I'm A Celeb's Kadeena Cox details 'strained relationship' with Naughty Boy 'Isn't fun'


Kadeena Cox has become the second contestant to be booted off I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! The Paralympian appeared on Tuesday’s instalment of Lorraine to speak to host Lorraine Kelly about her time on the popular show. However, the star ended up opening up on her “strained relationship” with fellow campmate Naughty Boy.

Kadeena, 30, and Naughty Boy, 40, rubbed each other up the wrong way on numerous occasions on I’m A Celebrity, with camp meals being a bone of contention for the both of them as they were both allocated as the camp’s chefs. 

The athlete opened up in the Telegraph that she’d been left annoyed by the DJ’s lack of food preparation and later told Naughty Boy not to talk to her. 

A frustrated Kadeena told Naughty Boy she was “tired of repeating” herself to him as it was “annoying”. 

Another row ensued in front of the camp when the DJ once again took exception to Kadeena being “rude”.

Speaking to Lorraine about her experience on I’m A Celebrity, Kadeena admitted when she signed up she thought it would be “kind of plain sailing” but soon realised it was tougher than she’d anticipated. 

The gold medalist was asked about the difficulties she faced while cooking for the camp which caused tensions among the celebrities. 

“I knew this was going to come up wasn’t it?” Kadeena quipped. 

“It’s tough in there you know, there’s not a lot of space and when you have so many people to feed to want to make everyone happy.

Kadeena became close to singer Frankie Bridge, DJ Snoochie Shy and former BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin during her time on the ITV show. 

Kadeena explained: “I would love one of the girls to win and I have my money on Louise who has been the mother to all of us and I think all of us would be super happy if it’s her.” 

She added: “She’s been there for all of us when we have been low.” 

During the interview, Kadeena also talked about living with multiple sclerosis (MS), which she was diagnosed with back in 2014.
