A DERRY charity which provides free transport for cancer patients is calling on local people to get behind its patron Nadine Coyle and help her to win I’m A Celebrity.
The 34-year-old entered the Australian jungle on Sunday night, jumping 10,000 ft from an airplane to land in the outback for a gruelling few weeks of bush tucker trials.
Northern Irish Cancer Care, based on Spencer Road in the city, says it wants Derry people to throw their weight behind Nadine in the hope she can be crowned Queen of the Jungle.
A spokesperrson for NICC told Derry Daily: “We are so lucky to have her on board as our patron.
“The public need to know of the great work she does.”
Nadine recently posted a video on the charity’s Facebook page thanking everyone for all their donations.
Said Nadine: “As proud patron of Northern Irish Cancer Care I was so happy and so thankful for all your kind donations.
“There is simply no way we could help cancer without you helping us.”
Nadine sigmed off by blowing a big kiss to the camera.
Meanwhile back at camp, Ant McPartlin revealed the I’m A Celebrity campmates were furious after they discovered the first task was a swimming challenge.
The celebrities started swearing off camera after the revelation – in scenes so bad co-presenter Declan Donnelly said he was glad he wasn’t the one to break the news.
Speaking on the ITV2 spin-off show Extra Camp, Ant said: “Nobody liked the news. There were quite a few swear words!
“I just gave the news and walked off – there was quite a lot of b****ing, believe me!
“But to be fair, they eventually just got in and got on with it.”
Dec then joked: “I’m glad Ant revealed that… I would have given in and said ‘don’t worry, you don’t have to do it’.”
The first task of the series saw Myles Stephenson, Kate Garraway, Ian Wright, James Haskell and Nadine Coyle racing to the shore after some time on a luxury yacht.Whoever made it to land first was able to pick who they wanted to be partnered from the other contestants.
However, the stars were forced to dive into the water fully clothed – something which didn’t go down well with Kate Garraway in particular.
Myles came in first place, picking Roman, with James Haskell shortly after, so he chose Caitlyn.
Nadine managed to swim in the opposite direction to the coast at first, yet still managed to get in third. She chose Adele Roberts.
Former sportsman Ian Wright came fourth, selecting Jacqueline Jossa.
Kate, managing to avoid getting her hair wet, came in last, leaving her with Andrew Maxwell.
I’m A Celebrity is on each night on ITV at 9 pm.
