Fans are divided

| Updated:

Kiosk Keith’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! replacement made his debut on Monday night’s show.

Keith, the infamous “Outback Shack” shopkeeper, was sacked from the show in January following accusations he turned up to work drunk and behaved inappropriately towards a female colleague.

He has now been replaced by Kiosk Kev and viewers are not sure what to make of him.

One person said: “Kiosk Kev is like a Poundland version of Kiosk Keith.”

Another wrote: “Sorry but where is Kiosk Keith? Not smiling for Kev.”

Others seemed to like Kev.

One person said: “I was a bit sad Kiosk Keith is gone, but after reading the story about it…Go Kiosk Kev.”

Keith, whose real name is Raymond Grant, originally joined the show as a set builder in 2002 and was chosen to play the infamous Outback Shack shopkeeper in 2013.

Earlier this year, a spokesperson for ITV confirmed that Raymond had been sacked from the reality TV show and there were no longer plans for him to return this year.

It came after The Sun claimed the father-of-four had been given the boot from the show after a female crew member complained to ITV bosses about his behaviour at work.

It was also said that Keith apparently arrived at work drunk, before allegedly making unwanted advances towards a young female colleague on the staff bus that takes everyone to work in the jungle.
