Show bosses are said to have been forced to come up with a contingency plan after the inclement weather was forecast for the upcoming week in Queensland. A host of celebrities, including former Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas, The Saturdays singer Vanessa White and Coronation Street actress Jennie McAlpine, are due to enter camp on Sunday when the new series kicks off – but the launch may be a damp squib. The famous I’m A Celeb shower scenes have become a hotly-anticipated part of the show as the stars strip down to their swimming trunks and bikinis under a natural waterfall – and bosses are said to be hoping they won’t be affected by the weather.
The 41-year-old TV presenter has reportedly been staying in a rented home streets away from Lisa Armstrong – who he married 11 years ago – and the pair are said to be “effectively leading separate lives”. A friend told The Sun: “Ant is spending time apart from Lisa — he’s said he needs space and everyone respects that.
If this year’s ultra-chummy I’m A Celebrity love-in has left you pining for more bitchy times, presenter Ant McPartlin might just have the answer to your prayers.
