I’m A Celebrity is back and in Wales

Sir Mo Farah, Shane Richie and Victoria Derbyshire are among the stars heading to a Welsh castle to take part in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The pandemic means they aren’t going to the Australian jungle as usual – this year’s series has been relocated to the ruined Gwrych Castle in Conwy.

They will be joined by actress Beverley Callard, presenter Vernon Kay and former Strictly dancer AJ Pritchard.

The series will begin on ITV next Sunday, 15 November.

EastEnders actress Jessica Plummer, BBC Radio 1 DJ Jordan North, Paralympic champion Hollie Arnold, and author and podcaster Giovanna Fletcher will also be hoping to be crowned the first king or queen of the castle.

While they won’t face the usual bush tucker trials, ITV has promised that the contestants can still look forward to “a basic diet of rice and beans and plenty of thrills and surprises”.

Preparations at the 19th Century castle have gone ahead despite the “firewall” lockdown in Wales, which ended on Monday.

The 2019 launch show was ITV’s most-watched programme of the year, seen by more than 13 million people.
