I’m A Celeb star Nella Rose admits she plans to WALK but doesn’t want to be the first – as she reveals her weight climbed from a size 12 to a size 20 following the death of her dad
Nella Rose sensationally admitted she wanted to leave the jungle during Wednesday night’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
The YouTuber star, 26, who has been at the centre of a controversy storm in recent days, revealed that she would have left if Jamie Lynn Spears had first.
Nella revealed that she struggles with discipline and has never completed anything in her life without quitting, which she said stems from being in a ‘bad space’ following the death of her father in 2020.
The social media personality fell out with her campmate Fred Siriex during Tuesday’s episode when he told her he was ‘old enough to be her father’.
Nella shocked viewers when she lashed out at Fred 51, for his comments, branding him a ‘weirdo’ and claiming she would not speak to him or eat any food prepared by him for the remainder of her time in camp.

The reality star’s conflict with Fred appears to be taking its toll as she confided in her co-star Grace Dent that she has been considering leaving the show.
Nella told Grace she doesn’t follow through with things explaining: ‘I’ve never, ever in my life started something and finished it.
‘Ever. I always quit, or I always sign on short term or if I don’t like it I can leave… this is the one thing I said I’m going to try and stick it through but I can already see myself… if I get in my head too much…’
Grace asked: ‘Do you bolt, you run the minute things start to pick up?’
Nella said: ‘When I was younger I was put in a lot of situations that I had no control over. I was sad and miserable. So now that I have the control over my happiness and the things I want to do I think I’m kind of, I’ve become obsessed with it: “Oh, you don’t have to do this if you don’t want to.”
Nella in Bush Telegraph added: ‘Whenever I feel uncomfortable, whenever I feel sad I do tend to leave. I do tend to not carry things through if I feel uncomfortable. So the fact I’ve lasted in the jungle for this long is astonishing.’
Continuing her conversation with Grace, she explained that she has struggled with her weight because of her issues with discipline.
She said: ‘I used to have so much discipline but that was when I was in a bad space. Lack of self discipline got me from a size 12 to a size 20.

Tension in camp: The social media personality fell out with her campmate Fred Siriex during Tuesday’s episode when he told her he was ‘old enough to be her father’
‘Literally my dad passed, I locked myself in the house for two months, I drank every single day and ate every single day and I gained it all and it was pandemic.’
Nella admitted: ‘If Jamie left yesterday I would have been right behind her… I’m leaving. I just don’t want to be the first.’
On Wednesday, I’m A Celeb viewers have called on show bosses to intervene after Nella’s ‘unacceptable’ behaviour in the jungle.
First Dates star Fred had been referring to their 25-year age gap but Nella took offence at the turn of phrase because hours earlier she had told the campmates that she had lost both her parents.
A clip of the comment was shown to viewers before their row, prompting baffled viewers to claim that Nella had overreacted and beg producers to step in and speak to her about her behaviour.
Several fans compared the row to the infamous Celebrity Big Brother ‘punchgate’ when Roxanne Pallett accused fellow housemate Ryan Thomas of ‘repeatedly and deliberately punching’ her when he had in fact lightly tapped her arm while playfighting.

Weighing in on Dadgate, shocked viewers shared: ‘Nella is so rude! Her behaviour towards Fred is unacceptable. The show’s producers need to speak to her.’; ‘The producers of “I’m a celebrity” should have summoned Nella to immediately explain her toxic and narcissitic behaviour, in the same way that Big Brother dealt with Roxanne Pallett. It was a golden opportunity to expose gaslighting. ITV has some explaining to do.’;
‘This is like Roxanne in big brother all over again!!!! Total bully! Producers need to make entitled nella to apologise’; ‘I feel so bad for Nella, but this is not it. I almost wish they didn’t air it and that the producers helped them fix it in private, because he really didn’t mean it like that. #ImACeleb’;
‘Nella is the Roxanne Pallett of the jungle’; ‘Sorry but Nella is giving Roxanne Pallett vibes. There, I said it. Is she quite alright?? #ImACele’; ‘Nella doing a full on Roxanne Pallet. She should be removed immediately, dangerous dangerous character. Poor Fred #ImACelebrity’; ‘Nella giving Roxanne Pallet on Big Bro #ImACeleb’
‘Fred is a very bless guy I dunno why Nella didn’t give him the benefit of the doubt especially after the sincere apology. Hopefully the producers get involved & squash it.’; ‘I haven’t a clue who Nella is but her behaviour is abhorrent. Producers need to tell her that was straight out bullying. Apologise ASAP. Fred didn’t do anything wrong yet he still apologise. Bless him.’;
‘No one deserves abuse but I do think the producers need to re-play the clip to Nella and explain Fred’s intentions, also allow Fred to, and to see why Nella reacted the way she did. Do feel sorry for Fred though’; ‘I’m kind of anxious about the treatment Nella will receive and she’s oblivious, this is one of those moments where I would like the producers to speak to her about the public’s opinions so she can mend fences or just be civil or apologize to Fred #ImACeleb’;
‘The producers need to pattern this Nella and Fred situation, there is no way she should be starving because of this. #ImACeleb’; ‘I need the producers to intercept and put things into perspective for Nella because it’s clearly a really really sensitive topic for her and Fred definitely meant no harm. He even apologised several times. Maybe if she gets an outside perspective she can redeem herself’; ‘Can the producers please arrange for Fred and Nella to do the next task together. #ImACeleb’.
Fred’s partner – who he affectionately calls Fruitcake, weighed in on the argument as she re-posted an Instagram Story from Fred’s Instagram page that read: ‘Tough watch for some of the show tonight but Fred did us so proud – we know his intention would never be to upset anyone. Keep your head up Fred – we love you.’
An ITV spokesman told MailOnline that producers have not spoken to Nella or Fred about the argument.

Outrage: Weighing in on Dadgate, shocked viewers hit out at the scenes and urged producers to pull up Nella on her behaviour
The incident comes five years on from CBB’s punchgate, which Ofcom revealed was the most complained about moment of the decade.
Ryan was left baffled and devastated by Roxanne’s accusations as he continually pleaded his innocence after Big Brother cruelly issued him an official warning – despite footage clearly showing Roxanne’s allegations were entirely false.
Roxanne – who later dubbed herself ‘Britain’s Most Hated Woman’ – later quit the show and admitted she was wrong after seeing Ryan’s devastation, which saw him breakdown on a number of occasions in the house.
Ofcom received a staggering 25,327 complaints about the incident.
Nella and Fred’s heated exchange was shown within minutes of Tuesday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity.
In the scenes, the campmates were complaining about the wet weather, with Fred saying: ‘It’s just rain, rain, rain, it’s chucking it down.’
Grace said: ‘Camp to me feels like about day 11 at Glastonbury. Really rainy Glastonbury. Instead of seeing Coldplay tonight, I’m just going to see Fred in his underpants again.’
Fred then tried to offer Nella rice, but she ignored his calls to her.
In the Bush Telegraph Nella explained: ‘Last night after dinner Fred made a comment about him basically how he could be my dad.
‘I took offence to that because one of the first conversations we had together was me opening up about the fact that my dad’s passed away.’

Fred asked again: ‘Seriously Nella, you should eat, don’t you think? Nella? Nella? Nella?’ as she asked: ‘Right, so why does he keep calling me?’
Fred called again: ‘Nella?’ as the camera cut to Nella in the Bush Telegraph and she continued: ‘I didn’t say anything about it last night because I was kind of just annoyed about it. So I slept on it and I kind of thought about it and I was just like, this is not the kind of person I want to be around.’
Fred approached Nella and said: ‘Nella? Darling? You don’t want to eat?’ to which she replied: ‘Can you leave me alone?’ and Fred answered: ‘OK.’ He went on to ask: ‘What have I done to you?

Nella explained he’d made a comment the day before, saying: ‘You know that my mum’s dead, and you know that my dad’s dead. You know that, right?
‘I’ve come to find out that every time I wanna get creative around the fire, or I want to have something my way, my own food that I am entitled to, my way, you tend to get an attitude, right?
‘So yesterday, when I wanted to burn fat that you were going to throw away anyways, it’s not even something that we needed to survive in camp, you turned around to me, with an attitude and said, ”You know I could be your dad, right?” To me, I don’t care how you said it to me, it’s disrespectful and I don’t want to talk to you.
‘I don’t want to be around you. I only allow people to disrespect me once. You hurt my feelings.
‘I was very upset… you keep trying to speak to me when I don’t want to speak to you. I would rather stay away from you, I don’t want to eat your food, I don’t want to talk to you. We can just live, you live on that side, I live on this side.’
Fred replied: ‘I am so sorry. Can I just say? First of all, I am sorry I’ve offended you. I am unaware that you felt offended. I am unaware that what I said would lead to this conversation, I only said that in a way because I am older than you, I am 51 and you’re 26.’
Nella said: ‘I’m not stupid, you’re not going to little girl me, you’re not.’
Fred said: ‘Nella, it wasn’t like that at all.’
Fred added: ‘Either I made a mistake and I said something and I offended you, I’m really sorry. I’m really sorry you feel like this.’
Nella said: ‘I accept your apology, but in order for us to live in this camp together, I don’t want to eat no food that you’re cooking, don’t talk to me, you stay over there, I stay over here and we can live. I’m good. Yeah. You stay over there. Look at your face, you’re smiling.’
Fred went on to ask: ‘You could have said straight away, ‘Excuse me Fred this is upsetting me.’
Nella said: ‘Can you not clock on the vibe?’
Fred replied: ‘No, because you’ve been sleeping quite a lot so I thought you were tired. If I made a faux pas, unwillingly, unconsciously, I am very sorry.
‘But this was all it was. That’s all it was. If you want to take it to the nth degree and not speak to me anymore, it’s your choice.’
Nella told Fred: ‘You only get one chance to disrespect me. I accept your apology but let’s not be friends. How about that?’
Viewers were quick to brand Nella’s attitude as ‘vile’ while ‘Poor Fred’ quickly began trending on X.
Nella has previously spoken about her tragic past with the devastating loss of both parents plunging her and her older brother into homelessness while she was at
