I’m A Celebrity news: ITV announces major change to tonight’s show

Storm Arwen is set to hit Wales

In latest I’m A Celebrity news, the show will be pre-recorded tonight (November 26) due to severe weather conditions.

Ant and Dec usually present the ITV programme live from Gwrych Castle in Wales.

However, the hosts have been forced to record the show in advance as a “precautionary measure” as Storm Arwen sweeps Wales.

It comes after reports claimed that bosses are concerned over campmates quitting the show.

Richard Madeley recently left the castle after falling ill overnight.

The star updated fans on his Instagram account, saying that he couldn’t return to camp because he’d broken the secure COVID bubble.
