If there's one thing we look forward to in winter (no, not mince pies - but that too), it's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! What could be more festive than watching a load of famous people eating dodgy foods and surrounded by creepy crawlies?

We already know the 2020 version of the show is going to look a little different to usual, due to the travel restrictions and ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which means the show will now be set in a castle in Wales rather than the Australian outback.

But despite the Welsh fire breaker lockdown - and impending four week lockdown in England - ITV have insisted the show is going ahead, and have even announced a start date.

The Sun say the show will start on Sunday, November 15th regardless of the lockdowns. It will be set in the derelict 200-year-old Gwrych Castle, Abergele, in North Wales, and will include familiar features such as the central camp fire, task areas, outside loo and logs to congregate on.

It's thought the show will run for three weeks as usual, with hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly returning to our screens each evening.

As for the line-up? This year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! camp will reportedly include Mo Farah, AJ Pritchard from Strictly, The Vivienne from RuPaul's Drag Race UK and Vernon Kay.

Here's to hoping the show can go ahead in a safe and covid-secure environment.
