I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!  goes back to Wales for the 2021 series

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will return to the historic Gwrych Castle, Abergele in North Wales. The show, 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.

Following Giovanna Fletcher being crowned Queen of the Castle in 2020, viewers will once again see a group of celebrities undertake gruelling trials and action packed challenges to win food and treats, in the lead up to one of them emerging victorious.

The ITV press release gives a good snapshot of viewing figures for last year’s series:

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.

As in 2020 the show is not travelling to Australia due to the continuing uncertainties in the travel industry, and wonder if perhaps the move to Wales may become permanent. You can read more in the official press release.
