Amir Khan Still Screaming, But Finding Success on 'I'm a Celeb'

As previously reported on, former world champion Amir Khan is taking part in the popular reality show “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!” - which is taking place in the Australian jungle. (photo by ITV/Rex/Shutterstock).

He failed his first I’m A Celebrity Bushtucker Trial after having to face his phobia – snakes. The boxer screamed in terror and shouted “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!” as he got a bit too close to one of the slithery creatures in the Critter-cal Rescue task.

Khan, 30, and campmate Georgia Toffolo were selected for the first Trial in a public vote.


As they discussed what it might entail, a worried Khan admitted: “It’s snakes and spiders I can’t deal with.”

But Khan was able to deal with spiders, as he took up another challenge in the "Fright House."

Despite some trouble with spiders, Amir ended up taking the victory.

"This is the Fright House, inside are a number of rooms and in each room you'll find two locked doors, one has a green frame and one has a blue frame" explained Dec. Beside each door are instructions on how to unlock the doors and move to the next room. The first celebrity to go through all the rooms and escape from the Fright House and ring the bell is the winner and will feed their camp tonight," Khan and the other contestants were instructed.

Amir got to the final room first, but screamed as he found it was full of spiders.

"I don't do spiders" he said.

But Khan managed to get all the keys, unlocked the three padlocks and left the Fright House to ring the bell, meaning he was the winner.

The Bolton star's antics and screams on the show, have quickly made him a fan favorite among the show's loyal viewers.

Khan has been inactive from boxing since May of 2016, when he moved up to a catch-weight of 155-pounds to challenge then WBC middleweight world champion Canelo Alvarez.

In what was the very first boxing event to take place at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena, Khan got off to a good start but he was knocked out cold in the sixth round. A date in February is now being explored, according to Khan.
