Well, he is certainly well placed to speak about what happened behind closed doors in the King of Pop’s house.

The disgraced physician gained notoriety after Michael Jackson’s death in 2009.

He was eventually banned from practising medicine and convicted of manslaughter for his role in Jacko’s passing.

Conrad has always pleaded his innocence: “I was an innocent man unjustly accused and then incarcerated.”

There have been claims that Michael Jackson’s son Prince had written to ITV, asking for Conrad to not appear.

It seems though that he may get his wish.

An ITV spokesman said: “We have never approached this man to be a contestant on I’m A Celebrity.”
