I'm A Celebrity: Fans left cringing as Nadine Coyle calls Kiosk Kev Keith in Dingo Dollar Challenge


Nadine Coyle was left red-faced on Friday’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here when she accidentally called Kiosk Kev ‘Keith’.

The former Girls Aloud star, 34, was so wrapped up in her moment of victory after the Dingo Dollar Challenge with Jacqueline Jossa, 27, she sang: ‘What has Kiosk Keith got for us today.’

But Kiosk Keith, whose real name is Raymond Grant, was sacked from the show in 2017, and replaced with Kiosk Kev last year.

Eagle-eyed fans rushed to Twitter to comment on the mistake, despite Nadine correcting herself as she got to Kev’s hatch to pick up their chocolate cupcakes.

They penned: 

Did they just say Kiosk Keith? Awks #ImACeleb’; ‘ ‘@NadineCoyleNow just called #KioskKev Keith [laughing emoji] awkward #ImACeleb.’

”Seems like during the dingo dollar challenge, @NadineCoyleNow swapped Kiosk Kev back to Kiosk Keith [laughing face emoji] #ImACeleb.’

One added: ‘Nadine calling kiosk kev keith is an entire mood #ImACeleb.’

While another commented on the fact Nadine was then voted out of the jungle by the end of the episode.

They said: ‘Nadine left cause she called @KioskKev Keith [laughing face emoji] #imaceleb.’ 

Kiosk Keith was fired mid-way through the 2017 show after allegedly ‘behaving inappropriately’ towards a young female crew member.

The 52-year-old reportedly turned up drunk to work and made unwanted advances towards a female colleague on the bus into the Australian jungle.

The father-of-four was sacked after the woman – who was ‘half his age’ – was left ‘so upset’ by his alleged behaviour that she complained to ITV bosses, sources claimed.

A source told The Sun: ‘It wasn’t unusual for Keith to turn up to work drunk as he’s done it before but this incident has shocked everyone.

‘He was drunk when he got on the bus in the morning. Then he behaved inappropriately towards a female member of the team who’s half his age.

They added: ‘It happened in front of loads of people, the girl was so upset.’

The insider claimed that Keith was fired once the woman made a complaint, adding that the crew had nicknamed him ‘Hollywood’ due to his sudden fame.

An ITV spokesperson confirmed that Raymond had been sacked and would not appear on screen again as Kiosk Keith.

They told MailOnline: ‘Ray is no longer under contract on the show. There are no plans for him to return this year.’

Raymond had been due to appear on the German version of the popular show.

He was a favourite with fans and even has his own Twitter page, which claimed: ‘Aussie LAD born and bred. Employee of the month at The Outback Shack. I’m the biggest Celebrity in I’m a Celebrity.’

He was best known for running the camp shop, and delighted viewers with his grumpy exterior when stars approached to collect their prizes for the Dingo Dollar challenges.

Raymond started off on the show as a labourer in 2002, when he helped to build the show’s set, and was scouted by bosses to star as the silent shopkeeper.

However, his ex-wife Donna revealed Keith was not a full time job, and Raymond was simply called away from his artistic duties when they wanted to film scenes at the Outback Shack.

She also went on to shock fans by revealing he was not paid any extra for the on-screen role, despite his huge popularity.
