The jungle camp has long since become a cult. But now the successful format, which is officially known as “I’m a star, get me out of here.” At least this is what “The Sun” reports.
The reason for the possible end of the jungle camp is therefore an expiring contract and the exasperated owner Craig Parker. Since 2003, it has made the Dungay Creek location between New South Wales and Queensland available for production. Jungle Camp is broadcast on UK broadcaster ITV under the name “I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here!” And on RTL under the official title “I’m a star, get me out of here!” The property contract will expire next February and the owner is no longer interested in the format. As “The Sun” reports, he refuses to extend the contract. Does this jeopardize the future of the jungle camp?
A source told the British newspaper: “The relationship between Craig and the producers is very bad. It was always frustrating for him that the program was on his property, but in the past it was worth it given the amount of money he received. ” The source continues: “This year is different. There have always been minor arguments where you felt your opinion was being completely ignored. He’s sick of having cast and crew there. He is not currently being spoken to. “
The announcer has no idea
Meanwhile, British broadcaster ITV does not want to know of any dispute with Craig Parker. Compared to “The Daily Mail,” it says in a statement: “We have a good relationship with the owner and are currently filming season 15 at this location.” The British version of the jungle camp will air in November, the German in January 2017. If the rumors come true, it could be the last seasons of the show.
One thing is certain: “I’m a star, get me out of here!” Polarized. However, we hope that the disputes will be resolved soon. It would be a shame to have to do without the jungle camp and thus the illustrious stars of the Australian bush in the future.
