I’m A Celebrity 2016: Carol Vorderman is OUT as “killer” heatwave puts campers at risk!

by Lynn Rowlands

Last night, Carol Vorderman became the latest star to be voted out of the I’m A Celebrity jungle.

However, she didn’t seem particularly sad that her time in camp was over, telling presenters Ant and Dec that she had had a “wonderful time”.

Maths genius Carol said, “I just love being around fantastic young people,” before revealing that she hopes Olympian Sam Quek wins the show.

But while Carol will now spend a few days in the lap of luxury at the Palazzo Versace hotel, her former campmates look set for a seriously uncomfortable few days…

And that’s because according to The Sun, Australian weather forecasters are warning that a “freak heatwave” is headed to the region where the show’s camp is based.

The publication’s article states, “Campmates will struggle in 35 degree heat with ‘extreme’ UV levels.

“They will also face high humidity levels as warm as 47 degrees, or 117 Fahrenheit.”


Apparently, worried I’m A Celebrity bosses have enlisted extra medical staff to be on-hand in case any of the show’s remaining campmates suffer the symptoms of heatstroke.

They are said to be most concerned about former EastEnders star Larry Lamb, who, at the age of 69, is particularly susceptible to being hit hard by the excessive heat.

An ITV insider said, “All the contestants need to keep hydrated and be reapplying sun cream regularly.

“This weather is dangerous and can kill.

“The older contestants, particularly Larry, could find themselves in bother if they try and do anything too strenuous in that heat.”

Tony Hucker, the director of patient safety in the area, added, “Heatstroke can actually kill you.

“Once your brain gets to the temperature of about 40 degrees, it’s dangerous.

“It can be a fatal outcome.”

It remains to be seen if the I’m A Celebrity Bushtucker Trials will be adversely affected by the weather, but we can’t imagine anyone is going to be comfortable standing around in the sun…

And certainly the campers surely won’t be happy to have to carry out extremely physical tasks in such heat.

But of course, if and when we hear if the trials are being affected by the heatwave, we’ll let you know.
