I’m A Celeb bosses ‘have just two weeks to decide whether to return to Wales’

DECISION TIME

I'M A Celeb bosses 'have just two weeks to decide whether to return to Wales.'

The 2020 edition of the show took place at Gwrych Castle in Abergele, Wales due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

It's been revealed that if bosses do opt to host this year's series of the popular show in Wales once again, it would cost them more than if they host the series in Australia.

A source told MailOnline: "ITV need to decide in the next two weeks whether they go to Australia or Wales this year. It's decision time!"

They added: "It costs MORE to film in Wales than fly to Australia as it's a four month set build.

"That's why they have to make a decision now. Time is running out. And there is no show without them. So it's all pointing to being Wales. Oz is far too risky."

However, a plan is in place in both locations for when the eventual decision is made.

"No decisions have been made regarding the location for the new series and we have contingencies and plans in place for all possible options."

Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison says the country's borders will be closed for the foreseeable future and if there were to open too soon, it would increase the prospect of another coronavirus outbreak.

Current rules and regulation in Australia state people can only travel to the country if they are 'exempt' or have been 'granted an individual exemption'.

Even I'm a Celeb hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly said plan for the series to return down under are "still up in the air."

In the first ever series of I'm A Celeb to take place outside of Australia, author Giovanna Fletcher was crowned the Queen of the Jungle.

BBC Radio 1 presenter Jordan North came second, television presenter Vernon Kay finished third.

Whether the survival reality television show returns to Oz or is hosted on British shores once again, it will certainty be another entertaining series with a great celeb lineup.
