Nicola McLean (born 16 September 1981) is an English glamour model, television, and media personality. She was a contestant in I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! in 2008, and Celebrity Big Brother in 2012 and again in 2017.
Before becoming a reality star, McLean modelled for Page 3 of The Sun between September 1999 and July 2004, and the Daily Star from 2000 until 2006. McLean came fourth in The Sun poll for the "Best Page 3 Girl Of All Time", beating Samantha Fox, Jo Hicks, Leilani Dowding, and Jordan, whose rivalry with McLean has been widely publicised.
During her time as a glamour model, McLean often featured on tabloid showbiz gossip pages and latterly as a guest on television shows including The Weakest Link (Page 3 special), Richard & Judy, The Big Breakfast, Test The Nation (WAGs Special) and The Sexiest Girls In Britain.
McLean retired from modelling in 2006 after giving birth. She decided to return to modelling, TV work, and acting in early 2008, after being asked to feature as a main star in the Channel Five TV documentary Help! I've Got a High Maintenance Wife. Since then, she starred in the TV show WAGS' World… With Nicola McLean on Wedding TV and Channel Five's Generation Sex. She returned to glamour modelling assignments in February 2008 with the Daily Star, and she has also appeared on more lads' mags covers. McLean was a contestant in the November 2008 edition of ITV reality TV show I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!.
McLean entered the Celebrity Big Brother house for the second time in January 2017 as an all star housemate.
