First look at I’m a Celeb 2019 camp featuring first ever jungle gym

The I'm A Celebrity camp will feature a jungle gym for the first time – so celebs can bond over boxing or weights.

Olly Nash, series producer: “It is for everybody to use and another reality area for us. We try to create new areas every year and make it different. It is another place celebs can go for conversations.”

The gym is in the area furthest away from main camp down by the creek are. It contains a full set of weights, a pull-up bar and a punch bag complete with boxing gloves for fitness-mad stars like James Haskell to use to fill their time.

However, if the contestants lose lots of trials and don't win stars for camp, the gym may end up not being used as much as the celebrities will be exhausted because of lack of food.

Making an unsurprising return is the jungle shower, under which many celebs have enjoyed an unpleasantly cold soak.


Over the years there have been a number of memorable shower scenes, from Myleene Klass to Nick Knowles in his Speedos.

Also making a comeback is the jungle bath tub, stars can use if they want a hot soak.

But they will need some extra manpower to enjoy lazing in the bath tub, as another campmate will need to use the pump to pour water into it.


The camp looks very similar to last year's, complete with hammocks, the red phone box, logs and a campfire.

However, for the first year ever, campmates may not be able to use a camp fire .

With dozens of bush fires closeby the celebs may not be able not be able to cook, boil water or warm themselves using the flames in the usual manner.

Currently there is a total fire ban in New South Wales across the state. Although the jungle camp in Murwillumbah is a number of kilometres away from any bush fires at the moment, the ban would pose a problem.


Earlier this week the Mirror told how the jungle camp site could be at risk of bush fires as they raged across the East coast of Australia. Thankfully there has been no need to evacuate because wind direction is pushing the closest fires away from camp and at present the series will go ahead as planned.

An ITV spokesman said: “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."
