The UK version of reality TV series I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is due to start filming on Sunday here in Australia.

However, the launch of the show may now be threatened due to the bushfires currently raging through parts of NSW and Queensland.

The ITV show holds it’s camp for their celebs in dense forest on a disused banana plantation near Murwillumbah, located in northern New South Wales and close to the Queensland border.

The closest fire to the camp is reportedly just 10 kilometres away in Lamington National Park.

The Sun is reporting that show bosses are “closely monitoring” the current bushfire situation and will consider the dangers ahead of the shows launch.

“We are in constant contact with the NSW fire brigade and are closely monitoring the situation,” said a spokesperson for ITV.

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

Some big names are set to head into the I’m A Celebrity UK jungle this year, including Caitlyn Jenner.

This comes as a state of emergency has been announced for NSW. Parts of Sydney also face catastrophic fire danger today, with incredibly hot and dry conditions predicted.
