Amir Khan cut honeymoon short over snake fear

Share article:

Amir Khan cut his honeymoon short because he was terrified of snakes slithering over him in the night.

The 30-year-old professional boxer has been accused of faking his fear of creepy crawlies while taking part in "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!", but his wife Faryal Makhdoom is adamant his anxiety is all real and he actually refused to finish their holiday in Langkawi because he was scared of the reptiles.

Speaking on "This Morning" on Friday (08.12.17), Faryal said: "Everyone loves his screams. I couldn't imagine him around spiders and snakes. I wasn't surprised at all [about how scared he was]. I remember we went for our honeymoon, we went to Langkawi.

"We were told there could be snakes at night. We were meant to stay four nights but we only stayed one night! I didn't think he would last four days. So he's doing really well."

The brunette beauty initially felt sorry for her spouse because he was being put up for all of the trials but then she realised that the show was boring when he wasn't having much screen time.

She explained: "I felt so bad and I was praying he wouldn't get voted the next day, and he got voted again and again. But the days he's not doing the trials, I find it so boring. Nobody screams like him!"

The couple have had a rocky relationship over the past year - with accusations of affairs, details of family feuds and a recent pregnancy announcement - and fans were concerned that they were having issues again because Faryal decided not to fly out to Australia to support her husband.

But she said: "I'm not heavily pregnant quite yet. I'm quite petite, so I might show soon. [But] because I'm pregnant and I do feel a bit sick sometimes, it's a really long flight. So hopefully when Amir is back we can go on a shorter flight and go on holiday. After the jungle, I think he's going to need a holiday."
