What happened to Naughty Boy’s sister?

During I’m A Celebrity season 21, Naughty Boy said that when he was just eight years old, his little sister, Samaira, died after she was hit by a school bus.

Samaira was seven years old at the time of her death and, as per The Mirror, Naughty Boy’s older sister, Saira, said: “Our sister was only seven. They were really close and always played together. They were best buds.”

The loss still affects the Khan family today

The loss of Samaira is still felt by Naughty Boy and his family to this day. Due to Naughty Boy’s mother having dementia, she still thinks that her daughter is alive.

As per The Mirror, Zahida, 67, still asks to pick things up from the shop for Samaira.

Naughty Boy’s sister, Saira, added that she hoped that being in the I’m A Celeb camp and confiding in his campmates could almost be like therapy for her younger brother.
