HE’S GOT A knighthood, so the title ‘king of the castle’ should be in easy reach!

But I’m A Celeb’s Sir Mo Farah is not giving much a way.

When asked by the Journal if being a knight already puts him in good stead to win the 20th series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Sir Mo - laughed.

“This year it has never happened before over the years and, you know, I think everything happens for a reason and we have to make the most of it but at the same time, it is going to be in a nice castle and for me I have to enjoy it and not expect anything else.

"You are always expecting it is going to be incredible, you don’t have to go in with expectations and then it is far more easier to deal with in a way. I’m trying to not even think about it and just get myself in there and get to meet plenty of lovely people which I’m sure I will recognise some from somewhere.

"That is the exciting part.”

Sir Mo, 37, is the most decorated track and field athlete in modern Olympic Games history.

The double Olympic champion at the 2012 and 2016 Games, in both the 5000 and 10,000 metre races, admitted it has always been a goal of his to appear on the programme after watching it as a fan.

Asked what type of campmate he intends to be, and if he is out to cause mischief! Sir Mo replied: “I think it depends how much food they have given us and I think sometimes it is difficult when you haven’t got what you need.

“But I’m looking forward to it and just meeting some people rather than being by myself here now.”

Sir Mo, who has wife Tania and four children, said he hopes to get on with everyone.

“I’m just looking forward to meeting people that I know and seen before somewhere,” he added.

The reality that the show is taking place in wintry Wales this year, at Abergele’s Gwrych Castle, rather than the Australian jungle doesn’t phase Sir Mo.

He said: “The hot weather [in Australia] and everything else and for me obviously, that was an exciting part but due to Covid, and difficult times for all of us all round the world, when they said it is going to happen in Wales and I was like ok yeh I’m still up for it."
