This years I’m a celebrity has got off to a cracking start and we already have a few favourites, especially in Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt but why is she exempt from some of the trials?
Scarlett suffers from Bell’s palsy condition after being hit by a car when she was 11. Bell’s palsy is a condition which causes temporary weakness or paralysis of the muscles in one side of the face. Not that it hinders Scarlett at all as the tasks she has done she’s smashed to smitherines.
She was reported saying this of her condition:
I was doing a performance for my mum and dad – I used to put on little shows for them – when all of a sudden, my mouth just drooped and I remember standing in front of the mirror and just screaming.
My eye dropped, I couldn’t speak properly, I got all slurred, and my mum and dad thought I was putting it on.
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.
