We're now a handful of episodes into this year's long-awaited season of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! and there's already been stacks of drama.
From Grace Dent's shock exit or Nella Rose and Fred Sirieix's clash to Marvin Hulme's rule-breaking and Jamie Lynn Spears' several breakdowns - we've definitely not been short of some proper good telly.
Nicola, 42, first appeared on the ITV series back in 2008 and opened up about her time on the show.
The glamour model revealed to the Daily Star: "Yeah they give you secret code names before you go onto the show.
"It's when production and security are speaking to other security guards on walkie-talkies they can't say 'I've got Nicola' so they use your code name.
"I can't remember my code name now but we definitely all had one."
She also opened up about her relationship to one of this year's contestants, Sam, saying he once slammed one of her friends online.
Nicola claimed: "I love Sam Thompson but I was once at an award ceremony with Rebekah Vardy and he literally kissed her a** the whole time.
"Then a couple of weeks later, literally tweeted something s**t about her and I thought well you have been licking our a** for football tickets."
The media personality recalled: "I didn't like that thought that was weird as f**k.
"It's not even because she's my friend. I just don't like people doing that. I don't like two-faced people. I decided to call him out on Twitter over it but he didn't reply to me."
Nicola admitted that the alleged exchange happened 'years ago' and 'might have been' before Rebekah went into the jungle herself for the 17th season of the reality programme.
"The tweet might have been something about her going into the jungle or something like that and 'not knowing' who she was," she went on.
"And I was like, 'Well, you knew who she was when you were kissing her a**'."
Tyla has reached out to Sam Thompson's representatives for a comment.
In other I'm A Celeb news, Ant McPartlin has been slammed by fans over his 'mean' comments about Sam.
Sam has shown to be pretty affectionate towards his campmates - having been very excited to meet boxer Tony Bellew and giving him a hug and also hugging everyone after succeeding in his trial.
And when talking about Sam's participation, Ant quipped: "At least the trial went well. It delivered the ultimate prize for camp, the one thing they value more than anything."
When Dec replied: "Food," Ant joked back: "No, an hour without being hugged by Sam. That would have been bliss.
"You see, he is a nice kid and all that, he is a nice kid but the hug is too much. I wouldn't like that, that's too much for me. Back off."
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs on ITV Sunday to Friday at 9pm and Saturday at 9.30pm.
