    "But having a conversation with the executives reassured me of my safety. That is my main concern – I'm not trying to get eaten by nothing."

    The Celebrity Gogglebox star explained he wants to be known for being "open and honest" and said he wants his pal Mo Gilligan to watch him on the show..

    The star added: "I know what that guy is like, seeing me suffer and seeing me face my fear would be the funniest thing for you. He would be dying."

    Babatúndé will appear on screen on Sunday and the star has expressed his excitement to catch up with the two hosts, Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.

    He added: "I'm so excited man, I'd love to meet those two. I used to watch them when I was proper small, like when they were PJ and Duncan so meeting them will be a dream come true.

    "I'm excited."
