Ever since Nella told her family she would be taking part on I'm a Celebrity, she admits they have been "laughing hysterically".

She explained: "They asked me why I agreed to do this, but I've been watching I'm a Celebrity ever since I was a child, and I still remember Ian Wright locked up in a room with an ostrich. It's so iconic, and it's why I said 'yes' immediately."

How well Nella will do when it comes to the creepy crawlies in the jungle is a whole different story.

Prior to her appearance on the show, Nella admitted she is "scared of everything", and even moved out when a daddy long-legs flew into her living room.

She added: "I am terrified, but I'm trying to think of the bigger picture. In this life, you have to face up to your fears. Yes, I might scream the whole time, but I am going to think about feeding human beings and I am going to try my best."

Nella is hoping that her time in the jungle will be a "big learning experience", and that living on a diet of rice and beans with put aside thoughts of insects crawling into her sleeping bag at night.

Reflecting on her like as an internet star, Nella admits it'll be nice to live a more carefree life in camp without her phone in tow.

"I am going to miss my phone, but it's going to be quite refreshing to step away from my life and relax. I never relax, my phone is always going off and I've got a busy schedule. I am excited to slow down now," she said.
