I'm A Celebrity's camp could be under threat from an approaching bush fire.

According to The Sun newspaper, a raging fire spread over 200 MILES is currently being battled by firefighters not far from the Aussie camp.

The tabloid reports that 600 emergency service workers are keeping the blaze under control, together with 45 other fires that have started across the Australian state in the hot summer weather.

It comes just days ahead of I'm A Celebrity kicking off with the celebs expected to enter camp on Friday night.

The ten celebrities heading into the Jungle for the new series include Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo, ex England footballer Wayne Bridge, comic Joel Dommett, dancer Ola Jordan and actor Larry Lamb.

Joining them are Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt, Olympic hockey player Sam Quek, TV and Radio presenter Lisa Snowdon, soap star Adam Thomas and TV personality Carol Vorderman-MBE.

Hopefully they'll all be safe for this year, but next year there may well be another problem.

The show has filmed in the same location in Australia for more than a decade now but the current landowner is said to be considering not renewing his contract with producers when it expires in February.

"He is sick and tired of having the cast and crew there," a source claimed.

Show bosses have reportedly already been looking elsewhere for new campsites, both in Australia and elsewhere.

While the UK show has always filmed Down Under, international series have been based across the world in countries including Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Suriname, Indonesia, Malaysia and South Africa.

In response to the reports, ITV said: “We have a good relationship with the owner of the site and we’re currently on our 15th series in that location.”

Whether or not the show will move camp remains to be seen, but either way next year is a LONG way off.

For now, this year's series kicks off this Sunday night on ITV at 9PM.
