I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! returns to Wales for the 2021 series
ITV today announced that the forthcoming 21st series of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! will return to the historic Gwrych Castle, Abergele in North Wales.
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.
Hot on the heels of Giovanna Fletcher being crowned Queen of the Castle in 2020, viewers will once again see the celebrities undertake gruelling trials and action packed challenges to win food and treats, in the lead up to one of them emerging victorious.
The first show of the 2020 series, which ran on Sunday 15 November at 9pm, consolidated to an audience of 13.8m TV viewers [52% audience share] over the first seven days of its availability. With 0.5m viewers watching via non-TV devices, the total reached 14.3m viewers. It was also the most popular show of 2020 for young viewers with an average of 2.8m and two thirds [66 per cent] of 16-34s watching across the series, and overall it became the second most watched series of I'm A Celebrity, which has been on air since 2002.
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."
