Looks like Amir Khan will be a part of a reality TV show after all.
But not the one we expected!
The boxer landed in Brisbane, Australia on Saturday and speculations arose about whether he travelled to be a part of the popular reality show I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! what with his arrival being around a week before the series begins.
This is the time when photographers are at Brisbane airport to keep an eye out for celebrities that land there. He also seemed very well-kempt after a 23-hour flight... almost as if expecting photographers. Hmmm...
Sports reporters and blogs are already announcing the news on social media.
I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! is a reality show that features 12 celebrities living together in a jungle environment for three weeks. The celebrities perform tasks and have to compete to be crowned the jungle king or queen. Basically a Jumanji Bigg Boss.
Amir Khan had earlier spoken about the possibility of ruling out such shows due to his Muslim beliefs, and had remained quiet over the weekend over whether he would actually be partaking or not.
However, according to Daily Star, Amir spoke today about taking part in the show.
Said Amir, "I want to fight three times next year. King of the Jungle? I don’t know about that yet but king of the ring suits me better. I am always training and I am gonna be training in the jungle too."
