Is I'm a Celebrity moving to a new location? Find out here

It's one of the year's most popular reality series ever since it launched in 2003. But according to a new report, I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! could be moving to a new home! The Australian Government has urged show bosses to move the camp away from the New South Wales jungle to a beachier home, in Kangaroo Island.

"With a third of the island covered by national parks, Kangeroo Island is teeming with creatures not found anywhere else, most of which we're more than happy for people to eat on TV," agent general Bill Muirhead wrote in a letter to ITV exec Kevin Lygo, reports The Mirror.

Bill also claimed that the move will be a great revamp for the show since its 15-year run. He added: "Looking forward to 2020, could it be time for a change? I ask you to consider Kangaroo Island, a place pulsating with all the wonder and weirdness Australia has to offer, an island with a name that seems straight out of a story of buccaneers and bushrangers."

Clearly having done his research, in an attempt to seal the deal, Bill further quipped: "Just think what you could do with the assorted members of TOWIE, Made in Chelsea, the ginger one from Girls Aloud and anyone else you Poms want to see the back of." Kangaroo Island is Australia's third largest island and is home to several species, including wallabies, seals, koalas and kangaroos.
