WHO WILL RULE THE CASTLE?
PRODUCERS have confirmed that this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will be filmed in a British castle.
For the first time in 19 years, the hit ITV reality show will not be filmed in a camp in the Australian jungle. That means a celeb won’t be named King or Queen of the Jungle. Instead, the 20th series will see our celebs battling it out to be King or Queen of a British castle.
We don’t know the exact location or name of the castle yet (although it is rumoured to be Conwy’s Gwrych Castle, a supposedly haunted Welsh castle), but ITV has said: “The show will be broadcast live every night from a ruined castle in the countryside.”
The coronavirus pandemic meant that ITV producers were unable to film this year’s series in
Australia. Richard Cowles, Director of Entertainment at ITV Studios, said: “We pulled out all the stops to try and make the series happen in Australia. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic… it became apparent that it just wasn’t possible for us to travel and make the show there.”
Ant and Dec are set to return to their presenting duties on the UK-based version of the show, which will see this year’s celebrities undertake gruelling trials and fun-filled challenges to win food and treats.
There’s no word yet as to when I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is expected to be on TV.
