I’m A Celebrity 2022: ‘The public have no chill!’ Babatúndé is voted for second trial of the series Horrifying Heights after becoming the first star to FORFEIT terrifying walk the plank challenge

Babatúndé Aleshe is set to take on the second trial of the series after becoming the first star to yell ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!’ during the Ledge challenge.

The comedian, 36, discovered he had been voted for by the public to take on Horrifying Heights at the end of Monday night’s show.

Some ITV viewers felt bad for the star having to face his fear of heights again so quickly, with one claiming ‘the public have no chill’. 

Public vote: Babatúndé Aleshe is set to take on the second trial of the series after becoming the first star to yell ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!’ during terrifying Ledge challenge

Ant and Dec entered the camp to reveal the news and said: ‘You’ve guessed it, Babatúndé. We’ll see you at the trail area very soon.’ 

His fellow campmates were quick to give him support as they were seen hugging him while he claimed: ‘I’ve got this, I’ve got this’ 

The trial will see the comedian having to search for stars in hell holes filled with critters, all while suspended in mid-air above the jungle canopy. 

After the live show aired, Ant and Dec went live on Instagram to joke about Babatúndé forfeiting the first trial of the series. 

Ant said: ‘It might be very very short for us, he can’t say it twice can he’ 

While Dec added: ‘This is harder than focus as well its like 10 minutes in the air’ 

Get me out of here! During the launch show, the ten celebrities began their journey with three terrifying challenges – as Babatúndé fell at the first hurdle, breaking down in tears during a heights challenge, dubbed The Ledge

Ant and Dec entered the camp to reveal the news and said: ‘You’ve guessed it, Babatúndé. We’ll see you at the trail area very soon.’

ITV viewers took to Twitter to share their reaction, with one penning: ‘The public have no chill voting babatunde’

Another wrote: ‘Me voting babatunde for the heights trial so we can traumatise him once and for all’

A third said: The British public pretending to be shocked when Babatunde is voted to do tomorrow nights trial’ 

ITV viewers took to Twitter to share their reaction, with one penning: ‘The public have no chill voting babatunde’

The hit ITV show kicked off on Sunday and viewers have already witnessed a star yell out I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! forfeiting a challenge and star for camp. 

During the launch show, the ten celebrities began their journey with three terrifying challenges – as Babatúndé fell at the first hurdle, breaking down in tears during a heights challenge, dubbed The Ledge.

Admitting he ‘wasn’t determined’ to face his fear as he took on The Ledge at the towering Focus building, the funnyman was the first of his campmates to yell the famous ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!’

Babatúndé was joined by Loose Women’s Charlene White and retired England Lioness Jill Scott to attempt to win stars for camp by walking the plank.

Support: His fellow campmates were quick to give him support as they were seen hugging him while he claimed: ‘I’ve got this, I’ve got this’

Tough: The comedian, 36, was voted by the public to take on Horrifying Heights at the end of Monday night’s show

Presenters Ant and Dec greeted the celebs at the top of the Australian building explaining what they had to face to gain the stars for camp.

Ant said: ‘One at a time you’ve got to walk to the end of your planks. When all three of you are in position, on our cue, you’ve got to step onto the yellow ledge at the very end. You’ve got to lean forward, using a rope behind you to stop you falling off.’

Dec added to the terrified trio: ‘There are three stars up for grabs here, each one of them is worth a meal for camp tonight. 

‘You need to remain on the ledge for 60 seconds. When the time’s up, in order to win your star, all you have to do is let go of the rope. Then gravity will take over.’

Ant noted: ‘If you fall from the ledge before your 60 seconds is up, you’ll automatically lose your star.’

A nervous Babatúndé joked: ‘It’s windy, that’s contributing to the water in my eyes…’

Jill said: ‘This is a very difficult task to get one star. I think you should get 10 if you complete this.’

Charlene was up first and walked bit by bit to the end of the plank and waited for Babatúndé to reach the end of his next. 

The comedian attempted to urge himself on by telling himself: ‘Just go! Just go!’ but instead freaked out and yelled: ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ being the first celeb of the new series to quit a challenge early. 

The task continued as Charlene waited for Jill to get to the end of her plank before they could both lean forward and complete the 60 seconds. 

Scared: Babatúndé ‘wasn’t determined’ to face his fear as he took on The Ledge at the towering Focus building where he had to walk the plank and remain on the ledge for 60 seconds before letting go of the rope to win the star and meal for camp

The pair both let go of the rope to complete the task and therefore earned two stars for camp.

Following the challenge Charlene admitted: ‘It’s going to take me a long time to process it.’

Babatúndé added about forfeiting his star: ‘I said I was determined to be here. I wasn’t determined to be there [pointing to the plank].’

I’m A Celebrity will air every night of the week and both weekend nights after the launch – all at 9pm.
