The boxer made the confession in the Bush Telegraph after advising Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo how best to cook the meal they had won after successfully completing Thursday’s Bushtucker Trial – which saw them down a series of disgusting drinks.
After Toff got to work on cooking the squab, Amir suggested they ‘boil it then fry it’ before also suggesting they ‘boil the mushrooms’ that came with their food package – a cooking tip that didn’t sit well with Toff.
And it seems there is a reason why Amir isn’t blessed with culinary skills – he has female relatives who will do the cooking for him!
Explaining his lack of cooking knowledge in the Bush Telegraph, Amir said: ‘I never really cook at home, I’ve got my sisters, got my wife, got my mum.’
His admission did not go down well with viewers at home, many of whom branded him ‘sexist’ for his comments.
‘How #sexist is #AmirKhan I don’t cook as I’ve got my Mum wife and sister…’ raged one person on Twitter.
While another said: ‘I never really cook at home I got my sister’s, got my wife got my mum” – Amir Khan ….Smh’
‘And in 18th century I’m A Celeb Amir doesn’t do any cooking at home – because he’s got his sisters, his wife and his mum. I hope they eat all the food and tell him he got the answer wrong’, another suggested, referring to the previous episode that saw him tricking the camp into believing he and Iain Lee failed their Dingo Dollar Challenge, when they actually won strawberries and ate them all.
Along with his confession, it was noted that Amir mentioned his formally-estranged pregnant wife Faryal Makhdoom, whom he recently reunited with after a very public spat on Twitter.
Amir accused Faryal, 26, of having an affair with boxer Anthony Joshua, something Faryal has denied, and after filling for divorce, the couple now appear to be giving their marriage another go, sharing loved-up images on social media.
Faryal is due to give birth to their second child in April 2018.
