WestKing alumnus, actor and comedian, Babatunde Aléshé, is getting off his Celebrity Gogglebox sofa and is off to Australia as one of the stars taking part in ITV’s smash prime-time hit show, I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Babatunde is one of Britain’s brightest black comedians. He studied Performing Arts at WestKing from 2002 to 2005 and is dreading the trials that he’s likely to face in the jungle. He told ITV that it took several attempts to persuade him to join I’m a Celebrity… because he is filled with horror at the prospect of rats, snakes and cockroaches being poured over him.
“I am going to see what happens but I know I will be doing a lot of screaming for sure,” he said.
Good luck Babatunde!
I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! starts on Sunday 6 November at 9pm on ITV. You can follow Babatunde’s exploits in the jungle – and vote for him – on ITV, online and on social media (#ImACeleb). You can find out more about his fellow contestants here.
