Naughty Boy's family banned his mum from watching Tuesday night's (23.11.21) 'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!' episode.
The music producer's niece Aisha has told how the 36-year-old star's mum Zahida, who is suffering from dementia, didn't watch the episode earlier this week in which Naughty Boy got upset and admitted his time in the castle could be up.
Aisha said: "During the day, she is always like, 'Where is he?’, ‘Is her coming home?’ and we have to keep reminding her that no, he is on the show and she will see him on TV.
"We didn’t let her watch last night’s episode because we thought she would be really overwhelmed seeing him upset.
Naughty Boy's family blast trolls
Naughty Boy has been blasted online after threatening to quit 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!' but his family have urged viewers to be kind, explaining that the star is missing his mother Zahida, who has vascular dementia. They wrote on Twitter: "NB is a proud mummy’s boy because he has been caring for her for the last 5 years. "She suffers from vascular dementia and many other illnesses which has resulted in her needing 24 hour care. "He lacks a lot of self confidence and this is the first time he has left her - to do something for himself for the first time in years.
"Watching it she will get confused, especially if she saw him doing the trial, she would have been very, very distressed.
"Most nights, she will cheer, 'That is my son,' and she will talk to the TV, bless her."
Naughty Boy - whose real name is Shahid Khan - threatened to quit the show this week when the camps were divided, after he was chosen to do a trial by the main camp, believing he was picked because he was the "weakest link" in The Clink.
Aisha admitted she has been "worried" about her relative's mental state.
She added to The Sun Online: "I knew he would be fine but I have just been worried about his mental state because prior to the show starting, they are not just in there for a few days, they have been quarantining for two weeks as well so I can only imagine how overwhelmed he must feel being away from all us."
But on the last night's show, Naughty Boy seemed much happier as the two camps combined and he decided to stay in the show.
