I'm A Celeb's Nadine Coyle is terrified of a KOALA as hilarious video of Girls Aloud at Australia Zoo surfaces ahead of her stint in the jungle

 She will live in Australia's treacherous outback on this year's I'm A Celebrity

And it looks like it will take Nadine Coyle a while to acclimatise to the creepy-crawlies, wildlife and camping conditions judging by a throwback video from her Girls Aloud days. 

Appearing in the band's 2004 documentary Off The Record, the singer, 34, jumped a foot in the air when a koala stared at her at Australia Zoo.

She told the camera: 'I just dislike animals in cages. I'm really anti-animal. I just think they're so unpredictable.'

While Cheryl stroked a kangaroo, Nadine gasped: 'Look at her. She is off her head'.

And when the singer came face-to-face with a koala, the Irish beauty swore loudly: 'F*****g hell. Jesus I was far too close for that.'

Nadine touched down in Oz on Monday ahead of I'm A Celebrity's Sunday start date. 

And the See The Day hitmaker isn't looking forward to spending time apart from her five-year-old daughter Anaiya, and if she doesn't get voted out of the ITV talent show first then it'll be the longest time she has ever been away from the little one.

Nadine said: 'I have been away for 10 days for work before but not longer.

'I am dreading being away from everybody and not being able to phone and say, "How are you doing? How is my daughter?"

The Girls Aloud singer is hoping the Australian jungle-based show will push her 'so far' out of her 'comfort zone', and she is hoping to learn a lot about herself during the experience.

She added: 'I really hope that by doing this, it pushes me so far out the comfort zone and that I learn to be comfortable, feel relaxed and do the things that I didn't used to be afraid of.

'I've never boiled water on a fire, chopped firewood, slept outside - I do hope I learn stuff about me and it's the next phase.' 

Nadine will be living in the jungle alongside former footballer Ian Wright, Rak-Su singer Myles Stephenson, Radio 1 DJ Adele Roberts, comedian Andrew Maxwell, ex-EastEnders' actress Jacqueline Jossa, Capital Radio DJ Roman Kemp, Olympian and TV personality Caitlyn Jenner, former England rugby player James Haskell, and TV presenter Kate Garraway.
