WELSHMAN Kiosk Cledwyn is a new addition to I’m A Celebrity this year.
Stern-looking Cledwyn has taken over shop duties from Kiosk Kev – who was the shopkeeper when the ITV series took place in Australia.
Who is Kiosk Cledwyn?
HOAR exclusively revealed how Kiosk Cledwyn – who insiders said is named after the late, legendary local politician Cledwyn Hughes – will make his on-screen debut during the first week of the show.
When celebs are rewarded with treats from the Kiosk for completing challenges, stern-faced Cledwyn only lets them have the items if their camp members answer a question right.
On Thursday, November 26, Jordan had to answer Kiosk Cledwyn’s multiple choice question – “What percentage of parents admitted to having a favourite child?”
Jordan got the answer right with 10%, and so the celebs were rewarded with the jelly beans that Victoria and Hollie had won.
A source told us: “ITV bosses are having a lot of fun with the tweaks being made to this year’s series, including the characters who’ve been on the show since it started in 2002.
“The name is a bit of an in-joke and is a nod to Cledwyn, who was the Secretary of State for Wales in the late Sixties.”
Has Kiosk Cledwyn been on TV before?
As we don’t know who the actor is yet, this is hard to say, but they are a first for I’m A Celebrity.
The show may have chosen an unknown actor, so it brings more mystery to the role.
Fans have already been speculating over his appearance, with some thinking he has a striking resemblance to Escape to the Chateau’s Dick Strawbridge.
What happened to Kiosk Kev and Keith?
Kiosk Kev, who is played by a farmer called Mark Herlaar, joined the show in 2019 as part of the Dingo Dollar challenge as Kiosk Keith’s replacement.
However, as the show is now in a Welsh castle instead of the Aussie jungle, it wasn’t possible to fly Mark out.
A source told us: “Obviously flying Kiosk Kev to the UK was a no-go so they’ve cast Kiosk Cledwyn.”
Meanwhile Kiosk Keith, who made the role famous, was fired from the show in 2018, after five years on the series.
HOAR Online revealed how Kiosk Keith, who’s real name was Raymond Grant, had been sacked after being accused of arriving to work drunk and behaving inappropriately towards a female colleague.
When does I’m A Celebrity start on TV?
I’m A Celebrity is on everyday at 9pm on ITV.
Saturday night’s shows will be a round up of the week’s activities in camp.
You can catch up with any episodes you miss on the ITV Hub.
