I’m A Celebrity: First look inside camp at Gwrych Castle ahead of new series

The show will be filmed in Wales this year

| Updated:

I’m A Celebrity will begin in a couple of days and ITV has revealed a glimpse inside the camp at Gwrych Castle.

10 celebrities will enter the castle on Sunday night’s launch show to begin their three-week stint in the historic building.

Due to coronavirus restrictions, this year’s series has been moved to Wales instead of its usual location, the Australian outback.

What does the I’m A Celebrity camp look like at Gwrych Castle?

The celebrities will reside at the castle and will be limited to its courtyard and their living quarters inside the building.

The stars will have access to the washroom, boiler room and then their sleeping area.

Meanwhile, jungle hammocks and showers have been replaced by iron framed camp beds and medieval baths.

Contestants will have to wash in pairs as the shower is powered by a pump.

To get running water, the stars must collect logs to fire up a boiler.

Elsewhere, the living area features a huge fire pit and log seats.

Next to the fire is the show’s familiar red telephone box, where the celebrities will receive calls to take part in the Castle Coin Challenge – which was the Dingo Dollar Challenge in the jungle.

Due to being unable to travel from Oz, Kiosk Kev has been replaced by his “long lost Welsh cousin” Kiosk Cledwyn.

Where will I’m A Celebrity trials take place?

Meanwhile, contestants, including Sir Mo Farah, Giovanna Fletcher and Shane Richie, will face trials in the castle crypt.

Those selected to take part in the trial will head down a stone staircase lined with lanterns to meet hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly.

It’s unknown what sort of trials the celebrities will face but it’s sure going to be tough.

Of course, this year, celebrities won’t have the hot Australian weather to keep them warm.

Therefore, they will have to chop logs for a campfire to keep themselves warm.

The living and sleeping quarters are also protected by a newly-built roof to shield the celebrities from the brutal Welsh weather.

However, they will have to brave the freezing outdoors to use the castle privy – which has replaced the Aussie dunny.

The castle privy is a long drop toilet over a barrel, which celebs will have to change every few days.

Finally, celebrities can access drinking water from a well in the outside area.

Gwrych Castle looks like a set from The Flintstones.
