I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! has braved its first hurdle since relocating from Australia to a wet and wintery North Wales.
This year's show has seen bosses creating back up plans in order to deal with the conditions they face this year, compared to the blistering heat they normally face on the Gold Coast.
Gwrych Castle in Abergele, North Wales, has been battered by winds up to 50mph and storm-like rain, with worse weather expected to arrive later in the week.
It's said that a canopy had been installed over the set before filming commenced but this was not sufficient enough.
Reports claim that bosses have lined up a second-place for celebrities to relocate to, should the gruesome weather get worse.
"We knew it could be wet but hadn’t really planned for anything like this.
"The crew don't even want to leave their cabins. It's completely bleak and we're having to step up our contingency plans," a source told The Sun.

They went on to say: "Now if things start to become too much to cope with, there is a place off-camera where they can temporarily move the celebrities if filming just becomes impossible.
"The first week is forecast to be absolutely bleak so it wouldn't be surprising if they need to put some of these plans in place."
It's said that this year's infamous Bushtucker Trials will take place outside, meaning that the campmates will be soaked through – despite being supplied with heavy-duty waterproof clothing.
Abergele often faces 18 days of rain each November, with some downpours exceeding 50cm.
Weather reports suggest that temperatures will reach a low of just six degrees in coming days – meaning the celebrities taking part will be exposed to all weathers.
This year, contestants will take part in Bushtucker Trials during the early hours of the morning, in order to maintain an aspect of mystery.
In order to keep campmates on their toes, exotic animals are still believed to be a key part in the infamous Bushtucker Trials, with speculation suggesting "ferret legging" may play a part, seeing animals trapped inside contestants trousers.
I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues on ITV at 9pm on Monday.
