Survival Of The Fittest bosses have ramped up security over the possible danger that animals such as lions could come in close proximity to the lodge that the contestants are currently staying in.

Concerns were raised when a lion attacked a poacher in the same region to where the new reality TV show is filmed.

"This is a bit startling and the danger of living next to these beautiful but deadly animals has now really hit home," an insider revealed.

“Security on set are sure to be doubly wary after reports of the fatal incident," they added to the Daily Star.

Commenting on the risk of an attack from lions, expert Maheshwor Dhakal warned: "Human blood has more salt than animal blood. Once wild animals get the taste of salty blood they do not like other animals like deer.”

But this isn't the first time that the contestants, who are based in the South African savannah, have been put at risk as a result of their surroundings and its residents.
