It’s claimed that the 52 year old, who’s real name is Raymond Grant, had his employment with the show terminated after reportedly turning up drunk to work and making unwanted advances towards a female colleague. 

Sources claim that the female crew member complained to ITV bosses about his alleged behaviour, causing him to be fired. 

And now, speaking to The Sun Online, Keith’s ex-wife Donna said that he was dismissed from the popular show after “touching the bottom of a female co-worker.”

Donna said: “Keith wasn’t on the bus when it happened, it was during a wrap party.

“They were sitting around and having a few drinks. Keith saw the girl walked by and gave her a tap on the a**e. There was nothing sinister in it but he shouldn’t have done it.”

An ITV spokesperson confirmed to OK! Online that Kiosk Keith will not be appearing on the show again.

In a statement the channel said: “Ray is no longer under contract on the show. There are no plans for him to return this year.”

Kiosk Keith was a fan favourite on the show and has made appearances since 2013. 

He held the role of the surly faced shopkeeper who runs the jungle kiosk on the show, and was one of the only faces to return to the ITV show each year, along with hosts Ant and Dec and Medic Bob.

In real life, Raymond is reportedly a builder who works in the art team building the back drops on set, and he is also a father-of-four. 

OK! Online has contacted an I’m A Celebrity spokesperson for further comment.

Raymond Grant was unavailable for comment.
