I’m A Celebrity Bosses ‘Worried’ After Wildfire Nears The Camp

The upcoming series could be in ‘jeopardy’

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! bosses are reportedly panicking following a spread of wildfires in the jungle that is used to film the popular ITV show.

They’re apparently praying that the fires don’t get any closer to the camp, as the fires have already ended up causing the area to be evacuated.

Currently there are ten bush fires, with two of them being labelled as “out of control” by firefighters.

A source told The Sun that the fires were “pretty scary” and were a bit of a “law unto themselves”. 

“A change of wind direction can send them on a collision course with the camp,” they continued.

“ITV’s jungle is actually a banana plantation that cost £7million to turn into a working TV studio so if the fire gets any closer to it there will be some very worried executives.”

According to reports, there are already some celebrities lined up for this year’s season, which will see Ant McPartlin return to the Australian jungle after his year away, with Holly Willoughby filling in his place.

Amy Hart from this year’s Love Island has already expressed her interest in this year’s show, saying: ‘I would love to. I’d absolutely love to. I hate rats. I hate rats. That’s the only thing. Like I can deal with the Spiders and stuff, I can deal with all the creepy crawlies but it’s the rats. “They put me in that coffin with rats.”

The Mirror also reported that Paul Hollywood’s ex-girlfriend Summer Monteys-Fullam has been offered £125K to enter the Australian jungle following their highly publicised dramatic break up.

The Sun’s Bizarre revealed singer Duncan James (who found his fame in boyband, Blue) had been persuaded to join the series.

A source said: “Duncan has been approached in the past for I’m A Celebrity but the timing wasn’t right — until now.“With his good looks and personality, he is the perfect fit for the jungle. Producers also think he could be telly gold because he will have to face his phobias head-on.”
