“Gwrych Castle is a beautiful grade I listed historic house and a must-see destination for tourists visiting Wales. I’m A Celebrity being here will really help support its ongoing restoration as well as giving the region a much-needed economic boost. We are all very excited to be working with the team again.”

Meanwhile Vernon Kay, who made the final of last year’s series, recently suggested that this year’s celebs were in for a much tougher time.

“I’ve heard that it’s going to be more vicious, it’s going to be on a bigger scale,” he said. “And they’re going to be doing lots more activities. I’ve heard this year’s trials are going to be out and about – more of the countryside.”
