However, ITV won’t be adding more episodes to the current season.

Representatives for the show have confirmed that the series will still end on the same date as originally planned.

Is I’m A Celebrity on tonight?

No, the programme won’t air tonight due to severe weather condition in Wales.

It comes after Storm Arwen caused substantial damage to the camp over the weekend.

In a recent update, Dec revealed: “The site was quite badly damaged during the storm.

“They [the crew] are in there, working round the clock, to try and get it back up and running, and back up to speed, so we can get back on-air as quickly as humanely possible.”

However, the show will return to screens tomorrow evening.
