I'm A Celebrity fans were taken aback after Nella Rose criticised Fred Sirieix in tonight's show.

The two campmates have travelled Down Under for this season of TV's toughest entertainment challenge. However, the show started off on a dramatic note as Nella explained she had cut ties with Fred over comments he made.

She said: "I didn’t say anything about it last night because I was kind of just annoyed about it. So I slept on it and I kind of thought about it and I was just like, this is not the kind of person I want to be around.”

Nella has previously opened up on how she has suffered tragedy in her family as her mum and dad have both died. The YouTube star explained she was hurt by a comment Fred had made the night before as she said: "When I wanted to burn fat that you were going to throw away anyways, it’s not even something that we needed to survive in camp, you turned around to me, with an attitude and said, ‘You know I could be your dad, right?’

"To me, I don’t care how you said it to me, it’s disrespectful and I don’t want to talk to you. I don’t want to be around you. I only allow people to disrespect me once."

Fred issued an apology as he said: "I am so sorry. Can I just say? First of all, I am sorry I’ve offended you. I am unaware that you felt offended. I am unaware that what I said would lead to this conversation, I only said that in a way because I am older than you, I am 51 and you’re 26.”

Nella said: “I’m not stupid, you’re not going to little girl me, you’re not.” Viewers following the show on social media platform X sided with Fred after the debate and fans were concerned the disagreement could lead to Nella being voted out first.

James added: "I’m worried about Nella. I can see a pattern now, people are gunning for her because of the argument with Fred. She’ll be up for every trial and probably end up leaving"

Jamie commented: "Nella screaming at Fred, leaving the trial early and soon she'll be leaving the camp early"

Jo posted: "Well that's Nella being voted out first then isn't it."

Andrew posted: "Nella - you've gone from being a firm favourite to first to be voted out"
