This year’s contestants are apparently letting hygiene standards at camp slip.
The contestants on this year’s ‘I'm a celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!’ have been advised by the camp doctor to shower more.
The show’s infamous waterfall shower is usually popular with contestants, but this year the celebs seem a little more shower-shy and it’s reportedly led to a fungus outbreak in camp.

Speaking on the show's spin-off, ‘I'm A Celebrity... Extra Camp’, the camp medic Doctor Bob said: “Most people think of fungus as mushrooms but we have problems with the cast every year - especially women growing fungus on certain body parts
"'I've been instructing them to use the shower and personal hygiene a little bit more often," he added.
Viewers of the show have seen plenty of dancer Ola Jordan and model Lisa Snowden shower, but some of the other contestants, such as ‘Gogglebox’s’ Scarlett Moffatt, have been a little more shy.
Earlier this week it was claimed that the show’s infamous waterfall shower is actually a man-made creation and not a natural part of the jungle.
A show insider told The Sun that the waterfall was created specifically for the show and has been fake for it’s entire 14 year run, adding that no one pretended otherwise.
Back in 2006, Lauren Booth, sister of Cherie Blair, had also told the Daily Mail that not everything in the jungle camp was authentic.
"Take the rocks around the edge of the encampment – they seemed to be hollow and made of papier mache,” Lauren claimed.
“I also realised that the waterfall, like the pool beneath it was not part of the jungle at all, but a man-made creation.
“Unless, of course, real rain forest waterfalls get turned off between three and six every afternoon.”
