I'm A Celebrity 2016: 'Unhygienic' celebrities told to clean up their act


The I'm A Celebrity 2016 campers have been told to clean up their act by show medic Dr Bob.

Speaking on ITV2’s Extra Camp last night, Bob told how there has been a "fungus" problem with some of this year's all star contestants.

He explained: “We have problems every year with the cast, especially women, funnily enough, growing fungus on certain body parts.”

Extra Camp host Joe Swash quipped: "We all know what he means!”

“So is this a hygiene thing then?” Joe asked.

The medic replied: “Yes it hygiene a thing.

“Even though the celebrities in the camp are quite healthy, I have been instructing them to use the shower and (encourage) personal hygiene a bit more.”

However not all the problems in the jungle can be dealt with by just a bit of water.

A snake spooked the I'm A Celebrity 2016 contestants in the jungle camp yesterday, but they had no idea about it.

The celebrities had a lucky escape during the night from a poisonous black small eyed snake that had slithered into camp while the campmates snored away oblivious to any danger.

Although fairly small at 60 cm long the venom from the glossy skinned creature packs a punch that can leave their prey needing urgent medical attention, without which they could die.

The snake had crept into camp hot on the heels of a mouse that was lurking around Joel’s bed but was removed by a ranger and moved to another part of the Jungle before it could claim its prey.

Joel apparently had no idea of the danger, or the rangers around his bed, saying in the Bush Telegraph in the morning that he was happy with his peaceful night in camp.

I'm A Celebrity continues nightly on ITV.
