Dublin babe Nadia Forde was upset to see her first friend in the jungle leave when a family tragedy forced the early departure of Craig Charles.

Coronation Street actor Craig received the devastating news that his older brother Dean had died suddenly following a heart attack.

On hearing of the tragedy, he told his celebrity campmates: “I’m out of here guys.”

Model Nadia embraced the star as he said his goodbyes.

“He held my hand through some tough moments in the first few days so it’s sad that he’s not going to be around, I thought I’d be out of here before him,” an emotional Nadia said. “I’ll miss him.”

The soap star was the second celebrity to leave the camp in the opening days of the series. 

The Only Way is Essex star Gemma Collins bowed out after only three days in the wild because she couldn’t take it any more.

Last year’s King of the Jungle, former Westlife singer Kian Egan, was critical of the reality star’s hasty departure.

“I personally feel that three days – it’s not really that hard,” he said.

Last night saw things heating up when the show’s trio of beauties showed off their figures in skimpy swimwear.

Nadia is no stranger to a bikini thanks to her modelling career and looked comfortable despite her jungle surrounds in a red number.

The 25-year-old managed to escape the first of the new Dingo Dollar challenges and also the dreaded Bushtucker Trial last night.

Playboy bunny Kendra and sports star Jimmy were forced to eat cow’s lips and fish eyes as part of the latest grotesque menu.

Bubbly Nadia was, however, charged with the task of announcing who was up for the Money for Old Rope challenge, and was relieved that it was Melanie Sykes and Michael Buerk who had to answer questions about their camp mates.

Meanwhile, X-Factor contestant Jake Quickendon and former politician Edwina Currie have joined the jungle crew.
