A well-known “I’m A Celeb” attraction has halted its ‘King’ and “Queen titles to show a sign of respect in the wake of the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
The Queen died peacefully at her residence in Balmoral on the 8th of September, which triggered a period of national mourning set to continue through the day of the Queen’s funeral on the 19th of September.
In the past, various activities and services were shut down or changed to reflect the dark character of the current situation.
The list includes the I’m A Celebrity Jungle Challenge at Quayside MediaCityUK in Salford, Greater Manchester, an attraction based on the famous ITV program.
“This brand new, action-packed adventure will test any campmate’s nerve and stamina to the test!” the website declares.
“Race against one another, collecting stars from an array of mental and physical obstacles in an incredible jungle setting that includes Main Camp, The Throne, and the Winner’s Bridge!”
Participants compete in many challenges inspired by the challenges featured in the show and a chance to be named “King or Queen of the Jungle. The winner receives a crown of flowers from wearing on a wooden throne.
Like the stars in the live show, the actors are allowed to take winning walks across the “winner’s bridge” and have their best moments captured on digital photographs in the show. LADbible confirmed the attraction that employees had been told not to refer to winners as’Queen’ or ‘King’ to avoid an act of respect.
Instead, they opt to use the name “Champion of the jungle” to remove all references to royalty temporarily.
It has announced it will close at the Queen’s funeral concerning the late Queen and mourners.
The website’s message says: “I’m A Celebrity… Jungle Challenge joins millions of people around the globe in mourning the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
“Continuum Attractions is honored to welcome Her Majesty’s visit to many of our attractions throughout her seventy-year reign.
“Following the passing of Her Majesty the Queen in a gesture of respect for her, our website will be shut on the 19th of September on the day of the state’s funeral.”
