He’s set to make his debut on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! on Monday night.

And Anthony Mundine is sure to ruffle some serious feathers with his controversial views when he enters the South African jungle.

In an explosive interview with the Daily Telegraph, the 42-year-old, who converted to Islam in 1999, has condemned abortion, contraception, and homosexuality, while voicing support for polygamy.

‘You can have up to four wives done justly,’ he said, crediting both his Islamic faith and ‘aboriginal culture’ for allowing such a thing.

The former pro boxer, who is rumoured to have fathered seven children to four different women according to the Daily Telegraph, also said that he doesn’t believe in contraception, and that abortion is a ‘big no-no.’

On the subject of homosexuality, Anthony said yet again that his Islamic faith is against it.

‘That is what the creator (Allah) has set,’ he said. ‘These are his perimeters, not mine, and I follow them.’

The outspoken athlete plans to follow his devout Muslim beliefs while on I’m a Celeb, which includes praying five times a day and only eating halal food.

Anthony also said that he’s currently toying with a potential run for Prime Minister of Australia after seeing Donald Trump become the 45th President of the United States.

The boxer said he’d run as an independent with his own party, and that his main goal is to ‘improve indigenous Australia.’

The Sydney-born Aboriginal has made countless headlines for his controversial comments over the years, most notably in 2001 regarding the 9/11 terror attacks.

At the time, he said: ‘They call it an act of terrorism, but if you can understand religion, and our way of life, it’s not about terrorism. It’s about fighting for God’s law, and America’s brought it upon themselves.’

He later apologised for the remarks, claiming that they were taken out of context and clarifying that he was simply trying to make an anti-war statement that was then misconstrued.

The next Prime Minister? Anthony also said that he's currently toying with a potential run for Prime Minister of Australia after seeing Donald Trump become President
