Nella Rose had a lonely exit from I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! as she was not met by any family or friends after leaving the jungle

The YouTuber, 26,  became the second star to be voted off the ITV show on Monday, after receiving the least amount of viewer votes.

While celebrities are normally greeted by their loved ones when they cross the bridge out of the jungle, Nella was not met by anyone.

After leaving, the vlogger made her way to the nearby Marriot Hotel on the Gold Coast where eliminated contestants stay until the final.

In video footage of her arrival, the star was seen greeting Frankie Dettori and the loved ones of the other celebrity contestants.

Nella's family members did watch her on the show and were convinced that her 'Congolese spirit' would see her win.

A relative said she is from a close-knit family and told of their sadness that she didn't reach out and ask them for help when her mother died suddenly in her arms – and she was evicted from the family home.

Nella and her brother were given just 30 days to get out of the north London flat they shared with their mother after she passed away. 

The social media star - who rose to fame making TikTok videos, was only 19 and living in crowded university halls with nowhere else to go.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, the relative recently said: 'All of Nella's siblings and other members of her family, wherever they are in the world, are watching her in the jungle – and praying that she wins. We are very proud of her achievements, it's amazing what she's done. She is showing the fighting spirit of the Congolese people and we are all with her.

'There is a lot of love for her as we are a caring Congolese family even though we live in different countries. She also has an aunt, her mother's sister, who lives in London. And her father came from a very large, well to do family. There are lots of them in the Congo and others spread across Europe. She could have turned to anyone of us for help.'

Nella revealed further family heartache in the jungle when she exploded at Fred Siriex for his seemingly innocent joke that he was 'old enough to be her father' – hours after she had opened up to campmates about how her father too had been tragically taken from her.

She was born Nella Rose Hollela in Belgium and has only spoken briefly in the past about the death of her father, Paul Hollela in May 2020 – but never revealed that he died in Belgium in his mid-60s after contracting Covid and had spent three months in a Brussels hospital fighting the virus.

Her mother Eseho Omolongo died of a stroke in August 2016 aged 46 at Northwick Park Hospital, north-west London, surrounded by Nella and her older brother Albert, 28.

Her outburst at Fred Siriex following his comment clearly touched a nerve and underlined the close relationship she enjoyed with her father and pain she still feels following his death, despite his tumultuous personal past.

And her run-in with Nigel Farage, when she told him he was 'hated' by many people, leading to viewer opinion being deeply divided over her behaviour was no doubt driven by her father's journey as an immigrant who arrived on European shores in the mid-1970s.

Mr Hollela left his home in the Wembo-Nyama district of central Congo and settled in Paris, where he met a local woman of Congolese descent.

His first child and Nella's eldest half-sister Omoyi Ly was born in the city and still lives there and is now in her late 40s.

She still maintains contact with Nella and other members of the family with the half-siblings regularly meeting over the years.

While in Paris, Mr Hollela studied for a PhD in agriculture and was then working as an agricultural engineer. But following the break-up of his relationship with Omoyi's mother, he moved to Brussels in the mid-1980s.

Once in the Belgium capital, the flamboyant Mr Hollela enjoyed a colourful personal life and was considered something of a playboy character while running a women's boutique in central Brussels that
