I’m A Celebrity Crew Rush To Fix Castle Flooding Ahead Of Show Premiere Next Month
The UK set has been described as a 'soggy headache' compared to the Australian jungle.
The crew behind I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here are apparently working around the clock in order to have the set ready to rock for the show’s premiere in November.
Due to the pandemic this year, the ITV reality show had to relocate their filming from Australia to the UK in order to keep things going and provide entertainment for fans.
However, creating a set in North Wales has proved to be a lot more challenging as the old castle which has been transformed into the new location is causing a lot of problems.
Revealing to The Sun that set designers and production are working non-stop, the castle apparently flooded at the weekend, causing another setback as the ancient structure doesn’t have proper drainage for bad weather.
“Because of the dreadful weather, they spent much of the weekend trying to remove standing water from areas of the building.
“They’re now trying to work out a way to make sure that, if there’s bad weather when the show airs in November, it doesn’t affect filming. The jungle set was fine when it rained as there was natural drainage and streams,” explained an insider.
Continuing, they added that the current location is a “soggy headache” and one which they hope makes a successful turnaround.
With filming set to begin in a couple of weeks and duo Ant and Dec set to reprise their roles as presenters, here’s hoping the show can hit the ground running.
ITV has also noted that they’ve continued to abide by government guidelines and have taken all necessary protocol in the past couple of months.
