'I'm A Celebrity' Set To Be Hit By Tropical Cyclones
It's almost time for the 2017 series of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here to hit our screens and fans of the show are already heavily speculating on who will be heading into the jungle in the next few weeks. However, the show could be in trouble if weather forecasters are correct.
Because, the set of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here could be in for a battering from storms just as the show gears up for this year's stint.
The show, which is filmed in the Australian jungle, is set to air on 19 November, but if the cyclone that's tipped to hit the area starts early then the show could be ruined, according to the Daily Star.
Forecasters told the paper that there's a 'warning Australia will be hit by a string of major storms' just as the show is due to start.
Jason Nicholls from AccuWeather told the paper: "An early start to the season is expected with a named cyclone forming before the end of December."
Bad news for the celebrities taking part, eh?
Last year's winner Scarlett Moffatt will be back in
Australia, as she hosts the spin-off show. She told Hello, that there's going
to be sunshine, but added that it 'has been forecast with some rain', which she
says, as a Northerner, will make her feel at home.
I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here is currently filmed at the Springbrook National Park in New South Wales, the area has been predicted winds of 170mph as tropical cyclones hit, which could cause a lot of destruction to the set.
The good news is, the show will see Ant and Dec reunited once again. There was some speculation that Ant might not be well enough to take part in the show, after he admitted himself into rehab over prescription pills and alcohol earlier this year.
However, in a new teaser clip released ahead of the show's premier later this month, the pair can be heard shouting, 'let's get ready to jungle!'.
Station controller Kevin Lygo also confirmed Ant's return, saying at the Edinburgh International TV Festival: "Ant is doing really well and we are expecting him to return for I'm a Celebrity."
So now we've just got to hope that the set isn't destroyed by cyclones, and we're all set.
