Nadine Coyle left her I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! campmates and viewers in shock when she reminisced on her relationship with Jesse Metcalfe during Thursday's episode of the hit ITV show.

The 34 year old told Jacqueline Jossa and Adele Roberts of Jeese, 40: "My second boyfriend was an actor and I was completely… I had fancied him from TV, I was like 'Oh my God, he is so gorgeous.'

"I was doing an interview, you know one of those 'Who do you fancy?' things, and I was like, 'The gardener from Desperate Housewives'.

"So then I went out and I met him out, he was lovely, we had a great night, you know when you're just like… it was everything was right.

"He was there and he came over to me straight away and he was like, 'Oh my God, you smell amazing, what's that accent?' and I was like, I'm in love!

"Then I went to go to the bathroom and I walked into the bathroom and he pulled me from behind the waist and pulled me back, and he was like, 'You're going into the mens',' and I was like, 'No I'm not, it's the ladies',' and he said, 'I just wanted to say something to you.'

Take a look back at Nadine and Jesse's romance below…

When did Nadine and Jesse meet?

Former Girls Aloud singer Nadine started dating the Desperate Housewives actor in February 2006, and they were soon spotted on a date in Sydney, Australia.

A friend of Jesse's said at the time: "He was immediately taken with Nadine when he saw her. She's a very pretty girl and he also loved her Irish accent.

"They went on a date on Friday and got on brilliantly. There is an incredible chemistry between them and they're already planning their next date," the friend continued to tell Sunday Mirror.

A source added to the publication: "Fans were going up to Jesse and Nadine and asking for photos and autographs of the pair of them.

"Although they were accommodating, it was obvious they only had eyes for each other. They looked absolutely smitten.

Nadine and Jesse's first brief split

Nadine and Jesse split for a short while during their first year of dating, but soon reconciled and looked stronger than ever in 2007.

Jesse exclusively told OK! magazine at the time: "Sometimes you gave a bump in the road.

"A relationship is a work in progress, learning about each other and understanding each other.

"Sometimes you have disagreements, but that was a minor one and it was a temporary break."

Nadine added: "It wasn't really a split, it was blown out of proportion. People have arguments, it's a fact, and sometimes after a row you just want to be left alone.

"But it wasn't as dramatic as people made it out to be. I mean, we were talking all the way through and talking about the fact that everyone was talking about us splitting up!"

Did Nadine and Jesse get married?

It was widely reported that Jesse had proposed to Nadine, but the couple continuously laughed off the rumours.

However, Nadine did speak about her dream wedding to Jesse in 2007, telling OK! magazine: "I don't have an idea for the perfect wedding or the perfect dress.

"I'm just sure that when the time comes it'll be all right. The actual wedding day is not that important.

"I mean, you can have ten wedding days, and throw parties for a week solidly, but it's all about making sure you're with the right person."

When did Nadine and Jesse split?

Nadine broke off her and Jesse's relationship later in 2007 after he entered rehab for alcohol addiction.

But in 2008, she admitted she felt some regret over the end of their romance.

She told Now magazine: "He had a horrible time going to rehab and it was all too much for me.

"I blocked it out of my life and decided not to be a part of it and that's wrong. That's not something you should do if you love somebody."

Who have Nadine and Jesse dated since?

Nadine moved on with American football player Jason Bell in 2008, but they split in 2010.

They reunited in 2013, with Nadine announcing she was expecting their first child that August.

She gave birth to their daughter, Anaiya, in early 2014, but the pair split in summer 2019.

A source told The Sun Online: "Although Nadine and Jason were never married, they lived as a close family unit and remain good friends as they co-parent their young daughter.
