Danielle Harold first found fame on EastEnders as Lola Pearce, but now she’s taking on another challenge by entering the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! jungle.
After leaving Albert Square in an emotional storyline this year, Danielle is making her way to the ITV show’s camp site as she goes up against other celebrity faces in the hope of being crowned Queen of the Jungle. The star is set to rough it with a whole host of well-known names such as This Morning’s Josie Gibson, politician Nigel Farage, YouTube’s Nella Rose, actress Jamie Lynn Spears and more.
The 31-year-old tends to keep her personal life to herself, despite being a household name but there has been much interest over her romantic life over the years. As she prepares for her stint in the jungle, Mirror takes a look at the star’s she’s been linked to…

Ahead of going to Australia, Danielle confirmed that she is currently single and is not looking for love. She has shut down rumours that she might find love in camp like other previous campmates like Katie Price and Peter Andre.
She said: “I am single and no I am not looking for love! It’s been a crazy, crazy year and so why not top it off with the craziest thing ever by doing this?! It’s definitely a shock to the system and I am both excited and nervous. This is so much tougher than anything or any role I have ever done before as it is all so new.”
Co-star romance rumours
Rumours swirled in the last year that Danielle and her on-screen husband Jamie Borthwick, who plays Jay Brown on the soap, could be an item in real life. She shared a photo with Jamie last year at the Broadcast Awards, which she captioned as “my love”.
This soon sparked speculation they could be more than friends. Jamie and Danielle spent a lot of time together during Danielle’s final few months on EastEnders, because of their on-screen relationship as Jay and Lola. Addressing relationship rumours between the pair, speaking to Fabulous magazine, Danielle said: “I’m just going to leave that one out there, because it’s soo funny. It makes me laugh so much, I’d hate to squash it!
“I always say Jamie is the husband I never wanted or asked for, but nonetheless got. Seriously though, there’s no one like that at the moment. But I’ve been so busy, it’s probably for the best. I’ve got no time, which is something to feel really lucky about.”
Bobby Brazier connection
Another co-star romance that was mentioned is Danielle’s closeness with Strictly Come Dancing’s Bobby Brazier. They were allegedly seen holding hands while arriving at the National Television Awards in October last year, which caused the public to think they must be an item.
A source at the time told The Mirror at the time: “Bobby and Danielle walked separately from the rest of the EastEnders cast at times. They certainly looked comfortable in each other’s company.”
Bobby and Danielle have gone on the share videos of each other online but appears that the pair are just sticking to being friends.
