BREAKING: I'm A Celeb Live Show Cancelled

Tonight's (26th November) instalment of I'm A Celebrity... will not be broadcasting live as the production crew prepares to face Storm Arwen.

But don't worry! The show must go on...

In a statement released this afternoon, ITV confirmed that every element of the show will be pre-recorded, with Ant and Dec's 'live' links being filmed before 9PM.

The Met Office has issued it's highest level of warning (red) as gusts between 80 - 90 miles per hour are due to hit England during the evening.

It explained the situation in a Tweet, urging people to stay inside when possible.

Storm Arwen is expected to hit Gwrych Castle in Abergele, Wales at 9PM. Annoyingly, when the show usually broadcasts live to the rest of the UK.

ITV have said the reason for using pre-records is down to "[concerns] the satellite link could be affected by the bad weather".

Despite this, the safety of cast and crew is number one priority to ITV and the I'm A Celeb production team. Each celebrity is "safe inside the castle and their safety and wellbeing is of utmost priority to us". They'll remain inside until the storm passes.

Every extreme weather scenario is prepared for by the cast and crew, so tonight will be no different.

In the full statement, ITV said: "Tonight's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! will be broadcast as a pre-recorded show rather than live due to the developing Storm Arwen and precautionary measures we're putting in place on production.

"Ant & Dec will record their links early evening and these will be played out during tonight's show. Our celebrities will remain inside the castle which is secure and we have contingencies in place to cover all weather scenarios to ensure the safety of our cast and crew".

I'm A Celebrity... airs weeknights at 9PM on ITV1.
