It's that time of year again when we spend every night tuning in to watch our favourite celebs being tortured on ITV.

I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! is back, and more controversial than ever this year.

The latest group of campmates are Fred Sirieix, Nella Rose, Josie Gibson, Nick Pickard, Danielle Harold, Sam Thompson, Jamie Lynn Spears, Nigel Farage, Marvin Humes and Grace Dent.

But there's been one major controversy that has left I'm A Celebrity fans feeling absolutely scandalised.

And no, we're not talking about Farage.

Now, we all know that one of the main draws of the TV show is watching some of the biggest names in entertainment suffer.

Be that eating bugs or being drenched in gunge, it's always enjoyable to see a celebrity squirm.

But although we want to see our campmates uncomfortable, it's important that they're out of any real danger.

With thunderstorms and heavy rain set to batter the camp in the coming week, that means the celebrity camp does require some level of protection.

And it's now been reported that the I'm A Celeb camp isn't actually the 'jungle' at all.

In fact, it's a set within the rainforest with a secret roof to allow the celebrities to shelter from the rain.

Also it's not technically a jungle, with the terrain actually being described as a 'lowland subtropical rainforest’ - but this does feel like splitting hairs.

The canopy is important not just to keep our campmates dry, but also to stop recording equipment from getting damp.

Big fans of the show may also have noticed this artificial roof getting lowered to deliver the celebs their winnings from the Bushtucker Trials.

However, an insider told MailOnline: "A lot of the camp is not under shelter - it’s not like the roof at Wimbledon.”

Previous campmate Alison Hammond also confirmed the presence of some sort of canopy over the I'm A Celeb camp.

She spoke on the Saving Grace podcast about her experience of the show, explaining that you can't sunbathe.

“There's trees everywhere and also they've got this canopy for lighting.

“You feel like you're on a camping film set but you can't see the cameras."

Chris Moyles also spoke about a canopy, adding that it doesn't always keep them protected from the elements.

He said: "They have a little canopy that just covers the camp area.

"Just from one bed to the phone box and out like that, but if the rain comes in sideways and you're in the hammock you're screwed."

Tyla has contacted ITV for comment.

Watch I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! daily at 9pm on ITV1 & ITVX.
