News has surfaced that the show's camp has been battered by wet weather, while it has also been claimed that leeches are in the waterfall shower - which is famously used for the jungle pin-ups to show off sizzling frames.

Amir was spotted touching down at Brisbane Airport, Australia on Saturday, all but confirming rumours he will enter the celebrity jungle next week. The boxer, 30, who has recently reunited with his pregnant wife Faryal Makhdoom, looked in fantastic spirits despite the 23 hour flight from the UK, playfully shadow boxing as he walked through the
terminal.
The Olympic silver medallist, who couldn't keep the smile off his face, kept things casual cool for his arrival, donning a navy blue hoodie, black t-shirt and teal joggers for the flight.
He finished his outfit with black Adidas trainers and a cream, green and white shoulder bag. Amir looked perfectly groomed despite having stepped right off a long-haul flight with his locks perfectly quiffed and rocking a neat beard.
