I’m A Celebrity camp ‘in danger of being engulfed by 200 BUSH FIRES as nearby towns are evacuated’

  • According to The Mirror bosses have been working with the local fire service to ensure the camp can be evacuated if the blaze moves any closer
  • The state of Queensland, where the show is filmed has been battered by fires due to the hot, dry weather
  • The towns of Oxenford and Wongawallan – mere miles away from the famous camp – are also at risk of evacuation
  • Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, the head of government in the state told BBC News: ‘We have never, ever in this state been in this situation before’
  • A representative for I’m A Celebrity told MailOnline: ‘We speak to the Fire services regularly and as standard practice would of course be monitoring the bush fires in Oxenford and Wongawallan’

The stars of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here are reportedly in danger of 200 bush fires as they lead nearby towns to be evacuated, according to The Mirror.

A source told the publication that bosses are working with the local fire services to ensure that the camp can be evacuated if the blazes move any closer, as towns mere miles away have already been cleared.

It comes three years after a Dingo Dollar challenge was abandoned and the entire camp was evacuated after an enormous rain storm flooded the main camp, leading the celebrities to take shelter in the Bush Telegraph.

‘There is no immediate danger but the safety and the welfare of our cast and crew is our number one concern, and so we will continue to watch how the fires develop. 

‘We are really hoping they don’t get any closer to camp.’ 

When contacted by MailOnline a representative for I’m A Celebrity said: ‘We speak to the Fire services regularly and as standard practice would of course be monitoring the bush fires in Oxenford and Wongawallan.’

It comes as up to 200 wildfires are waging across the region of Queensland, including the towns of Oxenford and Wongawallan, which are mere miles away from the famous jungle camp.

Murwillumbah, where I’m A Celebrity is filmed on the border of Queensland and New South Wales, is in the line of the fires if they move south thanks to the warm and dry weather.

So far in the area of central Queensland, 8,000 residents in the town of Gracemere have been evacuated from their homes – the first time in the area’s 150 year history. 

The larger town of Rockhampton has also been under threat, with around 80,000 under warning of being evacuated, and the Bureau of Meteorology declared a ‘catastrophic fire danger’ in the state.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, the head of government in the state told BBC News on Wednesday: ‘We have never, ever in this state been in this situation before.

‘We have not had a catastrophic level. This is uncharted waters.’

The publication also reported that plans are in place should the camp need to be evacuated, either due to bush fires or extreme flooding. 

Of course this is not the first time I’m A Celebrity bosses have had to organise a surprise evacuation, as the camp was evacuated in 2015 after being hit by a heavy storm.

Celebrities including Vicky Pattison, Ferne McCann and George Shelley took refuge in the Bush Telegraph after the heavy rain took out the camp’s power, while a Dingo Dollar Challenge was forced to be abandoned.

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here continues on Wednesday 28th November at 9pm on ITV.
