Stars of this year's series revealed, including TV presenters Vernon Kay and Victoria Derbyshire.
Ant & Dec will host an adapted version of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! live every night on ITV from the castle. As on the regular series, viewers will see the celebrities undertake gruelling trials and fun-filled challenges to win food and treats in the lead up to one of them being crowned, for the first time ever, King or Queen of the Castle.
The ten celebrities heading into the Castle for the new series are:
TV Presenter – Vernon Kay Broadcaster & Journalist– Victoria Derbyshire Star of Stage & Screen – Shane Richie Paralympic Gold Medallist – Hollie Arnold MBE Radio 1 DJ – Jordan North Corrie Icon – Beverley Callard Ballroom Dancer – AJ Pritchard Author & Podcaster – Giovanna Fletcher Olympic Legend – Sir Mo Farah CBE Soap Star – Jessica Plummer
The 20th series of I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! will be filmed at the historic Gwrych Castle, Abergele in North Wales.
Richard Cowles, Director of Entertainment at ITV Studios said: “The Australian jungle is such an integral part of the show it was a big challenge to find a UK location where we could continue to deliver what viewers love about I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! But Gwrych will definitely do that; the Castle sits in an amazing and atmospheric setting on a hillside overlooking the Irish Sea. While there will be plenty of changes required as we move from New South Wales in Australia to North Wales in the UK, we are really excited to see how we can adapt the format and make the Castle our new home for a very special 20th series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! this Autumn.”
This year will see Vick Hope join the presenting team as the host of new spin-off series The Daily Drop on ITV Hub and ITV2. More information can be found here.
I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! begins Sunday 15th November at 9pm on ITV.
