I’M A Celebrity’s famous shower scenes may be in jeopardy as a plague of blood-sucking bugs could be about to invade the set.
Incoming bad weather may render the waterfall area, where the contestants usually shower, a no-go area, as the creek becomes infested with leeches.
The Daily Star reports that the crew are anticipating the camp’s location to be battered by wet weather during the first few days of filming.
The bloodsucking creatures are tempted out by this, and it means that the waterfall shower – made famous thanks to the bevy of bikini-clad contestants who’ve lathered up in it – would be out of bounds some days.
This is because the creek on the set becomes infested with leeches during damp and cool weather.
The waterfall shower has become famous thanks to the likes of Myleene Klass and Vicki Pattison donning their bikinis to enjoy a wash.
The news of potential problems comes just days before the 2017 edition of the show kicks-off on Sunday.
The initial line-up for this year’s show has been confirmed and will see a mixed bag of stars heading into the outback.
The female contestants are WAG Rebekah Vardy, MIC’s Georgia Toffolo, Corrie’s Jennie McAlpine, The Saturdays singer Vanessa White, and comedian Shappi Khorsandi.
They will be joined by Stanley Johnson (father to Boris), boxer Amir Khan, Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas, YouTuber Jack Maynard, and ex-Chelsea star Denis Wise.
Back to present the show are TV faves Ant and Dec, while Scarlett Moffatt and Joel Dommett have been lined-up alongside Joe Swash to present spin-off show Extra Camp.

WHAT can’t you miss on TV tonight? Our guide to the must-see shows…
Love, Lies & Records, 9pm, BBC One
Kate’s (Ashley Jensen, right) life is already complicated, but she must deal with a few extra issues with a six-person household sharing one bathroom, daughter Lucy bunking off school and a discovery about her partner Rob.
Add to that her uptight colleague Judy still lording it over her with the USB stick of doom and it’s little wonder actress Ashley spends ages looking frazzled.
We wonder if there’s going to be an emotional wedding of the week every episode, and today’s comes courtesy of same-sex couple Lindsay (Paul Dallison, left) and Frank, who never believed they’d be able to get married.
Elsewhere, Rob’s work collides with Kate’s suspicions about people-trafficking in the area, which adds a sinister undertone to the schmaltz.
Another easy watch with solid performances.
Trump: An American Dream, 9pm, Channel 4
He may be the President of the United States right now, but it wasn’t always so good for Donald Trump (above, in 1990) – indeed, at the start of the 90s he was facing massive professional and personal issues.
Tonight’s penultimate instalment tells of the troubles Trump faced, including financial worries for
his business, but also of how he managed to bounce back. Intriguing.
NEW! Blitz: The Bombs That Changed Britain, 9pm, BBC Two
On 7 September 1940, a bomb fell on Martindale Road in East London.
It was only one of 450,000 bombs that Hitler rained down on Britain in the eight-month Blitz.
But by tracing the effects of that single explosion and talking to survivors such as Sandra Belchamber, this documentary gives a powerful picture of how the destiny of our nation changed.
Ugly House To Lovely House With George Clarke, 8pm, Channel 4
Having a baby can be stressful enough without the added pressure of also redesigning your home, but it’s a challenge Darren and Hannah from East Sussex have taken on.
Fortunately, they’ve got help from George Clarke (above) and architect Carl Turner – but can the experts save the project when the roof starts leaking and the cash begins to dry up?

NOONE is safe in the I’m a Celebrity jungle – even beloved TV presenters Ant and Dec.
The ITV jungle’s beloved Medic Bob revealed on Wednesday night’s Extra Camp that he helped remove a venomous snake just last WEEK from the bridge that the Geordie duo grace every episode.
Speaking to Scarlett Moffatt on the spin-off show of the jungle favourite, Bob revealed that he has been leading a team to help keep the really dangerous critters from the campers.
He told the reigning: “We keep it quiet from the celebrities in camp but last week I removed a venomous brown tree snake actually climbing along the drawbridge where Ant and Dec walk every day.”
As the team behind the show revealed their shock, Medic Bob revealed they also found a small-eyed snake on site as well.
When presenter Joe Swash made a joke off-camera about “knowing about small-eyed snakes”, Medic Bob decided to make a joke at the hosts expense, and said: “Joe knows all about small-eyed snakes!”
However, he then revealed how serious the sweet-sounding viper could be and added: “That’s a very dangerous snake, and could actually be a killer.
“We found it in the trials area.”
Before I’m A Celeb returned last Sunday, bosses sent in daredevil experts to remove the venomous Australian funnel web spider from the exact area where the celebrities will sleep.
The camp mates have already been warned about being careful of ticks that could leave them PARALYZED.
LATEST FROM THE JUNGLE
The Australian paralysis ticks are around 4mm in size and are rife on the east coast of Australia.
There are more than 500 recorded cases of Australians developing a meat allergy after being bitten by the tick, but the condition doesn’t develop instantly.
It can take as long as six months, meaning even if they do get bitten, the campmates won’t miss out on any bushtucker meals they win.

I’m A Celeb’s Jennie McAlpine breaks down as she opens up about her late dad
JENNIE McApline broke down in tears on I’m A Celeb tonight as she opened up about her late dad. Mental health campaigner Tom McAlpine died in March and as the campmates shared their reasons for being in the jungle, Jennie, 33, started to cry as she explained why she was there. She told the camp: […]
JENNIE McApline broke down in tears on I’m A Celeb tonight as she opened up about her late dad.
She told the camp: “I’ve had a funny old year… oh dear,” as her voice broke.
The scene then cut to the Bush Telegraph where Jennie confessed: “I thought, ‘I’ve got to tell these people the truth, but I thought, I’m gonna – you know.”
Back at camp, Jamie Lomas asked her: “You alright love?”
To which the Fizz actress let the tears flow, as she said: “Yeah it’s good – I lost my dad earlier this year, so…”
As Rebekah Vardy went over to hug her, Jamie soothed: “He’d be really proud of you for doing this, darling.”
Fondly remembering Tom, she continued: “We were like bestest, bestest friends, he would have told me to do it. I said before I came he told me to do things that I’m brave enough to do.”
The rest of the camp also became overwhelmed with emotion and went over to hug the crying star.
Ahead of her time in the jungle she told The Sun: “I lost my Dad earlier this year and that was a big thing.
“But I knew he would have told me to do it. He always told me to do stuff and he always encouraged me.
“He kept saying ‘Give it a go to find out if you are good enough or not.’ And so that was a big part of it.”
Mental health campaigner Tom, who was awarded an OBE from the Queen in 2012, died on March 2 – with Jennie telling her followers that she will always love him in a tribute post.

In an emotional Twitter post the 33-year-old, who plays Fizz in the ITV soap, said: “On behalf of our family, I’d like to thank everyone for their kind words. It’s wonderful to hear from our many people who Dad supported (he never used the world help!) and encouraged and changed the lives of.
“To me and my brother Thomas he was our lovely Dad. We will always love him and be thankful for that.”
