But as the series approaches, fans find themselves asking the same question – where in Australia is the jungle camp?

The hit ITV series is filmed in Springbrook National Park, in New South Wales.

Situated on the Gold Coast, the area is popular with tourists due to its stunning national parks.

After leaving the camp, celebrities are then treated to stay at the plush Palazzo Versace on Queensland’s SeaWorld Drive – also known as the Sunset Boulevard of the Gold Coast.

Though the show has been filming at Springbrook for over a decade, it looks as though the Australian jungle is set for a £1million revamp.

Just recently, National Parks Minister Steven Miles revealed plans for a $1.12million makeover to the popular tourist destination.

However, the work – which will see improvements to the carpark, picnic areas as well as the addition of a wedding venue – won’t begin until February 2018, just in time for the Commonwealth Games.

Talking to Gold Coast Bulletin, Miles said: “The way people are using our National Parks is changing, decades ago it was all about a bushwalk and maybe a picnic.

“Now people are seeing them as eco-tourism destinations and a place to host events and as those demands change we need to invest to ensure those facilities are there.”

I’m A Celebrity returns to ITV on Sunday November 19.
