Reports indicate that ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’ is returning to Wales in 2021 after plans to film in Australia were cancelled at the last minute.
In a move that proved too challenging to coordinate, the show will be held in Gwrych Castle, Abergele for a second year in a row.
Despite the production team’s efforts to secure a move back to Australia after switching up during the pandemic, celebrities are currently staying in Britain.
Despite the ongoing Covid travel restrictions, the logistics of getting the entire production team plus celebrities, presenters, and their families to the other side of the world have just been too difficult this year. ‘The show will be in Wales again and it will be brilliant, just like last year.
There is a lot of humour involved in making I’m a Celebrity from a spooky castle at a dark, damp time of year on the Welsh coast. It will be a hoot,’ the insider added, to The Mirror.
It comes as Australia continues to show caution in reopening its borders. The country’s treasurer Josh Frydenberg previously predicted in the budget that travel restrictions will be in place until at least midway through next year.
The budget made clear that ‘international travel is expected to remain low through to mid-2022, after which a gradual recovery in tourism is assumed to occur’. Scott Morrison, Australia’s Prime Minister, has previously stated that his country’s borders should remain closed indefinitely.
I’m A Celebrity presenters Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly previously revealed conversations surrounding the 2021 series of I’m A Celebrity were still ‘up in the air’ – and said they wouldn’t mind at all returning to Wales again this year.
