Besides the destination changing from Australia to the UK, the series will still see the celebrities go through challenges to try and win food and treats, and eventually leading to one celeb being crowned King or Queen of the Castle.

This update comes just a week after bosses had confirmed that the new series would go ahead as planned this autumn even though the Covid-19 pandemic had made everyone question the future of the show.

Kevin Lygo, ITV’s Director of Television said: “We announced last week that we were doing all we could to make the series and I’m thrilled that we can bring the show to viewers albeit not in the jungle.”

“We have a great team both on and off-screen and I know they will produce a hugely entertaining series”. – Lygo added.

Richard Cowles, Director of Entertainment at ITV Studios said: “We pulled out all the stops to try and make the series happen in Australia.”

Cowles went on to say: “Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and despite us looking at many different contingencies, it became apparent that it just wasn’t possible for us to travel and make the show there.”

“However, we are all really excited about a UK version of I’m A Celebrity. While it will certainly be different producing the show from the UK, the same tone and feel will remain.” – Cowles added.

Cowles also included that the celebrities would most likely have ‘swap shorts for thermals’, but they still have bland meals and lots of fun and surprises to also look forward to.

The series usually runs for three weeks and is expected to begin sometime in November. So even though the celebrities won’t be in the jungle as they usually are, we can still look forward to a lot of entertainment in a ruined castle.
