After months of speculation ITV has officially confirmed the 2021 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will once again take place at Gwrcyh Castle in Wales.
The broadcaster announced that due to the “continued uncertainty” around Covid-19 and international travel the show would be returning to Abergele once again.
Fronted by Ant and Dec and usually located in the Australian jungle, last year’s run in Wales proved “highly successful”, becoming the second most-watched series of I’m A Celebrity since it launched in 2002.

And following the announcement bosses at Gwrych Castle have been inundated with “hundreds” of messages.
They said: “It’s been an exciting couple of days for Gwrych Castle, Abergele & North Wales!
“We’ve received hundreds of messages since the announcement was made on Monday, so thank you all for your continued support.”

The castle then reminded people they can still visit by pre-booking on the official website.
Tickets cost £5 for an adult, £2.50 for children and are free for those under three.
Earlier this year the I’m A Celebrity castle partially reopened and revealed more would be available to the public soon after ITV “sped up repairs by two years”.
Currently, outdoor areas include the privy and Kiosk Cledwyn’s Ye Olde Shoppe, as well as the famous red telephone box which can be seen during a tour around the campmates’ courtyard and gardens.
Chair of the Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust, Dr Mark Baker, said of the show returning to Wales: “I’m absolutely delighted that I’m A Celebrity has chosen Gwrych Castle to be its UK location for the 2021 series.
“Gwrych Castle is a beautiful grade I listed historic house and a must-see destination for tourists visiting Wales. I’m A Celebrity being here will really help support its ongoing restoration as well as giving the region a much-needed economic boost.
“We are all very excited to be working with the team again.”
