I’m A Celebrity 2021 star Naughty Boy decided he was going to leave camp for the third time, before changing his mind again
I’m A Celebrity viewers saw music producer Naughty Boy threaten to quit the ITV series yet again on Friday night, just hours after co-star Richard Madeley left the show after a visit to hospital.
The star initially wanted to quit at the start of the series, due to the conditions of The Clink where he and some of the other stars on the line-up were banished to.
He also didn’t think he would be able to get along with the other stars in the main camp, but issues were soon resolved when they were merged.
Since then, the star has expressed a desire to leave again, and on Friday night the episode saw him yet again claim he was quitting for good.
As his campmates asked him about it, he vowed he would be leaving in the morning after another tough day in the castle.
He told new pals Snoochie Shy, Matty Lee and Danny Miller: “I want to make tonight a special night, as I will be leaving in the morning.”
Snoochie asked: “You will be? You’re leaving?” to which Naughty Boy replied: “I just think my time here is done.”
Radio DJ Snoochie told him: “I feel like your journey’s only just begun. If I had handcuffs I’d chain you to a chair, but I don’t.”
But Naughty Boy replied: “At some point you do have to do what’s best for you.”
He then confirmed his plans to the crew, saying in the Telegraph: “I’m still planning to leave tomorrow. I feel like my journey here in the camp has come to an end. I can’t go against my spirit.”
As his campmates shared their upset, he added: “I genuinely feel good about it.
“I don’t feel sad, I don’t feel like… I wouldn’t be leaving if I knew I haven’t challenged myself or overcome any fears because what’s the point of being here in the first place?”
Olympian Matty responded: “Sad to see you go mate,” as Naughty Boy said: “It’ll be sad for me to go, honestly, I love all of you.”
But the music star made a complete U-turn the next day, following success during the latest trial.
He won 11 stars securing a huge meal for camp, and this was enough for him to change his mind and stick around it seems.
Emmerdale star Danny asked him: “Are you going to stick around now? You’re not going anywhere are you?”
Confirming he’d stay, Naughty Boy told him: “I can’t… after 11 stars!”
I’m A Celebrity airs every night at 9pm on ITV.
