ITV 'books Gwrych Castle for I'm A Celebrity 2022'

ITV 'books Gwrych Castle for I'm A Celebrity 2022'
ITV reportedly takes up an option to reserve Gwrych Castle for the 2022 series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

ITV has reportedly reserved Gwrych Castle as a potential location for next year's edition of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The show has been based out of North Wales rather than the Australian jungle for the last two years due to coronavirus, but the broadcaster has previously indicated that it is keen to return down under as soon as possible.

Even though the next series is still 11 months away, ongoing uncertainty over COVID-19 - as well as Australia's tough stance on its borders - has led ITV to securing the early backup for 2022.

A source told The Sun: "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.

"But the viewers are understanding because Australia is super-strict so they know that getting back to Oz isn't really feasible at the moment.

"The show has the option for a third year and the trustees won't take on any other bookings without letting ITV know."

This year's series came to a conclusion on Sunday night with former Emmerdale star Danny Miller being crowned the winner.
