Celebrity Gogglebox fan favourites will return to the sofa for new series, confirms star | The Sun

CELEBRITY Gogglebox stars Babatunde Aleshe and Mo Gilligan are set to return to the Channel 4 show for the new series.

The I'm A Celebrity star, 36, and the TV presenter, 35, have become firm favourites on the hit show, so fans will be delighted to know that the duo have been asked to return.

Babatunde – who joined the cast of Celebrity Gogglebox in October 2020 – said he'll be filming the new series very soon.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Babatunde said: "I'm focusing on The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan, doing that series.

"I'm back on Gogglebox as well, I'll be back in June, so we'll start filming again."

The comedian said that he and Mo get up to plenty of antics behind-the-scenes, meaning they're forced to take multiple takes while filming.

"Sometimes with me and Mo we have to keep doing takes because we're always constantly making ourselves and the crew laugh," the stand-up comedian said at the ARIAS Awards in London where he rubbed shoulders with British radio's elite.

Although he may have faced his fears in the Australian jungle last year, Babatunde admitted that he's still a scaredy-cat when it comes to watching horror films on the Channel 4 show.

"All the horror films, I don't like watching horrors – if you've seen my reactions when I watch horrors, I'm pooing my pants.

"My sister made me watch Nightmare on Elm Street – from then it's left me with PTSD."

The TV favourite – who won a legion of fans with his appearance on the ITV jungle show – teased he would return if they did an All Stars series again.

He said: "This one was filmed in August last year, give it another five or six years.

"I'm in contact with the whole group, everyone is just trying to find time to meet up.

"We have a WhatsApp group, Matt [Hancock] is not in the main camp, there's a second group with the families of the campmates, he's in that one.

"I'm a Christian so my whole thing in forgiveness, if I can't do that then there's no point in me being here."

Babatunde – who is currently on tour around the UK with his live comedy show – said he's currently focusing on his stand-up but wouldn't rule out reality TV in the future.

"I was asked to do Strictly the same time I was asked to do I'm A Celeb – but I picked I'm A Celeb because I can't dance," he said.

"Give it 10 years and I may do the All Stars, let me process what I've been through, all the frogs that they put in my face."

"I'm more scared of frogs now than before I went in," he laughed.
