The UK's "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!" are filming in Australia

Australian weather has hit headlines across the UK as headlines express fears for the contestants of "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!"

The UK Media is reporting producers of the show are holding 'crisis' talks as temperatures are set to rise above 40 degrees celsius in Queensland.

This Weather is Dangerous and Can KillThe Sun

The Mirror headline reads "I'm A Celebrity holds crisis talks as 'fatal' heatwave set to sweep Australia and older stars at risk," reporting particular concern for the older celebrities such as 69-year-old Larry Lamb.

"Producers are on extra high alert because of the heat wave," a source told the Mirror. ""They are making sure there is plenty of water and ways to keep the camp-mates cool."

The Sun is reporting on the 'fatal' heatwave set to sweep Australia, with the headline "This Weather is Dangerous and Can Kill".

"Contestants are being told to take extra care to make sure they are drinking enough water and not doing anything too active," a source told the tabloid newspaper. "All the contestants need to keep hydrated and be reapplying sun cream regularly. This weather is dangerous and can kill. Even Aussies won't be out in the midday sun.''

Eight contestants are left on the show which is being filmed at Springbrook National Park. The line-up aren't Aussie household names, but include "Gogglebox" star Scarlett Moffatt, stand up comic Joel Commett and Olympic hockey player Sam Quek.

The Bureau of Meteorology has predicated a heatwave that is likely to be unpleasant not only for the UK Celebs. It's going to be scortching hot in large parts of New South Wales and southern Queensland.

However -- despite UK reports that the weather will be "fatal" -- with adequate preparation you can stay safe during the heat wave. Queensland Health advises staying hydrated, using sun protection and staying in-doors.
