Prior to agreeing to take part in the show, celebrities are pre-warned about all of the possible dangers they could encounter while in the castle.
Stars are warned of the high risk of personal injury and psychological distress before signing their contract, and must make an informed decision after considering all implications of taking part in the show.
Once signed, they are all responsible for their own personal safety by contract, taking the burden away from ITV.
Medical staff who work on I’m A Celeb look after all celebrities as well as the production crew, resulting in very busy days while the show is filming.
All Bushtucker trials are trialled before the selected celebrity takes on the challenge. A staff member must ensure the trial is completely safe, which further increases the risk of injuries on set.
Medical staff are also the first to see stars when they exit the camp. Upon leaving, each celebrity must check in with a medic and visit the show’s psychiatrist, to ensure they are ready to go home.
It has also now been revealed that once a celeb has left the camp, they cannot return under any circumstances.
GMB star Richard Madeley has had to unfortunately pull out of the show, after falling ill and being taken to hospital on Thursday morning.
He revealed on Instagram that while he is absolutely ‘fine’, but he cannot return to the show as he has ‘broken the covid bubble’ following his hospital visit.
Richard said the precautions were taken as campmates’ safety remains ‘the number one priority’.
