Ant and Dec “hope” I’m a celebrity coming back to Australia

The Jungle Side of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! was hit by some storms.

The bad weather news from Australia comes as the ITV show prepares to return to its original home later this year.

TV bosses confirmed their plans to return Down Under on Thursday after being forced to film in Wales for the past two years.

Rosemary Newell, Director of Content, said: “We expect I’m A Celebrity to return to Australia in November when it will reach over 11 million viewers.”

The New South Wales town of Murwillumbah, where the show is filmed, has been hit by some pretty terrible storms.

The floods were so bad that some families had to evacuate their homes.

Environmental activist Emma Hannigan – who lives in the area – told him Daily Star : “This is climate change. It’s happening here, it’s happening now, and what else does our government need to take action in this decade?”

Speaking of the famous campsite, she added: “There’s been minor flooding, but there’s more damage along the way.”

I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! had been held in the Australian jungle for several years but had to be transferred to the UK due to travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking about returning to Australia last month, show hosts Ant and Dec stressed they had enjoyed their stay in Wales but it was time to return home.

“Nothing against Wales,” Dec declared on The One Show, with Ant adding, “We love Wales.”

“But you know, Australia is [I’m A Celeb’s] home and we would love to go back there – and we can!”

BBC presenter Alex Jones added that it’s been “good for a couple of years” to have the ITV show in Wales but it’s time for a return to the jungle.

“That’s what we’re hoping for, touch wood,” said an upbeat Dec, as Rylan joked that the pair were “looking forward to the holiday.”

“You get a much better tan in New South Wales than in Wales,” joked one laughing ant while chatting on the sofa of The One Show in February.
