The truth is that - despite the rumours - the first six seasons of I'm A Celeb were filmed in the sprawling landscapes of South Africa's Kruger National Park. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the series was filmed in Murwillumbah in New South Wales in 2021 and 2022.
And while technically speaking it wasn't exactly a jungle, Murwillumbah is still full of rainforest and farmland areas. Not to mention, the Aussie location comes with its own share of creepy crawlies, dangers and everything else we've come to expect from I'm A Celeb.
In 2023 the series will be returning to its roots, with hosts Julia Morris and Dr Chris Brown touching down in Africa ahead of the series premiere on April 2.
Joining them on their journey are a Brownlow Medal Winner, a Comedian, TV Host, a Boxing Lightweight and a Celebrity Chef, with more celebrity clues to be revealed soon.
The elements are sure to push the new contestants to their limits. Take previous contestants like Jess Eva, for example, who faced a horrifying ordeal after bugs crawled into her ears and got stuck in there for weeks.
"When I was in the jungle my ears started to hurt and I went to the medic a bit and then over time it got worse and worse to the point where I couldn't sleep, there was so much pain," Jess revealed on Triple M at the time.
"I think I might've got it from the pool [on I'm A Celeb]. There's a big lake pool that gets a little bit manky sometimes with bugs in it," she speculated.
I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! premieres on April 2, 2023, on 10 and 10 play on demand.
