The ITV hit series “I’m A Celebrity .. Get Me Out of Here” could be making a dramatic move to North Wales according to the national press.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the ITV show is set to remain in the UK this year and rumours have started to circulate after a press release by ITV says that this years “I’m A Celeb” will take place at a “ruined castle in the countryside” . No exact location has been given yet but ITV bosses have said;
“Viewers will see the celebrities undertake gruelling trials and fun-filled challenges to win food and treats in the lead up to one of them being crowned, for the first time ever, King or Queen of the Castle.”
The 200 year old castle in Abergele has been toted as a back drop it this years series by various national UK newspapers, one paper suggested it was chosen due to it being haunted by a “floating woman in white” and the show this year will be medieval themed and rumours of a £1 million take over of the venue for 6 weeks.
ITV have also confirmed that Ant & Dec will be hosting this years show and Director of Entertainment at ITV Studios, Richard Clowes said:
“We pulled out all the stops to try and make the series happen in Australia. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and despite us looking at many different contingencies, it became apparent that it just wasn’t possible for us to travel and make the show there. However, we are all really excited about a UK version of I’m A Celebrity. While it will certainly be different producing the show from the UK, the same tone and feel will remain.
“Our celebrities will probably have to swap shorts for thermals but they can still look forward to a basic diet of rice and beans and plenty of thrills and surprises along the way”.
