On episode four of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! 2023 Nella and former politician Nigel Farage got into a row over immigration in the jungle 'bathroom'. Danielle, who was there trying run a bath with Nella, found her self right in the middle of their exchange.
She charmed viewers when she told the bush telegraph: "I did not expect to be caught in a full on debate. I really didn't, I just wanted a bubble bath."
As social media is a flood with compliments for the soap star, we have collated some of the viewers' favourite Danielle jungle moments.

Danielle Harold's best I'm A Celeb moments (so far)
She's the reassuring campmate:
The 31-year-old actress is there for her campmates to lean on when they are in times of distress. Jamie Lynn Spears has been struggling with being apart from her family in the states and when she's been upset Danielle has been quick to offer support.
On the second night of being in the jungle, Danielle and Sam suggested Jamie Lynn took a bath to lift her spirits. And when the Zoey 101 star still felt down the next day Danielle gave her a pep talk.
"Look at the sh** you've been through in your life, right, this - a little bit of rain in the jungle, [it's] nothing," Danielle told the mum of two. After her words of encouragement Jamie Lynn went on to win all ten stars in her bush tucker trail.
One viewer reacted to the moment, saying: "Danielle's the sweetest, her parents must be really proud of her."
Her random luxury item:
Danielle shocked viewers when she revealed that her luxury item was an inflatable pineapple for the campmates to use in the creek. While it seemed like a random choice she said she did it to lift camp morale. One viewer described it as a "kind and selfless" use of her luxury item.
She doesn't shy away from debate:
Nella and Nigel's immigration debate wasn't the first time Danielle found herself in the middle of a political row, when Fred Sirieix challenged Nigel on Brexit she didn't shy away from the conversation, telling the bush telegraph that she got "stuck" into it.
And later on in the show when Nigel named Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair as the UK's strongest Prime Ministers viewers noted Danielle's very reactive facial expressions.
The EastEnders actress also had a viral moment with her impression of Nigel complaining about mess around the camp. Danielle had told Nigel she'd take the rubbish away the follow morning, to which he replied: "You won't, no we are going to get everything tidied away properly tonight after last nights c**k up."
Speaking to Marvin Humes she threw her hands in the air and put on her best Nigel voice: "We will not have another c**k up tonight."
