Kiosk Keith dramatically SACKED from I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!

The Outback Shack won't be the same again

I’m A Celebrity’s Kiosk Keith won’t be appearing in the next series of the show after reportedly turning up to work drunk and behaving inappropriately to a female crew member.

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.

But according to The Sun, the father of four has been sacked from the show after a female crew member complained to ITV bosses about his behaviour at work.

Suggestions have been made that the 52-year-old apparently arrived at work drunk, before making unwanted advances towards a young female colleague on the staff bus that takes everyone to work in the jungle.

A source told the newspaper, “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. The he behaved inappropriately towards a female member of the team who is half his age.

It happened in front of loads of people, and the girl was so upset. As soon as she made a complaint Keith was sacked. It’s good riddance really.”

A spokesperson for ITV confirmed that Raymond has been sacked from the reality TV show and there are no longer plans for him to return this year.

Raymond was set to appear in the German version of the reality show, staring this month, but will no longer be taking part.

Producers of the show are now apparently hunting for a replacement actor to become the new kiosk owner – something that is set to shock fans.
