I'm A Celebrity's Adele Roberts behind one of most explosive fights in Big Brother history

She clashed with Jade Goody a number of times

Radio DJ Adele Roberts is among the famous faces in the jungle for this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

While she's best known as a presenter on BBC Radio 1, Adele rose to fame as a contestant on series three of Big Brother.

During her time in the house, she found herself embroiled in one of the show's most explosive fights - with none other than late reality star Jade Goody.

In the series that also gave us This Morning favourite Alison Hammond and DJ Kate Lawler, Adele and Jade clashed on a number of occasions.

But perhaps most memorably, the pair locked horns after Jade found she had a verruca on her foot.

Jade took issue with the way Adele reacted and famously got upset that her housemate allegedly suggested she was "minging".

When Adele confronted Jade, their housemate Alex Sibley urged her to be more tactful but Adele hit back: "No, I won't be because she's saying I said stuff I didn't say.

"No, I did not say 'urgh' and at the end of the day, it was someone else who told you to wear flip-flops, not me. Stop [bleeping] making up lies."

The argument escalated and Adele shouted: "No Jade, don't [bleeping] start, I swear."

They got up in each others' faces and the row turned into a full-on shouting match, as Adele continued: "Jade, you've got fungus on your skin, that is it. You're drunk! You're the one talking [bleep]. [Bleep] off."

Ahead of her stint in the jungle, Adele reflected on her time in the Big Brother house and admitted feeling "guilt" over the way she behaved.

She opened up about feeling like she "let herself down" and said she felt she "could have been a much nicer person".

I realised that words are really powerful and you should try and build people up.

As reported by the Mirror, Adele said: "Looking back, I carried a lot of guilt about the way I acted in Big Brother and I feel like I let myself down and I could have been a much nicer person.

"I just think I judged people when I shouldn't have, I should have tried to get to know them a bit more and I think I probably hurt people when I didn't realise when I was in there.

"It was only because I've come out that I realised that words are really powerful and you should try and build people up. I just let the game get to me and got too negative and I just won't do that again this time."

Jade was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2008 and lost her battle with the disease on March 22, 2009.

Elsewhere in the interview, Adele said that by appearing on I'm A Celeb, she would like to "show a better side" to herself by treating her campmates well and having a "positive experience".

And she's been getting on fine with her fellow campmates, although Tuesday's (19.11.19) episode saw her get into a brief argument with DJ Roman Kemp over the framed photo of Loose Women star Jane McDonald she brought into the camp for inspiration.
