Newcomer Kiosk Cledwyn made his debut on this year’s season of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! replacing crowd favourite Kiosk Kev.
The Welshman, who insiders claim to be named after the late local politician Cledwyn Hughes, first appeared during Tuesday’s episode (17 November) after Giovanna Fletcher and Hollie Arnold successfully completed the Castle Coin Challenge – which has replaced the Dingo Dollar Challenge in previous seasons.
With Kiosk Cledwyn already making a mark outside the castle by featuring in a Tesco advert, rumours are circulating about who the man behind the moustache is.
Some fans have pointed out that Cledwyn bears a close resemblance to British engineer Lieutenant Colonel Dick Strawbridge from Channel Four’s Escape to the Chateau.
ITV has not yet revealed the actor who portrays the silent owner of Ye Olde Shoppe, however, the show has previously recruited a member of the production crew as well as an unknown local in the role, so anyone is possible.
Whether Kiosk Cledwyn returns in next year’s series is still up in the air. It is likely to be decided by whether I’m a Celeb stays in Wales or returns to its usual Australian outback setting in 2021.
If the series does return down under, chances are Kiosk Kev will be back on our screens.
The Australian, whose real name is Raymond Grant, was allegedly fired due to an alcohol problem and inappropriate behaviour towards a female colleague.
I’m a Celeb airs on ITV at 9pm.
