For a man of so few words, Kiosk Keith from I’m A Celeb always manages to cause quite a stir.
The silent, kiosk dwelling Aussie has become an unlikely sex-symbol – and even looks set to release a raunchy book rumoured to be entitled Fifty Shades of Kiosk Keith.
Kiosk Keith – real name Raymond – even received a cheeky wink from posh Made In Chelsea star Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo, who giggled and flirted her way through the ‘Dingo Dollar’ challenge.

However, the biggest surprise was when former campmate, Amir Khan, managed to get a smile out of the notoriously surly jungle trader, who even a mumbled a few – yet still audible – words.
Catching the Bigfoot-esque phenomenon on film, 31-year-old Amir messed around in front of the camera, saying:
Right guys, we’ve got someone here that you want to see, Kiosk Keith.
Speaking directly to Kiosk Keith, Amir joked:
I want to see them legs with those squats you’ve been doing.
Miraculously, a smile rose up from beneath his iconic moustache and Keith even offered a brief, faint greeting to his legions of adoring fans.
Awww, it’s like seeing the sun break from underneath a grey, hairy storm cloud. I for one wouldn’t be surprised if we saw snow fall in the I’m A Celeb jungle after this incident…
One person commented:
omg I can’t believe this guy smiles!
While another declared:
It’s a Christmas miracle!
However, some people felt like this encounter ruined the mysterious allure of the jungle man, with one person lamenting, ‘knowing what he sounds like ruins the magic’.

Speaking with The Sun, Kiosk Keith’s ex-wife Donna discussed a raunchy new book, which will put Kinky Keith at the centre:
They’re talking about some book, some 50 Shades of Kiosk Keith.
Donna joked about the saucy shack dweller’s sexual prowess:
[He said] Make sure you tell them I’m a good lover, I don’t care what else you tell them, just make sure you tell them I’m good in the cot.
I told him I wasn’t going to say that because he told me to only tell the truth so I couldn’t say that.
Donna also revealed how the father of four finds playing the part of Kiosk Keith ‘funny’:
He just thinks it’s funny. It’s just a joke. As far as he’s concerned, he’s an average father who goes to work, does Kiosk Keith and goes home.
Toff just now on extra camp, "Kiosk Keith….ooh what a minx, he's kind of sexy" ?

However, Donna’s teasing has not put Keith’s fans off from wanting to pay a visit to his kiosk. Indeed, the man with the moustache has women queuing around the jungle path, left in raptures by his grumpy, unimpressed demeanour.
One lady drooled:
Let’s be honest Kiosk Keith is such a handsome and sexy man!
While another swooned:
Kiosk Keith is so sexy in his apron.
It seems Keith is seriously bringing some extra heat to the jungle…
let’s be honest Kiosk Keith is such a handsome and sexy man! #imaceleb

No matter who wins this year, its clear Kiosk Keith is the true King of the Jungle.
