I’m A Celebrity has a strict safety procedure to keep its stars safe.
Bosses behind the ITV show do all they can to keep their celebrities safe, as they take on jaw-dropping and dangerous trials and camp out in the castle – or the Australian jungle.
They are faced with snakes, spiders and rats as well as other horrifying creepy crawlies and castle critters as they try and win stars for their fellow campmates.
As Richard Madeley exits the show after a dash to hospital, we take a look at some of the safety protocols in place to keep the show’s stars as safe as possible during their time on the programme.
Naturally, there are high risks of personal injury and distress during the show’s three weeks, so celebrities are fully warned of the risks that they may face during their stint on the programme.
Each celebrity must sign a contract, which says they are aware of the dancers, and that they are responsible for their own personal safety when they are working on the show.
However, this doesn’t mean that each trial and location isn’t properly made safe by the crew.
Every trial is checked thoroughly to make sure it is safe for the stars to take part and they are trialled by a staff member before the celeb even steps foot in the trial’s vicinity.
Medical staff are also always on hand during the show and when they leave the programme, they are checked over by a personal from the medical team whilst they also see a show’s psychiatrist before being allowed to go home.
Because of Covid, it has added a whole another level of regulations and rules to ensure the campmates are kept safe.
Each celebrity – including this year’s stand-ins – is asked to quarantine in Wales for two weeks.
An ITV representative confirmed to The Mirror: “Like last year, our celebrities will do a two week quarantine with regular testing prior to entering the castle, and will then form a bubble for the duration of their time on the show.”
It also means that if any celebrity has to leave the camp – for example, to receive medical attention like Richard Madeley did – they are not allowed to return.
This is why the Good Morning Britain presenter has been forced to leave the show, as he had to break the programme’s Covid bubble in order to attend hospital.
