I'm A Celebrity's Nick Knowles defended by son over claims he's 'faking' nice guy persona to win jungle crownDecember 4, 2018
A number of fans of the jungle reality series have taken to social media, posting messages slamming Nick, 56, as they believe he is being kinder to his fellow contestants than he would other people in the outside world in a bid to get further on the programme.
But Charles, 25, who recently arrived in Australia with his brother TJ to support his dad, insists people should have faith in his parent and realises that Nick putting himself in front of such a large audience is bound to bring criticism.
He told the Daily Mirror: "There will always be a negative side when someone is being nice and kind to people. That’s the line of work he is in.
"We know this is how dad is and he will always help others. Even if others doubt him for doing it. He always says you don’t do things for a medal you do it because it’s the right thing to do!
"Dad’s just being dad. He’s caring, kind and always puts others before himself."
Charles went on to say Nick should be crowned King of the Jungle as he has "put everyone above him" and has been "a true leader for others".
Nick chose to take a special pillow into camp as his luxury item but instantly gave it up to The Chase quiz legend Anne Hegerty, 60, despite experiencing back pain in bed.
He also volunteered not to attend a feast when one person had to step down from the table after a Bushtucker Trial because not enough stars were won.
But, despite some viewers not warming to Nick, his fellow campmate Flear East has.

The the singer made the revelation during a game of who she and some of her other fellow jungle contestants would snog, marry or push over a cliff.
Singer Fleur was doing her chores with actress Emily Atack, 28, and 30-year-old Coronation Street star Sair Khan at the creek whilst quizzing each other on who they were attracted to.
Sax warbler Fleur was asked by Emily to give her preferences between The Vamps star James McVey, Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer and broadcaster Nick.
Fleur declared: “I would snog Nick,” prompting Emily and Said to squeal: “Ew!”
The musician added: “I would marry James because he’s a lovely boy and then I would push Malique off a cliff because he’s my brother and I couldn’t kiss or marry him.”

Meanwhile, Emily announced: “I would snog Malique, marry James and Nick is off the cliff, just because he’s slightly too old for me but he is handsome and lovely.”
Sair was asked to pick between former football manager Harry Redknapp, actor John Barrowman and TV legend Noel Edmonds.
She responded: “I would snog Noel,” prompting Rita Simons to descend into hysterics and scream: “No!”
The conversation then took a slightly different angle as Emily then asked Fleur to choose from the females.
She said: “So it’s me, Sair and Rita that’s all there is.”
Fleur replied: “I would snog Emily, marry Sair and Rita’s gone mate and if I snogged her I think I would have troubles, she’d keep hounding me!”
