I’m a Celeb came back with a bang earlier this week, seeing a new cast of celebrities bravely camping at a cold Welsh castle.
We may only be a few days in, but we’ve already had our fair share of drama, with one contestant threatening to quit already.
Naughty Boy threatened to walk out from Gwrych Castle, after struggling to adapt to conditions in ‘the Clink’.
He also felt royally peeved that he was being forced to do the washing up for the rest of the main camp.
But it seems viewers had little sympathy to the music producer, real name Shahid Khan, taking to Twitter to leave a number of disparaging comments.
However, we can reveal that the 36-year-old had to make a difficult choice as to whether he could leave his family and come on the show at all.
Taking to Naughty Boy’s social media accounts, his family defended his attitude, and thanked fans who had defended the star from trolls.
“If only everyone knew what he’s battling on the outside world,” a relative wrote.
“His mum (my nan) is battling dementia and he has been taking care of her for the last five years.
“This is the first time he has left her to do something life-changing! He is just overwhelmed and he will be fine.”
Some fans have previously expressed their concern for Naughty Boy, who has spoken openly about his struggles in camp.
“I actually feel a little sorry for Naughty Boy…” one viewer said. “I think he suffers a little bit with his confidence or something.”
While a second I’m a Celeb viewer shared: “I feel so sorry for Naughty Boy his mental health must be going through the roof right now.”
And a third said: “Naughty Boy is such a good hearted guy really feeling sorry for him.”
Now he’s in the main castle, fingers crossed the star is back to his best.
I’m a Celebrity…continues every night at 9pm on ITV and the ITV Hub.
