I’M a Celebrity star Naughty Boy once had a close working relationship with Zayn Malik – until the pair had a huge falling-out on social media.

Naughty Boy – real name Shahid Khan – and former One Direction member Zayn, 28, got into a huge argument online over who was responsible for leaked demos of Zayn’s solo music.

Shortly after Zayn’s exit from One Direction, Naughty Boy posted a clip on Twitter of him singing a new track and added #Zaughty, indicating to fans that a collaboration was coming.

But a couple of months later Zayn lashed out, writing: “@NaughtyBoyMusic You fat joke stop pretending we’re friends no one knows you.”

He later added cryptically: “Someone learned how to upload a video… maybe now he should learn how to use logic ha you ain’t sh** but a faker.”

Naughty Boy, 36, addressed Zayn’s tweets in an interview with The Sun, telling us at the time: “That’s not how I know Zayn to speak, even face to face. I definitely thought at first that he had been hacked.

“The fat joke thing wasn’t necessary and he’s getting a lot of backlash for that because a lot of his fans don’t look like Selena Gomez.”

However it seems it wasn’t long before the two made up as, during an appearance on Celebrity Juice two years later, Naughty Boy defended Zayn’s decision to quit One Direction.

He said: “Zayn’s in a great place. Zayn left for his own personal reasons and one day people will know everything. Right now is not the time.”

Host Keith Lemon then pointed out Naughty Boy’s Twitter spat with another member of 1D, who criticised a photo he uploaded with Zayn.

Keith said: “But Louis dissed your Mac filter photo. He said, ‘Remember when you were 12 and you used to think those Mac filters for your pictures were cool… Some people still do.”

He added to an awkward-looking Naughty Boy: “Then you replied to Louis, ‘And some people can’t even sing. But who’s complaining when there’s autotune, eh?’”

Naughty Boy is currently taking part in this year’s I’m a Celebrity, alongside stars including Richard Madeley and Snoochie Shy.
