I'm A Celebrity stars 'to quarantine for 2 weeks before jungle arrival'

I'm A Celebrity Presenters- Ant & Dec

'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here' campmates may have to spend two weeks in quarantine before they head into the jungle this year, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' stars may have to quarantine for two weeks before heading into the jungle.

ITV bosses are keen to ensure the show takes place later this year, amid the coronavirus pandemic, and that could mean enforcing a fortnight of lockdown for campmates, which would result in stars spending a total of five weeks away from their families.

A source said: "'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.

"They understand that for some people, the thought of maybe having to spend more than a month away from their families might be off-putting."

However, if the measure is put in place it will be for the health and safety of those working on the programme, which is hosted by Ant and Dec.

The source added to The Sun newspaper's Bizarre TV column: "But in the grand scheme of things, 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."

'Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness' star Carole Baskin and former Aston Villa footballer Paul Merson are among the celebrities linked to the new series of the show.

Other names talked about as potential campmates this year are singer Jessie J, TV presenter Matt Baker, and former 'Strictly Come Dancing' pro AJ Pritchard.
