This explains why Scarlett was exempt from the public vote to take on the most recent trial, ‘Total Ascent’, which Joel Dommett subsequently undertook.
Speaking to The Sun of her condition, Scarlett said: “I can’t close my left eye properly. I have to sleep with a little eye mask and my mouth still goes to the side when I talk, although people don’t really notice.
Scarlett may not be able to take on some of the more physical challenges in the jungle, but she impressed viewers when she took on the eating trial with Carol Vorderman earlier this week, winning nine stars for camp.
Scarlett is not the only high-profile sufferer of Bell’s Palsy, as Sam Bailey revealed she has been diagnosed with the condition in 2014.
Kerry Katona’s husband, George Kay, also revealed he was suffering with it last year, after being rushed to hospital with a suspected stroke.
‘I’m A Celebrity’ continues on Friday (18 November) at 9pm on ITV.
