I'm A Celebrity's new camp is unveiled for the first time


Fans are eagerly anticipating the beloved series’ return to screens next weekend, with the likes of Gemma Collins, Amir Khan and Danny Dyer rumoured to appear.

And viewers of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! were given a teaser of whats to come on Sunday, as photos of the new camp base were unveiled.

Embarking on perhaps a more elaborate first challenge than usual, a large white stately home was seen being set-up in the Australian bush – as well as rustic windmill, a number of plunge pools and of course, Ant and Dec’s famous tree-house, connected to camp via suspension bridge.

Proving the first challenge to be as show-stopping as ever, the first photos of camp display a life sized mock-up of a stately home, complete with French windows and a pillar-lined porch, erected in a clearing outside the jungle.

Complete with a roof and balcony, there also appeared to be a specially-prepared garden, as well as a slide structure, concealed by green tarpaulin – presumably part of the first exciting task for contestants.

Clearly a large project to be featured on the first show, a number of crew members and cars were also seen getting to work on the structure, to ensure its safe completion ahead of the first show on November 19. 

Nearby, a black windmill was also set up – with what appeared to be a cage fitted to the sails, implying one contestant will be spun round on the structure in a bid to win stars for camp.

Surrounding the new structures were multiple bodies of water, including a large plunge pool and an underwater tunnel, as well as a collection of canoes – with a boat-based challenge kicking off the show last year. 

Only adding to the extensive selection of tasks, a number of zip wires stretched across the expanse of camp, as well as the famous wobbly bridge, which camp mates walk when they are eliminated from the show. 

In more familiar style, the bridge also led to Ant and Dec’s famous headquarters – the iconic tree-house they deliver their witty lines from throughout the series. 

Despite the new surroundings however, it was recently reported I’m A Celebrity could be thrown into chaos – after a slew of severe weather warnings, which could wreak havoc in camp.

The much-loved reality series has been confirmed by ITV to return this month on November 19, but the celebrities taking part could find themselves in less than ideal conditions due to 170mph tropical cyclones hitting Australia. 

It’s claimed show bosses are hoping the camp isn’t destroyed by the extreme weather and are concerned the series start date may have to be pushed back as a result. 

According to Daily Star, forecasters have predicted the onset of ‘major storms’ around the same time I’m A Celebrity is due to return with yet another series. 

A spokesperson from AccuWeather told the publication: ‘An early start to the season is expected with a named cyclone forming before the end of December.’

Such weather could put the brand new camp at risk of a ‘washout’. MailOnline has contacted a representative for ITV.

Famous hosts Ant and Dec, who have fronted the ITV show since 2002, landed in Brisbane earlier this week – all but confirming that 41-year-old McPartlin will be returning to screens with the series. 

Ant’s appearance on I’m A Celeb had been heavily speculated, following his rehab stay over the summer, but appearing in high spirits, he seemed ready and raring to get started as he and Dec laughed on their way out of the airport terminal. 

Ant has suffered a difficult 2017, after admitting in June he had been battling a two-year addiction to painkillers after a devastating knee injury and fertility issues.

The presenter revealed his plans to check in to rehab for alcohol and drug addiction to The Sun, and admitted he’s ‘let people down’ before thanking his wife Lisa and co-star Declan for the support provided.  

Lisa Armstrong, to whom Ant has been married since 2006, has stood by his side throughout his troubles – but they are now reported to be having troubles of their own. 

Earlier this month, sources claimed that Ant was ‘re-evaluating’ his marriage to Lisa after moving out to a location a few streets away from the pair’s £6million mansion. An insider told The Sun: ‘They are effectively leading separate lives.’

Speculation over the pair’s marriage has intensified of late compounded by the fact that while Ant continues to wear his wedding ring, Lisa has been pictured without hers in recent weeks. 

They have claimed that Ant’s stay in Australia will act as a ‘make or break’ few weeks for himself and his wife, as they will use the time apart to ‘decide how they feel about each other’. 

Meanwhile, I’m A Celeb bosses are remaining tight-lipped on the line-up for the forthcoming installment, but several celebrities have been spotted landing in Australia, sparking rumours of an appearance.

Kicking off: It is not known when the house will be used as part of a challenge - as contestants usually enter the jungle via helicopter jump

These include Made In Chelsea star Georgia Toffolo, former footballer Dennis Wise, Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas and Vanessa White, one fifth of girl band The Saturdays.

It is also rumoured that Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby and TOWIE’s Gemma Collins are set to appear – marking the latter’s second appearance on the show.

Gemma hit headlines back in 2014 when she first competed in the show and left the jungle after just 72 hours in camp. 

Amir Khan and EastEnders actor Danny Dyer have also been heavily rumoured to appear – with the former world champion boxer believed to have already landed Down Under.
