Construction Workers Have Been Spotted On Rumoured New 'I'm A Celeb' Location

Construction Workers Have Been Spotted On Rumoured New 'I'm A Celeb' Location

Construction workers have been pictured at Gwrych Castle in North Wales as speculation continues to mount that it could be the next I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! location.

It was revealed last week that, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the ITV series would this year be based in a ruined UK castle, instead of the Australian jungle.

And recent reports have tipped the Welsh castle, in Conwy, as the chosen grounds - although this has not yet been confirmed by the channel.

Despite the fact it's not yet official, it certainly looked as if they were preparing for something at Gwrych Castle this week.

Construction workers have pictured at the 200 year old, 25-acre historical site, near the town of Abergele, which the Daily Mail report ITV obtained for £1,000,000.

People in high-vis jackets could be seen getting to work on the Grade I listed building, while a crane was also on site lifting what looked like objects for a set into different parts of the premises.

A sign saying 'Danger: Keep Out' was also hung up against the entry way to the building - which is believed to be haunted, according to local legends.

It comes just days after Richard Cowles, Director of Entertainment at ITV Studios, explained the show would be making a rather drastic change this year, to ensure it aired despite coronavirus travel restrictions.

He said: "We pulled out all the stops to try and make the series happen in Australia.

"Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and despite us looking at many different contingencies, it became apparent that it just wasn't possible for us to travel and make the show there.

"However, we are all really excited about a UK version of I'm A Celebrity."

Of course, there will still be critters and creepy crawleys galore, but the series will also reportedly embrace its new medieval theme, with tasks such as jousting, trips to creepy dungeons and even fake gallows.

"While it will certainly be different producing the show from the UK, the same tone and feel will remain," Cowles said.

"Our celebrities will probably have to swap shorts for thermals but they can still look forward to a basic diet of rice and beans and plenty of thrills and surprises along the way".

We're just relieved the show is going ahead and can't wait to see which celebs will be taking part...

Tyla has contacted ITV for comment on the rumoured location.
