‘Disappointed’ Amir Khan’s father gives his verdict on Strawberry-gate

Oooh, very harsh words

The scandal that rocked the I’m A Celebrity camp this week.

There’s really nothing worse than when a parent says they’re “not cross, just disappointed,” is there?

When you’ve been bold, you’d rather have the head taken off you than to get a muted response because then you know you’ve really messed up.

Unfortunately for Amir, that was the message from his dad on last night’s I’m A Celebrity – Extra Camp.

Reacting to Iain and Amir eating the strawberries and cream they’d won for the camp by themselves during the week, Shah Khan said he was surprised by his son’s crime.

“I’m disappointed really, to be honest with you, to find out what Amir did,” he said. “It’s not like him at all.

“All I can think about is that the jungle is getting to him. He must have been hungry, like all campmates. I was very surprised.”

Iain’s sister Jo meanwhile said that Iain coming clean about the whole thing was typical of him, claiming he’d “rather have confrontation than resentment.”

Last night’s episode also saw the first eviction from camp and we said goodbye to Shappi.

She told hosts Ant and Dec that she was pleased to be leaving as she’d spent enough time in the jungle.

“I’ve got a four year old and I ached for my children,” she said.

She also backed Becky Vardy to win the show.
