"With family members, I just text them pictures of things I like and say, 'Get me one of these things', so Christmas I'm quite lucky and tend to get something dead nice," he told us.

"I've started collecting skateboard decks and put them up in my office so I might get one of them."

He added: "But the shittest present I ever got, was from one of my mates, and I was so disgusted with the absolute shit he bought me, he didn't get me anything, he just wrapped up some toast.

"My mates do that sometimes, like wrap up a Scotch Egg for me or something, but I actually like a Scotch Egg so that's a nice present.

"Two pieces of cruddy toast! But I am very lucky normally. Sometimes I just get something and say, 'You've bought me this for Christmas'."

He added: "With my mum I go, 'This is what you've bought me', then she offers to put money in my bank and I tell her not to bother."

The latest series of Celebrity Juice saw former Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack and Love Island's Laura Whitmore take over as team captains.

Despite Emily being rumoured for the role before, Keith admitted she had "never been in the running" for the job previously.

"It's always about mates, Juice," he said. "When Fearne [Cotton] left, me and Holly [Willoughby] just went straight away, 'Should it be Paddy [McGuinness]', because we're all friends.

"Then he got busy with Top Gear and then I got told, 'What do you think of Michelle Keegan or Mel B?' I said they were both wicked.

"Mel B turned up, then she got busy with Spice Girls, so it was like a rebrand almost."

But he added the new team captains "are just up for it and having a laugh so I feel they will just breathe new life into it".

Celebrity Juice is available to watch on the ITVHub.
