Tensions ended up flaring between Naughty Boy and Frankie Bridge after the pair disagreed over how the rice was to be cooked on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.
The pair’s altercation began over the cooking but heated up due to an offhand comment from Frankie about Naughty Boy and the others joining ‘their’ camp.
On Thursday’s show, Naughty Boy was seen in the Bush Telegraph telling the camera: ‘I’m quite passionate about cooking and maybe this isn’t the place to be passionate about cooking.
‘I don’t want to be the one who says it, I’m just being real, it’s not rice.’
He told fellow campmate Danny Miller: ‘Rice pudding is supposed to be a sweet dish, that was difficult for me to eat. It’s not supposed to be rice pudding, it’s supposed to be rice that goes with beans.’
The producer added in the Bush Telegraph: ‘If we’re having rice and beans, people would prefer to have rice and beans, not rice pudding and beans. I don’t know if I’m going crazy or overthinking.’

Frankie addressed the issue with him afterwards, telling him: ‘You’re just coming into our camp and this was just what we did…’
Naughty Boy took umbrage with her words, replying: ‘No, this is our camp. That’s wrong what you just said. It’s not your camp.’
The confrontation left Frankie upset, as she walked away and told Kadeena Cox: ‘Why can no one talk about rice in here? I can’t deal with it.
‘I’d rather not have rice at this point. I just hate any confrontation. Now I’m like, “Oh my god, did I say something bad?” Now I’ve offended him… why am I talking about rice.
‘I’m someone who avoids confrontation at all costs. I just hate it. I don’t understand what the issue is.’
Naughty Boy had previously threatened to leave after feeling like an outsider, adding in the Bush Telegraph: ‘Shall we just say this is like a teething period? It just made me think, maybe we are the outsiders who have now come in.’
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here airs weekdays from 9pm on ITV.
