YouTuber Nella Rose became a household name when she took on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! 2023. Used to her long french tip nails and perfectly laid wigs, the Aussie jungle was definitely a change of scenery for the social media star.

Nella, who has earned her fame through YouTube and content creation, said she wanted to go into the jungle because it will take her out of her comfort zone. Speaking to ITV she said: "I have lots of survival skills... I can light a match."

The 26-year-old shared the camp with the likes of Jamie Lynn Spears and Marvin Humes. She captured people's attention after a clash with Fred Sirieix and a couple of race-based rows with Nigel Farage.

Many will know Nella from iconic quotes like "I wanna shake my a** on a yacht... in Dubai", or you might recognise her from Catfish UK - or you may have never seen her before, either way, here's everything you need to know about her.
