You can tell the new series of I’m A Celebrity is on its way as stories are already coming out of the jungle thick and fast.
The latest tale to tickle our fancies is the show news that the jungle camp that will play home to the likes of Ola Jordan, Scarlett Moffatt, Adam Thomas and Carol Vordeman for three weeks could face total devastation as wild fires rage not too far away.
Show producers are apparently panicking that the series could be in jeopardy and that the camp could be destroyed.
The massive blaze has already spread across 200 miles and is headed in the direction of Springbrook National Park where the show is filmed. According to fire services, the fire is just 40 miles away!
Luckily, its believe that the fire is under control and is being managed by The New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service. However, this wild and raging blaze is just one of 46 currently burning across the Australian state.
Over 600 firefighters are attempting to to tackle the major blazes but are apparently finding it hard due to the ferocious heat of Australia’s hot summer weather and unusually strong North Westerly winds which are hampering their efforts.
Meanwhile, Adam Thomas has arrived in Australia and told reporters that he is “scared of everything” – which should make for great TV – while Larry Lamb has revealed that he had to have a family meeting before he signed up to the show after he almost died after a previous overseas trip.
The 69-year-old former EastEnders star caught Malaria on a trip to Senegal six years ago, which left him almost totally deaf in one ear and suffering bouts of chronic joint pain.
Arriving in Australia Larry told reporters: “It’s a family business. Everybody had to agree it was OK for the old boy to do it. We had a meeting.”
I’m A Celebrity starts this Sunday!
