The 35-year-old author – who shares sons Buzz, Buddy and Max with McFly star husband Tom Fletcher – seemed emotional ahead of her I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! stint.
And it seems as though her boys felt the same, as they hugged their mum for the last time before seeing her on their TV screens.
Taking to Instagram, Giovanna – whose brother is former TOWIE Mario Falcone – opened up about the sweet moment as she said goodbye to her boys by the front door.
