The music producer said he ‘grew’ as a person and ‘overcame so many fears’ during his time on the show.
The 40-year-old music producer became the fourth celebrity contestant voted off the ITV series after 16 days in Castle Gwrych but admitted he came close to leaving the series while in camp Clink.
Following his exit, he reflected on his experience on the programme and said ‘he went in a Naughty boy and came out a good (one)’.
He told PA: ‘It was a journey that I didn’t expect. The best way for me to go in was with was zero expectations.
‘But the journey I’ve had, and the friends I’ve made and the experience, I feel like I grew in there. I grew in the way I handled things.

‘When I did the trials I overcame so many fears and I wasn’t expecting that, but I’m grateful.’
He admitted his last night in camp Clink was when he ‘wanted to leave the most’ but was glad he stuck it out as he said he would have regretted the decision, but now has ‘no regrets’ about his time on the show.
Discussing being voted for almost every Bushtucker Trial, he said: ‘I was thinking “I hope it’s because I’m entertaining them and not because they want to see me suffer”.’
‘That was the moment when I started really enjoying myself. That’s why with the trials I wasn’t overthinking it, I was just thinking “Don’t think about it, just do it”,’ he said.

‘I overcame so many fears – snakes, heights, enclosed spaces – and all these things that I thought that I’ve never overcome, so I’m grateful for that.’

Meanwhile, Naughty Boy had one of the most eventful appearances in the castle this year, and it looks like it’s paid off in more ways than one.
The star is only on the up as he’s set to earn an extra £250,000 next year according to PR agency 10Yetis. Not too shabby!
