I'm a Celebrity 2012

I'm A Celebrity bosses have reportedly spent £60,000 on creepy crawlies for this year's series.

It's been claimed today that producers have brought in more than £40,000 worth of cockroaches and £20,000 worth of rats to be used in next month's series.

As always, the tough bushtucker trials will be back as the stars battle for stars in order to win food for both themselves and their celebrity campmates.

According to the Daily Star, one of this year's challenges will be called the Midnight Express, with one unlucky camper being locked into a dark carriage of a train... full of bugs!

Other planned bushtucker trials will include getting a celebrity to become a giant hamster and go running on a giant wheel, while another will see the chosen celebrity having to collect meal stars in an underwater task.
