'I'm A Celebrity' 2014: Leech 'Explosion' Puts A Stop To Sexy 'Bikini Moments'?

I’m A Celebrity’ viewers hoping to tune in to the new series and see one of the show’s famous 'bikini moments' will be disappointed to hear they may be in short supply this year, due to an 'explosion' of leeches.


That’s right, in addition to snakes, spiders and all manner of creepy crawlies, this year’s famous campmates may well also have to share their living space with leeches, thanks to a reported outbreak of the blood-sucking creatures.

Spin-off series, ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here NOW’ presenter Joe Swash has confirmed toThe Mirror that there are leeches “everywhere” in the camp’s water, which could make bathing even more difficult for the stars.

In previous years, contestanst such as Myleene Klass, Amy Willerton and Helen Flanagan have made viewers’ jaws drop as they lounged around camp in their bikinis, but it now sounds as though beekeeping outfits might be more appropriate attire for this year’s stars.

The new series of ‘I’m A Celebrity’ kicks off on Sunday, 16 November, with the campmates being split into two groups upon their arrival.

The two groups have already been revealed, and the public can now vote for which team they’d like to see face the “celebrity slammer”, a jungle-themed prison within this year’s camp.

Group B - compiled of ‘TOWIE’ cast member Gemma Collins, among others - have been named 4/6 favourites to face the “celebrity slammer”, while former ‘‘Allo ‘Allo’ actress Vicki Michelle is already favourite to be booted out of camp first, according to Ladbrokes.
