Amir Khan once teased us all about taking his talents to the octagon, but what he’ll actually be doing is taking them to the jungle where he hopes to survive the reality series “I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!”

Khan’s stint on the TV show begins this weekend on ITV while he mentions his fears of spiders and other creepy-crawlies. He certainly be seeing plenty of those things, so it might be worth tuning in just to see Khan scream like a prepubescent girl.

And one person who will definitely be tuning-in is bitter rival Kell Brook, who teased that Khan secluded himself just to get away from him.

"I think he's travelled over to the other end of the world to get away from me," Brook exclusively told Sky Sports. "The next thing he'll be saying is, if Kell comes to the jungle and lasts longer than he does, he'll fight me then!

"I'll be voting for him to eat some kangaroo testicles, or something like that. I'll make sure that he has to do something for avoiding the fight with me."

Well then...this could get mildly entertaining. And here I was thinking that just seeing Khan in his safari attire would be funny enough.
