FM104 won't play my records or talk about me because I dated Mark Noble, says Nadia Forde

Nadia Forde has hit out at Dublin radio station FM104 claiming they don't play her songs because her ex-boyfriend - DJ Mark Noble - works there.
The 25-year-old used to date Strawberry Alarm Clock presenter Mark before she went out with Leinster star Luke Fitzgerald.
"They're the only station in Ireland to never play my records. They don't even talk about me," the model/singer/reality star said.
"F**k it, I might as well be honest... They'll probably love the press."
Nadia pointed out that it was "weird" and said "they even played my new song Stuck on BBC Radio 2".
She claimed the station did not support her while she was appearing on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
But an FM 104 spokesperson said there was "no way we would let a former relationship affect our product".
When asked about Nadia's comments they said that her music isn't the right "fit" for the station.
"There is no ban on Nadia's records at FM104," they said.
"What we have are a team who look after the music and Nadia's music might not fit with our play-list. We pride ourselves on backing and supporting Irish acts at FM104."
Meanwhile, Nadia is currently promoting her new reality show, Nadia: Chasing the Dream, which follows her as she pursues her music career, and she admits it was tough having the cameras on her all the time.
"There were times were we were filming 16 hours a day," she said.
"It was hard, especially after being in the jungle, and there were moments when I said to the camera men, 'I just need an hour' and they were respectful of that."
Nadia now lives in London and says she works hard to keep her public and private lives separate.
"The paparazzi are on a different level over there - they're outside the gym - but it's part of the job and you're told that," she admits.
"I love going to nice things but I'm a bit of recluse when I'm not working."
Nadia: Chasing The Dream starts tonight at 8pm on 3e.
