I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here is a survival reality show starring celebrities from different industries. The show series started back in 2002. This year’s show participants include Sam Thompson, Nigel Farage, Jamie Lynn Spears, Danielle Harold, and many more.
The show mainly focuses on celebrities who are living together in extreme conditions in a forest or other such areas. The group of celebrities are given certain tasks in which they will have to excel in order to reach the finals. They have undertaken some deadly challenges to secure additional amenities, food, or treats for individuals or groups.
The TV show I’m A Celebrity ….Get Me out of here has witnessed the trespassing of a venomous snake into the sets of the show. The snake had entered the camps of the show and caused fear inside the camp. The rangers or other team members usually are not allowed to have any connection with inmates as per the rules of the show.
But the rangers had to enter to ensure the safety of the campers. The snake was removed from Sam Thompson’s bed even without waking the star.
The snake that managed to enter the premises was the species of Cryptophis Nigrescens. They are one of the most venomous snakes in the forests, and the bite should be treated with heavy concern. The snake was glossy and dark grey in color with a pink belly, and they were 50 to 90 cm in length.
The Australian Museum stated that the venom of this snake contains a long-acting myotoxin that attacks the muscle tissues of the human body. The reports say that the bites from the snake have caused many fatal cases in the past. The bites require urgent medical concerns and should be treated wisely.
It has only been a month since some of the snakes were removed from the show camps. The Health and Safety Officer commented that there are a lot of snakes found lately in the area of the I’m A Celebrity camps this year. He added that it was possibly because of the humidity in the particular site.
The Executive Producer of the show said that they had sighted many snakes in the region where they were camping. They had removed a record number of snakes from the site till now.
