With his grumpy demeanour and surly silence, I’m A Celebrity’s shop keeper, Kiosk Keith, was almost as famous as the stars he served.
Since his first appearance in the Outback Shack in 2013, the Aussie star – whose real name is Raymond Grant – won a cult following thanks to his role dishing out questions and prizes in the Dingo Dollar Challenge.
But he mysteriously disappeared part way through the 2017 series with hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly assuring fans he was under the weather and would be back.
He didn’t return though, and a woman called Kiosk Kath was instead drafted in to run the store – much to the disappointment of fans.
And in January 2018, show bosses confirmed Raymond had been sacked after he was accused of turning up drunk to work and behaving inappropriately towards a female colleague.
ITV said in a statement: “Ray is no longer under contract on the show. There are no plans for him to return this year.”
His ex-wife Donna was quick to defend him, claiming he slapped a girl on the bum but was no “sexual predator”.
“He’s being made out to be this horrible man when he really isn’t,” she said of her former husband, who had also worked building the I’m A Celebrity sets since 2002.
Then in the 2018 series, newbie Kiosk Kev arrived to take the reins, but what became of Kiosk Keith?
Last year the star – who was reportedly hand-picked for his role by Ant and Dec – was seen back on his farm in New South Wales.
In one field, his cows could be seen grazing around an abandoned ‘Y’ prop from the show’s set.
Raymond could also be seen starring into the bottom of a petrol cannister as he tried to get his tractor started.
And over on the Kiosk Keith Twitter account, a final sign off was given to fans at the end of 2018.
It read: “OK just read up that i’m no longer on the show for reasons i won’t say, you can find out yourself ffs.
“This account will no longer be used so enjoy this last tweet of mine.”
