I’m a Celebrity to introduce ‘new medieval theme’ ahead of Welsh castle location

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is believed to be ditching its jungle theme and heading for a more historic journey for the campmates, according to an insider.

The speculation comes as the 20th season of the reality show is set to return to ITV next month after facing major hurdles along the way.

With campmates normally jetting out to Australia, they will swap the Gold Coast, Brisbane, for the mountainous terrain of Abergele, north Wales.

With the new surroundings, a new theme is believed to be in the works incorporating the historical elements of haunted Gwrych Castle.

North Wales Live reported that an insider on I'm A Celeb has said that "the set looks amazing," after bosses took inspiration from the castle which was originally built in the 14th century.

They added that the theme will reference the history of the former family home which was rebuilt in 1812.

The surrounding landscape and estate around the castle has served as battle sites in the past, with insiders claiming that stocks could be used.

I'm A Celeb's jungle theme normally ties in with the gruesome bushtucker trials and the campmate's wardrobe.

Despite Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford confirming that Wales will go into full circuit breaker lockdown restrictions in a bid to contain the coronavirus, I'm A Celeb will still be going ahead.

As the set and competition is classed as a place of work, they have been given the green light to go ahead – while the country faces a lockdown period which will come into force later this week.

The official Twitter account for Gwrych Castle penned: "Following the announcement today from the First Minister, the overriding message is that filming CAN continue in Wales providing related activity cannot be undertaken from home, and there is full compliance with Welsh law.

"We cannot wait to see I'm A Celebrity on our screens!"

A spokesperson for I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! told Mirror Online: "I'm A Celebrity continues to adhere to all relevant guidelines as well as our own strict Covid protocols."
