Naughty Boy and Frankie Bridge row over rice on I'm A Celeb

I’m A Celeb 2021: ‘That was difficult for me to eat!’ Tensions reach boiling point in castle camp as Naughty Boy and tearful Frankie Bridge row over how to cook rice

He’s only been in Main Camp for one day but he already has plenty to say about how his new campmates cook. 

And tensions reached boiling point on Thursday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! as Naughty Boy and Frankie Bridge began arguing over rice.  

The 36-year-old DJ confided to Danny Miller: ‘That was difficult for me to eat. It’s not supposed to be rice pudding, it’s supposed to be rice that goes with beans.’

‘That was difficult for me to eat’: Tensions reached boiling point on Thursday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! as Naughty Boy and Frankie Bridge began arguing over rice 

Although Naughty Boy admitted ‘maybe this isn’t the place to be passionate about cooking’ he still detailed his concerns over the meal in The Telegraph. 

The musician fretted: ‘I don’t want to be the one who says it, I’m just being real, it’s not rice.’    

‘If we’re having rice and beans, people would prefer to have rice and beans, not rice pudding and beans. I don’t know if I’m going crazy or overthinking.’ 

Not taking the criticism well, Frankie hit back: ‘You’re just coming into our camp and this was just what we did…’ 

‘No, this is OUR camp’: Naughty Boy was very offended by the idea that the camp wasn’t equal and corrected Frankie for acting like he was an outsider 

Not holding back: The DJ told Danny Miller Main Camp didn’t cook rice correctly. He said to Danny: ‘Rice pudding is supposed to be a sweet dish, that was difficult for me to eat’

‘Rice pudding’: In the Bush Telegraph, Naughty Boy said: ‘I’m quite passionate about cooking and maybe this isn’t the place to be passionate about cooking. I don’t want to be the one who says it, I’m just being real, it’s not rice’

Too many cooks: Naughty Boy said the rice was inedible, to which Frankie hit back ‘You’re just coming into our camp and this was just what we did…’

Naught Boy corrected her, clarifying: ‘No, this is our camp. That’s wrong what you just said.’ 

The altercation baffled Frankie who wondered aloud: ‘How have I ended up in a discussion over something that’s…’ before Naughty Boy cut her off with: ‘It’s not your camp.’ 

Attempting to resolve the situation, Frankie said: ‘Don’t be like that,’ to which Naughty Boy shot back: ‘Don’t say things like you came to our camp.’

The Saturdays singer then walked away from the conversation altogether. 

Stress: ‘I’d rather not have rice at this point. I just hate any confrontation. Now I’m like, “Oh my god, did I say something bad?” Now I’ve offended him…’ Frankie fretted after walking away 

Meanwhile, Naughty Boy continued on saying: ‘Frankie said something where it just implied we just joined their camp.’ 

Outside the Main Camp area, Frankie said to Kadeena Cox: ‘Why can no one talk about rice in here?! I can’t deal with it.

‘I’d rather not have rice at this point. I just hate any confrontation. Now I’m like, “Oh my god, did I say something bad?” Now I’ve offended him… 

Fed up: It comes after Naughty Boy threatened to quit the competition altogether rather than join Main Camp earlier this week 

‘Why am I talking about rice?! I’m someone who avoids confrontation at all costs. I just hate it. I don’t understand what the issue is.’  

In The Telegraph, Naughty Boy mused of the situation: ‘Shall we just say this is like a teething period? It just made me think, maybe we are the outsiders who have now come in.’ 

It comes as Naughty Boy reportedly has special meals prepared for him in the Welsh castle camp in scenes which are not shown on television. 

The musician, who is a practicing Muslim, will apparently receive Halal meals in the camp and will not be required to eat pork when the team wins dinner at Trials.

According to a The Sun source, Naughty Boy will receive specially prepared meats such as chicken and lamb. 

The source also revealed he will still take part in challenges and trials which require him to eat creepy crawlies, as Muslim do not rule that out. 

The source told the publication: ‘The meals will be given to Naughty Boy by production crew but it won’t be seen on camera.’ 

Sir Mo Farah and Amir Khan, who appeared in past shows, were also given specially prepared meals off camera. 

MailOnline contacted ITV’s representatives for further comment. 

It comes after Naughty Boy threatened to quit the competition altogether rather than join Main Camp earlier this week. 

He told his fellow campmates in The Clink: ‘I do think my time here is done. I had a feeling earlier and I was thinking about mum and obviously I love you guys.

‘I don’t think after knowing what the Main Camp probably knew what they were putting me through knowing I did the challenge earlier – I don’t know if I could ever join that camp.’

Done: He told his fellow campmates in The Clink: ‘I don’t know if I could ever join that camp.… there is no love’ 

‘This isn’t a random big decision… I’ve tried my best both times today. I just can’t go from here into that Main Camp… I can’t fake that. I’m sorry. 

‘One thing I’ll tell you before you guys go into the Main Camp, as much as they say they love us, they love you… there is no love. When you guys go to the Main Camp, they’re the reason why I left.   

‘I can’t continue something that my heart’s not in anymore. I can’t suddenly join a camp who doesn’t give a s**t about us. Sorry, that’s the truth.’ 

Feeling sad: He added: ‘I can’t continue something that my heart’s not in anymore. I can’t suddenly join a camp who doesn’t give a s**t about us. Sorry, that’s the truth’
