I’m A Celeb 'given green light' to return to Australian jungle

·1-min read

I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! has reportedly been given the green light to return to the Australian jungle.

The hit ITV show, hosted by Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, was forced to relocate to Gwrych Castle, North Wales, for last year's series due to travel restrictions amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Stars including Vernon Kay, Shane Ritchie, Victoria Derbyshire and Mo Farah took part in the show, which was eventually won by Giovanna Fletcher.

According to editors at The Sun, I’m A Celeb will be heading back to the jungle after ITV bosses were told by border officials in Australia that they would be clear to enter the country.

It was originally filmed on a plantation in Murwillumbah, New South Wales, and the outlet reports that show bosses are breathing a sigh of relief as they were desperate to return to Australia's Gold Coast to resume filming.

Producers are now informing potential camp mates, as well as crew members, that they should be prepared to fly to Australia for this year's series, rather than heading to Wales.

“Everyone is delighted with this news. All the signs are now pointing towards a return to the jungle. As great as a year in the castle was, the show is made by its surroundings and the glitz and glamour of the jungle," a source told The Sun.

However, an ITV spokesman refused to confirm the news, stating: “No final decision has yet been made regarding the location for the new series.”
