Gwrych Castle is hosting I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! for a second time following a “highly successful run” in 2020 which saw Giovanna Fletcher crowned the winner.
The 200-year-old ruined castle, which is based in the sea-side town of Abergele in the county of Conwy, was confirmed as the 2021 location by ITV bosses earlier this month.
And since then fans of the long-standing competition, which launched in Australia in 2002, have been desperate to find out who is in this year’s line-up.
The rumour mill is already in overdrive, with many celebrities keen to do this year’s show. You can read the rumoured line-up in full here.

The star has a pretty busy schedule and has been part of a number of high-profile storylines on the soap recently with her character Mandy Dingle.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Lisa, 45, said: “I love playing Mandy so much, that’s why I keep turning down other good roles.
“They offer me I’m A Celebrity every year and every year I say ‘no’.
“It’s not because of all the creepy crawlies or the challenges, I actually wouldn’t mind those.
“I would just be so bored in there. I have so much energy from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to sleep.
“Being sat in camp all day would send me crazy. I would need to be stimulated all the time.”

It comes after former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan slammed Ant and Dec’s offer of “humiliating” himself on the show after Ant pointed out he was “looking for a job”.
While television personality Denise Van Outen said she wouldn’t sign up for I’m A Celebrity while it’s in Wales. You can read more on this here.
