Jade, along with fellow housemates Jo O'Meara and Danielle Lloyd, caused international outcry as a result of claims that they were racist toward Shilpa Shetty.

Archive footage of the series showed presenter Davina McCall say: "There's a massive argument brewing in the house between Shilpa and Jade, so let's take a little peek."

A discussion between Jade, Danielle and Jo in which Danielle mocked Shilpa's accent was then shown.

Present-day Davina, who was being interviewed for the documentary, then said to camera: "I remember thinking this is a bad combo.

"Three British young girls all coming together and forming a gang basically. It started to be bullying."

More archive footage was then shown, which showed Jade shouting at Shilpa: "You may be a princess where you come from but here you are a housemate like everyone else. You are so far up your own a*** you can smell your own s***. You are f***ing ridiculous."
