Torrential rains and electrical storms pose the biggest threat ever to the stars in the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here camp.

Producers have held crisis talks after the severe weather forced the celebrities to take shelter in the Bush Telegraph.

The weather forecasts predict more electrical storms, strong winds, hailstones and flash flooding. Trials executive Chris Lore told the Mirror: “It’s the hardest we’ve ever been hit.”

And a source added: “This is the worst the weather has been for a series and plans are being made for all possible outcomes.”

Meanwhile, new arrival David Van Day managed to get on the wrong side of his fellow I’m A Celebrity contestants almost as soon as he entered camp.

After the ex-Dollar star and Timmy Mallett were freed from prison they joined the others, and show bosses revealed no extra bed would be provided, but that two campers would have to sleep in a nearby cave.

Timmy volunteered to sleep in the cave but while the others debated who would join them, David snapped: “Can you hurry up and decide so I know what bed I’m staying in.”

Nicola McLean, Joe Swash, Robert Kilroy-Silk and Simon Webbe were all indignant and a worried Timmy told David: “You’re going to set the cat among the pigeons. You’re going to have a ding dong with quite a few people.”

Simon told him: “Don’t come in here and tell me it’s my ego because I’ll take your s**t and take it down there. Your bed!”

George Takei joined in, telling David: “You come in after nights in hotels, and one night in the cage. You have not paid your dues.”
