According to Medic Bob McCarron, the crew have discovered more slithery creatures lurking in the jungle than any other series – and they've warned the celebrities to be on their guard.

He told Daily Star that the male campmates in particular had been advised to, um, keep their male parts safe and secure…

"Snakes can be attracted to things that look like other snakes," he said. "Sometimes they will make their way to a branch, for example, to check if it's a friend or foe. The celebrities need to be on the lookout this year as we've had more snakes on site than ever before."

Not only do the celebrities have to be on the lookout for snakes, the medic revealed last week there had been numerous tick and pest bites, as well as celebrities and crew needing treated for dehydration and dizziness.

As well as creepy crawlies, the celebrities have also been plagued by bad weather. Storm conditions became so extreme this week that the stars were evacuated from camp to the safety of the Bush Telegraph.

On spinoff show Get Me Out of Here NOW!, former contestant-turned-presenter Joe Swash said the biggest danger during jungle storms was falling trees, which is why celebrities are moved inside.
