The Irish star is taking part in the 2013 series of the British show but he was given a shock by producers on Wednesday (27Nov13) when they secretly took his wife Jodi to the set.
Egan had been awarded a night in a luxury hotel for winning a gruesome challenge, and he was left speechless and in tears when Jodi walked onto a veranda as he enjoyed a meal.
The singer hugged and kissed his wife, telling her, "I can't believe it. I love you so much."
However, Egan's joy was short-lived - within hours of the emotional meeting he was back in the rainforest camp to continue his stint on the survival show.
Egan and other stars including U.S. actor Alfonso Ribeiro and Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington are spending three weeks camped in the wilderness, where they must endure stomach-churning endurance tests to win their food.
