Nicola McLean says she was receiving about 200 hate messages a day while she was in the I’m A Celebrity camp.

The model, who left the show on Tuesday, told the Daily Star her arguments with latest evictee David Van Day prompted more hate mail from fans.

“Apparently I was getting 200 hate messages a day sent to my website. And every time I rowed with David on the show, more came in,” she explained.

“Most were from women who called me a ‘cold, evil b***h. Others wrote ‘cover up, you s**g’ and someone said I was a bully. To be honest it shook me up.”

She continued: “I thought I would get loads of ‘girl power’ messages but I didn’t. But I did stay in the jungle til three days before the end so I had masses of support from my real friends and fans.”

And the blonde denied that she has copied fellow glamour model Katie Price, who also took part in the jungle reality show, despite signing up for a fly-on-the-wall reality show with her footballer beau Tommy Williams.

“Jordan has always been an icon to me and still is. I never copied her. People just see two girls with big breasts and call that copying. What Jordan has done with her career is amazing. But she is her and I am me.

“She is still my idol but everything I did in that jungle was me being myself.”
