Girls Aloud's Nadine Coyle is heading into the 2019 I'm A Celebrity jungle, so here's everything you need to know about the Northern Irish star.
Former Girls Aloud member, Nadine Coyle, is one of the campmates heading into the 2019 I'm A Celebrity jungle, and as we see celebs touch down in Oz, everyone's starting to wonder if we'll be getting all of the girlband tea from the Irish singer?
Nadine, who is originally from Northern Ireland, has since lived in LA and London.
Her former bandmate, Kimberley Walsh told the Mirror she was shocked she was headed into the jungle.
She said: "I'm really surprised that she's doing it because it wouldn't be something I'd expect her to do but it's going to be really fun to watch."
The 'Love Machine' singer was also open about the fact she doesn't keep in contact with Nadine anymore, adding: "We don't really speak often at all. She obviously moved to America and I guess we just sort of drifted apart like you do really."
Nadine, 34, is indeed joining the 2019 line-up, which will also star Caitlyn Jenner, James Haskell and Ian Wright.
She follows in the footsteps of further girlband members including Hear'Say's Myleene Klass and The Saturdays' Vanessa White, with her bandmate Frankie Bridge also rumoured to join this year's line-up.
Before heading into the jungle she said she "really wanted to try something new" and plans to "be brave" with whatever the jungle may throw her way.

The 'Love Machine' singer has a daughter, Anaíya Bell, who was born in 2014, with her ex-fiancé Jason Bell, who she is no longer in a relationship with.
She was with the American footballer for 11 years from 2008 - 2019, getting engaged and briefly splitting in 2011, before reconciling until September of this year.
A source told this publication as news of their split broke: "Although Nadine and Jason were never married, they lived as a close family unit and remain good friends as they co-parent their young daughter."
Before Jason, Nadine was notoriously in a relationship with John Tucker Must Die actor and heartthrob, Jesse Metcalfe.
After the band, Nadine launched her own solo career, having released music throughout the years right up until today!
She released an album, 'Insatiable' in 2010, and single 'Go to Work' in 2017, as well as a song 'Fool For Love' in 2019, and also regularly appears on TV on shows including Celebrity Juice, Saturday Kitchen, and even had a cameo in hit movie St. Trinians.
As one of the biggest girlbands of all time, unsurprisingly Nadine has raked in the millions, with the Sunday Times Rich List estimating she was worth £6 million in 2013.
The band as a whole made a whopping £30 million by 2010.
The band went on a hiatus in 2009 and parted ways in 2013, and where as Cheryl, Nicola Roberts and Kimberly Walsh have remained close friends ever since, the same cannot be said for Nadine, who has been open about her distance from the others, telling this publication: "We're all very different characters."
She said: "It's so sad for me to have to admit this stuff now because for so long, there's the band, and you want everybody to think we're best friends."
Nadine confirmed she doesn't stay in contact with any of her of her former bandmates whilst appearing on Celebrity Juice, but insists there was no "falling out". Although, their conversation didn't really scratch the surface, so we know everyone will be waiting with baited breath for her to spill the tea in the jungle!
