According to The Sun, ITV bosses are “determined” to continue filming the show in Queensland’s Springbrook National Park and will require campmates to quarantine for a fortnight before filming the upcoming series.

“I’m A Celeb is one of the toughest reality shows out there and adding a two-week quarantine period is only going to make it harder,” the publication’s source said.

“The welfare of the campmates is the biggest concern, so having them possibly put in quarantine for a fortnight lessens the risk of anyone falling ill.”
