The upcoming series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will be filmed in North Wales.

ITV have confirmed the stars will be staying at Gwrych Castle in Abergele, which overlooks the Irish Sea.

Ant and Dec will host the adapated version of the reality programme, which will see one famous contestant being crowned king or queen of the castle, rather than the jungle.

Dr Mark Baker, Chair of the Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust said he was “absolutely delighted” that ITV had chosen the historic building as a location.

“I’m A Celebrity being here will really help support Gwrych Castle and its ongoing restoration as well as giving the region a much-needed economic boost,” he said.

Lord Elis-Thomas, The Welsh Government Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism said: “We’re extremely pleased to welcome such a large production to Wales, offering a chance to showcase a spectacular part of our country to significant audiences across the UK.”

I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here is one of ITV’s most popular shows and sees famous contestants face tough trials and challenges to win food and treats for their camp.

It has been broadcast on ITV since 2002, when Tony Blackburn was crowned the first King of the Jungle.

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

That made it the UK’s most popular reality show, with more viewers than the top-rated episodes of Strictly Come Dancing, Britain’s Got Talent and The Great British Bake Off last year.

The series was won by former EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa.
