I’m A Celebrity first look: Terrified Babatunde Aleshe frozen in fear as he takes on trial in pouring rain


I’M A Celebrity’s Babatunde Aleshe looks completely terrified as he takes on tonight’s trial.

The Gogglebox star was voted by the cruel public to do Horrifying Heights, despite already showing he has a crippling fear of heights.

In the first look from tonight’s action-packed episode, Babatunde is seen almost frozen in fear as he stands on a ring suspended in the air.

The rain is lashing down around him as he struggles to see what he is doing.

The ring then starts spinning, as Babatunde exclaims: “Oh my god”.

It’s unclear if the comedian will be able to face his fears and collect any stars for camp.

It comes just days after he refused to walk the plank in the first task of the series.

The Walk The Plank trial is a fan favourite amongst viewers of the ITV reality show, and was renamed The Ledge for this year’s series.

The task tests the celebs to their limits at the start of what will surely be a challenging few weeks in the jungle.

The celebs were strapped into harnesses and suspended from a 32-storey building as conditions were hampered by strong winds.

Lioness Jill Scott, 35, and Newsreader and Loose Women anchor Charlene White, 42, took the terrifying plunge as they were seen suspended in mid-air.

But HOAR revealed  Babatunde dramatically pulled out of the vertigo-inducing challenge after a full 45 minutes of deliberation.

As the stars were strapped into their harnesses, onlookers revealed how nervous everyone looked.

But as Charlene and Jill calmly walked out to the tip of the plank – Babatunde was left standing with his head in his hands.

An onlooker said: “Babatunde was really struggling during The Ledge, and everyone felt for him.

“It truly is a terrifying task and no one can grasp the scale of it until you are there.

“Jill and Charlene were being really encouraging of Babatunde but to no avail.

“He stood there thinking and willing himself to do it for almost an hour, but in the end he chose not to do it.”
