I’m A Celeb’s Nella Rose finally reveals what REALLY happened in Dadgate row with Fred Sirieix


Nella Rose has finally broken her silence on her controversial I’m A Celebrity stint.

The social media influencer had pushed back her post-show interviews on Tuesday, pulling out of a scheduled remote appearance on Lorraine because she needed time to ‘process’ her experiences in the Jungle.

Yet by Wednesday, she had a change of heart and appeared via remote link on This Morning moments before the latest evictee Fred Sirieix was due to be interviewed.

The YouTuber, 26, had several ups and downs in the Jungle, among them clashes with First Dates star Fred and former UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

The row between Nella and Dadgate

With Fred just meters away from her, Nella was asked about Dadgate, the row in which she lashed out at the maître d’ for saying he ‘could be her dad’ due to his age.

Nella revealed her side of the story, explaining that while she had been unable to watch the footage back, she was ‘aware’ of what had been put across.

She told hosts Emma Willis and Rylan: ‘It was a big fat misunderstanding.

‘We’ve gone over it, everything is cool, everything is blessed. I don’t know why everyone’s still crying about it.’

‘In the Jungle, everything is intensified. That subject [parents] is very triggering for me because its a fresh wound but everything in the Jungle is intense.’

Nella’s time in the Jungle

During her time in the Jungle, Nella was voted to be camp leader and threw a spanner in the works when she declared that trained chef Fred could no longer be camp cook.

She instead put him on pot washing duties, declaring it ‘karma’ for ‘making her life hell.’

Asked why she made the decision, Nella quipped: ‘In the Jungle the little bit of drama that happens is your EastEnders. I stirred the pot to make things fun, it’s just who I am.’

Fred commented on the incident

Yet Fred had nothing but kind words to say about his campmate, echoing her sentiments when he was asked about Dadgate during his interview, which came moments after Nella’s.

He explained: ‘It was a misunderstanding, the jungle is a pressure cooker.’

Fred went on to hit out at the amount of backlash Nella has received, saying: ‘I was very surprised of the hate for Nella.

‘It’s totally wrong and unfair and it’s not in my name. Nella is a lovely girl. Things happen, you move on and I don’t know what all the fuss is about.’

Fred and Nella’s relationship became strained after he remarked ‘I could be your dad’ during a conversation about their age difference, which promoted a negative reaction from Nella, who lost her father in 2020.
