It has been reported today that the line-up is in serious trouble was many celebrities have dropped out a week before the series is meant to start.
Bosses are struggling to find celebrities in the short space of time.
Two of the celebrities who have reportedly dropped out last minute are Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher and TV chef Rustie Lee.
A source said: “The casting directors at ITV work very hard to get the mix of jungle celebs right, and so this is very disappointing when people drop out,”
“And it means that despite months of planning, they have to rush to draft in replacement celebs and fly them to Australia in time for the show launch. ”
The Sun‘s insider said today: “It can be a mad scramble, as tickets need to be rebooked for both the celebs and the families who fly out to support them while they are in the jungle.
“And it is definitely a headache the show team can do without.”
