Snoochie Shy has already brought the laughs by being very open with her fears and also taking on the trials head-on.

However, the radio DJ has also brought the emotion as well, getting upset that she could not bring home a meal for her team after facing off with Emmerdale star Danny Miller.

Yet, Snoochie is proving herself very capable despite thinking she would have fears going in.

Snoochie said before entering the Castle: “My mum keeps laughing, as she knows I am such a scaredy-cat!

“Bugs and I are not friends, I don’t like heights and I am claustrophobic too.

“But that all said, one of the things I am most looking forward to about doing this programme is the Trials! They are all crazy.”

So, who exactly is Snoochie Shy and what is her real name? Read on to find out more about the I’m A Celebrity 2021 star.

Snoochie Shy is a BBC Radio DJ who landed her own 1Xtra late-night slot two years ago and is now looking for a new challenge – this time in the form of a gruesome trial.

The 29-year-old has also modelled for top brands such as Nike, Adidas, Ugg, Warehouse and Vans, and is currently the ambassador for Sleep make-up and digital platform VOXI.

She isn’t a stranger to reality TV after appearing on Celebrity Gogglebox in 2021 alongside Jeremy Vine.

As you might have guessed, Snoochie Shy is a stage name. The Radio 1Xtra host’s real name is Cheyenne Davide.

Ahead of her appearance in the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! castle, Snoochie revealed that her stage name now means ‘flaccid, emaciated carrot’ – which was not the intended effect.

Speaking to The Mirror, she explained: “My nan used to call me Snoochie, and it just stuck with me. I should have Googled it first, because in the Urban Dictionary it’s ‘a flaccid, emaciated carrot found in the refrigerator’ – but by Snoochie my nan meant ‘cute’.

“And Shy – my real name is Cheyenne. I am a little bit shy as well. I’m quite loud on my Insta and in work. But in camp I might be a little bit shy as well.”

What has Snoochie Shy said about joining I’m A Celebrity 2021?

Ahead of joining I’m A Celebrity 2021, Shy admitted that she is a massive “scaredy-cat” and is terrified of almost everything.

Shy might have many fears, but her biggest worry ahead of joining I’m A Celeb remained the trials – and all the creepy crawlies that come in tow.

Snoochie said: “That trial is my big fear. I’ve seen bugs go up people’s noses before and I am scared bugs are going to go up my private parts. But I am excited about taking part and as soon as they asked me to come on the show, I said yes.”

Shy is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Jordan North – who was also scared of pretty much everything – after he finished as runner-up on I’m A Celebrity 2020.

“I saw him vomit on top of the mountain and I can relate to that as it was very high,” she said.

She added: “I am actually quite a shy person when I am outside my comfort zone.

“I think my shy side might come out and I might be quite shy in the first couple of days but I also will definitely be a team player. I want to show everyone how to twerk too!”
