A source who spoke to The Sun said:

Shahid is really excited to go into the castle and is up for the challenge. He loves his creature comforts, so he knows it will be a tough gig... Producers hope that around the campfire he will spill on all the pop stars he’s worked with.

Shahid was originally set to be a campmate on I’m A Celeb 2020 but pulled out at the last minute and was replaced by Jordan North—who went on to finish runner-up. Will Shahid top his success?

Who is Naughty Boy?

Naughty Boy has been active on the UK music scene since 2005 and in that time he’s worked with the crème de la crème of British artists—as well as international stars like Beyoncé. As well as having his own hit tunes such as 2013’s La La La featuring Sam Smith, he’s also produced records for Chipmunk, Wiley, JLS, Alesha Dixon, Leona Lewis and Tinie Tempah. Other artists he’s collaborated with include Ed Sheeran, Zayn Malik and Dua Lipa.

Despite this impressive CV, he’s said to be ‘really humble and actually quite shy’. Away from music, he’s also an ambassador for Dementia UK, a charity close to his heart as his mother is living with the condition.

I’m A Celeb 2021 line-up

While no names have yet been officially confirmed for the I’m A Celeb 2021 line-up, there are a few big names that are looking very likely. These include presenter Richard Madeley, Olympic diver Matty Lee and Frankie Bridge from The Saturdays. Also rumoured are Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall and ex-Love Islander Maura Higgins.
