THE message is loud and clear - no plans are being made to cancel I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! despite the decision to implement a 'fire-break' in Wales.

An ITV spokesperson stressed to the Journal and its sister titles on Monday, October 19 "I'm A Celebrity continues to adhere to all relevant guidelines as well as our own strict Covid protocols."

Gwrych Castle in Abergele, who are hosting the 20th series of the popular reality series, also posted on Facebook: "Following the announcement on Monday (October 19) from the First Minister, the overriding message is that filming can continue in Wales providing related activity cannot be undertaken from home, and there is full compliance with Welsh Law.

"Welsh Government guidance on Covid-19 should also be followed.

"This includes a legal obligation and guidance on taking all reasonable measures to maintain physical distancing in the workplace, compliance with relevant industry guidelines for physical production.

"We cannot wait to see I’m A Celebrity on our screens."

The Journal has been told previously that most crew and staff connected to the show are already residing in Conwy and are staying at a nearby caravan park.

The two-week fire-break will begin on 6pm on Friday, October 23 and will end on Monday, November 9. This includes the half-term holiday for many children in Wales.

ITV said they continue to monitor all lockdown requirements.
