I'm A Celebrity's Hollie says she won't let people get her down after MBE backlash

I'M A Celeb's Hollie Arnold has spoken about her memorable MBE mention on the first day of the show.

The 26-year-old introduced herself on the ITV programme using her full title – much to the amusement of viewers.

The Paralympic spoke to publications after leaving the Welsh castle and said of any negativity from viewers: "I don't know why they got so riled up.

"I don't like those comments but the real people know that I do not use MBE ever, ever!

"All I can say is I'm proud to have my MBE and it's such an honour.

"I won't let people like that get me down because that's who I am!"


The sportswoman said she was gutted that she hadn't been challenged more and said: "I would have loved to have done more trials. 

"Don't get me wrong, the trials that I did I was so happy to do them with the girls and obviously Shane and also the Castle Coin Challenge.

"But I would loved to have gone out there so people could get to know me more and see my determination and see my personality come out a bit more. 

"I am a bit sad I didn't get do more but I am still amazed and fascinated with the way that I handled my trials.

"I could've been a lot worse handling the bugs, critters and offal! It was horrible but I absolutely loved every minute of it."

Talking about any friction between Shane and AJ, she said: "I don't think I saw any tensions and I'm looking forward to watching this back.

"Generally, everybody got on so well, everyone was respectful and helpful, they chipped in. 

"I didn't feel like there was any major weird vibes. Of course there's always going to be some sort of tension but I never really felt that. 

"I was in that castle 24 hours a day and all I can say is these guys love each other. If there is a tiny bit of tension, it's normal.

"Everybody gets irritated, hungry and tired, it's normal!"

She wrote on her social media to her followers: "WOW, I’ve had the most INCREDIBLE time in the camp and I’m so lucky to have experienced and been part of I’m a Celebrity 2020.

"Completely heartbroken to have left the camp, but overwhelmed with all the support and lovely messages I’ve received over the last 2 weeks, I can’t thank you enough.

"Once the next few busy days are over, I can’t wait to keep you updated on my journey to Tokyo and beyond."
