The CampsEdit

For the first four days of the show, the group of celebrities were split between two camps: "Home", and "Away". The celebrities in each group were:

  • Home Camp: Brian, Dani, George, Joe, Martina
  • Away Camp: Carly, Esther, Nicola, Robert, Simon

Which group lived in which camp was decided by the first Bushtucker Trial. As Joe won, his group moved in to Home Camp, whilst Simon's group moved into Away Camp. The two camps competed in Bushtucker Trials, with the winning camp receiving better food.

Home was the better of the two camps, featuring a London Bus for the celebrities to sleep in. Contestants in Home camp received British food if they won head-to-head Bushtucker Trials. Meanwhile, the celebrities in Away Camp were forced to sleep on the jungle floor, and received Australian food if they won trials. There was also a jail in away camp for 'naughty' celebs.[5]

On 18 November 2008, the two camps merged. The celebrities in the Away Camp moved into the Home Camp. The merger was due to take place on the morning of 19 November 2008, however it was brought forward after a storm left the Away Camp flooded.

Bushtucker TrialsEdit

The contestants take part in daily trials to earn food.

     The public voted for who they wanted to face the trial
     The contestants decided who did which trial
     The trial was compulsory and neither the celebrities or public decided who took part

NotesEdit

Template:Note Due to Joe's win, his Team went to the best camp (Home Camp) as the prize
Template:Note It was a live trial for the first time this series. Also for the first time the other celebrities got to watch
Template:Note Esther was ruled out of this trial due to medical reasons
Template:Note Simon was ruled out due to an injury to his back received in the Bush Battle, Hog Roast
Template:Note The two bottom place celebrities in the vote-off went head-to-head in the trial. The loser would go home and the winner would return to camp and be immune from the next vote-off

Bush Battles Edit

Just like Series 7, some celebrities will be granted immunity from the first vote-off. The 5 winners of this prize will be decided by five 'bush battles' (one winner in each.) Each of the 12 celebrities will compete in one of four battles, each containing 3 campmates. The winners will automatically gain immunity while the second-placed contestants will compete for a final place in the fifth and final bout. In the end, there were six winners due to a problem in the second battle. This feature replaced the 'Celebrity Chests' for five episodes.
