I’m A Celebrity is cancelled tonight and tomorrow night because of technical difficulties, ITV said.

Last night’s episode had to be pre-recorded due to severe weather conditions thanks to Storm Arwen.

However, Saturday and Sunday night’s shows won’t air and compilation shows “featuring best moments from previous series” will replace them.

What has happened on I’m A Celebrity recently?

Contestant Richard Madeley quit the series following a hospital dash.

Even though he felt fine after a “funny turn”, he was unable to return because he had broken the “Covid bubble” by leaving camp and heading to hospital.

Therefore, he couldn’t return to the castle.

Meanwhile, ITV recently confirmed that an intruder was removed from set after breaking in.

A statement read: “The safety of both our celebrities and our production crew remains our primary concern.”

Elsewhere, two campmates threatened to leave the castle just days into the series.

However, after winning 11 stars in a Bushtucker trial, he decided to stay.
