I’m A Celebrity viewers think they’ve worked out the true identity of Kiosk Cledwyn.

Kiosk Kev’s Welsh cousin made his debut on the ITV reality show last night as campmates took on their first Castle Coin challenge, the Welsh version of the Dingo Dollar challenge stars took on in Australia.

Giovanna Fletcher and Hollie Arnold successfully completed their challenge and headed to Ye Olde Shoppe, where they were given the choice of Welsh cakes or Twiglets.

Handing over their cash to the grumpy man behind the counter, Giovanna and Hollie pointed out the picture of Kiosk Kev lying on the beach that was hung up inside the shop.

Kev had signed it “Good luck”.

Without cracking a smile, Cledwyn took the money and called into camp to pose a 50/50 question to the rest of the stars.

But when they got the answer wrong, Cledwyn slammed the shutter shut, sending Hollie and Giovanna back to camp empty handed.

After his on-screen debut, fans took to Twitter to share their theory on who Cledwyn really is.

Alongside a snap of British engineer Lieutenant Colonel Dick Strawbridge, one wrote: “Kiosk Cledwyn Face of Dick Strawbridge Voice of Rhod Gilbert”

A second asked: “Is Dick Strawbridge moon lighting as kiosk cledwyn”

And a third quipped: “Has anyone seen @dickstrawbridge and kiosk Cledwyn in the same room recently?”

While another joked: “looks like #DickStrawbridge got himself a side-hustle as #KioskCledwyn”

The pair do bear an uncanny resemblance to one another, especially when it comes to their bushy moustaches.

However, some people had other ideas.

One compared him to Richard Griffiths, who played Harry Potter’s uncle Vernon Dursley.

They tweeted: “why does kiosk cledwyn look like harry potters uncle”

Another suggested: “Kiosk Cledwyn looks like Alf Thompson off Postman Pat”

Whatever his true identity, he went down a treat with fans.

“Loving kiosk cledwyn,” one posted.

Before the show kicked off, insiders said it became obvious that flying Kiosk Kev over from Australia wasn’t possible.

A source told The Sun: “Obviously flying Kiosk Kev, who is played by a farmer called Mark Herlaar, to the UK was a no-go so they’ve cast Kiosk Cledwyn.

“The name is a bit of an in-joke and is a nod to Cledwyn Hughes, who was the Secretary of State for Wales in the late Sixties.”
