Why could Babatunde Aleshe be exempt from some I'm A Celebrity bushtucker trials

Babatunde Aleshe has definitely faced his fears so far on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! from almost taking on the very first trial by hanging off the edge of a very tall building, to having his head locked in a box full of frogs in his most recent challenge.

The Celebrity Gogglebox star screamed his way through the challenge on Thursday’s episode, which also saw Scarlette Douglas faced with rats, and Owen Warner with snakes around his face.

The day before, Chris Moyles took on the Boiling Room bushtucker trial, one which Babatunde was exempt from, leaving many fans wondering why.

‘I’m guessing Babatunde can’t swim due to always being exempt on the swimming trials?’ one wrote.

Another penned: ‘Either Babatunde can’t swim or he has a medical condition like mine that doesn’t allow water in ears or high water pressure.’

It’s not uncommon for celebrities to be exempt from some of the trials, with the camp’s first ever royal Mike Tindall being exempt from another, and Sue Cleaver also ruled out of one of the challenges.

There could be a whole host of reasons for celebrities to be exempt, but fans seem to think Babatunde may not be a strong swimmer, which is why he can’t take part in any challenges involving swimming.

Babatunde was exempt from the trial in which Chris managed to get one star, which involved him swimming through underwater chambers filled with critters.

Earlier in the series, it was also revealed that Babatunde was exempt from the Tentacles of Terror Bushtucker Trial.

Former health secretary Matt Hancock had taken that one on, in which he found himself submerged in an octopus-shaped structure among an assortment of underwater critters.

ITV declined to comment on why Babatunde is exempt, but past examples have almost always been medical.

In previous seasons, celebrities have been excused from several trials without any clear reason given.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
