Keith appeared on the sister-show to the main event.
He joined a panel of celebrities to discuss the goings on in the jungle.
Some of the contestants providing the talking points that year included Helen Flanagan, Rosemary Schrager, Hugo Taylor, David Haye, Ashley Roberts and the winner, Charlie Brooks.
Keith and his son, Jay were contestants on the gameshow that offered the chance to win £100,000 for charity. The aim is to complete 5 challenges in five minutes before a large hourglass full of the prize money starts to drain away.
The game works in pairs - one contestant takes on the challenges (In this case; Keith) and the other chooses the category and the amount of time spent on each one (Jay). If the contestant seems to be struggling on one particular category, the timekeeper can press the emergency stop button before too much money is lost and try another game instead. However, that button can only be
Keith and Jay's game started with the category, 'Music Nut.' Keith was shown a reflection of a famous popstar's name; it was his job to identify that name and the band they were part of. Jay gave him 50 seconds to get 5 right but with a couple of seconds to spare, Keith was struggling so Jay pressed the emergency stop, managing to retain £100,000 in the hourglass.
The emergency game randomly picked was 'Movie Goer' and Keith was given the same amount of time to try and complete it (50 seconds). This time, he had to identify a fictional character from clues in a tweet. After a difficult time reaching the 5 right answers required, they were down to £49,993 in the hourglass.
In 'Well Travelled;' Keith had another 50 seconds to identify the country visited via stamps featuring an international city or airport. At the end of that round, the hourglass was down to £17,699
Jay gave Keith 60 seconds to do 'Wordsmith' - this included having to put a series of 5 numbers into alphabetical order. As he had to do this five times correctly to complete it, it proved a difficult task within the alloted seconds and it ended when the hourglass ran out of money (Cash Out). The programme still gave £5,000 to Keith and Jay's chosen charity; 'Irish Autism Action.'
