I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! How Does It Work?
On the 1st of February we will see 10, still yet to be named, celebrities enter a South African jungle and earn their way to survival, with the help of the public.
Channel 10 have been swamping our televisions for weeks with promos for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here and its got us wondering just how the show works.
The most hyped show of 2015 will be aired live five nights a week from Kruger National Park.
They get all of life’s luxuries that they take for granted taken away from them at the start of the show – no mobile phones, make up, assistants. Only basic staples and (hopefully) their sanity. They do however get to pick one luxury item to take with them.
We, as viewers, will also get to choose what the celebrities will have to endure while they’re in the jungle.

“The Audience decides who competes in what we call ‘bush tucker trials’ each day and the celebrities put forward to face what we throw at them are competing to win meals for their fellow camp mates. Then we’ve got what’s called ‘celebrity chest’ – that’s where we decide who competes in a variety of challenges. And we’ve got a number of ideas up our sleeve,” revealed Network Ten’s head of entertainment Stephen Tate.
Stephen also revealed that the first episode is when the 10 celebrities will be revealed to both the public and to each other for the first time.
They will be given a safety briefing about the jungle environment plus tips on interacting – or avoiding – the various predators they may come across. After that, they get put into the camp where they will stay for several weeks.
If they want to be returned to their normal lifestyles they are free to leave at any time. All they need to do is scream ‘im a celebrity – get me out of here!’ However, the longer they stay in the game, the better chance they have of raising money for their chosen charities.

The show has had a successful run in the US and UK, with many high profile celebrities succeeding with the everyday challenges. The biggest rumour that is still to be put to rest is that Melissa Joan Hart, best known for her role on Sabrina The Teenage Witch, will be a special US guest on the show. This story came about when she started following the official twitter page of the show last week.
