I'm A Celebrity's Kiosk Keith has been replaced ahead of the new series.

Fan favourite Kiosk Keith, who used to run the jungle's Outback Shack, has been a regular on the ITV show for the past four years.

But it was reported earlier this year that he had been let go after allegations of "inappropriate behaviour".

ITV confirmed that Kiosk Keith - real name Raymond - would no longer be appearing on I'm A Celebrity in the UK.

"Ray is no longer under contract on the show," they said. In a statement, the channel added: "There are no plans for him to return this year.”

Taking over the role will be Kiosk Kev who looks just as menacing but sports a big, bushy beard.

ITV said: "Kev won't take any nonsense from the celebrities, and he looks very intimidating!

"The celebs from previous series who thought Kiosk Keith was scary won't know how lucky they were - Kiosk Kev is truly terrifying."

Meanwhile, a source shared to The Sun newspaper: "Everyone on set is really pleased with the new Kiosk Kev character - his look has to be seen to be believed. Viewers will love him but the celebrities will be scared stiff! Like Kiosk Keith, Kev is a man of few words and doesn't speak."

The new series of I'm A Celebrity begins on Sunday, November 18 at 9PM on ITV.

The ten celebrities confirmed to be heading into the Jungle for the latest season include EastEnders actor Rita Simons, TV presenter Nick Knowles, The Inbetweeners star Emily Atack and The X Factor runner up Fleur East.

Joining them are The Vamps singer James McVey, The Chase's 'The Governess' Anne Hegerty and Football manager Harry Redknapp.

Completing the line up - for now - are Coronation Street's Sair Khan, Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer and Actor John Barrowman.

Holly Willoughby will host the show this year alongside Dec, as Ant takes a year out.
