t see Will having too many issues with the wildlife so long as Jessie is around to rescue him from the insects.’
Speaking on what she would say given the chance to talk to Jessie in the villa ,Alice said: ‘I would tell Jessie how much we love her, we are proud of her, that she is a force of nature and has carried herself well.’

Discussing her favourite moment on the show so far, she said: ‘We loved the Casa episode and were so pleased when Kai chose to bring Sanam back. And Kai’s outfit when he went to The Hideaway Retreat. We all thought that that was hilarious.’
Jill added: ‘If I could speak to Kai I would tell him to carry on being himself. I’d tell him that I love him and can’t wait to give him a huge hug and tell him I’m so proud of him.’
