Hot, humid conditions and no food

They’ve now been in the jungle for two weeks.

But already the I’m A Celeb stars have lost an incredible amount of weight between them so far.

Yes, a combination of humid conditions and a limited food supply is evidently taking its toll.

Indeed, reports that the 11 campmates have lost around 6st (38kg) in total since entering the jungle on November 19.

Boxer Amir Khan, actor Jamie Lomas , and politician Stanley Johnson are believed to have shed the most so far, with reality TV’s Georgia Toffolo also looking particularly slim.

Recently, Jamie commented: “I’ve lost so much weight in here, which isn’t a bad thing. But the hunger, it really gets to you.”

On average, the contestants are told to prepare to lose around 11lbs (5kg). Although newsreader Michael Buerk lost more than 17lbs (7.7kg) in 2014, and TV presenter Christopher Biggins lost 2st (12.7kg) in 2007.
