I'm a Celebrity returned to our TV screens last night providing us with a slice of normality in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The camp has relocated to the atmospheric setting of Gwyrch castle in North Wales as traveling to the Australian jungle wasn't possible this year, and fans seem to be loving the spooky new location.
Ant and Dec are back to present the 20th series, which includes celebrity campmates TV star Vernon Kay, Sir Mo Farah, Victoria Derbyshire, Corrie legend Beverley Callard and EastEnders star Shane Ritchie.
Paralympic gold medalist Hollie Arnold, author and podcaster Giovanna Fletcher, Strictly's AJ Pritchard, and Radio 1 DJ Jordan North complete the line-up.
One fan commented: "Controversial opinion: I think I prefer the castle to the jungle."
Another added: "I'm loving the gothic castle vibes!"
Have to say the Castle in 'I'm a Celebrity, is absolutely stunning.

Although the location was very different, the show kicked off with some very familiar trials which saw some of the celebrities quaking in their hiking shoes. Five of the campmates had to abseil down a cliff to retrieve their fellow campmate's backpacks, which saw DJ Jordan being physically sick as he was so terrified of heights.

Later on, all of the celebrities took part in a critter-filled trial called Gates of Hell. They were placed next to one another in caged chambers as they had to team up together to transfer 10 stars from one side of a wall to the other as maggots and cockcroaches were dropped on their heads. The campmates managed to secure seven stars in total, meaning they would have seven meals for dinner tonight.
On tonight's episode Jordan and Shane will be facing The Viper Vault, after being voted by the public to part in the latest trial.
I'm a Celebrity continues on Monday, November 16, at 9pm on ITV.
