'I'm a Celebrity' super-shower to 'blow the girls' bikinis off'

'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' bosses have installed a "power shower" to blast off bikinis.

Producers of the ITV show are keen to spice things up in the jungle by installing a water system, which will allow them to turn up the water pressure when they choose and watch as the contestant lose their swimwear, according to the installation crew.

Michael Zuschke, one of the crew members who helped set up the camp shower, admits the water pressure can be increased to 150 litres of water a minute.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he explained: "The producers told me, 'We want enough water to blow the girls' bikinis off'.

"They want a big enough blast to wash them away. I said 'Alrightie. I can do that'.

"That's a big volume of water coming out if they need it.

It's about five times what you would get under a shower. "Once that comes pouring out it will be like a wind to a sail. Watch it go."

Meanwhile, the Gold Coast in Australia - where the programme is filmed - was hit with bush fires and a tropical storm yesterday, but bosses insist they are "monitoring" the weather conditions ahead of the show.
