I’m A Celeb: Amir Khan downs vomit fruit smoothie


He likely had quite the guilty conscience, after secretly munching the Dingo Dollar Challenge prize with Iain Lee, before allowing the comedian to take all of the blame.

But on Thursday’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, Amir Khan appeared to redeem himself, when he downed a foul-tasting smoothie made of vomit fruit in a bid to win food for his campmates in the Bushtucker Trial.

After effortlessly chugging down the dubious concoction, the boxer was left with a frothy moustache as he told co-hosts Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly: ‘[It tastes like] vomit – really bad vomit… It’s really strong as well. That was really bad!’

The 30-year-old sportsman took part in the task alongside Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo and was understandly looked cautious when a glass filled with the smoothie – playfully dubbed hurl grey by Ant and Dec – was placed before him.

As he lifted the glass to his mouth, his rested his head on his hand in regretful anticipation, before bravely chugging everything down in one go.

Vomit fruit, also known as cheese fruit, is a product of the morinda citrifolia tree that is known forgiving off a decidedly pungent scent and taste when ripening.

His efforts during Thursday’s task stand in stark contrast to his antics during Wednesday night’s episode of I’m A Celeb, when he angered his campmates.

Amir and Iain Lee became jungle villains after they were shown eating the Dingo Dollar Challenge prize unbeknownst to their hungry campmates.

Adding to the betrayal, Amir then later left pal Iain to take much of the blame despite the boxer being the one to instigate the naughty situation and subsequently caused mass outrage among their fellow celebrities.

The pair were picked to take part in the daily challenge – which saw boxer Amir get dressed up as a giant cat while Iain led the blindfolded boxer through the Jungle Pawn Shop. 

Despite a few close shaves, the pair triumphantly won the challenge and headed off to the Outback Shack to spend their dingo dollars on strawberries and cream with Keith Kiosk.

And while the camp successfully answered their question about the percentage of British people who have undergone cosmetic surgery correctly, Amir planted a naughty suggestion into Iain’s ear about the fruit they had just won.

He said: ‘Shall we eat them and say it was the wrong answer, shall we do that?’ To which Iain laughed: ‘And then they will say hang on is that cream on your moustache? It’s tempting isn’t it?

Pushing his luck, Amir asked again: ‘Are we eating them or not, I’m having them, I want them, I want to eat them now.’

Falling at the first hurdle, Iain’s willpower crumpled and he confessed: ‘Right I’m eating them, I’m going to eat the strawberries’.

Sitting down to dine on their feast, Iain’s conscience came into play yet again as he second guessed his decision to eat the sweet fruit.

He shared: ‘I’m so torn, let’s just open them and have a look and see what we’ve got.’

Shock: Toff couldn't believe it when she heard the boys confess to eating the sweet treats

While Iain continued to contemplate whether to eat the prize or not, Amir suddenly poured the cream all over the strawberries, leaving them with no other choice than to gorge on the fruit feast.

‘This is the worst thing we’ve ever done,’ said Iain before they hid the evidence behind a tree. 

Heading straight to the Bush Telegraph after eating the feast, Iain confessed: ‘We won some strawberries and cream and Amir physically intimidated me and forced me to eat the strawberries and cream.’

To which, Amir added: ‘Otherwise I would have beaten him up with these (his paw covered hands).’

Conscience: He said: 'Shall we eat them and say it was the wrong answer, shall we do that?' To which Iain laughed: 'And then they will say hang on is that cream on your moustache? It's tempting isn't it?

Arriving back to camp, the pair initially lied to their campmates that they had guessed incorrectly as they listed out the camp’s potential choice of treats.

Amir groaned: ‘Sixty five (percent) come on guys it was the wrong answer. We didn’t win.’

However, the betrayal proved too much for Iain as he told Amir that he had to confess and come clean to their campmates.  ‘We have to tell them,’ protested Iain. 

But Amir – who’s idea it was originally to eat the strawberries – said: ‘I ain’t going to tell them you can but I’m going to say it was your fault then, if you tell them you need to take the full blame, the only way they are going to find out is when they go back home back to the UK, they can find out then.’

With his head in his hands Iain said: ‘I can’t live like this.’

Unable to cope with their deceit, Iain asked the celebrities for their attention. 

‘I have something really horrible to confess,’ he began. ‘We won the strawberries and cream, I thought it would be really funny to eat them all on my own, I am not joking, I am beyond shame and cannot live with this anymore.’

However, none of the camp mates took Iain’s confession seriously at first with Jamie encouraging him to bring out the treats.

But having already eaten the fruit, Iain continued: ‘On my life I have eaten them, I thought it would be funny, I thought I could do it and I couldn’t and I’m really, really sorry.’

In shock about the situation, the pair’s campmate Dennis uttered: ‘Tell me you haven’t done it.’

Then Amir entered camp from the Bush Telegraph still in cat costume, admitting that he also ate the strawberries.

Becky said: ‘He looks like the cat who got the cream.’ Shappi asked: ‘Have you got strawberries in your belly Amir Khan?’ 

Iain added: ‘We thought it was a gag, it wasn’t, I’m really sorry.’ Jamie chipped in: ‘No there is no way you would do that to your mates, no way.’

Pulling the wool over their eyes: Arriving back to camp, the pair lied to their campmates that they had guessed incorrectly before revealing the choice of treats that were up for grabs. Amir groaned: 'Sixty five (percent) come on guys it was the wrong answer. We didn’t win'

A horrified Dennis agreed: ‘Just out of principle guys that is so wrong, so wrong.’ While Rebekah added: ‘If they were my kids I would be going ape s**t right now’. 

Despite being the one who came up with the idea, Amir finally confessed: ‘We wouldn’t do it to our mates but guess what we did we are putting our hands up.’

A furious Dennis added: ‘Well this is all very simple if we win any more going forward you don’t get anything ok?’

Iain and Amir agreed that the campmates didn’t have to share their dinner of camel flank.

Confessions: Then Amir entered camp from the Bush Telegraph still in cat costume, admitting that he also ate the strawberries. Shappi asked, 'Have you got strawberries in your belly Amir?'

Whilst Iain was with Toff doing camp maintenance, Jamie turned to Amir and asked ‘So was it his idea?’ (Referring to the strawberries and cream incident with Iain). 

Amir looked sheepish and didn’t answer which Jamie took as Amir saying it was Iain’s fault. Jamie later spoke to Dennis and told him Amir had said it was Iain’s fault they had no strawberries and cream.  

Back in the Bush Telegraph, Iain admitted he would eat the strawberries and cream again despite the upset he caused in camp.
