I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! contestant Naughty Boy, whose real name is Shahid Khan, is one of 10 celebrities to have entered Gwrych Castle in Conwy. The music producer is well known for his collaborations with acts such as Beyonce, Emeli Sandé, Rihanna and Sam Smith. In Tuesday’s episode, Naughty Boy admitted he “woke up traumatised” and was left “questioning” if he should be there following a rough night in The Clink. However, for now, Naughty Boy remains in camp, although it has now been reported he’s given different meals to the rest of his co-stars.

The music artist is Muslim and therefore can only eat Halal foods, a source has claimed. 

He is able to take part in eating trials which usually involve eating creepy-crawlies but won’t be served non-Halal foods. 

An unnamed source said: “The meals will be given to Naughty Boy by the production crew.”

Speaking to The Sun, they continued: “but it won’t be seen on camera.”

Due to religious reasons, Naughty Boy will not be required to eat any pork products if his camp wins dinner after a Bushtucker Trial. 

Instead, the hit-maker will reportedly be offered chicken or lamb dishes that have been specially prepared.  

Express.co.uk has contacted ITV for comment.

The award-winning music producer has spoken openly about his religion on ITV News’ series Young, British and Muslim.

Proud of his achievements, Naughty boy spoke to ITV about his religion, he said: “I’m so much more comfortable now to talk about being proud of being Pakistani, being proud of being Muslim because I’ve got a CV. 

“Those songs were given without me trying to sell my skin colour,” he continued.

This is not the first time ITV producers have given a celebrity separate meals in camp. 

Olympian Sir Mo Farah and professional boxer Amir Khan were also given Halal meals off-camera when they took part in the show.

On Tuesday’s episode of, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Naughty Boy went head-to-head with Snoochie Shy as they battled out the latest Bushtucker Trial. 

ITV viewers saw tensions were high in the camp after Ant and Dec announced that the producer would be the next celebrity to face the gruesome Bushtucker challenge. 

The decision was made by fellow campmates Snoochie, Louise Minchin, Frankie Bridge, Matty Lee and Kadeena Cox in Main Camp.

The Clink consists of celebs Danny Miller, Richard Madeley, Arlene Phillips, Naughty Boy and David Ginola.

The shock announcement resulted in the star snapping at Richard Madeley as he moaned: “Why did they choose me?”

Along with Arlene, Naughty Boy told his campmates how he was on the verge of leaving the series.

However, Ant and Dec confirmed at the end of Tuesday’s episode that the pair remained in camp for now.

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Here! airs tonight on ITV at 9pm.
