UK LOCATION CONFIRMED FOR I'M A CELEBRITY
Earlier this month, ITV announced the next series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here would be broadcast from the UK.
It’s been confirmed that the series will be filmed at Gwrych Castle, Abergele in North Wales.
Dr Mark Baker, the Chair of the Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust, said he was “absolutely delighted” at the news: "Gwrych Castle is a beautiful grade I listed 19th county house and a must-see destination for tourists visiting Wales. I’m A Celebrity being here will really help support Gwrych Castle and its ongoing restoration as well as giving the region a much-needed economic boost."
Richard Cowles, the 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.”
I'm A Celebrity returns this November on ITV.
