For the anniversary, the twelve stars will not be tormented in Australia as usual, but this time in South Africa with jungle tests. It is still a little Australian, because in the camp near the Kruger National Park where the German format is being shot this year, the Australians usually produce their version of the jungle camp “I’m a Celebrity – Get Me Out of Here ! “. The successful broadcast concept of ITV Studios and RTL remains the same despite the change of location.
