I'm A Celebrity's top medic Bob McCarron (aka Medic Bob) has warned this year's female campmates that they could be forced to deal with a fungal issue if they don't keep on top of their personal hygiene.

Eww, eww, ewwwwww.

Speaking on I'm A Celebrity: Extra Camp, Bob revealed that the women are more likely to have "fungus growing on certain body parts"... we're sure you can guess where!

Bob explained: "Most people think of fungus as mushrooms and that is fungus, but we have problem with the cast every year, especially the women funnily enough, growing fungus on certain body parts."

"It is a hygiene thing," he said. "These celebrities that are in the camp, although they are quite healthy, I have been instructing them to use the shower and personal hygiene a little more often."

Bob also shared his expertise when it comes to those jungle critters hanging around camp and the dangers they can impose. He has previously revealed that eight funnel web spiders (the world's most dangerous spider) had been found in a camera hide in camp and viewers recently saw rangers enter camp when the celebs were sleeping to remove a poisonous snake.

Telling Joe Swash about the recent camp intruder, Bob said: "It's what we call a small-eyed snake. It is [dangerous]. It's classified in Australia as one of the deadly snakes, it has killed people."

Turns out there have also been wolf spiders in camp (they are poisonous, but not deadly) and leeches too. Ola actually had a leech on her toe.

"Three days ago, Ola had a leech on her big toe. It was sucking her blood," he revealed. "They normally start quite small, but could go bigger than my thumb in an hour. They love to go into your sock and onto your ankles.

"Leeches they inject an anesthetic and you can't feel them bite you," Bob added.

We are NOT a fan!
