I'm A Celeb fans in disbelief as Naughty Boy reveals he played Backgammon with Beyoncé
I'm A Celebrity fans have finally found out how Naughty Boy met Beyoncé.
The music producer collaborated with the pop star on their track Runnin' (Lose It All) and he finally told the rest of the camp - and the viewing public at home - how he connected with the singer and they ended up working on the song.
Naughty revealed he had met Beyoncé and Jay-Z in Beverley Hills when the celeb couple were playing Backgammon.
Speaking on the ITV show, he said: "I’d met her in Beverly Hills – and Jay-Z … I think they were playing Backgammon.
"Fast forward about 5/6 months, she wanted to speak to me. She got my number from the label and called me."
However, he confessed he "didn't even believe" she wanted to speak to him, as he added: "Obviously I didn’t believe it. But this is why she’s a Queen. She wanted to speak to me directly."
He was driving with a friend at the time and they quickly pulled over so he could take a call with the star.
"My friend was driving, we stopped at a service station because I had the call come in. It was her, it was the Queen, Queen B," he explained to his fellow campmates, "After the call I was just like, 'Store this number!' I saved it as 'Queen B.'"
Naughty went on to praise the pop star for being "so caring" and insisted there was no "diva" quality to her.
He said: "She’s so caring and so exactly what you’d expect her to be. No diva-ness."
The music producer had previously revealed him and Beyoncé have a "spiritual alignment".
"I'm into spiritual numbers and so's she. Her number is four and mine is 11. It just felt like there was an alignment," he told Newsbeat back in 2015, "I blame the universe. Nobody actually expected it to happen. Arrow [Benjamin] wrote the song. When I heard it, it was the same time Beyoncé heard it. It just worked out as a perfect triangle and we all collaborated on it."
He added: "She sings that song like it's just hers. When Arrow comes in, he does the same thing. In this day and age you wouldn't expect someone like Beyoncé to just jump on a track."
