Nicola McLean was voted off I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! on Tuesday night – and immediately branded fellow camper David van Day a ‘vile creature’.

The glamour girl was given the boot from the ITV1 show after receiving the fewest number of votes from the public.

While Nicola described eating bugs as her ‘worst nightmare’, she then had plenty to say about her jungle nemesis, ex-Dollar singer David.

She told hosts Ant and Dec: “I’m excited to be out – but gutted I didn’t outlast David, what were the public thinking?”

She went on: “As soon as he walked in, I disliked him. He knew Joe was favourite to win, he targeted Joe and tried to split up the camp.

“I could have had a better time with Joe, had he not been swayed by that vile, vile creature.”

When asked why she thought David had tried to get her to join in his game-playing, Nicola replied: “I think he thought I was playing a game too, and that we could do it together.”

But Nicola admitted she was having none of it. “Me flirt with him?,” she said. “That’s disgraceful, he’s old enough to be my dad!”

Nicola couldn’t decide who she wanted to win the show, saying: “Simon, Simon, Simon, no Joe, er Martina!”

Earlier, ex-EastEnders star Joe managed to take a break from camp – by taking part in the latest Bushtucker Trial, Tower of Terror, in which he successfully scaled a 100-feet tower to claim six stars.

Then the remaining campmates decided to get one over on David by agreeing not to save him any of the chocolate brownie they’d won after successfully learning about each other’s jobs.
