The upcoming series of ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’ has been thrown into chaos before its even begun, according to reports.
While a couple of celebs have already landed in Australia, ‘Desperate Housewives’ actress Teri Hatcher, Josie Cunningham and TV cook Rustie Lee have all reportedly had a last minute change of heart.
According to The Sun On Sunday, Josie’s dreams of setting up camp and chowing down on rice and beans have been ruined, because she didn’t realise how long it took to get a passport.
A pal tells the paper: “She has never had a passport before and she had no idea it took so long to get one.
“She thought they could be done just one or two days in advance. Josie saw ‘I’m A Celebrity’ as the chance of a lifetime, but now there’s absolutely no chance she’ll be able to get on it.
“ITV really aren’t best pleased with her at the moment.”
Meanwhile, ‘Desperate Housewives’ actress Teri has been forced to cancel her trip Down Under due to medical issues, while Rustie’s reasons for leaving are unclear.
“The casting directors at ITV work very hard to get the mix of jungle celebs right, and so this is very disappointing when people drop out,” a source tells The Sun. “And it means that despite months of planning, they have to rush to draft in replacement celebs and fly them to Australia in time for the show launch.”
Thankfully, plenty of celebs are still on their way to Australia and ‘Coronation Street’ star Craig Charles has already been spotted arriving in Brisbane, along with Nadia Forde, golfer Rory McIlroy’s former girlfriend.
‘TOWIE’ star Gemma Collins is also expected to arrive, however, reports that she phoned police after allegedly being involved in a physical altercation with her boyfriend cast doubts on whether she’ll make it to the jungle.
