Why isn’t Kiosk Keith on I’m A Celebrity and who replaced him?


I’M A Celebrity is back with a bang, and sees the return of the coveted Dingo Dollar Challenge.

But some fans of the hit ITV reality show may wonder what ever happened to Kiosk Keith?

Kiosk Keith was let go from I’m A Celebrity back in 2018

Why isn’t Kiosk Keith on I’m A Celebrity?

In January 2018 HOAR Online revealed that Kiosk Keith had been fired following accusations of “inappropriate behaviour”, and “drinking on set”.

The actor, whose real name is Raymond Grant, had allegedly made an unwanted advance towards a female member of the I’m A Celebrity crew.

On Raymond’s behalf, his ex-wife Donna then denied the accusations made against him, to HOAR Online.

Keith himself wrote a message to fans at the end of 2018, tweeting: “OK just read up that i’m no longer on the show for reasons I won’t say, you can find out yourself ffs.

“This account will no longer be used so enjoy this last tweet of mine.”

In a statement, ITV confirmed he had left the show and would not appear in the 2018 series.

The broadcaster said: “Ray is no longer under contract on the show. There are no plans for him to return this year.”

Who replaced Kiosk Keith?

In November 2018 HOAR exclusively revealed Kiosk Kev would be replacing Kiosk Keith.

Kiosk Kev’s real name is Mark Herlaar and he is a lime farmer from Toowoomba in Queensland.

A show insider told us at the time: “Everyone on set is really pleased with the new Kiosk Kev character – his look has to be seen to be believed.”

The actor was then replaced by Kiosk Cledwyn after the show moved to Wales for 2020 to 2021.

However, for the 2022 series, Kev has returned to the show.
