'I'm A Celebrity' 2018: Kiosk Keith's Replacement, Kiosk Kev, Has Been Revealed

It's not just host Ant McPartlin who won't be back in the Aussie jungle for this year's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! - the stoic Kiosk Keith isn't going to be back Down Under either.

Yup, Keith is no more, and we've now got our first glimpse of his replacement - Kiosk Kev. You'll be pleased to know he looks as perpetually pissed off as Keith.

Kev will be manning the Outback Shack throughout this new series, which kicks off on Sunday, and a source from the show has assured people that they're going to love him.

Speaking to the Sun, an unnamed 'show insider' said: "Everyone on set is really pleased with the new Kiosk Kev character - his look has to be seen to be believed. Viewers will love him but the celebrities will be scared stiff! Like Kiosk Keith, Kev is a man of few words and doesn't speak."

The show's producers are said to be suitably satisfied that Kev will manage to provoke as much fear in the celebrities as his predecessor.

The source added: "Kev won't take any nonsense from the celebrities, and he looks very intimidating!

"The celebs from previous series who thought Kiosk Keith was scary won't know how lucky they were - Kiosk Kev is truly terrifying."

Kiosk Keith - played by Raymond Grant 52 - had appeared on screen since 2013 but had actually worked as a crew member on the show since 2002. He picked up no extra cash for his role on screen.

According to the Sun, Raymond was let go from the show after allegedly turning up to work drunk and 'behaving inappropriately' towards a female member of the team.

Unlike Raymond, Kev is an actor and has been cast for the role.

You can see Kiosk Kev in action from Sunday onwards as the celebs head into the jungle to chow down on kangaroo dicks and fall out over sleeping arrangements.

Celebrities including Harry Redknapp, Emily Atack, Nick Knowles and Anne Hegerty are all signed up for the show, with hosts Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby at the helm.

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! starts on Sunday 18 November at 9pm on ITV.
