ITV 'planning to reserve Gwrych Castle for I'm A Celebrity in 2022'

ITV 'planning to reserve Gwrych Castle for I'm A Celebrity in 2022'
ITV could stage I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in Wales for a third successive year in 2022, it is claimed.

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! could reportedly take place in Wales for a third year in a row in 2022.

The ITV show relocated to Gwrych Castle on the North coast of Wales last year as coronavirus restrictions made travel to Australia impractical - and will be based there once again this year for the same reason.

According to The Sun, producers fear that heading to Australia could still be a headache in a year's time and are looking to secure a deal for use of the castle in autumn 2022 should it be necessary.

"This time last year, the prospect of I'm A Celebrity not returning to Australia and having to return to the castle seemed slim," a source told the newspaper.

"Now the show is going back to Gwrych after ITV had the foresight to reserve it for a second series - and they want to make sure they're equally prepared for the worst in 2022.

"Going back to Oz is still the goal. But this is about bosses taking every step possible to ensure Britain's favourite TV show stays on our screens. So they're likely to approach the castle owners imminently."

The new series launches on ITV in November.
