I’m A Celebrity 2021 ‘Could Remain In The UK’ After Success Of Gwrych Castle

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here could remain in the UK after the recent series of the TV show has proven very popular with fans.

The show's initial episode launched with a record-breaking 12 million viewers as eagle-eyed fans tuned in to see just how a Welsh version of the show would pan out.

And it seems as though fans have not been disappointed.

Usually set in the outback of Australia, the show pits celebrity contestants against creepy crawlies and disgusting meals and drinks as they take on challenges in order to win stars (which equate to meals) for their fellow celebrities back in camp.

This year saw celebs such as Corrie's Liz, aka actress Beverley Callard, and journalist Victoria Derbyshire go up against actor Shane Richie and Olympic gold medallist Sir Mo Farah in the Welsh castle.

Last night we learned that Giovanna Fletcher, Jordan North and Vernon Kay were all in the running to win the coveted title, with the result due tonight.

Ahead of tonight's final, showrunner Richard Cowles said that the show could remain in its new location, north Wales's Gwrych Castle, for at least another year.

Speaking to Broadcast Now, Cowles said: "Australia has been I'm A Celebrity's natural home and the Welsh version was born out of necessity rather than choice, but we've learned a lot and so maybe there is a UK incarnation of the show.

"We will look at what being in Wales means for the format going forward. Is it something we would want to do again, or do we want to return to Australia?"

Cowles added: "It has been a different [type of show] because the environment is different.

"But it is absolutely as good as ever in terms of what audiences see on screen."

Viewers will find out who will be crowned King or Queen of the castle tonight at 9pm on ITV. The winner will be revealed live from the castle.
