I’m A Celeb plunged into chaos as Covid hits staff just days before grand finale

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here has been plunged into chaos just days ahead of the 2022 final after Covid-19 struck production staff in the jungle.

ITV bosses have since implemented strict measures down under in a bid to protect the celebrity campmates from the virus and ensure Sunday night's (November 27) spectacular finale can run smoothly.

Two members of the team were struck down at the beginning of the week and as a result all crew members have been told face masks are now mandatory.

"Everyone is on high alert given it is so close to the end of the series," a camp insider explained to the Sun.

"The producers have grand plans to make the final bigger than ever so no one is seen without a mask and there have been loads more people queueing up to get themselves tested on site.

"The team also closed down the night shift tent which sells snacks and drinks to the crew in order to give it a deep clean.

"Safety is paramount on a show of this scale and bosses are sure that the strict measures they have in place will mean that the final will still go ahead as planned."

The news comes after bosses revealed they are aiming to pile on the pressure this weekend by making the contestants do their final Bushtucker trials facing each other.

ITV execs have come up with the idea to add extra jeopardy to the final three trials of the series and it will be the first time it has happened.

After completing the legendary Cyclone on Saturday night (November 26) there will be one more eviction leaving three for the final to literally go face-to-face in their last challenge.

The three trials for the final have not yet been chosen but it is understood that one will be an eating trial – which has been dubbed Bushtucker Bonanza in the past in Australia – as this type of trial is popular with the viewers.
