David Ginola is currently shivering in the I’m A Celeb palace — but his surprising partner is getting wet.
Model Maeva Denat, 32, is shooting in St Tropez while she tackles the great outdoors in Wales.
She’s modeling for the clothing brand Sandcochella in the south of France – where both she and 54-year-old David come from.
Maewa, who has a daughter with David who was born in 2018, shared a countdown to the debut of I’m A Celebrity on her Instagram Story yesterday.
He and the former Newcastle star became together after separating from Coraline’s wife of 25 years, whom he married in 1991.
Exes share two children. Their 27-year-old son Andrea – who lives in London – followed in his father’s footsteps and entered the world of sports while working as a football agent.
23-year-old French model Carla graduated from Regent’s University in 2016 with a degree in European Business.
The dashing David played over 500 games as a professional footballer, starting his club career at Toulon before moving to Paris Saint-Germain, Newcastle, Tottenham and Aston Villa.
He joined the I’m A Celebrity in Wales last night in a blaze – and wound up on the losing team.
This means he is forced to live with Richard Madley, Arlene Phillips, Naughty Boy and Danny Miller in The Clink, a rudimentary camp.
Within minutes of arriving, Danny smashes the shower and Richard fails to light the fire, resulting in David leading it to spark.
Some fans assumed he had a fall out with former Strictly judge Arlene — after just one episode.

The pair were put together for the first challenge and it wasn’t long until the former footballer got a little annoyed with the famous choreographer.
At one point, 78-year-old Arlene declared: “The Red Team doesn’t have a cha-cha-chance with me” seeing David completely stunned.
One person wrote: “David and Arlene are beef eaters, I’m calling it.”
Another tweeted: “Just put it there, but I guess when Arlene and David start chowing down on each other, they’re going to get hungry and get angry.”
