I’m A Celebrity’s jungle shower invaded by blood sucking leeches

I’m A Celebrity’s famous shower has been invaded by blood sucking leeches.


Unusually cold and damp weather in the camp this year has seen numbers of the bugs rise.

The Daily Star claims the invasion may see the jungle shower out of use when the show kicks off this weekend.

And it’s not just leeches that the weather is bringing out.

A large 5ft python had to be removed by the show’s team this week as they prepare the bush for this year’s celebrities.

Apparently the current climate in the jungle could result in the latest I’m A Celebrity line up being joined by some unexpected visitors throughout their stay.

A source explained to the Daily Mirror newspaper: “The unseasonably cold weather has brought the snakes out as they try and find somewhere warm. This will be an ongoing problem this year, which is not good news for the celebrities.


“Medic Bob and the team will have to be on the lookout for anything dangerous as a snakebite can easily prove fatal if not treated quickly.”

A total of ten celebrities have signed up for the show, including Hollyoaks hunk Jamie Lomas, who recently left his role on the Channel 4 soap, and Made In Chelsea’s Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo.

Celebs joining them are The Saturdays’ singer Vanessa White, then boxer Amir Khan and most recently Coronation Street actress Jennie McAlpine.


I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here launches this Sunday on November 19 at 9PM on ITV with hosts Ant and Dec.

Meanwhile, Scarlett Moffatt, Joe Swash and Joel Dommett will host a new look Extra Camp spin-off on ITV2, airing each night straight after the main show.
