I'm A Celeb 2020

ITV have confirmed I'm A Celeb 2020 will take place at a ruined castle in the UK countryside.

They made the announcement earlier today.

Ant and Dec will join forces once again to host the series live.

The only thing that's different is the location, otherwise, contestants will still have to face grueling trials and challenges.

And of course this is all in a bid to win food and treats for their camp-mates... or castle mates?

For the first time in the show's history, contestants are fighting to become the king or queen of the castle.

Whereas in previous years, they would have been fighting to become the king of queen of the jungle.

ITV statements

ITV's Director of Television, Kevin Lygo released a statement:

'We announced last week that we were doing all we could to make the series and I’m thrilled that we can bring the show to viewers albeit not in the jungle.'

'We have a great team both on and off screen and I know they will produce a hugely entertaining series.'

While ITV's Director of Entertainment, Richard Cowles said:

'We pulled out all the stops to try and make the series happen in Australia.'

'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 continued, '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.'

'Our celebrities will probably have to swap shorts for thermals but they can still look forward to a basic diet of rice and beans and plenty of thrills and surprises along the way.'

Now that that's been decided, we're dying to know who'll to enter the castle!
