I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here bosses have reportedly been forced to tighten their security, after New South Wales police launched a massive manhunt.
It has been claimed that the staff watching the celebrities have been extra vigilant after a man was found dead in at Jack Evans Boat Harbour Park in Tweeds Head on Friday.
While it’s been reported that the site where the body was found was 30 minutes from Murwillumbah – where I’m A Celebrity is filmed – it is actually thought that the park is an hour away.

A source told The Sun: ‘The celebs are being watched 24 hours a day, seven days a week by a team of staff and our security measures are incredibly tight.
‘So there is zero chance of anyone sneaking into camp. But of course it is very unsettling to know that there is someone out there, running from the police, who has committed such a horrible crime.’
An ITV representative declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.

It was reported on Friday that New South Wales police launched the manhunt after a couple found a man dead in a sleeping bag at around 11am local time.
The homicide squad have launched a crime scene, and Detective Chief Inspector Brendon Cullen revealed that the man was found with ‘physical wounds.’
He told ABC: ‘The movements and the history of the victim is something that we are in the early stages of establishing.
‘We are very keen to speak to any person that was in Jack Evans Boat Harbour yesterday evening and this morning who might have seen something or know anything about this.
‘We do want to establish where this man is from and how he came to be in the state he is in now.’

This is not the first time that the camp has been thrown into doubt, after it was reported earlier this month that bushfires have broken out just 10 kilometres from where the show was being filmed.
I’m A Celebrity is being filmed on a disused banana plantation in dense forest near to Murwillumbah, a remote town in far-north eastern New South Wales, close to the Queensland border.
A source told The Mirror at the time: ‘We are in constant contact with the NSW fire brigade and are closely monitoring the situation.
‘We currently have no cause for concern. The health and safety of all our production crew and celebrities are of the utmost importance.’
No idea: The celebrities in the camp are completely cut off from the outside world, and would have no knowledge of any increased security
