If bugs escape I’m a Celebrity ‘they could cause severe problems’, says Chris Packham
Springwatch presenter adds to warnings of threat to Welsh countryside if non-native species get out
Parts of the Welsh countryside could become permanently damaged if creatures used in I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! escape, conservationists have warned, amid growing calls to ban the use of live animals on the show.
North Wales police said it had advised the ITV show on “set management and biosecurity” following fears cockroaches, whip scorpions, mealworms and crayfish used in bushtucker trials might have escaped, after concerns were first raised by TV presenter and naturalist Iolo Williams.
