I’m A Celebrity bosses ‘install bulletproof detection cameras’ after breach

Following a security breach, ITV bosses have reportedly tightened up measures at Gwrych Castle, currently home to I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.

The imposing security system, named The Amardillo, is often used by police as it sounds when an intruder is detected and captures any attempted theft on video.

The scary-looking Armadillo, which resembles Doctor Who's Tardis on legs, consists of 4ft bulletproof intrusion detection cameras, and they have been dotted around the production.

Producers are said to be nervous after a fan inadvertently wandered on to the set recently. Bosses are now worried that YouTube pranksters, criminals or the general public could trespass.

Viewer Emma Louise, 39, was collecting her caravan near Abergele's Gwrych Castle with her partner Andrew, 36, when they decided to see if they could sneak onto the set.

The couple said they managed to drive past the first security checkpoint without showing any ID or passes before finding themselves on the path towards the set.

They then said they drove through five more check points before reaching a dead-end and had a walk around the site on Sunday.

Emma, a mother of two from Liverpool said: 'We have a caravan in Wales and we were in the area and just wanted to see if we could take a peep. My boyfriend kept driving and we made it through the first security check no problem…

A source told The Sun: "The Amardillo is the leading piece of security kit available in the UK. It looks like something out of Doctor Who, but if you came face to face with it you'd c**p your pants.
