Some of the props featuring in the I’m a Celebrity…Get me out of Here! display at the Tweed Regional Museum

In 2018 the TV show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! celebrates 16 years of filming in the Tweed Shire. The Tweed Regional Museum’s latest ‘Collector’s Cabinet’ display takes a look behind the scenes of the production.

While most people are interested in the famous celebrities who appear on the show, the stories of the crew behind the scenes are also fascinating.

Up to 700 people work internationally to produce this live reality television show, with the film crew operating out of an extensive rainforest camp.

The battle of working in difficult terrain, the feats of engineering, and logistical challenges needed to produce the show watched by up to 12 million viewers in the UK alone is stunning.

More than 120 cameras roll 24 hours a day, capturing footage from camps on the ground as well as on some of the half- kilometre of suspension bridges.

The exhibition includes props from the show alongside stories from the crew. Museum staff have worked hand in hand with the production’s community liaison team to put it together.

One of the challenges most feared by celebrities – the notorious ‘Hell Hole’ into which celebrities put their hand, braving whatever they find inside – is also featured in the exhibition.

The I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! exhibition runs from August 21 until March 2019 at the Tweed Regional Museum in Murwillumbah.
