Praise: The star was praised by fans for her positive and inspiring attitude
The radio presenter said: ‘One of my main things coming in here, and I said it to my mum and the guy I’m seeing, “I think people are going to think I’m a catfish. I’m not going to look like my Insta.”
She went on: ‘Insta is your best angles, you’ve got sick lighting, you’ve got make-up on. I don’t edit my face, but obviously I’ll put like… if I’ve got spots I hide it, with my birthmark I cover it with make-up.’
Naughty Boy then sweetly told her: ‘I think people are going to admire you for it.’
This comes as she became the third celebrity to bid farewell to Gwrych Castle after falling victim to the public vote during Tuesday’s episode.
Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly arrived in camp and told the celebrities that Snoochie and Naughty Boy had received the fewest public votes before revealing the radio presenter would be sent home.
Remaining positive, Snoochie said: ‘It’s alright, it’s all good. I met so many great people that I never would have met in my everyday life and you become such close friends really quickly.’
