Millions of pounds, thousands of hours of footage and hundreds of people are involved in I'm A Celebrity … Get me out of here! to make it one of the biggest shows on TV.
And with just a few hours before I start the Celebrity 2018, new hosts Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby will be waking up excitedly in the wee hours of the morning, ready to start the day in the jungle.
But like any major program, the amount of resources dumped is virtually impossible to understand.
From feeding the vast team to paying hundreds of thousands of pounds for their celebrity training, the show costs a small fortune every year to be produced.
Here are some of the facts and figures that help explain how the show has been organized over the years and sent back to the UK for you to watch.
10,500 : The "camp" is based on the Australian rainforest, which is 10,500 miles from Britain, two hours from Brisbane and just outside the small town of Murwillumbah.
- 2:00 : Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby have to get up – at the latest – to get to the place around two-thirty in the morning. They go to bed 6-8pm each night and the show starts at ITV at 7am in Australia.
- 500 : Crew number (UK and OZ mix) ranging from security, corridors, producers, catering and editors.
- 5 : Number of people allowed on any of the metal bridges at any time. If you are traveling in or out of the camp in a large group you must wait in the crow nest between the bridges for safety. There are four bridges in total getting into camp.
- 1 : Malcolm McLaren is the only member of the cast of celebrities who flew to Australia and stayed at the Versace Hotel before deciding he did not want to do the show and return home.
- 400 An enormous amount of cables is erected, including half a mile of suspended bridges, 400 meters of bridges, four kilometers of rope, five kilometers of steel cables and 60 tons of scaffolding.
- 14 : Number of editing suites working 24 hours a day to produce the ITV show.
- 2 : Satellites sending the program back to Britain ready to be broadcast.
- 160,000 A Bushtucker test this year will feature the highest number of bugs ever, with over 160,000.
- 18 : Medic Bob has worked in all series. He and Declan Donnelly are the only ones on the screen now to have done it.
- 3 : Number of pairs of briefs you are allowed. A source of much debate in the early years of the show.
- 6 : Number of bikinis / swimsuits that each camper can carry in the backpack
- 10 v 7 : The winners of each are: Series One, Tony Blackburn; second series, Phil Tufnell; series three, Kerry Katona; series four, Joe Pasquale; series five, Carol Thatcher; series six, Matt Willis; series seven, Christopher Biggins; series eight, Joe Swash; series nine, Gino D & # 39; Field; series 10, Stacey Solomon; Series 11, Dougie Poynter; the 12 series, Charlie Brooks, the 13 series Kian Egan, the 14 series Carl Foggy & # 39; Fogarty, the 15 series Vicky Pattison and the 16 series Scarlett Moffatt, series 17, were Georgia Toffolo. That makes 10 kings and 7 queens.
- In order to feed the vast crew, during the series the catering can pass through approximately 15kg of Bacon, 540 eggs, 7kg of muesli, 70kg of potatoes, 80kg of beef, 60kg of chicken, 50kg of pork, 20kg of fish, 3kg of ham, 2 kg of salami and 4 kg hamburgers. Beat up eating anus kangeroon!
