ITV bosses confirm I’m A Celebrity will not be based in Wales again this year

Ant and Dec had hinted that I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! would be returning to Australia this year and now it has been confirmed by ITV bosses.

The pandemic had forced the show to be filmed in Wales for the past two years, but with restrictions lifting around the world it is set to return to the jungle.

Rosemary Newell, director of content, said the show is expecting to be back in its original home, after two years being held at Gwrych Castle, near Abergele.

The Mirror reported that she has said: “We expect a celebrity to return in Australia in November, when it will generate audience over 11 million.”

Ant and Dec have made no secret of the fact they’d love for the show to return to its native home – but they quipped it wasn’t because they had anything against Wales.

In an appearance on The One Show earlier this year, Ant said: “Well, the plan is the jungle, so if all things…” before Dec Donnelly interrupted to say: “Nothing against Wales!”

Ant then added: “We love Wales but you know, Australia is its home and we’d like to get back there if we can,” with Dec sharing: “That’s what we’re hoping, touch wood.”
