ITV has confirmed that the 21st series of the hit reality TV show will return to Gwrych Castle, Abergele in North Wales. Find out what we know so far.

I'm A Celeb is heading back to Wales for its 2021 series.

The hit ITV reality show was forced to stay closer to home in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and it has today been announced that it will return to the historic Gwrych Castle, Abergele in North Wales for another series.

An ITV media announcement states: "The show, produced by Lifted Entertainment, part of ITV Studios, will be hosted by Ant & Dec and broadcast live every night from the ruined castle, as a brand new cast of celebrities adjust to their new surroundings."

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."

Dr Mark Baker, Chair of the Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust said": I’m absolutely delighted that I’m A Celebrity has chosen Gwrych Castle to be its UK location for the 2021 series.  Gwrych Castle is a beautiful grade I listed historic house and a must-see destination for tourists visiting Wales. I’m A Celebrity being here will really help support its ongoing restoration as well as giving the region a much-needed economic boost. We are all very excited to be working with the team again."
