He’s only been at Main Camp for one day, but he already has plenty to say about how his new camp mates cook.
And tensions reached a boiling point on Thursday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! while Naughty Boy and Frankie Bridge started arguing over rice.
The 36-year-old DJ confided to Danny Miller: ‘That was hard for me to eat. It’s not supposed to be rice pudding, it’s supposed to be rice with beans.”
‘That was hard for me to eat’: Tensions reached a boiling point on Thursday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! while Naughty Boy and Frankie Bridge started arguing over rice
Although Naughty Boy admitted ‘maybe this isn’t the place to be passionate about cooking’, he nevertheless shared his concerns about the meal in The Telegraph.
The musician mused, “I don’t want to be the one to say it, I’m just real, it’s not rice.”
‘If we have rice and beans, people would rather have rice and beans, not rice pudding and beans. I don’t know if I’m going crazy or exaggerating.’
Frankie didn’t take the criticism well and hit back: ‘You just entered our camp and this was exactly what we did…’
‘No, this is OUR camp’: Naughty Boy was very offended by the idea that the camp was not equal and corrected Frankie for pretending to be an outsider
Don’t hold back: The DJ told Danny Miller that Main Camp hadn’t cooked rice correctly. He said to Danny, ‘Rice pudding is supposed to be a sweet dish, it was hard for me to eat’
‘Rice pudding’: In the Bush Telegraph, Naughty Boy said, ‘I’m quite passionate about cooking and maybe this isn’t the place to have a passion for cooking. I don’t wanna be the one to say it, I’m just real, it’s not rice’
Too many cooks: Naughty Boy said the rice was inedible, to which Frankie retorted, “You just entered our camp and this was exactly what we did…”
Naught Boy corrected her and clarified: ‘No, this is’ U.S camp. That’s wrong what you just said.’
The altercation confused Frankie, who wondered aloud, “How did I get into an argument about something that…” before Naughty Boy cut her off with, “It’s not your camp.”
In an effort to resolve the situation, Frankie said, “Don’t act like that,” to which Naughty Boy looked back, “Don’t say things the way you came. U.S camp.’
The Saturday singer then completely walked away from the conversation.
Stress: ‘I’d rather not have rice now. I just hate any confrontation. Now I’m like, “Oh my god, did I say something bad?” Now I’ve insulted him…’ Frankie was worried after she ran away
Meanwhile, Naughty Boy kept saying, “Frankie said something where it just suggested we just joined their camp.”
Outside the main camp, Frankie said to Kadeena Cox, “Why can’t anyone here talk about rice?! I can’t handle it.
‘I’d rather not have rice at the moment. I just hate any confrontation. Now I’m like, “Oh my god, did I say something bad?” Now I’ve insulted him…
Fed up: It comes after Naughty Boy threatened to quit the league earlier this week instead of joining Main Camp
‘Why am I talking about rice?! I am someone who avoids confrontation at all costs. I just hate it. I don’t understand what the problem is.’
In The Telegraph, Naughty Boy mused on the situation: ‘Shall we just say this is a childhood disease? It got me thinking, maybe we are the outsiders who have come in now.’
It comes when Naughty Boy is said to have prepared special meals for him at the castle camp in Wales in scenes not shown on television.
The musician, who is a practicing Muslim, apparently receives halal meals at the camp and is not required to eat pork if the team wins dinner at Trials.

According to a source from The Sun, Naughty Boy gets specially prepared meats such as chicken and lamb.
The source also revealed that he will still take part in challenges and trials that will require him to eat creepy-crawlies, as Muslims are not ruling out that.
The source told the publication: ‘The meals will be given to Naughty Boy by the production crew, but it will not be seen on camera.’
Sir Mo Farah and Amir Khan, who have appeared in previous shows, were also given specially prepared meals off-camera.
MailOnline contacted ITV representatives for further comment.

He told his fellow camp mates in The Clink, “I think my time here is up. I had a feeling before and I thought of Mom and of course I love you.
“I don’t think after I knew what the main camp probably knew what they put me through, knowing I’d done the challenge before — I don’t know if I’d ever be able to participate in that camp.”
Ready: He told his fellow camp mates in The Clink: ‘I don’t know if I could ever get to that camp…there is no love’
“This isn’t some random big decision… I tried my best both times today. I just can’t go from here to that main camp… I can’t fake that. I apologize.
“One thing I’ll tell you before you go to the main camp, however much they say they love us, they love you… there is no love. If you guys go to the main camp, they’re the reason I left.
“I can’t go on with something my heart isn’t in anymore. I can’t suddenly join a camp that doesn’t care about us. Sorry, that’s the truth.’
Feeling sad: He added, “I can’t go on with something my heart isn’t in anymore. I can’t suddenly join a camp that doesn’t care about us. Sorry, that’s the truth’
