According to The Sun, insiders were unclear whether the show would go ahead later this year after the TV industry was thrown into chaos by COVID-19.
A source at the time said: ‘I’m A Celebrity is six months away but bosses are holding meetings about how they can ensure it still goes ahead in the current climate. A raft of measures are being looked at.
‘One of the most recent plans was to employ a crew that is 95 per cent made up of Australian workers to overcome the issues surrounding flying to different countries and the quarantine restrictions.
‘This would mean a lot of the show’s UK crew missing out on their annual big gig but ITV are having to seriously consider every option.’
The insider added that due to the changing nature of the pandemic, every possible situation was being planned for.
