The current contract with the national park ends in two years' time and ITV chiefs are discussing shifting the TV location to a beach setting, with more critters and creatures, the Daily Mirror reports.

Government chiefs are keen to shift the show to the island and agent general Bill Muirhead reportedly wrote in a letter to network boss Kevin Lygo: "With a third of the island covered by national parks, Kangaroo Island is teeming with creatures not found anywhere else, most of which we're more than happy for people to eat on TV."

He continued: "Looking forward to 2020, could it be time for a change? I ask you to consider Kangaroo Island, a place pulsating with all the wonder and weirdness Australia has to offer, an island with a name that seems straight out of a story of buccaneers and bushrangers."

According to Tourism Australia, Kangaroo Island is where you can see "native wildlife in the wild in an ecological haven".

It says: "Kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, penguins, echidnas and bird life all call this island home" and there's plenty of fresh produce "from Ligurian honey to free range chickens and eggs".
