Naughty Boy On I’m a Celebrity 2021
British music producer and rapper ‘Naughty Boy’ joined “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here” 2021 edition. But, he made it clear up front, he was not a celebrity but his music was. He explained that the songs he wrote were famous and joining the show was the opportunity for people to know the man behind the music.
Previously, Mr. Naughty had rejected being on the show to take care of his mom. When the show came back around he had a good feeling and things were so much easier with his mum at the moment. If the show was in Australia, he probably wouldn’t do it because he couldn’t leave his mom for too long.
The British rapper was joined by Cheshire’s Louise Minchin, retired football star David Ginola, Radio 1Xtra DJ Snoochie Shy, Good Morning Britain host Richard Madeley, and The Saturdays’ Frankie Bridge. The only preparation that he had was cooking which he did extensively during the lockdown period.
