I'M A CELEBRITY 2021: WEEK 1 SCHEDULE CONFIRMED
The show will return to the historic Gwrych Castle, Abergele in North Wales this November on ITV and ITV Hub.
The series will be hosted by Ant & Dec and broadcast live every night from the ruined castle, as a brand new cast of celebrities adjust to their new surroundings.
It has now been revealed that the series will return on Sunday 21st November on ITV, and is expected to continue for the usual three weeks.
Sunday 21st, 9pm-10:40pm

Thursday 25th, 9pm-10:15pm

Hot on the heels of Giovanna Fletcher being crowned Queen of the Castle in 2020, viewers will once again see the celebrities undertake gruelling trials and action packed challenges to win food and treats, in the lead up to one of them emerging victorious.
The first show of the 2020 series, which ran on Sunday 15 November at 9pm, consolidated to an audience of 13.8m TV viewers [52% audience share] over the first seven days of its availability.
With 0.5m viewers watching via non-TV devices, the total reached 14.3m viewers. It was also the most popular show of 2020 for young viewers with an average of 2.8m and two thirds [66 per cent] of 16-34s watching across the series, and overall it became the second most watched series of I'm A Celebrity, which has been on air since 2002.
Richard Cowles, Director of Unscripted at Lifted Entertainment said: “With the continued uncertainty around covid and international travel we have taken the decision not to return to our home in Australia for the 2021 series. We’re excited to return to Gwrych Castle. The last series was a huge success and we were made to feel so welcome by everyone locally and can’t wait to see everyone again.”
I'm A Celebrity returns Sunday 21st November at 9pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
