I’m a Celeb’s Nella Rose has spoken out after leaving the jungle.

Nella became the second campmate to be voted out, following the departure of jockey Frankie Dettori, with the show's official X account saying: "Nella’s epic journey has seen her face - and conquer - so many fears but your votes mean her time in the Jungle is up!"


She was expected to appear on Lorraine earlier this week, but the interview never went ahead.


"I can tell you what's coming up following Nella's jungle exit last night," host Lorraine Kelly told viewers yesterday.

"It's a shame she's not talking to anybody, but anyway, I'm going to be joined by Nick Pickard's girlfriend, Sarah."

However, she has now broken her silence on her exit from the show, speaking on This Morning via video link.

"Everything in the jungle everything is intensified," she explained after being questioned about her feud with Fred, adding that she found his comments triggering.


However, she insisted that they were still friends.

Nella continued: "I haven't been able to watch anything back yet.

"But I know everything that's gone on.

"It is a big, fat misunderstanding - we have got over it."


She added: "I understand, it's TV, it's live."

Speaking about fellow contestant Nigel Farage, the MTV presenter said: "We had some very interesting conversations that need to be had.

"It is what is is.

"It is good to hear different opinions."

As for whether or not she'd have done anything differently, Nella said defiantly: "What you see is what you get.

"I am like Marmite you either love me or hate me."

During her time in the jungle, Nella won many fans over with her no-holds-barred approach, having famously taken on controversial politician Nigel Farage as they debated the topic of immigration.


Speaking about the former UKIP leader in her exit interview, Nella told Ant and Dec: "I think that Nigel is an amazing person, until he speaks about what he really believes in, and it’s like, 'You’re a cool guy but why do you think like that?'"

At one point, she also had an unexpected clash with Fred Sirieix after he joked that he was old enough to be her dad – not realising that his comments would touch a nerve for Nella, who sadly lost her own father in 2020.

Nella continued: "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 asked if the whole thing may have been a simple misunderstanding, she added: “It could have been, but things are so heightened in the jungle that everything is a big thing."

At one point, it looked like Nella's time in camp may have been cut short as she was forced to leave due to medical reasons.

In a statement, an ITV spokesperson explained: "For medical reasons, Nella Rose is being treated by the show's on-site medics and will be returning to camp shortly.

"As a result, she is exempt from the next trial."

However, it thankfully wasn't long before she returned to continue with the contest.

I’m a Celebrity continues at 9pm on ITV and ITVX.
