The popular show is back for a highly-anticipated new instalment – with Ant and Dec set to reprise their presenting roles.
But while fans count down the days until the duo are back on screens, I’m A Celebrity‘s launch could be in jeopardy due to extreme weather fears.
According to reports the Gold Coast in Australia, where the series is filmed, is set to be hit with a whole week of torrential rain.
The rain could lead to flooding, meaning the camp where the celebrities stay could need to be evacuated.

An insider told The Sun that celebrities would have to be moved to a “temporary site on higher ground” if the bad weather continues.
The source told the publication:”We are preparing for all eventualities. Provisions are in place for soggy conditions and campmates are equipped with waterproofs to wear should it rain heavily.
“It’s just a shame for viewers back home in the UK who like to see the celebs enjoying the warm weather.”
They continued: “There is also more chance of the women donning their bikinis for the the waterfall shower scenes when it’s warm, so they’re hoping it will brighten up as soon as possible.”
