The big launch of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! was seemingly thrown into jeopardy today as a MASSIVE thunderstorm hit the set just 24 hours before the show is set to start. Presenters Ant and Dec were caught up in a major downpour in the jungle as bad weather threatened to hamper preparations for tomorrow’s big kick-off.
The pair have been in the Australian jungle helping with final preparations ahead of the big day, but work seemingly ground to a halt when a terrifying storm rolled in. However, the big I’m A Celeb launch appeared to be under threat when the set was hit with heavy rain, as well as thunder and lightning.
Ant and Dec were caught in the downpour and posted a picture of themselves soaking wet as they attempted to work in the jungle. In a post on their official Instagram page, they wrote: “Well that took a turn! It’s gone from from glorious sunshine to fork lightning and pelting rain. We got absolutely soaked!”
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returns to TV tomorrow night. Stars including Carol Vorderman, Lisa Snowdon and Scarlett Moffatt will be battling the difficult weather conditions in the outdoor camp.
