Excited for I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here? What if I told you it was on the verge of being CANCELLED.
Yep, the show that only makes Novembers in the UK worth hanging around for could come across some major issues in regards to extreme weather.
Meteorologists say the Australian region where the reality show camp is based, Murwillumbah, New South Wales, will come up against ‘inhospitable conditions’ in the week leading up to the first episode.
Friday 10th to Sunday 12th this month is projected to see the worst of high-speed winds and dangerous UV levels.
I’m a Celeb will officially kick off on November 19. The contestants are due to fly out days before, during crunch time, which therein lies the problem.
Weatherzone predicts winds will reach up to 20km per-hour.
But it’s not the wind that’s the issue, the bad news is that UV levels are ‘extreme’, which could devastate the show’s plans.
Last month comedian Joel Dommett hinted that Ant McPartlin would be appearing on the ITV hit show alongside Declan Donnely after spending time in rehab earlier in the year, and the news was confirmed last week.

There had been doubts about his return to I’m a Celeb with bookies taking bets who would replace him.
Caroline Flack was the favourite to co-present.
Station controller, Kevin Lygo, confirmed Ant’s return at the Edinburgh International TV Festival:
Ant is doing really well and we are expecting him to return for I’m a Celebrity.
Following suggestions Dec might present the reality TV show with Holly Willoughby, of This Morning fame, a close friend of the pair dismissed the claims.
As Ant embarked on a two-month stint in rehab, Declan Donnelly showed his support in the most heart-warming way.
The friend explained how Dec would never present without Ant, explaining how the personalities come as a pair and he’d refuse work unless McPartlin was well enough to participate.
Now let’s get to the rumoured I’m a Celeb contestants…
Remember Vanessa from The Saturdays?
No? Come on, you gotta remember Vanessa! Shame on you if you don’t. Cause lemme tell ya, I remember her so well.
Wife of Leicester City footballer, Jamie Vardy, Rebekah is set to enter camp.
Rebekah has been on TV talking about her battle with post-natal depression following the birth of her second child with Jamie.
The ex Corrie actor originally appeared on the 2014 show but left early after the tragic sudden death of his brother.
But recently he revealed he’d been asked to re-join the jungle for a second time. His answer? ‘Never say never.’ That is just textbook Craig!
I know what you’re thinking. Who the hell is Danielle Armstrong?! Well let’s just say this: you ever heard of… erm? Erm. Nah no idea who the girl is. But I’m sure she’s a great person.
Uh-oh! Step aside political correctness, motor-mouth is in town! With Hopkins in the jungle, who knows what might happen. Knowing her she’ll probably intentionally antagonise people! What’s she bloody like.
Mate, this guy’s so beta. A lifetime of dire reality TV. I almost feel sorry for him but then again I don’t.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
