The forthcoming series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here has been thrown into chaos after the jungle camp was hit by a huge storm during rehearsals.

According to The Sun the weather forced production staff to evacuate the camp in Queensland, Australia, which is being prepared for the show’s tenth anniversary series later this year.

And the paper reports that show bosses are concerned storms could even lead to the series being forced off the air.

“Producers have been holding crisis talks all week after the camp was engulfed by torrential rain,” a source said.

“It turned into a mudslide – roads were blocked and water levels in the nearby creeks got dangerously high. The high winds also meant huge branches fell from trees and littered the camp – making it very unsafe on the ground.”

The insider added that there was also concern about the rise in cyclone warnings in the area, with producers concerned that one might hit the camp during the series – and as a result emergency evacuation plans have been drawn up for the celebrities taking part.

“Bosses are really worried about cyclones hitting the camp while the celebrities are in there,” the source said.

“Lots of meetings have taken place to ensure contingencies are in place to evacuate them if the weather gets bad. Our main concern is the celebrities and making sure they’re safe.”

The series is due to return next month, with Imogen Thomas and Dannii Minogue’s boyfriend Kris Smith among those rumoured to be heading for the jungle.
