Im A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will not be moving sites despite forest fires spreading throughout Australia.

The Sun reported that the flames are dangerously close to the Im A Celeb set, with fires said to be out of control.



An insider told the publication: [The fires are] a bit of a law unto themselves and a change of wind direction can send them on a collision course with the camp.

ITVs jungle is actually a banana plantation that cost £7million to turn into a working TV studio so if the fire gets any closer to it there will be some very worried executives.

Firefighters are on hand to tackle the blazes and hopefully prevent them from spreading.

The last time Im a Celebrity bosses had to evacuate the camp was in 2015 after a particularly heavy storm.

Its just two months until the hit reality show will be returning to our screens, with Ant McPartlin back presenting alongside Declan Donnelly.
