We’ll be honest – there’s not a ton to do in the* I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!* jungle when you’re not eating sheep balls in drinking deer blood. So it’s not surprising Nadia Forde chose to keep herself busy by flirting with Jake Quickenden.


Despite regularly denying they were anything more than friends since she left the jungle two days ago, Nadia, 25, has now admitted that she’s already got a date planned with the X Factor stud muffin.

The Irish model and TV star – who confessed she is “open to romance” with Jake, 26, admitted to The Sun: “There’s no doubt he’s good looking. He’s a sweetheart, a great guy.

“We’ve got a meal planned and we’re going to smash a chicken curry.”



Nadia also spoke about her one-to-one chats with Jake, adding: “He knew me. He could see right through me.”

But it wasn’t love at first sight…

“I remember exactly where I was when Jake came into the jungle.

“He went off and climbed a tree and he was telling me, ‘I think I’m going to do this in my calendar’. I thought, ‘Mother of God, what’s just come into the jungle?’. Then my opinion of him changed when he did that live trial. He smashed it.

“And people are getting to see what he’s like. In the X Factor he was this pretty boy — you didn’t really get to see his personality.

“In the jungle, you are getting to see him for what he is, the boy next door. He’s an amazing singer but he could do anything.”
