I'm A Celebrity Producers Are 'Closely Monitoring' The Australian Bushfires

Bosses at the I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here camp have admitted that they are 'closely monitoring' the situation regarding the wildfire chaos in Australia.

The ITV show is back on UK screens next Sunday, but the production team is thought to be in a state of readiness following the horrific fires that are currently sweeping through the Australian outback.

Large parts of New South Wales and Queensland have been crippled by the bushfires, and now the danger is moving relatively close to the I'm a Celeb camp.

In fact, the fires have reached 10 kilometres from where the celebrities and crew will be. The camp is situated in Murwillumbah, which is not too far from the border between Queensland and New South Wales.

While there is no immediate cause for concern, and the nearest outbreak of fire has been at Lamington National Park, about six miles away, the producers have admitted that they're keeping a close eye on the fire situation.

Speaking to The Mirror, an ITV spokesperson said: "We are in constant contact with the NSW fire brigade and are closely monitoring the situation.

Three people are thought to have been killed already as a result of the 100 fires that have ravaged NSW and Queensland.

More than 1,300 firefighters are working across both states to attempt to bring the fires under control. The deputy mayor of Tweed Shire, Chris Cherry, also addressed the situation with specific regard to the I'm a Celeb Murwillumbah base camp.

She said: "Our main concern for the area is bushfires. It has been very hot and dry here in the past months and although this is a rain forest area, bushfires are now an issue we need to seriously think about. It's bad."

During the show's two-week stint, we'll see the contestants vying against the public vote, each other and the cruelty of the production team.

Expect bug-eating, horrendous effluence and creepy-crawlies terrifying the various campers.

Hopefully no wildfires, though.
