As usual, the campers were cooking their rice and beans for the evening in the Main Camp – but the seemingly uncontroversial task quickly became what will henceforth be known as Rice Gate.

The contestants were talking about classic British dessert rice pudding when Naughty Boy told the Bush Telegraph: "I'm quite passionate about cooking and maybe this isn't the place to be passionate about cooking. I don't want to be the one who says it, I'm just being real, it's not rice."

"Rice pudding is supposed to be a sweet dish," he later told Danny. "That was difficult for me to eat. It's not supposed to be rice pudding, it's supposed to be rice that goes with beans."

Naughty was offended by her calling it "our camp", telling her: "Don't say things like you came to 'our' camp."

The altercation resulted in Frankie leaving the situation upset, and telling Kadeena through tears: "Why can no one talk about rice in here? I can't deal with it."
