I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star Ash Williams may have only been in the jungle for a few nights but he’s already spilling the beans on a bizarre gig from his past that saw him earn money selling photos of his feet.

The actor and podcaster made the jaw-dropping admission in Monday night’s episode of the Channel 10 show in front of fellow contestants Abbie Chatfield, Grant Denyer and Jack Vidgen.

Feet first

“Have you sold feet pics?” Bachelor 2019 runner-up Abbie asked Ash, to which he replied, “Yeah.”

“I stopped doing it [selling photos of his feet] because this guy was just on me,” he explained as his camp mates giggled.

“‘Hey Foot King, do you feel like sending photos of your feet?’” he recalled the eager buyer asking him.

Ash added that another reason he quit the foot photo game was that the man wanted “more artistic direction” on the photography.

Sole mate

“They love soles. That is the crème de la crème,” Ash revealed.

“If you show your soles... that's it. It's just the best part of the foot. You never show soles first,” he deadpanned.

Needless to say, the admission left Abbie, Grant and Jack in fits of laughter, with former Family Feud host Grant joking that Ash should’ve “hired a smoke machine” to up the ante during his foot photoshoots.

Ash’s foray into the foot photo subculture appears to have started back in February 2018 when he received a request from ‘a guy’ who DM’d him asking for a snap of his tootsies.

“This foot pic stuff has escalated quickly,” Ash shared on Instagram along with photos of his bare feet and screenshots of the conversation with the man.

“I have no idea which dude was messaging me last night but a deal is a deal. I am now considering becoming a full time ‘foot stripper’. The barefoot investor would be proud,” he quipped.

According to their messages, the pair agreed on a payment of $50 per foot however it’s not known if the deal went through.

Also in 2018, Ash was crowned 'Winner of best feet' by an Instagram account called @mcfeetfacefeety.

That’s not the end of the story, as 30 snaps of Ash and his feet are still visible on WikiFeet.com, a website that’s been dubbed the ‘OnlyFans of feet’.

Ash’s profile lists him as having a US shoe size 12 and an impressive 4.5/5 star rating.

The photos range from fairly innocent, such as Ash’s feet dangling by a pool, to rather racy such as the Christmas-themed nude shot where he sports nothing but a Santa hat and a present to protect his modesty.

There are also several screenshots from a 2012 ‘tickling video’ that sees an underwear-clad Ash strapped to a table with leather restraints while being tickled on his feet.

According to Metro, WikiFeet was created in 2008 by Israeli freelance programmer Eli Ozer who claims that the site is “not meant for hard fetishists”.
