I’M A CELEB 2022 LIVE: Chris Moyles and Owen Warner face The Savage Sorting Office trial – after the show was hit by Covid outbreak

Read all the latest updates from episode 18 of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2022: 

Host commentator

Matt Hancock ‘broke’ the I’m A Celebrity rules by asking Babatunde to send a message to his girlfriend Gina Colangelo once he left the jungle, Richard Arnold has claimed. 

The Good Morning Britain showbiz host was looking at Babatunde Aleshe’s departure from the show as the fifth celebrity voted out of the jungle down under.

But he says that Matt, who said ‘Will you say that to Gina?’ when giving his goodbye greetings, was rule-breaking by sending a message to the outside world.

Speaking on his I’m A Celebrity segment on Thursday’s Good Morning Britain, Richard said: ‘Eagle-eyed viewers spotted Matt Hancock issue a potentially rule-breaking request during a goodbye hug.

‘Sending a message to the outside world!’

Susanna Reid, seemingly perplexed, asks: ‘Is that not allowed?!’ 

Richard says: ‘No. Not allowed to send messages to the outside world.’

Babatúndé Aléshé was the fifth star to be eliminated from I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! 2022.

After conquering his fear of heights earlier in the series, the comedian bid farewell to the camp after ending up in the bottom two with Seann Walsh.

As he took his seat in the treehouse for his interview, Babatúndé was so excited to have left the camp that he spilled his glass of champagne.

Following his exit, Babatunde told hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly that he was thrilled to be out of the camp after two and a half weeks. 

He said: ‘It’s been crazy to see it because living in it is a whole new expereince. Spending two and a bit weeks in there is hardcore. All we do is talk about food.’

Fatima Whitbread, who finished third on I’m a Celeb in 2011, has told Jungle Confidential that Boy George was a ‘good asset’ but not good value for money.

The former athlete, 61, said the popstar ‘did a good job’ bringing controversy and drama to the camp, but left a bit early to justify his reported £500,000 fee. 

Jungle Confidential, our daily video podcast about all things I’m a Celebrity, is available Monday-Friday on MailOnline, and on our YouTube channel. It will also be available as a podcast via all your favourite streaming services and Mail+, completely free.

Fatima told podcast host Katie Hind people tune in to watch camp life and see celebrities be themselves and ‘is really what people tune in for’ and that Boy George ‘brought that to the camp’.

Two members of staff tested positive for the virus earlier this week, prompting bosses to tighten up safety measures in a bid to stop it spreading further.

A tent selling hot drinks and snacks on the jungle site in New South Wales, Australia was also shut down temporarily overnight so it could be disinfected.

A spokesperson for the ITV series told MailOnline: ‘We can confirm a couple of production team members have tested positive for coronavirus. 

‘The protocols we have in place for such an eventuality have been implemented and filming has continued as we adhere to all covid guidelines.’

They said safety is paramount on the show and stringent safety measures are in place across the set, and that the outbreak will not affect Sunday’s final.

Chris Moyles and Owen Warner will tackle The Savage Sorting Office, where the blindfolded DJ is tasked with following Owen’s verbal directions to lower him into a tank filled with water where several bags filled with stars were placed.

Swimming around the bags were mud crabs and eels, with Owen having to direct Chris throughout the task.

In a clip from the show, co-host Declan Donnelly told the pair: ‘Your first 90 seconds for your first cart starts now.’

Owen was then seen directing Chris, saying: ‘Right, go right bro. Lower me down a little bit.’

As Chris began to lower Owen towards the tank, the actor shouted: ‘Stop, stop stop!’ as he was almost plunged into the water.

Sounding exhausted, Chris said: ‘Oh my God, this is heavy.’

Join us for updates on the 18th episode of the 2022 series, where Chris Moyles and Owen Warner will face the The Savage Sorting Office Trial.
