I’m A Celebrity flooding fears put final in jeopardy as camp will be hit by 25 hours of solid rain from tonight


FLOODING fears are set to put the highly anticipated I’m A Celebrity final in jeopardy.

Weather apps are predicting up to 25 hours of solid rain from this evening, causing chaos in the camp.

Could solid rain jeopardise the I’m A Celeb final?
Gwrych Castle has already suffered at the hands of the two recent storms

Celebs left in the north Wales castle are David Ginola, Danny Miller, Matty Lee, Simon Gregson, Frankie Bridge, Louise Minchin and Adam Woodyatt – who are all vying for the title of King or Queen of the Castle.

But it’s set to be a wet build-up to the final on Sunday evening hosted by Ant and Dec.

Abergele – the location of Gwrych Castle – is due to have rain from 5.30pm tonight to 6.30pm tomorrow.

It’s yet another concern for producers, after it was revealed yesterday that Storm Barra has caused chaos at the I’m A Celebrity castle.

Wind brought down a huge tree and caused a landslide as the site was battered by heavy wind and rain, and caused a large rock to fall behind the Grade I listed building.

A source said: “Production and ITV bosses are hoping this is as bad as things get with Barra.

“Obviously Storm Arwen caused them no end of headaches. But this time around it’s been predicted that the wind won’t be as bad.

“That said, it’s still been wet and blowy enough to bring down a huge tree branch, and cause a rock formation to slide behind the castle, ending up on a production path.

“They’re crossing their fingers that this is the worst of it and they can get to the end of the series with no further delays.”

The show was plunged into chaos last week and was sensationally pulled off air for three days after the set was battered by Storm Arwen.

In a shock move, the stars were evacuated from the castle and returned to their quarantine, and did not return for over 48 hours.

We told yesterday how producers fear that the iconic Celebrity Cyclone challenge will be axed because of the fresh storm.

They are worried that the challenge – which sees stars attempting to grab stars from a slippery hill as they’re blasted with wind, water cannons, foam and balls – will freeze over.

It could lead to a very wet final for the celebrities
