I’m a Celebrity: Poh Ling Yeow’s awkward meeting with Prince Charles

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star Poh Ling Yeow reveals she once had an EXTREMELY awkward meeting with Prince Charles


MasterChef star Poh Ling Yeow has revealed she once had a very awkward conversation with Prince Charles.

In a teaser for Wednesday’s episode of I’m a Celebrity, the 49-year-old said she once attended a dinner party with the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, where she found herself seated next to Charles.

She told her campmates their exchange left her rather red-faced.

Poh said she was discussing architecture with the 73-year-old royal when their otherwise polite conversation veered completely off course.

‘I got sat next to him, so I made sure I knew what he likes, I know he likes architecture so we mainly bantered about that,’ she recounted.

‘But then out of the blue, I decide to use the word “dag”, and he goes, “Oh, what does that mean?” And I thought, oh this is happening.’

Poh revealed she didn’t hold anything back, and gave the prince a rather graphic description of what the word ‘dag’ actually means.

‘I go, “It’s kind of the dreadlock of poo that hangs off a sheep’s bum.” And he goes, “Well, you learn something new every day, don’t you,”‘ she continued.

Poh entered the jungle on I’m A Celebrity on Monday, and admitted she was ‘petrified’ ahead of her appearance on the hit reality show.

‘Number one question has been WHY? Well, I try to Iive by a “feel the fear and still do it” mantra and it seems to work,’ she wrote on Instagram on Monday. 

‘Firstly, I watched last season religiously and honestly have not cacked myself so hard in the longest time…’

She added: ‘What’s to learn from life if you only engage with things familiar and comforting? It’s the sapling that’s weathered the storm which grows big and strong! Enjoy peeps!!! Strap in – it’s a wild ride!’
