I’m A Celeb Confirms Start Date, As It Swaps The Australian Jungle For Welsh Castle

It's all systems go for the ITV show, which is set to return later this month.


Well, it looks like November is bringing some good news, which we all need. I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here has confirmed it’s returning, with a November 15 start date.

Earlier this year there were fears the show would be cancelled with Coronavirus and travel restrictions meaning the show couldn’t film in Australia this year, swapping the jungle for the UK for the first time; filming at a castle in Wales.

But, with the UK weather and change of location, building a new set was no mean feat, with the castle flooding last month and causing crew to stay working around the clock to fix the issue and damages before the November premiere.

At the time, The Sun reported that workers called the set a “soggy headache“, with unexpected delays setting them back on the building.

But now, it looks like the place is receiving its final touches, and the derelict 200-year-old Gwrych Castle in Abergele, North Wales, is getting the I’m A Celeb makeover complete with a central camp fire area, task area and outside toilets.

In terms of length, the show is expected to run for three weeks as usual, with Ant and Dec reprising their presenting roles.

In terms of celebs to expect? Well, brother of Love Island’s Curtis Pritchard and Strictly star, AJ Pritchard is one of the big names tipped, as is Mo Farah, and TV presenter Vernon Kay.

We’re sure all will be revealed soon and we’re so ready.
