Model admits she made herself sick after argument

Nicola McLean had Celebrity Big Brother viewers and the tabloid media turn against her after she argued on TV with the show’s eventual winner Denise Welch.

‘It kicked off because Denise pulled Karissa Shannon‘s pants down as we were dancing and, as it upset Karissa so much, I stood up for her,’ explains Nicola, 30.

‘I love Denise and admire her on Loose Women but it really got to me that she seemed to think because we’ve posed in magazines we wouldn’t mind showing our bodies in the house.

‘I’ve always had to deal with people’s opinions about me being a Page 3 girl – a job I had to do to survive after growing up extremely poor and with no qualifications – but this time, the stress of such a heated argument triggered my bulimia.

‘My eating disorder’s been well documented in the past but, although I thought I’d beaten it, I actually made myself sick in the house that night. 

‘I felt so desperately upset – it was my only way of coping. The rest of the housemates thought I was just crying in the toilet.’
