Babatúndé Aléshé was greeted by his nearest and dearest at the JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort and Spa following his jungle exit on Wednesday.

The comedian and Celebrity Gogglebox star, 34, became the fifth I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! public vote casualty, leaving behind the likes of Owen Warner, Jill Scott and Mike Tindall to creep ever closer to that 'King or Queen of the jungle' status.

As Babatúndé's fate was confirmed by Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly, he stood up to bid goodbye to each of his campmates, yet his and Matt Hancock's quick squeeze caught the eye of Good Morning Britain's entertainment editor Richard Arnold for one particular reason.

"Man like Matt!" Babatúndé said, "You're so wonderful!"

"Will you say that to Gina?" was the politician's response, referring to girlfriend Gina Coladangelo, who flew into Brisbane Airport recently.


"Sending a message to the outside world…" remarked Richard following the show, as co-presenter Susanna Reid asked: "Is that not allowed?"

"[You're] not allowed to send a message to the outside world. Subliminal messages are different. I'd be sending a flare up by this point – it's been long enough!" Richard joked.

Richard, 53, ended this segment with a sly dig at Matt, much to the amusement of the Good Morning Britain studio.

"There we have it, Matt Hancock breaking rules!" he quipped.


Moving on from more Matt controversy, Babatúndé made sure to thank his I'm A Celebrity co-stars for making him "feel brave" throughout the series.

"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," he told them.

"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 ahead of his final confetti-cannoned bridge walk, Babatúndé admitted he felt "blessed" to have undergone the ITV jungle experience, before accidentally soaking himself with his fizzy drink.

"Don't get twisted. I loved it in there, but I needed my freedom," he stated.

"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."
