This year’s I’m A Celebrity contestants will have a very different experience in the jungle, compared to previous years.
Bosses have made big changes for this year’s show to go ahead, and this includes a ban on family and friends flying to Australia to greet their loved ones.
Celebrities also won’t get the same five-star treatment when they leave the I’m A Celeb camp, as the stars will no long be staying at the lavish Versace hotel.
A source told The Sun: “ITV are in constant contact with the Australian authorities and are making sure everything they do is in line with their requirements.”
“Part of that is that there will be no huge entourage waiting for celebrities to leave the jungle.”
“And no friends also means no Versace hotel, where they have always stayed in the lap of luxury. When celebs are evicted they’ll be on the first plane home.”
ITV recently confirmed the series would return later this year, after fans questioned whether it would go ahead during the coronavirus pandemic.
In a statement, ITV said the series will return “in the autumn”, and they also confirmed a one-off special to mark 20 years since the show first aired.
The documentary will be called I’m a Celebrity: A Jungle Story, and will celebrate all the very best moments of the show’s stellar 19 year history.
A host of well-known faces have already been tipped to appear on the next season, including Strictly pro-dancer AJ Pritchard, former England footballer John Barnes, Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon, and TV presenter Vernon Kay.
Fans have also been rooting for Maura Higgins to appear on the popular series.
