I’m A Celebrity 2020 isn’t just losing Australia this year, it is also losing its medic Bob.
Medic Bob, real name Robert McCarron, 70, reportedly won’t be on this year’s series, which is set in Wales.
And it is yet again all thanks to COVID-19.
Travel restrictions mean Aussie Bob won’t be able to film on our British shores this year.
Why isn’t Medic Bob on this year’s I’m A Celebrity?
A source told The Sun that ITV is sad they can’t include him, but it just isn’t possible this time around.
They said: “Medic Bob is one of the pillars of I’m A Celebrity but unfortunately it wasn’t going to be a possibility to have him on board this year.
“Bob is based in Australia and with the changing restrictions there and in the UK, it became evident he wasn’t going to be able to feature.
“Of course this is completely temporary and Bob will return once I’m A Celebrity is back in Australia.”
A rep for I’m A Celebrity said: “With the show being in Wales this year we’re using a local medic team.”
What is he known for on the show?
They added that Ant and Dec will reference Bob’s absence, as well as introduce a new British medic to the team.
Bob became well known on the show for his fast-acting medic duties.
He famously rushed to help contestant Gillian McKeith when she fainted.
Of course, losing Bob is just one of the many huge changes taking place this year.
Swapping the Aussie jungle for a ‘haunted’ Welsh castle in 2020, this series will certainly be very different.
