I’m A Celebrity chaos as severe storm causes terrible flood that destroys camp

I’m A Celebrity gets off to a chaotic start when floods destroy the camp.

The weather take a drastic turn for the worse just as the celebrities are about to enter their new home for the first time.

Bad storms erupted after they took part in their first challenge, The Edge, over the side of a cliff.

Croc Creek is left in a horrific state as water gushes down into the main camp.

While Snake Rock is also badly hit by the floods, which is particularly worrying as the celebs are meant to be sleeping on the floor.

All camp utensils and sleeping areas are soaked in the process.

It seems the weather is set to get even worse as severe thunderstorms were predicted for Saturday night.

The Australian government’s Bureau of Meteorology released a warning on Saturday afternoon (5am UK time) predicting severe thunderstorms for South East Queensland in the coming hours.

The warning stated: “Damaging winds and large hailstones are likely.”

And a telly insider said: "There’s a huge storm coming – the campmates are going to be thrown in the deep end with the Aussie weather. They haven’t seen anything yet."

Additionally, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services advised that people should move cars “under cover or away from trees” and “seek shelter, preferably indoors and never under trees”.

The danger area shown by the Bureau of Meteorology is around 30km away from camp, but a more localised weather forecast for Murwillumbah also shows a 90% chance of rain this evening and a strong chance of severe thunderstorms.

ITV bosses are understood to be monitoring the situation closely as storms have caused problems in previous years.

An ITV spokesman told the Mirror: "We monitor the weather on an hour by hour basis and we have contingency plans in place for all eventualities."

Will the celebs get a good night’s sleep in their wet new home?

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! starts on Sunday 18 November at 9pm on ITV
