I’M A Celebrity’s Adele Roberts has revealed she feels guilty over the way she treated Jade Goody in Big Brother.
The radio DJ shot to fame on series three of the Channel 4 show with Jade in 2002, and was known for getting into rows with her fellow housemates.

In one row, she mocked Jade, who died in 2009, for having a verruca on her foot and not knowing what it was, and now says she wishes she was a “nicer person” back then.
Adele, 40, said: “Looking back, I carried a lot of guilt about the way I acted in Big Brother and I feel like I let myself down and I could have been a much nicer person.
“I’d like to show a better side to myself this time. To both the campmates in there by treating them better but also to come out and have a positive experience not a negative one.”
Since leaving Big Brother she has gone on to forge a career in radio and presents BBC Radio 1’s Early Breakfast Show.
She is also a regular stand in for fellow radio DJ Alice Levine and Clara Amfo.
The Sun’s Biz TV exclusively revealed Adele was the final celebrity making up this year’s cast – but she is yet to comment on it.
A source said: “Adele’s really excited to go into the jungle. She missed her show on Thursday to fly out to Australia.

“Bosses reckon she’s going to make fantastic television and will really get stuck into camp life.”
It’s not known yet how much Adele is being paid for her stint in the jungle, but it is likely to be around 30 to 40,000 punds.
