I'm A Celebrity 2016: 'Giant man eating SNAKE on the loose near camp'

A giant man eating SNAKE is said to be stalking the I'm A Celebrity 2016 campsite.

The mammoth carpet python was spotted by hikers in the jungle around the Aussie camp earlier this year but has yet to be caught, the Daily Mirror newspaper reports.

While the serpent is likely to have been feasting on possums or even kangaroo, wildlife expert Dan Bamblett warned it could easily kill a child or even an adult if they were caught unaware.

Fortunately there are plenty of experts keeping an eye on the celebs which should keep them safe if they do find themselves with an unwelcome extra camp mate.

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.

But it's not just wildlife they need to be worried about with a bush fire also said to be threatening camp.

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.

I'm A Celebrity starts Sunday night at 9PM on ITV.
