Amir Khan glad to be evicted from British reality show

Amir Khan said he is glad to be evicted out from a British TV reality show after the boxer had been involved in a bullying scandal with comedian Iain Lee.
The Pakistan-origin boxer was voted out from I m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here due to not enough viewer votes. He was celebrating his 31st birthday when his time became over in the camp as he was the 7th participant to be evicted.
He was involved in a bullying scandal with British comedian and campmate in the show, Iain Lee. During the exit interview, he commented on the bullying in the show and said Lee has had a ‘hard time’ in the camp.
Both Khan and Lee had devoured the treat without their campmates. Khan had let Iain take the blame after which the comedian suffered.
Khan said, “I was scared. Iain, when he came into camp, he didn t have the best reputation. My teammates would never have expected me to do that. I put my hand up – Iain provoked me to do that.”
He told that “Poor Iain” provoked him to put the blame and maintain the reputation.
His wife Faryal Makhdoom – who recently patched up with him – is also excited to welcome her husband. She continuously supported him in the reality show.
British reports also claimed that the boxer didn t take his full fee from the show as he donated a part of his £300,000 show fee to a charity.
