I’m A Celeb’s Naughty Boy Is Getting ‘Special Meals’ Delivered To Him In The Castle

I’m A Celeb’s Naughty Boy Is Getting ‘Special Meals’ Delivered To Him In The Castle

While everyone knows the I'm A Celebrity castle has a pretty drab kitchen, it still caters to people who have specific dietary requirements.

Naughty Boy is getting halal-certified food to ensure his strict Muslim faith isn't affected while he's on the TV show.

According to The Sun, the music producer will get 'specially-prepared food like chicken and lamb dishes'.

He won't have to eat any pork food or products during the Bushtucker Trials as his religion strictly forbids the consumption of the animal.

While the music producer's diet might be looked after, Khan tried to smuggle in some spices to the Welsh castle to make whatever he was given a bit tastier.

He told campmates: "I had whole organic spices so I crushed some and I put it in cling film and I put it in my sock.


"I thought I was going to add it to the rice and beans and make it taste better but I asked them if it was ok if I used a bit because we're suffering enough as it is and they confiscated it."

Look, even the best spice on the planet won't help eating bugs and innards.

The contestant certainly isn't the first person to have their meals adjusted while they're in the camp.

Legendary athlete Sir Mo Farah and boxer Amir Khan required halal meals during their respective stints on I'm A Celebrity.


Despite being determined to be crowned King of the Castle for this year's season, Naughty Boy admitted the first night nearly cracked him.

"I can honestly say, first night in The Clink, I woke up traumatised," he said. "But I had no one to blame but myself. I was even questioning, should I be here?

"A robin flew in. I felt something. That robin's here to see me. We chilled for a bit. Yeah, I was thinking that robin came with a message and all that message is is everything's going to be okay."


During the first episode of the show, viewers felt like they had seen the music producer on TV before...and they weren't wrong.

Long before he was competing in challenges from a castle in Wales, he was trying to succeed on another popular programme.

He once appeared on Deal or No Deal, where he even told host Noel Edmonds about his ambition to make it big in music.

And he didn't do badly, either, having walked away with a pretty incredible £44,000 after taking the banker's offer.
