I’m A Celeb star Nella Rose’s tragic family past after losing both parents: ‘Mum died in my arms’

Influencer and YouTube star Nella Rose has entered the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! jungle and has already squirmed at the first challenge.

Viewers tuned in on Sunday night to watch the return of the hit ITV series with a fresh batch of celebrities ready to take on a series of Bushtucker trails and camp conditions. Among them is YouTuber Nella Rose, 26, who faced snakes in the outback alongside Josie Gibson and Nigel Farage in their very first challenge.

The online star, who made it very clear she wasn’t a fan of snakes and was unable to retrieve any of the stars, started her fame journey on YouTube and now hosts Catfish UK. Nella, whose real name is Ornella Rose Hollela has also covered red carpet events and has fashion partnerships.

While at university in 2016, Nella launched her YouTube channel with vlogs, hair tutorials, and fashion hauls. But in the same year, tragically lost her mum and just a few years later in 2020, her dad passed away.

Sharing a heartfelt tribute to her dad on social media, Nella said: “Rest in Peace Daddy, watching you suffer for the past month has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life but at least you’re not in pain anymore. Gonna make you the proudest dad ever in the years to come because I know you’re still by [my] side every step of the way”.

On YouTube, Nella opened up about the sudden loss of her mum and said: “She died in my arms. It is the worst thing that has ever happened to me in my life.”

Nella was born in Belgium but moved to the UK when she was just seven. After launching her successful YouTube channel, Nella went on to star in the podcast Pressed on BBC Radio 1Xtra with Adeola Patronne and Mariam Musa.

The following year, she hosted the Brit Awards red carpet livestream alongside Munya Chawawa. This prompted her TV presenting and Nella took over from Julie Adenuga as the new host of MTV’s Catfish UK with Oobah Butler.

The 26 year old fashion influencer with her own line at Pretty Little Thing, is also known for hosting the Channel 4.0 series Tapped Out. She’s famous for her meme “Are you not embarrassed?” where she elongates the last word.

She says: “Are you not ashamed of yourself? Are you not embarrassed? This is really embarrassing.”
