Nicola McLean, 40, has claimed ITV will have already planned for Frankie Bridge to be this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! winner, as she suggested the show isn’t solely based on public votes.
Frankie has been supported by her Loose Women co-stars throughout her time on the show so far.
She joined the ITV programme back in December 2020 and has since become popular with viewers.
The 32-year-old has also gained support from her fans during her time on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.
Following Louise Minchin’s exit, she is the last standing female in camp.

Sharing her thoughts on the show, former contestant Nicola said she believes the show is a fix.
She told the Daily Star online: “ITV have already planned it. Did you not see all the Loose Women banners saying vote Frankie.
“If you go on Coleen’s [Nolan] Instagram and all of the Loose Women, they’ve got little nice banners with Loose Women in the corner and Frankie in her outfit with vote Frankie.
“I think they have done it because they like to do an ITV friendly person.”
The 2008 contestant went on to say last year’s winner Giovanna Fletcher “couldn’t have been any more ITV friendly”.
“So, I think they already have their winner figured out to be honest,” she added.
Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! for comment.
Nicola has also claimed this year’s contestants are “too pc”.

The mother-of-two said the likes of Frankie, Simon Gregson, Adam Woodyatt and Louise Minchin wouldn’t jeopardise their “squeaky clean” image on television.
“They are all so media trained,” she continued, adding she’d like to see more “loose cannons” on the show.
The mother-of-two went on to say it hadn’t been the same since it was moved from Australia to Wales, due to Covid-19.
Nicola took part on the show in 2008 and certainly wasn’t afraid to speak her mind.
Addressing a clash between Naugthy Boy and Frankie over rice this series, she said she would’ve made caused more of a drama in that situation.
She added: “Imagine if that was me, I would have been like, ‘don’t come at me about f***ing rice, you cook the f***ing rice if you want’.”
Nicola’s series was won by Joe Swash. Those in the running to win this year’s show are; Frankie, Simon, Adam, Matty Lee, Danny Miller and David Ginola.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
