I'M A Celebrity’s Nella Rose suffered a tragic loss as a teenager when her mum died in her arms.
The YouTube star bravely revealed her secret heartache to fans online – but refuses to cry about it on camera.
She's entering the jungle with famous faces including Nigel Farage, Jamie Lynn and Josie Gibson.
Speaking on her YouTube channel, Nella Rose said: "Literally not even a month, a couple of weeks, after I turned 19 my mum passed away and it was something that you don’t expect.
"You don’t plan, it just happened.
"I didn’t wake up that day and think ‘oh my mum is going to pass away’.

"I didn’t want this to be my life," Nella said in a video five years ago.
"I wanted to live with my mum until I was 25. I was forced to let go of that.
"All my friends when they left Uni they got to go back to their parents and get cooked meals, save so much money… I had to basically be alone for the rest of my life until I get married.
"Me, my mum and my brother used to be the three musketeers. Sometimes life is so unfair."
