JAMIE LOMAS OPENS UP ABOUT THE DEATH OF HIS FRIEND WHILE IN THE JUNGLE

He faced some of his biggest fears during I'm A Celebrity but Jamie was shocked to learn of the death of a close friend when he finished runner-up on the show.

'One of my close friends past away the day I went into the jungle,' Jamie told the Loose Women. 'They tried to contact me in the jungle, but because he wasn’t immediate family they can’t let you know. It’s his funeral on Wednesday, Gary Lloyd, he’s a top, top guy.'

Jamie's friend Gary, who was Bury FC football agent, died at home after falling down the stairs.

'I found out when I came out of the jungle and they had this Whatsapp group called Gary Lloyd Tribute and he’s a bit of a windup, so I thought, "Oh it’s a just a windup",' Jamie explained. 'Anyway these messages kept coming through and I went on it and it was heartbreaking, and I just started reading it and it just dawn upon me what had happened.
It was just horrible.'

Nadiya, who has three children, explained she believes it started from as young as aged seven and talked about how difficult it can be to simply get out of bed.

'I'm scared. When you suffer with something like a panic disorder, there is no answer,' Nadiya said. 'It's scary when you think you don't want to listen to your kids' voices. I get through it with my husband.'

Nadiya went on to say when her disorder is at its worst, her husband Abdal will knock on the closed bedroom door and leave a cup of tea outside to motivate her to get of bed.

Rebekah Vardy on being labelled a bully on I'm A Celebrity: 'It was the most horrific experience'

REBEKAH VARDY SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT OVER 'BULLYING' CLAIMS AFTER I'M A CELEBRITY

After joining the panel as a guest Loose Woman, Rebekah opened up about her I'm A Celebrity experience and being labelled a 'bully'.

'It was the most horrific experience having my dad and my oldest daughter next to me and being told what had been portrayed in the media and social media, it was heartbreaking,' she told Andrea, Nadia and Kaye.

Becky was with her dad and eldest daughter Megan when she was told about the backlash.

'I spoke to Megs, she saw my initial reaction in the car, and I said, "This is what mummy's been made out look like and you know that is not true",' Becky said. 'She said, "You're not what everyone is making you out to be." I think it was good for her to see that side of things and that everything that is portrayed is not always true.'

Becky explained she'd broken down in floods of tears after being told she had been accused of 'bullying', 'I struggled to deal with it and I still do now.'

But Becky also said there are no hard feelings between her and comedian Iain Lee.

'Iain and I had so many deep conversations and we’ve since spoken, there’s no hard feelings between us. He's put the record straight today by saying there was no bullying,' Becky said.

Eden Blackman dishes out love advice to Gemma Collins: 'She's got to forget about Arg - they’re not in love!'

DATING EXPERT EDEN BLACKMAN DISHES OUT SOME LOVE ADVICE TO GEMMA COLLINS

He's the relationship expert to the stars and Eden was on hand to give out some festive love advice on the show.

But Eden also revealed he's got his work cut out on Celebs Go Dating when it comes to helping TOWIE star Gemma Collins.

'What we need to do with Gemma is that we need to forget her previous relationships because she’s very much stuck in that,' he explained. 'Obviously we’ve got Arg who was on series three, so we need to make a break from them. Because they’re friends, they love each other but they’re not in love and it’s that constant referral back to Arg.'

'It’s an interesting one as the two series are butting each other,' Eden added. 'We’ve got the TOWIE Christmas special coming out in the next couple of weeks. We have to tell her that she’s got to forget about that. We’ve got to explain to her that this is six years that this is going on.'

'It’s self-reflective. If you start to think like that you sort of think "is it me?",' Eden said. 'Gemma’s great, she absolutely keeps us on our toes as you can imagine. But we’re really enjoying having her there, it’s a challenge. But all good work is a challenging.'

Michael Ball and Alfie Boe join the Loose Women to talk about their bromance and share a surprising diet tip

MICHAEL BALL AND ALFIE BOE TALK DIETS AND DUETS

After a hilarious entrance onto the show, musical legends Michael and Alfie joined Andrea, Denise, Jane and Nadia to talk about their album Together Again, charity single Bring Me Sunshine and diets.

'We've know each other 11 years. We did a very bad musical and the only redeeming feature was becoming mate,' Michael said. 'We don't see each other socially - I have a life,' Alfie added with a laugh.

And Michael talked about losing weight saying, 'I got myself health. And I've really enjoyed it. The energy on stage is great. There was moment when we were doing some summer gigs and we have enormous screens either side of the stage and I looked up and thought, "I'm not happy with the way that looks." It creeps up on you and you look at the lifestyle. I went to see [nutritionist] Amelia Freer. It's common sense - not drinking. The best tip was five hours between every meal. I'll allow myself a nice red on Christmas day.'

Michael and Alfie also played a fun game called Ball or Boe? Watch the video to see the full chat and who win our special quiz!
