I’m A Celebrity 2020 ‘to be filmed in Wales’ due to coronavirus pandemic

The stars of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here 2020 won’t be coming back with a tan like previous stars, as the upcoming series will be filmed in Wales. 

ITV announced on Friday that this year’s series will be filmed in the UK rather than Australia due to travel and quarantine restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

They confirmed that the series will be shot in a ruined castle in the British countryside, and new reports suggest it will be taking place in Wales. 

According to The Sun, this year’s show will take place in North Wales… We can’t wait to hear Ant and Dec try to pronounce Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch…

A source told the site: ‘Ant and Dec and the same production team are all on board and everyone is 110 per cent dedicated to making this series as brilliant as all the others.’

They added: ‘It’s been a dynamic and fast-changing situation. What is OK one day is impossible the next.

‘The team have had many, many different contingency plans in play to deal with all the various possibilities that Covid-19 has presented.

‘However as time went on it became increasingly obvious that as one problem is solved, another appeared and there came a point where producers had to make tough decisions.’

While the prospect of being covered in tens of thousands of bugs and having to eat kangaroo testicles is daunting, in past series the celebrities who have taken part have at least had warm weather to look forward to – something this year’s cohort definitely won’t have. 

Wales in November is just a few (read: a lot of) degrees colder than Australia, but at least there’s less jet-lag involved for the contestants.

It might not be as exotic a location, but the stars of this year’s show are still going to be subjected to all manner of Bushtucker Trials – even if they’re wearing thermal longjohns while taking part.
