I’m A Celebrity’s Amir Khan’s 11 worst general knowledge fails – including his world map blunder and political gaffes

AMIR Khan’s epic brain blanks made hilarious viewing on I’m A Celebrity – and some of the gaps in his general knowledge are astounding.

From Prime Ministers to his daughter’s birthday, the former world boxing champion seemed to have a brain full of nothing, despite boasting about his six GCSEs. Here are his 11 finest general knowledge faux pas…

Amir Khan dealt several sucker-punches of ignorance on I’m A Celeb

1. Who is the Prime Minister?

Amir made ITV viewers fall off their sofas during a conversation about the UK leader – before dealing a rather sexist blow to women everywhere.

When Toff said she wanted to be Prime Minister of the camp, the boxer was heard saying: “Has a woman ever become Prime Minister?”.

He then added insult to injury by saying: “Could a woman be Prime Minister?”.

This revealed that he did not know the current Prime Minister is Theresa May, who took the leader role in July 2016, and he’d also forgotten the UK’s other female PM Margaret Thatcher.

2. What is Boris Johnson’s role in government?

Dim Amir became unlikely besties with former Tory politician Stanley Johnson in the jungle.

But on emerging from the show, he had no knowledge about what Boris Johnson – Stanley’s son – does in the current UK government.

Asked what Boris’ role is by The Sun, Amir reponded: “I know this one. Finance minister.”

The correct answer is Foreign Minister.

3. Who is next in line to the throne?

Asked who would be ascending the throne of Great Britain after the Queen dies, Amir said: “Prince William.

“I’ve met him and his wife at the Olympics and we talked about skipping.”

Amir is of course wrong about this, as Prince Charles – Wills’ dad – is next in line to the throne.

4. Who is the leader of the Labour party?

Unable to remember the current Tory Prime Minister, Amir was also at a loss when asked who was the leader of the Labour party.

Asked for a name, he said: “Give me a letter… Oh, no, I have no idea.”

Amir ought to have known the leader of the opposition is Jeremy Corbyn.

5. Where is Australia?

While on the show, Amir and Jamie Lomas – who’s in tonight’s final – were tasked with locating Australia on a giant map of the world.

Needless to say, the pair struggled – and took a whopping 20 minutes to find the large subequatorial country.

What Is Will Young Doing Now, What’s His Lgbt Homo Sapiens Podcast About And What Are His Hit Songs?




SINGER Will Young was a pioneer of reality TV pop industry success after his epic battle with Gareth Gates, but now he’s preferring life away from the limelight

Since becoming the first winner of Pop Idol, Will is no stranger to the reality TV circuit, but what do we know about the award-winning crooner?

Who is Will Young, how old is he and what’s his background?

Will Young is a 38-year-old British singer born January 20, 1979, in Wokingham.

He’s a twin and his brother, born ten minutes later than him, is called Rupert.

Will, who comes from a family with strong ties to the British government and the military, was a natural sportsman at school.

He then became interested in singing and performing while studying politics at the University of Exeter.

In his second year at uni in 1999, he saw a This Morning TV ad inviting viewers to audition for a boy band, which kicked off his journey to global fame.

How did Will Young find fame?

Originally Will’s audition for the This Morning contest saw him placed in a band with Lee Ryan, Andy Scott-Lee and Declan Bennett.

And while his boy band career was unsuccessful, but he’d impressed panellist Simon Cowell during his 1999 audition.

In 2001, Will applied for new TV show Pop Idol and successfully got through every round, despite initially underwhelming judges Simon Cowell, Nicki Chapman, Pete Waterman and Neil Fox.

Will clashed with Cowell throughout the series after the music boss kept giving his performances poor reviews.

Eventually, Will found himself in the final and just managed to best his rival Gareth Gates, getting 53.1 per cent on the phone vote overall.

Will Young’s beautiful voice got him to the top on Pop Idol

After winning the series, Will released double A-side single with Everygreen and Anything Is Possible, before his debut album came out in 2002.

Shortly after that he came out as gay and denied ever hiding the fact.

Will’s most famous hit Leave Right Now came out in 2003, and he’s also known for his cover of Light My Fire and his dance hit Jealousy.

To date Will has released six studio albums, with his most recent album from 2015 being the first he did not record for Sony.

What else has Will Young done with himself?

Will was supposed to be judging on the first series of The Voice UK in 2012 but was replaced by Danny O’Donoghue at the last minute.

However, he did make a major return to reality TV with Strictly Come Dancing in 2016, on which he was paired up with Strictly professional Karen Clifton.

Karen Clifton and Will Young were paired up for last year’s show

Sadly for Will, he pulled out of the series after three weeks, citing “personal reasons” for leaving, though many viewers suspected judge Len Goodman had something to do with it.

Meanwhile, his friends said Will’s anxiety caused him to quit, which makes sense as Will has spoken about his mental illness and addictive personality in the past.

He was also dumped by Island Records in 2016 just four years and one album into their working relationship.

But it isn’t all doom and gloom for the Will of recent years as he stunned critics in a stage production of Cabaret in 2012, which earned him a best newcomer award from What’s On Stage.

He’s also had screen roles in BBC film Mrs Henderson Presents, teen drama Skins and a Miss Marple mystery for telly called The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side.

The star supports numerous charities, ranging from the Prince’s Trust to Mencap and gAID, which fights domestic violence in homosexual relationships.
