Amir Khan gets his meals prepared separately by a chef in the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' camp.

The camp mates jump for joy when they see the green bag containing their ingredients for dinner dangling down above the fire whenever they win a Bushtucker Trial, but the 30-year-old professional boxer - who is muslim and therefore only eats halal food, doesn't have the same reaction as he's given something different.

A message shared on Amir's official Twitter account confirmed to his 2.29 million followers: "Amir is provided with a Halal option whenever the camp win food #TeamAK. (sic)"

And, although Amir has been getting stuck into the Bushtucker Trials - mainly because he's being nominated for them - since he entered the jungle a week and a half ago, his wife Faryal Makhdoom thinks he looks depressed and only hopes viewers get to see the "real side" to her husband and "like" him.

The 26-year-old beauty said: "He's a good guy and I'm glad he's on TV so people can see the real side of him. Sometimes people judge you without knowing you. Amir seems depressed and quiet but I think he's liked."

Although the sporting ace has acquired a string of awards for his ability in the ring - as he is the former unified light-welterweight world champion and has held the WBA title for three years up until 2012 - Faryal has admitted her lover is not "very strong" when it comes to insects as he is "really scared" of harmless spiders.

Faryal - who has three-year-old daughter Lamaisah and is expecting her second child with Amir - said: "Even in the house if there's a spider in the window, we call each other.

"He's very strong in boxing but not when it comes to insects. He is really scared of spiders so I hope he does a good job. I hope people see what a good guy he is."
