I’m A Celebrity bosses are reportedly set to ‘enforce two week quarantine’ for the contestants to make sure they do not suffer similar crisis to Strictly Come Dancing.
Producers are reportedly going to create a bubble for the famous faces which will attempt to avoid rows over vaccinations and keep them safe once in the camp at Gwrych Castle in Wales.
A source told The Sun: ‘All of the celebrities will have to quarantine alone for a fortnight. Once this ends they will enter the camp, which is basically then their bubble for the whole series.’

Continuing on, they also said that it will ensure that there won’t be a problem regarding anyone contracting the virus.
They said: ‘ITV thinks this is the best case scenario and will stop any headaches surrounding Covid, which has been a nightmare for the BBC with Strictly.’

Strictly had difficulties at the start of the series because three professionals allegedly refused to the Covid vaccination, while Tom Fletcher and Amy Dowden tested positive for the disease – forcing them to miss an episode.
Last year, the show also enforced a self-isolation process for two weeks and also took place in Wales because of travel restrictions.
They were also required the celebrities to wear proximity monitors which flashed and buzzed when they came too close to one another.
Bosses also scaled down the production team, and had cameras set up already on-site so cameramen didn’t have to be on the set.
