Adele Roberts' girlfriend Kate Holderness has explained why the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here contestant has a picture of Jane McDonald as her luxury item in the jungle.

Tuesday night's episode of the reality show saw Adele clashed with campmate Roman Kemp over her framed photo of the former Loose Women star.

The Capital Breakfast host, 26, teased the BBC Radio 1 DJ, 40, over her unusual luxury item choice but things soon took a turn and became heated as Adele described Roman's remarks as showing "prejudice."

Roman chose a mug with a photo of his girlfriend Anne-Sophie Flury and his dog on it as his luxury, while ex-EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa decided to bring in an image of her two children, Mia, 15 months, and Ella, four.

But now Adele’s girlfriend, also a former Coronation Street star, has explained why she has the snap with her in the first place.

“Hahaaaa! Right, I can clear this up!" she wrote. "All the campmates have to have different luxury items, they're not allowed to double up on anything.

“So Adele's first choice of a family photo was already taken which she didn't mind because she knew there'd be campmates who'd love a pic of their children in there with them.

“Second choice, a pillow, was another goner as it's usually the most requested item. Pretty much everything she wanted after that was already taken too.' [sic]

With few choices left, the former Big Brother star decided to bring a piece of home to the Australian jungle to brighten up her day, particularly during the tense challenges.

Kate added: “The brief was ‘something to make you happy’ so she just chose something that never fails to cheer her up and something that reminds her of her Early Morning Radio 1 listeners.


“It's a bit of a long running feature on Adele's show, when they're having a bit of a slump & feeling down, a listener will request a ‘bit of Jane’ to get them through the day!

“I do have to say that most of her decisions are made at 2am when she gets up for her show, most things make perfect sense at that time”, she concluded.

Ahead of the row with Roman, Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway challenged the camp to name one of the singer’s tracks, adding: “Jane McDonald is looking over us. Can you think of a song of hers?”

Adele said: “I know her off Loose Women. I don’t know her actual songs but I know her from the cruising show when she does covers.

Roman and Rak-Su member Myles Stephenson laughed and both said: “No one knows what she does,” before Kate replied: “She’s a legend.”

Jane, 56, shot to fame on fly-on-the-wall TV series The Cruise.

Both Adele and Roman have since been voted by the public to take part in Wednesday's Bushtucker trial, which will see them eat creepy crawlies in exchange for a prize.

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight on ITV at 9pm.
