‘I’m A Celebrity’ Stars Must Quarantine For Two Weeks Before The Jungle

This year comes with a new challenge as the COVID-19 virus means more measures need to be put into place to ensure the safety of the cast and crew of the show. This means that finalists of 'I'm A Celebrity' would have to spend a total of five weeks away from home and their loved ones.

It has been said that ‘I’m A Celebrity’ stars must quarantine for two weeks before entering the jungle due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The British survival reality television show features celebrity stars who must live in a jungle without any comforts and compete against each other to win the title of King or Queen of the jungle.

This year comes with a new challenge as the COVID-19 virus means more measures need to be put into place to ensure the safety of the cast and crew of the show. This means that finalists of ‘I’m A Celebrity’ would have to spend a total of five weeks away from home and their loved ones.

A TV source told The Sun: “I’m A Celeb is one of the toughest reality shows out there and adding a two-week quarantine period is only going to make it harder.”

“The welfare of the campmates is the biggest concern, so having them possibly put in quarantine for a fortnight lessens the risk of anyone falling ill.” – The source added.

The source went on to say: “They understand that for some people, the thought of maybe having to spend more than a month away from their families might be offputting.”

Adding that ‘having this two-week plan in place is one simple way of being able to ensure the health of those taking part — and the people working on the show.’

Contestants that have been invited for this year are thought to be singer Jessie J and Tiger King’s Carole Baskin, amongst other big names.

It has also been reported that ITV bosses would not be flying friends or family members of the contestants to the jungle once the show was given the go-ahead to return in November.

A source told The Sun: “Having no friends or family flown out will be a big blow to celebrities.”

“Producers have even involved them in recent years by taking them into the jungle in the final days to create heartfelt scenes.” – The source added.

There may be plans to have video calls filmed of the celebrities talking to their loved ones back home, so that there is less traveling and cause for an outbreak of the COVID-19 virus.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens this year with the 20th series of ‘I’m A Celebrity’, what we do know is that the celebrity stars will already be pining for their families, and this year their homesickness may be worse than ever before.
