What is the name of Naughty Boy? Here’s everything we know about the I’m A Celeb star name …

I’m a Celebrity is back for another year, which means we can see Ant and Dec set up some really gruesome Bushtucker essays.

And a man up for the challenge is international music producer Naughty Boy.

The star said he was delighted audiences got to know the “real him” away from his jet-set lifestyle.

So what is Naughty Boy’s real name and where did his stage name come from?

What is Naughty Boy’s real name?

Naughty Boy’s real name is Shahid Khan and he grew up in Watford, Hertfordshire.

His parents are from Pakistan and say he grew up listening to Pakistani music and watching Pakistani movies.

Shahid was studying business and marketing at London Guildhall University, but dropped out and started a series of part-time jobs.

His first major breakthrough in the music industry came in 2009 when he co-wrote and produced Chipmunk’s hit single “Diamond Rings” with Emeli Sandé.

Since then, Naught Boy has worked with great artists including Sam Smith and Beyoncé.

When asked what he was most excited about joining the I’m A Celeb line, he admitted, “I can’t wait to learn more about myself.

“I don’t know what people in the music industry are going to think of me at the Castle, but I think taking a break is something everyone should have and do once a year.

“I love my friends and family, but I think it’s good to take a break and take a break.”

There is also a very poignant reason why he decided to participate, for his mother Zahids, 67, who has been diagnosed with dementia and is now an ambassador for the charity Dementia UK.

Speaking ahead of the show’s launch, Naughty Boy said, “I think it’s important that people like me make this aware,” says the successful music producer.

“Dementia UK needs constant funding, and I will miss Mom the most while I am at the castle. I live with mom and used to see her all the time.

“Mum is not doing very well and it will be difficult for me to be away. But that said, I think the break will be good for both of us.”
