Top model Roz Purcell has admitted that she isn't following Nadia's adventures in the I'm A Celebrity jungle.

Nadia Forde has spent the last two weeks frolicking in the Australian jungle and while Roz hasn't watched the show, she said she's heard her fellow model is doing well.

"I haven't been watching Nadia but that's just because I'm usually in bed by the time it's on - to be honest I don't really get to watch TV.

"I've never even seen an episode of Love/Hate," she told the Diary.

"I'm definitely cheering her on though, I want her to do really well. My sister Rachel has been watching it and she said that Nadia is getting on really well and that everyone in the camp seems to like her.

"You know when someone who's Irish is in there, you want them to do well and it's good that she's doing Ireland proud," she continued.

"She's showing that Irish people are friendly and Rachel was saying that she seems like the most genuine in the camp and in comparison to the other girls she seems very relaxed - she's not being overly flirty with the guys, she's playing it cool," she added.

Roz may not be spending her nights watching reality TV but she spends them baking instead and shares her recipes on her food blog, Natural Born Feeder.

"The blog is going really well. I still just think of it as a bit of fun. I put up recipes that I think people might like - I don't put up everything because half the time I've eaten it and I'm like 'I never took a photo of it', but it's just really good fun," she gushed.

"When someone mails me or writes a comment saying 'I love your blog' it actually makes me really happy. It's more like documenting my years in the kitchen and what I eat," she added.

The Andrea Roche model is known for her love of fitness and admits that baking has become her new therapy.


"At the moment with this season of work it's just so busy and all I want to do is bake," she admits.

"For me the gym and everything used to be my therapy and I'd go there to beat the stress, but now I find baking so therapeutic.

"Sometimes if I go away for the weekend, I just want to bake when I get back after having everything cooked for me.

"Spending the day baking is one of my favourite things to do. A lot of people might not understand that but you're not thinking about anything else and you're creating something. For me, it's been my saviour this year," she added.
