Nadia Forde: I'm A Celebrity is great conversation starter
Nadia Forde has admitted her jungle experiences on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' have provided her with a "great conversation starter" when she meets new men
Nadia Forde says 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' is a "great conversation starter" when she meets new men.
The Irish model has been wowing potential suitors with her jungle experiences on the ITV show last year and admits people are often surprised to hear just how real the programme's infamous Bushtucker Trials are.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "It's been a great topic for boys. Boys are very interested to know what it's like to live in the jungle. It's been good for me in that way, it's a great conversation starter.
"Lads are like, 'Were they real rats in the coffin?' And I'm like, 'Of course they were.' But these guys are obviously petrified of rats and spiders."
While Nadia is looking to get a sneaky smooch by impressing with her knowledge, the 25-year-old stunner is longing for a kiss of a different kind as she admitted she misses receiving a morning embrace from her 'I'm A Celebrity' co-star Edwina Currie.
She added: "I miss everyone on the show, I miss them a lot. I miss the company. Edwina used to come over every morning and give me a kiss on the cheek and say, 'Good morning.' And I'm like, 'I don't have that anymore, it's so sad.' "
Nadia caught up with her 'I'm A Celebrity' co-stars at the National Television Awards last month and joked it was strange to see everyone dressed to impress rather than in their jungle attire.
She explained: "You can't go through something like that and not make friends, it's such a weird situation to be in and there is only nine other people who can relate to what happened.
"You live on top of each other for a couple of weeks so they know all your bad habits, they know everything. So to be sitting at an awards ceremony and think, 'These guys have seen me sleep.'
"I was like fully having nightmares at night, having to wake Jake up and ask him to look under my hammock to check if there was a rat under there. These guys know me inside out."
