Kiosk Keith was a staple as well i am a celebrity as Ant and Dec before he was reportedly fired from the show in 2017.
The Australian, whose real name is Raymond Grant, was the Outback Shack’s sole employee and greeted celebrity housemates with silence and a stony stare after they completed a Dingo Dollar challenge.
