Reality TV

In August 2007 Nicola Mclean left Radio Clyde to begin a new career in telly. Nicola Mclean is to appear in a reality TV television programme but is keeping secret about what the reality show is called. Nicola McLean the nude and page 3 model is to star in the Channel 5 TV programme Help I’ve Got A High Maintenance Wife which will be broadcast sometime in 2008. This isn’t the Nicola McLean from Ellon but the model and TV star Nicola McLean from London.

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2008

Nicola McLean, the model who is the fiancee of Peterborough United footballer Tom Williams and the namesake of Nicola McLean from Ellon appeared in the ITV TV programme I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in 2008. It was shown on ITV1 on Sunday 16 November 08 for two weeks. She was joined by Hollywood actor George Takei (Mr Sulu from the original Star Trek television series and films and Kaito Nakamura from Heroes on BBC2, Esther Rantzen (That's Life and founder of Childline), presenter Dani Behr, MEP Robert Kilroy-Silk, tennis champion and sports commentator Martina Navratilova, politician and former Deputy Assistant Commissioner to London Metropolitan Police Brian Paddick, WAG model and personal trainer Carly Zucker, actor Joe Swash (Eastenders Mickey Miller) and Blue musician Simon Webbe. No sign of Big Bob despite the best efforts of Al Murray! I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2008 is series 8 of the telly program.

In the first few days of I'm a Celebrity get Me out of Here the celebrities endured heavy rain from a storm that swept Australia.

In the first episode of I'm a Celebrity get Me out of Here Nicola MacLean was chosen to take part in the Monday episode bushtucker trial.

Ladbrokes are giving betting odds on Nicola McLean being the winner of I'm a Celebrity get Me out of Here at 16/1.

Though Ladbrokes may want to change these odds on Nicola Mclean winning I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2008 when she won her first bushtucker trial. This was against Joe Swash during the I Scream Van trial. They had to eat bush tucker grub. Nicola Mclean ate three crocodile eyes, three live crickets, a croc foot, five silk worms and a kangaroo testes. Joe Swash had to eat two scorpions, three live cockroaches, a witchetty grub, a croc penis and testicles through he refused to eat a bush fowl foot. With this bushtucker trial win Nicola McLean won kangaroo steak and Australian vegetables for her Away Team Camp.

Nicola McLean showed her compassionate side when she helped to comfort Esther Rantzen who was missing her family and grieving for her husband. Esther affectionately called Nicola Nic though Robert Kilroy-Silk called her Nicole. Nicola McLean felt nude without her make up and described her beauty techniques to the other contestants.

In the head to head celebrity challenge Nicola was competing against Dani Behr and went on to win the chest treat which was a cheese platter for her team. Dani and Nicola had to climb down a rope that was counter weighted with a heavy log.

Flooding from heavy rain meant that the away camp had to go and live with the home camp so that all the celebrities lived together. They are to be joined by two surprise celebs who are being held hostage in a cage awaiting the celebrities to free them.

Two new celebrities were introduced to the jungle camp but on the way were caught in nets and locked into prison cells. They were then ransomed for release if the celebs in the camp gave up their luxury items. The vote was not to do so and Nicola McLean got to keep her mascara. The new celebs, Timmy Mallet and Dollar singer David Van Day, were released the next morning.

Nicola realised that it was the first birthday of her boobs and to celebrate the boob job anniversary the celebrities sang Happy Birthday to her breasts which were nicknamed Pinky and Perky!

Several days into I'm a Celebrity get Me out of Here the sun finally cam out and whilst Brian Paddock showered in the nude the other celebrities kept their clothes on and Nicola McLean was able to get her pink bikini out. The other ladies soon followed and wore their bikinis.

During the jungle quiz test Nicola won and with Carly Zucker and Brian Paddick was treated to a jungle living room with comfortable chairs and sofa, a TV to watch an England football match, pizza and beer.

During the viewer phone in Nicola was voted to perform the Cavern of Calamity. This involved Nicola entering a totally dark cave filled with beasties like rats and creepy crawlies like spiders and huge cob webs which were all her major fears. Nicola bravely won three stars to swap for three meals for the camp. Later Nicola McLean took part in a jungle bush battle with Timmy Mallet and Robert Kilroy Silk where they were placed in a tank of smelly gunk and the person who stayed the longest won immunity from being voted off the first eviction voting of I'm a Celebrity get Me out of Here. Timmy Mallet won.

In another Bush Battle Nicola took part in the Night Living Bed which involved contestants lying down in a wooden coffin like box with a lid. Creepy crawlies were then added to the box. Due to her claustrophobia Nicola only lasted a few seconds. The winner of this Bush battle was Esther Rantzen.

Nicola underwent another chest challenge, this time with Joe Walsh. They had to undo knots during which a leech attached itself to her boobs. They won the challenge and were awarded with a jar of coffee and cream.

During her time in the jungle Nicola McLean took part in two more bush tucker trials. One of these involved using the controls of a large downfall type game to guide balls to two more celebrities. In a celebrity chest challenge with David Van Day they won a candy bra which was shared with the other celebs to eat the sweeties. Nicola kept her white polka dot bikini.

Nicola found a new friend in the jungle when a tic attached itself to her neck.

To liven up life in the camp Nicola McLean showed the other celebrities how to pose as a page 3 model with her boobs stuck out, tummy tucked in and bum stuck out. She then took Polaroid photos of George Takei striking a sexy pose!

Sadly Nicola McLean was voted off I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here on Tuesday 2 December 2008. She was the seventh voted off. She was met at the bridge by her agent Chrissy Johnstone and her boyfriend Dane Bowers because her fiancé and son could not come to Australia.

In the Coming Out party programme Nicola McLean nude was no more when she was able to wear her favourite clothes and make up rather than jungle boots, shorts and red top. She admitted that she was successful in smuggling some make up into the camp. On her return to the six star hotel Nicola stopped off at McDonalds for a vanilla milk shake and hash brown. At the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here hotel she tucked into chocolate and ice cream before going to a lingerie photo shoot.

Help! I've Got A High Maintenance Wife

The other Nicola McLean has a boyfriend called Tommy Williams who plays football for Peterborough. WAG (Wives and Girlfriends) Nicola McLean stars in the television programme Help! I've Got A High Maintenance Wife on Channel Five which was first broadcast on Thursday 24 January 2008 at 10pm.

Help! I've Got A High Maintenance Wife showed the efforts model Nicola McLean takes to always look her best for Tommy Williams. This includes going to bed wearing her make up and getting up first to reapply her make up before Tommy sees her in their Wexham home in Buckinghamshire where they live with their son Rocky.

Proving that Nicola McLean is high maintenance viewers saw her filmed whilst buying a handbag - for £300 and shoes for a mere £1000.

During the TV programme Help! I've Got A High Maintenance Wife viewers saw Nicola McLean delaying a driving lesson until she could make sure her acrylic nails were perfect: which could go some way to explain why Nicola has failed her driving test many times!

Beautiful Nicola McLean confessed to spending about three hours a day on her personal appearance which ranges from soaking in the bath, exfoliating, shaving and topping up her tan. Then Nicola will apply her nail polish and make up before choosing a gorgeous outfit to wear. That's all before she goes to the beauty saloon to spend more time looking bonnie.

Viewers of Help! I've Got A High Maintenance Wife saw Nicola MacLean say that she would never dream of changing a light bulb nor ordering a take away meal - those are Tommy's jobs.

In the morning of the programme's broadcast UK model Nicola McLean appeared on the Channel 5 chat show The Wright Stuff where she talked about her high maintenance life and the panellists and guests talked about her lifestyle. Also featured in the documentary Help! I've Got A High Maintenance Wife is a wife who is a professional bodybuilder and looks after her muscled body and a wife who is sure that she is about to die.

Other interesting real life stories in the Channel 5 Program Help! I've Got A High Maintenance Wife included:

The story of Neil from Berwick Upon Tweed whose wife, Donna, was a bodybuilder and weightlifter. Donna was competing for several bodybuilding competition and husband Neil and their children Tom and his brother would help her and put up with her mood swings and diet. Help! I've Got A High Maintenance Wife showed Neil having to spend hours driving to body building competitions and then apply tanning agents to her skin which would take several hours.

The life of Peter from Cheshire whose wife Hayley Martin developed OCPD (Obsessive compulsive personality disorder) after her beautiful Golden Retriever dog died. Hayley would check and recheck doors and had feeding habits for her other dogs and horses, sometimes taking up to four hours to feed them and check their health. She had to have a quite house so that her routines would not be disturbed otherwise she had to start again. This meant her husband Peter could not use the telephone or have the sound on the television.

Steve from Carlisle who has to cope with his wife, Karen Armstrong, who has a fear of dying and a strong phobia of illnesses and her own death. Karen would think any symptom was a sign of a major illness or disease like a heart attack. She would visit her doctor up to six times a week and event park outside the surgery to feel safe. Help! I've Got A High Maintenance Wife introduced Karen Armstrong to Ian Banyard, a neurolinguist and confidence coach. Ian Banyard used neuro linguistic programming and techniques from his confidence clinic to boost Karen's self esteem and identify the reasons for her behaviour. This ended in a visit to an Indian restaurant where she was able to overcome her fear of eating spicy food causing her to die. She safely enjoyed a chicken korma with her husband and Ian.

As a result of appearing on Help I'm A High Maintenance Wife and her recent Daily Star lingerie photos page 3 favourite Nicola MacLean has been tempted back into the topless studio for the first time since 2005. The last time Nicola MacLean appeared topless she was a size D cup. For this semi nude photo of Nicola MacLean she will be a G cup after a recent boob job. In that February edition of the Daily Star Nicola Mclean wore a beautiful white basque with matching white stockings in one photo and a pair of black fishnet hold ups in another picture.
The topless photos of Nicola McLean appeared in the 22 February 2008 edition of the Daily Star newspaper.

Wags World

Following on from her success on Help! I've Got A High Maintenance Wife Nicola McLean featured in the Wedding Channel on the programme Wags World. Previous Wives and Girlfriends on Wags World include Danielle Lloyd and it is presented by a WAG: Lizzie Cundy.


The page 3 model Nicola McLean from England often appears in daily newspapers such as The Sun and The Daily Star. Nicola McLean first modelled for The Daily Star when she was 16 years old. For example on the 5 February 2008 Nicola McLean was featured in The Daily Star along with a stunning photo of Nicola McLean in her underwear. She talked about her new online shop and store which Nicola McLean runs with Chrissy Johnston who is a celebrity agent and formerly a magazine Editor. Together Nicola McLean and Chrissy Johnston aim to bring their customers a range of fashionable lingerie, watches, footwear, lingerie, beachwear, fancy dress and even costumes for dogs like the doggie French maid outfit or the doggie school outfit through ShowBizStyle. AboutAberdeen love the doggie pirate costume but much prefer the celebrity style section which has the latest fashion worn by stars like Paris Hilton, Victoria Beckham, Amy Winehouse, Carmen Electra and Pamela Anderson at reasonable prices and often at a discount. Many are specially imported from America.

Big Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile

The English model Nicola McLean joined her fellow WAGs in January 2008 to launch the Big Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile. This charity event will take place in March 08. Joining Nicola McLean were Alex Best, Jadene Bircham, Jude Cisse, Melissa Johnson and Lizzie Cundy. These sporting beauties were dressed in football shirts, shorts and trainers to launch information about the Big Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile. Other famous names who are raising funds and awareness of the Big Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile include the pop group, The Spice Girls, TV presenter Tess Daly, Big Brother host Davina McCall and British singer Leona Lewis. People throughout the UK can help raise funds for Sport Relief by pledging to run or walk 1, 3 or 6 miles. Events can be seen on BBC 1 on Sunday 16 March in a special telly programme called The Sport Relief Mile.

Wouldn't it be great to see former Miss Scotland and Miss UK Nicola Mclean on a similar reality TV programme or even on I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here on ITV with Ant and Dec or Celebrity Big Brother on Channel 4 but definitely not Castaway on BBC 1! There is a new reality TV programme in the autumn of 2008 on ITV1 called Coleen's Real Women hosted by WAG (wives and girlfriends of footballers) Colleen McLoughlin whose boyfriend is Wayne Rooney. She helps ordinary women to gain advertising commercials on television and other high profile modelling jobs. Could this be the programme Nicola Mclean is to star in? Whichever reality TV programme that Nicola Mclean is to appear on we at aboutaberdeen wish her the very best in her new television career.

I keep missing the ITV autumn schedule 2007 advert but from the few glimpses I have seen of it, and the commercial does go rather fast, I am sure I have seen Nicola Mclean on the opening of the ad about to kiss a handsome man.

Ant and Dec are currently filming Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway on ITV until mid October 2007 so if Nicola Maclean is on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here then we may see Nicola on the telly late October early November.

Rumoured celebrities for I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2007 are model and actress Paris Hilton, the singer from Right Said Fred Richard Fairbass, Katie Hopkins who was in another reality TV programme (The Apprentice) and the former Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren who was also in another reality television programme filmed here in Aberdeenshire which is to be screened in Autumn 2007 called Baron of Troup. Here's hoping Nicola McLean will be added to the list!

Also rumoured to be joining the cast of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2007 is Hollyoaks actress Gemma Atkinson
