I'm A Celebrity's Saturday episode to return

I'm A Celebrity's Saturday episode to return
Ant and Dec confirm that this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! will be a full-length series.

Ant and Dec have confirmed that there will be a "full series" of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! this year.

Due to coronavirus the show is once again returning to Gwrych Castle in Wales, with the celebs competing to be named King or Queen of the Castle rather than King or Queen of the Jungle.

Last year the series was two days shorter than the show's normal 22-day run, while the Saturday night episodes were pre-recorded highlights of the week's events.

"The one thing we will be doing differently this year is we will be having a full series," Dec said at last night's National Television Awards.

"Last year we went on air with the first show on the Sunday and our socials blew up and people were like, 'I'm A Celebrity is back, that's amazing. You've saved 2020!'

"And then we got to the end of the first week and because of COVID protocols we took a break and did a highlight show – a story of the week – and you should have seen our socials: 'You've ruined 2020!' 'Why would you give us a highlight show on Saturday night?!'"

"So we're not doing that again," Ant added. "There'll be a show every night."

The new series begins on ITV in mid-November.
