Amir Khan to get his own reality show after I’m A Celebrity?
Amir Khan is rumoured to be getting his own reality TV show following I’m A Celebrity.
The boxer appeared on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here last year and proved to be a rather ‘unique’ character.
Now he’s said to be in talks for a fly-on-the-wall reality series with wife Faryal Makhdoom.
The couple, who are currently expecting their second child together, have been regularly in the tabloid headlines following a messy break up last year before recoupling.
“ITV bosses think he’d make more great telly if he did a fly-on-the-wall series with them,” a source told The Sun newspaper this week. “He’s a character and they think viewers would be very interested in seeing how he is with Faryal and their daughter behind closed doors.
“It’s very early days in terms, but there seems to be interest on both sides.”
Amir’s antics on I’m A Celebrity last year ranged from strawberry gate to more serious allegations of ‘bullying’.
A number of the show’s cast were caught up in the claims after clashes with Iain Lee in camp.
At the time, Amir said: “I’ve never bullied Iain in any way, it’s the opposite, I would be the one to put my arm around him and tell him not to worry. I would always walk with him and talk to him about life, I wanted to make him feel better.
“So to be cast as the bad guy has really hurt and upset me.”
Amir finished fifth on the series, lasting 20 days in the jungle.
