I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! will relocate from the Australian jungle to a ruined British castle for this year's series, ITV has said.The broadcaster said the coronavirus pandemic meant it "just wasn't possible for us to travel and make the show" Down Under as usual.That means bush tucker trials are out, but ITV promised similarly "gruelling trials and fun-filled challenges".The company hasn't revealed the location of the castle yet.It has also not revealed whether the participating celebrities will live in the castle itself or in a camp.
ITV Studios director of entertainment Richard Cowles said the company had "pulled out all the stops" to make the series happen in Australia.
'Same tone and feel'
"Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and despite us looking at many different contingencies, it became apparent that it just wasn't possible for us to travel and make the show there," he said."However, we are all really excited about a UK version of I'm A Celebrity. While it will certainly be different producing the show from the UK, the same tone and feel will remain."
What's it like to live in a castle"We have a great team both on and off-screen and I know they will produce a hugely entertaining series."Follow us on Facebook or on Twitter @BBCNewsEnts. If you have a story suggestion email
