I’m A Celebrity 2019: Nervous Nadine Coyle wins power after conquering the skydive

Girls Aloud star living in luxurious Croc Creek camp with partner Adele Roberts

Adele Roberts and Nadine Coyle are the second ‘Power Pair’ on I’m A Celebrity 2019 after the latter conquered the iconic skydive.


This year the ITV jungle show kicked off with its new campmates pairing off to battle for power and privilege.

Three couples faced a terrifying 334ft-high plank walk, with winners Myles Stephenson and Roman Kemp becoming the first Power Pair.

The remaining four celebs embarked on a more traditional journey in to the Australian outback – but it was no less challenging.

A laminate informed them that coloured tokens had been placed on the ‘Pontoon of Doom’, floating in a lake.

The duo who retrieved their tokens the fastest would become the second Power Pair, living in the more comfortable Croc Creek camp.


However, while one member of each pair travelled out by canoe, the other would complete a skydive to collect the keys which unlocked the tokens.

Nadine got the jitters upon learning she was up for the daredevil stunt – having said she’d “never do it in a million years”.

“Oh my God, I thought the helicopter was bad enough,” she lamented.

Her partner Adele joked: “I’ll call the canoe Nadine after you. Hopefully not in memory of!”

Caitlyn Jenner also faced the skydive, leaving behind her partner James Haskell.

She told the instructors: “I’m a pilot and have flown for 45 years, but I’ve never jumped out of .”

Putting rivalry aside, the Olympian-turned-reality TV star offered support to Nadine.


“Nadine has never done anything like this,” she said. “I will do all that I can to help her.

“I think after it’s all over it’ll be one of the best experiences of her life. I’m glad to share it with her.”

With the big moment nearing, Caitlyn dropped some Kardashian names when Nadine asked if she knew any skydivers.

“Kendall has, Kim has and I think Kourtney has,” she revealed. “I’m gonna do this, everyone in my family has.”

Finally it was time to take the leap, and Caitlyn was all smiles on landing.

“That was so much fun!” she gasped. “I want to do it all again. I just want Nadine to get down and be OK.”


The nervous Girls Aloud star began screaming as she fell into the sky, but raved about the experience back on terra firma.

Greeted with a hug from a “very proud” Caitlyn, she exclaimed: “That was amazing!”

With the hardest part over, Caitlyn and Nadine joined their partners on the Pontoon – where they found the tokens were actually locked in holes full of critters.

Adele screamed relentlessly as she reached in to collect them, encountering green ants, cockroaches and spiders.

Once James had retrieved his tokens, presenters Ant and Deck checked in to reveal the results.

Caitlyn and James managed a time of 8 minutes and 28 seconds – but Adele and Nadine clocked in at 5 minutes and 21 seconds, making them the second Power Pair.

A helicopter whisked them to Croc Creek, where they later enjoyed a luxury first night dinner with Myles and Roman.


Meanwhile, Caitlyn and James joined the other losers in a Jeep to Snake Rock, where they had to sleep on the floor with only rice and beans to eat.

I’m A Celebrity continues every night at 9.00pm on ITV.
