The new series begins next Sunday

The I’m A Celebrity launch is reportedly under threat as storms are predicted to hit the camp.

The new series will begin on November 17 as a fresh batch of celebrities head into the Aussie jungle with Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly hosting.

However, according to the Mirror, the weather for the launch night isn’t looking good with storms predicted to hit during the afternoon and throughout the night.

The publication reports one Aussie forecaster said: “A couple of thunderstorms around in the afternoon… [at night there will be] periods of rain and a thunderstorm.”

However, the weather could still change as it’s 10 days until the show starts.

Ent Daily has contacted reps for I’m A Celebrity for comment.

It comes after Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway appeared to confirm she’s doing the show this year.

Over the last few weeks, the presenter has dropped several hints she’s heading into the jungle later this month and the rumours have been constantly teased on the daytime programme.

On Thursday’s show, Kate made a joke about staying in a posh Australian hotel before quickly backtracking on her comments.

During a discussion about what a person’s Christmas Nativity role meant for the rest of their lives, Kate revealed she played Mary.

Showbiz correspondent Richard Arnold joked: “It doesn’t bode well with the public vote though.”

Kate then said: “I’ll be back in the Versace [hotel] with that smorgasbord of sushi and dirty burgers.”

Mary correlated to earning £39,000 a year and having 1,504 followers on social media.

Ben Shephard asked: “Really?!” to which Kate quickly said: “Well if I were to be, ever in the future, doing it… oh.”

Other stars tipped to appear on the show include former Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle, ex EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa, rugby star James Haskell, footballer Ian Wright and Coronation Street star Andy Whyment.

Radio presenter – and son of Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp – Ronan Kemp is also thought to be in the running to be a contestant, as well as Myles Stephenson from X Factor winners Rak-Su.
