Even though he’s been left on the canvas a several times in his boxing career, Amir Khan felt an embarrassing knock out of a completely different kind thanks to a snake on last night’s episode of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
Khan, who has an admitted fear of the creatures, drew massive public criticism for leaving the camp without food after quitting just minutes into his first Bushtucker Trial when he accidently pulled a snake out of a hole instead of a key meant to help free campmate Georgia Toffolo.
The Made In Chelsea star was furious with the former world champion in the aftermath saying “Why did you say that? We’re not going to eat”, while hosts Ant and Dec couldn’t contain their laughter as Khan screamed in horror.
Following a pull-out David Haye would be proud of, our traders have made just 5/4 to have to tackle every Bushtucker Trial he’s cleared for while he remains in the jungle. That comes after he was choose by the public again to face tonight’s second trail – delightfully entitled ‘Flushed Out’.

Meanwhile, Toffolo is the new favourite to win the series at 3/1, having been out at 7/1 on Sunday morning and she’s followed in the betting by Stanley Johnson at 4/1 and Coronation Street star Jennie McAlpine (5/1). Khan for his part, is a punchy 14/1 shot to claim the crown.

Asked about Khan’s performances in the jungle so far, spokesman Paddy Power said: “Amir might fancy himself as the King of the Jungle, but all he’s done is make a right royal mess of things so far.”
“He may be trying to slither into the hearts of the nation, but we reckon his time on I’m A Celeb will be wrapped up fairly soon.”
