I'm A Celeb contestant already caught smuggling contraband into castle
A Naughty Boy indeed
Music producer and I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Here star Naughty Boy has admitted to smuggling spices into camp.
Saffron and sage are hardly traditional smugglers' fare, but in the Welsh I'm A Celebrity camp, spices are gold dust - as there's minimal food and most of it tastes bland. Most basic meals are rice and beans.
"Before I left, I grinded some spices that could make rice and beans actually taste a bit nice," Naughty Boy, real name Shahid Khan, confessed during a visit to the 'Bush Telegraph' on the show.
"So what I did, I put it in my sock. There's cumin seeds, cloves, turmeric, coriander seeds. If you could smell this. Wow. And black peppercorns."
However, show bosses took Khan's secret stash away after the producer fessed up about his haul. "I asked them if it was okay if I used a bit because we're suffering enough as it is and they confiscated it," he told campmates.
He'd previously explained to them that he'd crushed the spices and put them in cling film in his sock to get them past show producers.
Fellow campmate Richard Madeley from Good Morning Britain was impressed with Naughty Boy's effort. "Naughty Boy had really lived up to his name," he joked from the camp.
Madeley even teased that this "is not going to be the last time the rules are bent" as the campmates begin their experience, which involves sleeping in torrid conditions and taking on gross tasks for up to three weeks for the contestants that make it to the finale.
There is a new area some unfortunate campmates will get locked up in this year called The Clink. Modelled on a prison, campmates put in there will have to sleep on the floor without a mattress.
Joining Naughty Boy and Madeley in camp this year are former footballer David Ginola, former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips, Olympic gold medalist Matty Lee and former Saturdays member Frankie Bridge.
