Im A Celebs Babatunde Aléshé is fifth star sent home from jungle

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! viewers have sent another campmate packing as Babatunde Aléshé became the fifth celebrity to be sent across the bridge.

Show hosts Ant and Dec revealed that the two celebs with the lowest number of votes were Babatunde and Seann Walsh, with Babatunde being the one to ultimately face eviction.

Babatunde said farewell to his new pals before going to discuss his time on the show with Ant and Dec, whom he seem excited to speak to.

In his leaving speech to camp, he said: "You guys have made me feel brave. I've conquered two of my biggest fears, which is frogs. I know it's hilarious but I frickin hate those little demons, and heights.

"And every single last one of you, I'm going to, you know, cherish for the rest of my life. This has been the best experience I've ever had. Thank you to everybody."


Speaking to Ant and Dec, Babatunde said that he feels "blessed" to have had the experience, before accidentally spilling his drink over himself, just after stating he was excited to be able to drink alcohol again.

He said: "Don't get twisted. I loved it in there, but I needed my freedom.

"It has been crazy, being in it is a different experience to watching at home. Spending two and a bit weeks in there it is hardcore. The hunger, all we do is talk about food."

He also backed Owen Warner to win the show, calling the Hollyoaks actor a "brave soul".

He said: "Owen, he is brave. He is a brave soul and he is a good, good friend. I can say so much, he was my closest friend in there."

The 36-year-old comedian follows Boy George, Sue Cleaver, Charlene White and Scarlette Douglas who have already left the jungle.

With only a few more days to go in the jungle, the campmates are gearing up for their long walk across the bridge, with the King or Queen of the jungle being crowned in Sunday night's movie-length final.

Last night's episode saw pop icon Boy George depart the jungle, in an eviction which Ant and Dec say left them feeling "gutted."

Taking part in an Instagram live video after the show, hosts Ant and Dec jokingly blasted viewers for getting rid of Boy George.

Show co-host Ant McPartlin said: "What a goddamn shame, I really enjoyed Boy George in there, I loved him. I thought he was really good fun.

"It is easy to say he stirs things up but at least he does stuff down there. He is a bit controversial but at least he had a word about people and he made me laugh. No one is on my wavelength."

Raising his voice on Instagram, Ant then shouted at the camera: "What were you thinking man! What were you thinking, why did you do that, it is all your fault. I liked Boy George."

To which Dec said: "He was at the centre of a lot of the fun and conversation. I loved his and Seann's conversation. I am gutted."

According to betting company William Hill the current favourite to win is Hollyoaks star Owen Warner.

Commenting on the I’m A Celebrity odds, spokesperson for William Hill Lee Phelps said: “Owen has become one of the most popular contestants in this year’s series with viewers loving his honesty and sense of humour around the camp.

“It is clear that his campmates hold him in very high regard as well, as many keep saying they want to keep him well fed with Owen constantly saying he’s hungry."
