ITV confirmed the news

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! is returning to Wales for this year's series.

The show will film at Gwyrch Castle for the second year in a row due to continued uncertainty around COVID-19 travel restrictions.

The 2020 series was filmed in the UK for the first time as the ongoing pandemic forced producers to scrap plans to return to Australia.

Katie Rawcliffe, ITV head of entertainment commissioning, said: "We can confirm today that we'll be returning to Wales for the 2021 series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

"We've always said we have contingencies in place for the series if the COVID situation continued to bring uncertainty, and after a highly successful run at the castle last year we're pleased that we can return there.

"I have no doubt the production team will produce another hugely entertaining series."

Richard Cowles, director of unscripted at Lifted Entertainment, which makes the show, said: "With the continued uncertainty around COVID and international travel we have taken the decision not to return to our home in Australia for the 2021 series.

"We're excited to return to Gwrych Castle.

"The last series was a huge success and we were made to feel so welcome by everyone locally and can't wait to see everyone again."
