I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! made a dramatic return to ITV on Sunday night for an all-new series. The series, which is being filmed in a historic castle in North Wales for another year, includes 10 famous faces who are hoping to be crowned King – or Queen – of the Castle. However, Naughty Boy, whose real name is Shahid Khan, quickly found himself in trouble after smuggling some spices into the camp in his sock.
The line-up for the series includes pop star Frankie Bridge, broadcaster and former BBC Breakfast host Louise Minchin, music producer Naughty Boy, journalist Richard Madeley, Olympian Matty Lee, Paralympian Kadeena Cox, footballer David Ginola, choreographer Dame Arlene Phillips, Radio 1Xtra DJ Snoochie Shy and Emmerdale star Danny Miller.
In the opening episode of the ITV reality show’s 21st series, viewers watched the celebrities set up camp in the Welsh castle following a rough day of “terrifying” challenges.
Frankie, Louise, Kadeena, Matty and Snoochie walked into the main camp and excitedly explored where they’d be sleeping and eating together.
Louise quipped: “I was hoping for a blazing fire when we walked in. I think I’ve bigged it up in my head.”
All of them commented on how cold it was in the camp, saying it was the “most uncosy” place they’d ever been to.
Louise added: “The bedroom is interesting. At the moment it feels really cold in there which makes me a bit nervous and we’re all quite spread out.”
The former BBC Breakfast host and the others were also reluctant to use the shower which they thought looked extremely unappealing.
Meanwhile, Arlene, Naughty Boy, Richard, David and Danny reluctantly entered the Clink.
Former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene remarked: “Oh my, we are open to the elements, let’s hope it doesn’t rain.
“I’m about to sleep in probably the single worst bed and place that I have come across in all my 78 years.”
They thought the shower looked like it had “icicles” coming off it and when Danny pulled the chain which operated the shower, it fell off.
Richard tried to light a fire and despite getting sparks to fly, he couldn’t make a flame.

Back in the main camp Matty was able to light their fire straight away and a rabbit was delivered for dinner which Kadeena cooked.
Meanwhile, it was rice and beans for dinner in the Clink which the celebs were not too happy about.
However, Naughty Boy confessed he’d smuggled some spices into the camp to add some flavour to the bland rations.
He explained: “Before I left, I ground some spices that could make rice and beans actually taste a bit nice so what I did, I put it in my sock.”
Naughty Boy explained to his campmates: “I had whole organic spices so I crushed some and I put it in cling film and I put it in my sock.
“I thought I was going to add it to the rice and beans and make it taste better but I asked them if it was ok if I used a bit because we’re suffering enough as it is and they confiscated it.”
The other celebrities looked at him as he explained, then Danny said: “It was really good of you to think of us like that.”
And later Richard said: “Well Naughty Boy had really lived up to his name. He smuggled in something for camp. I think that’s a real mark of character actually.”
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! continues at 9pm on ITV.
