I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestant Naughty Boy discussed plans to exit the show during Tuesday night’s instalment – and and Dame Arlene Phillips admitted she's feeling the same way.
DJ Naughty Boy, whose real name is Shahid Khan, was already struggling after his first night in The Clink, when he revealed he felt “traumatised” by his experience.
World-famous choreographer and dancer Arlene had also struggled to adapt to the sleeping arrangements and some of the campers’ snoring keeping her awake.
But after another day, fractures started to crack and things reached breaking point after they felt betrayed by the Main Camp during another Bushtucker trial, which saw Snoochie Shy screaming and shouting in terror.
“I think she’s really upset with the other campers for picking Naughty Boy,” Emmerdale star Danny Miller tried to explain in The Telegraph. "I think if you were going to go for a weak link you’d go for Arlene. You’ve got a couple of angry campers in here."
Danny was referring to a decision the main campers were forced to make for to choose Snoochie's opponent on the Treacherous Traps trial.
And after some deliberation, they chose Naughty Boy. He also had to do another challenge earlier in the day to win some biscuits for camp – which he lost.
As trouble was brewing, TV host Richard Madeley tried to put a positive spin on the situation when Naughty Boy returned to announce he’d also lost the trial.
“You tried!” Richard, 65, insisted, as a downhearted 36 year old Naughty Boy told the group: “Honestly guys, I tried my best.”
“That’s all you can do!” Danny agreed, but Naughty Boy was fuming with the Main Camp.
“I do think my time here is done,” he declared. “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.”
Trying to be calm and help Naughty Boy take some time to really think about his decision, Richard offered: “Listen, because we love having you with us, would you not at least sleep on it?”
But suddenly, Arlene then chimed in: “I feel exactly the same.”
“This isn’t a random big decision… I’ve tried my best both times today,” Naughty Boy went on. “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."
While DJ Snoochie was blissfully unaware of the struggles happening in The Clink and celebrated her win with her campmates, Naughty Boy still hadn’t changed his mind by dinnertime.
This Morning presenter Richard read out a scroll announcing that the two camps would be merging in the morning, but Naughty Boy shared: “I don’t think I will be going to main camp, I can’t continue that my heart’s not in anymore, I’m led by my heart.”
Arlene added she was also considering leaving the show while Richard urged the pair to sleep on their decision.
However, hosts Ant and Dec revealed the pair ended up joining Main Camp "with the intention of confronting" the red team.
