Sophia Hutchins, Caitlyn Jenner's 23-year-old partner, recently revealed that it had not been easy watching the former Olympic athlete break down into tears while competing in the British reality show,  'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.'

The entrepreneur said during Tuesday's episode of 'Lorraine', that she felt "helpless" and wanted to get "on a plane to Australia" to find out what was up with her 70-year-old partner after she saw the latter struggling with the forces of nature in the jungle where the show is being shot. 

"It hasn't been easy to watch at all. When there's someone across the globe you feel helpless to begin with. When you throw in these challenges and see her crying, it's been gut-wrenching," she said, Daily Mail reported.

Although the experience of watching the former 'KUWTK' star perform the tasks has been "difficult," Caitlyn "knew what she was getting herself in for," Sophia said. However, she thought her partner would bring a lot of fun in the group of celebrities, so when she broke down in tears during the filming of the first episode of the ITV show, she was really concerned. 

"When I saw her crying the first night, I was just in shock. Everyone that knows her who I've spoken with was sending me these messages saying, 'Is she okay, this isn't the Caitlyn we know?'" she said. "The Caitlyn we know is super excited, super positive, super energetic, rarely sheds a tear. So we were all freaked out by that."

As for what she would miss in the jungle, Sophia laid out a list. 

"Well food. I think food is a big one. We have two dogs, two Labradors, and I think she will miss them. Obviously family. In Malibu we have our life. It's like every morning wake up, work out, eat breakfast, work, and kind of go about and do your day... She probably misses the things we take for granted every day, having a shower... but I think she will pull through," Sophia said.
