The music producer - whose real name is Shahid Khan - said he was fine about leaving Gwrych Castle, as it meant he could speak to his mum.
After hugging the rest of the contestants and leaving the camp, he told hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly: “When you are in a situation like in the castle you can’t take anything personally.”
He said it had showed him “how to get on with people and support each other and not really take anything for granted”.
During his time on the ITV show, Naughty Boy entertained viewers with his frequent claim that he was leaving, and the fact he was nominated to do seven trials – more than anyone else.
He was the fifth celebrity to leave the camp, after Arlene Phillips, Kadeena Cox and Snoochie Shy were voted off.
TV presenter Richard Madeley also left after a trip to hospital to get checked out when he wasn’t well meant he had broken the COVID bubble and couldn’t go back in.
Naughty Boy said he believed that he had made his mum proud with his stint in the castle camp.
“I can’t wait to speak to everyone,” he said.
“I can’t wait to speak to Kadeena and Snoochie and Arlene – me and Arlene have got plans.”
