The I'm A Celebrity jungle is apparently already facing challenges as 'bloodthirsty water leeches' have invaded the waterfall shower.

According to The Sun, the bad weather that's threatening the jungle at the moment could make the shower area a 'no-go area'.

The crew are apparently already preparing for the impending bad weather, and are well aware that the creek on set becomes infested with leeches during damp and cool weather.

They believe that the first few days of the series will be particularly affected.

As a result, the leeches are 'tempted out' and will likely flood the shower as a result.

The new series starts on Sunday, and the public are anticipating an action-packed show with some claiming that the line-up is the 'best ever'.

Hopefully some stars' careers will be propelled into the next level, such as our favourite, Scarlett Moffatt...
