In a separate incident, a woman was found dead in 'suspicious circumstances' in Murwillumbah, which is just ten minutes from the camp where the celebs - including Melanie Sykes, Jake Quickenden and Kendra Wilkinson - are staying.

Both incidents have led to security on the ITV show being put on high alert to ensure both the stars of the show and staff are kept safe.

An ITV source said safety of the celebrities was a huge priority, saying: "We have a security team on site. The safety and security of our celebrities and crew is of the utmost importance."
