Nadine Coyle has revealed her reasons for signing up to take part in I'm A Celebrity 2019.
The Girls Aloud singer has explained how she said yes to I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! in a bid to dispel her fear of trying anything new.
The 34-year-old says since she became a mum to her daughter, Anaiya, she has lost her gutsy attitude and become quite fearful of simple things in life like flying.
And by signing up for I’m a Celebrity, she hopes stepping outside her comfort zone will give her renewed confidence.
Ahead of launch, Nadine said: “I really want to try something completely new. I am scared of so many things. I used to be brave.
"In the past, I’ve opened a restaurant, had a record label, had my daughter and it was go, go, go with all of these.
"Now I have got so fearful even being in the car, flying or general things. I think it is since I became a parent that I am much more afraid.
“I really hope that by doing this, it pushes me so far out the comfort zone and that I learn to be comfortable, feel relaxed and do the things that I didn’t used to be afraid of.”
She added: “I am excited but it also feels like a dream still. I know it is going to be a whole different story when I get out there!”
Meanwhile, Nadine said her relatives have been left "shocked" by her decision.
She said: “They asked me what I was doing and pointed out I was afraid of my own shadow! But I am just hoping my Jungle lady will come out!
“My sister’s husband is an ex marine. He did offer to do some marine training with me in the run up to it but I thought that was a bit too extreme!”
I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here starts Sunday, November 17 at 9PM.
Ant and Dec are back to host the series nightly for three weeks.
