I'm A Celebrity could move its camp to an Aussie island in new twist

I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! 2016

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here could be set to move its camp in the years to come.

The show has filmed in the same location in Australia for more than a decade now, ever since 2003.

Springbrook National Park in New South Wales has been the home to jungle based celebs for 14 years but a change could be on the way.

It's been suggested that the show could move 1,500 miles West to Kangaroo Island, off the south coast of Australia, when its current contract expires in 2020.

The Daily Mirror newspaper reports that the Australian government has written to ITV to recommend the new location.

The tabloid quotes agent general Bill Muirhead as saying: “With a third of the island covered by national parks, Kangeroo Island is teeming with creatures not found anywhere else, most of which we’re more than happy for people to eat on TV.”

He continues: "Looking forward to 2020, could it be time for a change? I ask you to consider Kangaroo Island, a place pulsating with all the wonder and weirdness Australia has to offer, an island with a name that seems straight out of a story of buccaneers and bushrangers."

The news follows reported difficulties with the current location before last year's series, ahead of the renewal of the show's contract.

As well as a move to elsewhere in Australia, another location in the world was previously rumoured.

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

I'm A Celebrity will be back on ITV in November.
