I'm A Celebrity struggling to sign up contestants?
ITV is reportedly struggling to sign up stars for the new series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! due to the change of location from Australia to Wales.

ITV is reportedly having difficulties convincing celebrities to sign up for the new series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The show has been forced to move from Australia's sunny Gold Coast to a ruined castle on the north coast of Wales for its next run this November due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While the show itself is quite the ordeal, contestants are normally put up in a five-star luxury hotel before and after their stint in the jungle, while their families are also given VIP treatment during the series.

According to The Mirror, the change of location is proving problematic in convincing stars to sign up, even though producers have a number of four-star Welsh resorts in mind to house the contestants and their entourages.

Among those said to be in line to appear this year are Vernon Kay, AJ Pritchard, Tamzin Outhwaite and Nigel Farage.
