Real age of I’m A Celeb’s Naughty Boy after school friend says he ‘lied’

It's not long until I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! sadly comes to an end, and it feels like we've come to know the stars so well while on the show.

But one thing we're all still unsure about is just how old Naughty Boy is.

The music producer's age has been documented as 36 in an official press release given to ITV.

It states: "Famed for his love of cooking, the 36-year-old hopes to rustle up some meals in the castle by taking on the role of chef. He also hopes to be someone who everyone can confide in."

And in fact Naughty Boy himself has stated his age as 36 in various interviews, but public records show otherwise.

So just how old is Naughty Boy? Well, let's take a look…

How old is I'm A Celebrity star Naughty Boy?

According to a report by The Sun, the music star was born on January 1 1989 in Watford.

This would make him 41 at the start of 2022.

Backing this up, a former school friend of Naughty Boy's said he is in fact 40.

"Naughty by name and naughty by nature – he’s having a laugh by making out he’s younger," the pal said.

They continued: "Shahid’s real age is Watford’s worst kept secret.

“It’s great he’s done so well. But blatantly lying about his age is pretty sad."

The 40 year old former pal of Naughty's claims he attended the secondary school Westfield Academy in Watford with the star.

Naughty Boy has been taking on a great deal of challenges while on the show, and fans think they've spotted a secret rift between him and EastEnders star Adam Woodyatt.

During Saturday evening's trial, Adam, 53, and former Spurs star David Ginola, 54, were tasked to unlock a series of padlocks with Naughty Boy, to win stars while offal and rotten fruit were hurled their way.

The Cells of Hell challenge saw Adam and David working together well but when it came to passing the keys to Naughty Boy, Adam ended up throwing them into his cell rather than giving them to him one by one.

Following the trial, Naughty confirmed that they got four out of 11 of the stars before pointing out that Adam's strategy of throwing the keys on the floor was not helpful.

"That made it a bit difficult… I had to look for them in the mess. I tried my best."

Naughty Boy then said to Ant and Dec: “I’m disappointed as I’m the one who could have got another three," as David added: “Don’t worry about that. Out of five games you can have a bad one.”

Viewers were quick to flock to Twitter to share their thoughts on the discussion as many claimed Adam projected his EastEnders character Ian Beale.

"Adam being totally Ian Beale hahahaha….funny as f***. #ImACeleb," one person wrote as a second agreed: "Adam unleashing his inner Ian Beale. #ImACeleb".
