Nicola McLean has defended the I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! lineup after Katie Price savagely said the new series saying it's full of "non-celebs".
The former I'm A Celeb contestant chatted exclusively to the Daily Star about her no-filter thoughts on the programme and what she thought of Katie's comments.
On Monday, fellow ex campmate Katie and her fiancé Carl Woods shared their brutal take on this year's lineup, saying it's lacking a very crucial element.
The reality star stated that the hit ITV programme was missing actual celebrities and that the lineup was full of "non-celebs".
In a clip she shared on social media, the mum-of-five said: "It should be called Who Are They? Are You A Celebrity or Aren't You?"
Discussing Katie's savage opinions, Nicola divulged what she thought to showbiz reporter Carly Hacon on the Daily Star Facebook Live interview.
Nicola said: "I mean listen, Caitlyn Jenner just topped it. I think you have to be realistic.
"I was surprised Caitlyn Jenner went in, its the biggest show and the best show I absolutely love it but really famous people don't go on reality TV. That's just a fact and that's fine. So, I think that's unfair of Kate."
She continued: "I would say Frankie Bridge is a celebrity, David Ginola is a legend, Richard Madeley, Arlene Phillips.
"There was a few that I didn't know but was I really well known when I went in there? No… But it worked, I got most of the press that year and I was great for the show.
"So, sometimes it's nice to give people, I was a well-known Page 3 girl, some people knew me, people some people didn't and it worked out well for them and me."
Nicola added: "So, I think we have to give everyone a try, Posh and Becks aren't going to be going in there, what do you want? Y'know what I mean c'mon let's be realistic…
"We could just put Kate back in there again because she is good TV."
