Popular music producer, Naughty Boy has been confirmed to appear in this year’s ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ on ITV1.
In media interactions, Naughty Boy, real name, Shahid Khan, said the reason why he was doing the reality show was to raise awareness for charity Dementia UK. He revealed that his mother, Zahids, 67, suffers from dementia.
He was cited in The Sun saying, “I think it is important for people like myself to create awareness about it,” the hit music producer explains.
“Dementia UK needs constant funding, and I am going to miss Mum the most whilst I am away in the Castle. I live with Mum, and I am used to seeing her all the time.
“Mum hasn’t been very well, and it is going to be difficult for me being away. But that said, I think the break will be good for both of us.”
Shahid is his mum’s carer and looked after her through the lockdowns, which he described as a “beautiful challenge”.
He added: “I look for glimpses, as long as I get a few glimpses a day of who Mum really is.
“A lot of that is to do with love, when I get a love vibration from her or something that reminds me that I’m her youngest son and she’s my mum, she’s still there.”
