‘It’s painful to read the disgusting racist and body-shaming comments online’

Yesterday evening, Nella Rose was eliminated from I’m A Celeb as a week of exits continue before Sunday’s Grand Final.

Nella, who divided opinion during her time in the camp, faced a number of trials and clashed with a number of co-stars too during her spell in the jungle.

After being eliminated from the show, Nella joined Ant and Dec for the age-old exit interview, during which she was asked about her now legendary bust-up with Fred Sirieix.

Speaking about the incident she said: “I just feel like in the middle of an argument, or in the middle of a disagreement, you shouldn’t bring up sensitive topics.

“And I feel like, in the middle of a disagreement, he brought up a sensitive topic. I didn’t understand why he would do that.”

When she was asked if it could have just been a misunderstanding, Nella said: “It could have been, but things are so heightened in the jungle that everything is a big thing.”

In the aftermath of leaving, Judi Love spoke on Loose Women about the “disgusting racist and body-shaming” comments which were made at Nella while she was in the jungle.

She said: “It was an eventful week on I’m A Celebrity… and I was sad to see Grace Dent and Jamie Lynn Spears both leave – I still haven’t got a favourite to win yet.

“The controversy around Nella Rose has been difficult, and it’s painful to read the disgusting racist and body-shaming comments online.”

In her weekly column with OK!, Judi added: “It’s crazy that people forget she’s a young woman immersed in one of the biggest reality celebrity shows in the UK.

“Let’s hope that over the next few weeks we get to see more of the contestants living their true unedited experiences! Oh, and I am so here for the Rochelle love stories from Marvin.”
