ITV confirms Gwrych Castle in North Wales as the location for the upcoming new series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

ITV has confirmed recent media reports that Gwrych Castle in North Wales has been chosen as the location for this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the show has been forced to relocate from Australia to the UK this year for an "adapted" series that will see celebrity contestants vying to become the first ever King or Queen of the Castle.

Gwrych Castle is situated on the north coast of Wales inside 250 acres of gardens and grounds, which are said to be haunted by a number of its former residents.

Richard Cowles, ITV's director of entertainment, 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."

The show will begin a three-week run on ITV in mid-November.
