As always the series will be filmed on a disused banana plantation in dense forest near to Murwillumbah, a remote town in far-north eastern New South Wales, close to the Queensland border. 

A source told The Mirror: ‘We are in constant contact with the NSW fire brigade and are closely monitoring the situation.

‘We currently have no cause for concern. The health and safety of all our production crew and celebrities are of the utmost importance.’  

It’s understood three people have lost their lives as more than 100 fires sweep across the area, which has experienced high temperatures over recent months, with 1,300 firefighters working to put out the blaze.

The news comes as rumoured contestants Ian Wright and Caitlyn Jenner touched down in Brisbane over the weekend. 

Teasing the I’m A Celeb rumours, Caitlyn told The Sun: ‘I am not allowed to talk about this until next week. I am not sure what I can say. I am not allowed to say anything.’ 

The star was then reportedly wished well during her stint on the show, to which she added: ‘Thank you. I don’t know how it works!’

It’s thought she will not speak about her gender reassignment while on the show.

She said in a recent interview with The Mirror: ‘It is not something I talk about. Yes, I had gender confirmation and that for me was important. 

‘For many trans people it is not important to them. But for me it was. Femininity and womanhood is in your brain and in your soul. That is the issue.

‘It is not what is between your legs. So yes, I had it done. But that is all out of respect to me, my privacy but also respect to the community. It is really not something you talk about.’
