A source told The Sun: ‘ITV are in constant contact with the Australian authorities and are making sure everything they do is in line with their requirements.

‘Part of that is that there will be no huge entourage waiting for celebrities to leave the jungle.

‘And no friends also means no Versace hotel, where they have always stayed in the lap of luxury. When celebs are evicted they’ll be on the first plane home.’

It is unclear if celebrities will be tested for COVID-19 prior to entering the jungle and whether they will have to quarantine for a period of time once they arrive in the land down under. 

MailOnline has contacted I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Outta Here representatives for further comment.

Earlier this week, ITV announced that I’m A Celebrity will be back for its 20th series later this year after the global pandemic plummeted it’s future into question.

The show’s bosses have reportedly set aside a £15 million budget and are ‘sparing no expense’ to get the jungle on air.

Despite the hefty investment, this season’s contestants won’t experience the same lavish treatment as previous cast-mates after their exit from the show’s base camp. 

Usually, the celebrities reside in luxury accommodation with friends and family after leaving the I’m A Celebrity jungle as the rest of the series plays out and a final king or queen is crowned. 

The 2020 upcoming series will be a stripped-back version of past seasons as no friends or family will be travelling overseas to support their loved one. 

Instead, celebrities will be sent back on a plane straight away to avoid possibly contracting or spreading coronavirus.
