I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestants are reportedly being subjected to extreme and record-breaking temperatures in camp.

According to reports, the likes of Gemma Collins, Craig Charles and Melanie Sykes are having to endure 45-degree Celsius temperatures that have prompted crew to be on "red alert" for signs of illness.

The stars will be having to take plenty of showers to stay cool.

A source told The Mirror: "The camp has had the worst possible start with freak high temperatures. It has made everyone tired and weak.

"This will be the toughest ever series to survive. We are on red alert to make sure no one becomes seriously ill."

Yikes. And as if searing temperatures isn't enough to deal with, insiders have pointed out those baking hot days will bring plenty of snakes out of their hiding spots.

This year's I'm A Celebrity lineup.

A source told the newspaper that snakes love the heat so they'll be out in their droves. Probably not what the campers – especially Foggy – really wants!

Crew already discovered a venomous snake lurking among camp before the stars arrived, and last night poor Foggy was the first camper to face a Bushtucker Trial which involved being shut in a box with swarms of snakes. Gross. Gross. Gross.

And just to add to all the drama, wild bushfires are burning nearby.

Drama, drama, drama!

I'm A Celebrity continues tonight on ITV.
