Premature end of “I’m a star, get me out of here!”?
Actually, everything was already prepared for the jungle camp in 2022: In the South African jungle, instead of in Australia, the rotten suspension bridges were already dangling, the disgusting Dixi toilet was in place, and the camp was ready to welcome various German celebrities there at the beginning of next year.
But now this: Because of the newly emerging coronavirus variant B.1.1.529, Germany will declare South Africa a virus variant area. The regulation will come into force on Saturday night, said Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn (41, CDU) on Friday morning. Airlines are therefore only allowed to carry German citizens to Germany.
Ursula von der Leyen wrote on Twitter (63): “The EU Commission will, in close coordination with the member states, propose to pull the emergency brake in order to stop air traffic from the region of southern Africa due to the variant of problem B.1.1.529 to stop.”
What does this mean for the jungle camp 2022? When asked by BILD, a spokesman said: “The jungle camp will continue to be planned with South Africa, but of course under observation of current developments.” According to BILD information, the preparations are continuing as normal, and there are still no cancellations.
The British jungle camp takes place
The British have planned with wise foresight: Since trips to Australia are still not plannable due to the ongoing pandemic, “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here” will take place in a creepy castle in Wales in 2021, just like last year instead of.
