I’m a backpacker... Get me in here!

Gapyear.com team up with Gold Coast Tourism to run amazing competition

Saturday night will see thousands of UK-based backpackers venturing deep into the Australian Jungle as they settle down for the climax of this year’s 'I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' And - thanks to gapyear.com - a lucky few could be heading down under for real in 2012.

Season 11 of ITV’s blockbuster has turned out to be one of the biggest yet with athletics veteran Fatima Whitbread surviving an extremely over-inquisitive cockroach, ex-jockey Willie Carson bombing the hot tub and the return of jungle legend Peter Andre.

The show is based in the subtropical rainforest of the east coast state Queensland.

Celebrities on their way into and out of the camp stay at the fabulous Palazzo Versace hotel in nearby Main Beach.

Gapyear.com is teaming up with Gold Coast Tourism to offer trips of a lifetime including all flights and a stay at the Palazzo Versace. Winners will face their own bush tucker trials and whoever triumphs will become the Gap Year King or Queen of the Jungle and will walk away with a further Grand Prize.

“This has got to be the best competition we’ve ever run,” said gapyear.com commercial director Sue Rudland. “The Gold Coast guys are a great bunch. The winners will have a fantastic time.”
