I’m a Celebrity…may be over for another year, but it seems as if bosses are already forward-planning for 2022.
And no, they’ve not asked Boris Johnson if he’s free, despite Ant and Dec’s finale joke.
It has been reported that execs are uncertain about whether the show will be able to return to its Australian home next year, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – and are considering a third year at Gwrych Castle in Wales.
An insider revealed: “At the moment it is pretty much nailed on for a third year in the castle. Australia is opening up but could also snap shut at any time depending on how things go so that situation is far from being on an even footing.
“The executives are happy to stick with Gwyrch Castle for another year and then after that the show might finally get back Down Under.”
It has also been reported that Gwrych Castle is not taking any bookings for November 2022, just in case I’m a Celeb elect to have another year in Wales.
The source continued to The Sun: “Viewers are understanding because Australia is super-strict so they know that getting back to Oz isn’t really feasible at the moment.”
It was a tumultuous year in the castle for the celebs, seeing Richard Madeley forced to leave the programme early after a brief illness meant he was forced to go to hospital and break the show’s strict Covid bubble rules.
I’m a Celebrity was also pulled from the airwaves for a few nights, after extreme weather conditions meant celebrities were forced to exit camp.
Emmerdale star Danny Miller emerged victorious this series, being crowned I’m a Celeb’s first King of the Castle.
Speaking about his victory, he told viewers at home: “From the bottom of the heart, thank you so much for this. This is the best thing that's ever happened to me, bar my son.”
ITV declined to comment when contacted by Tyla.
