From the depths of the Australian jungle to a beautiful Grade I listed country castle in North Wales, this year’s TV series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here will be filmed in the stunning and historic site of Gwrych Castle in Abergele.

The 200 year old castle was built between 1812 and 1822 by Lloyd Hesketh Bamford-Hesketh. It was one of the first Welsh attempts to replicate medieval architecture in Europe. As the new home for the 2020 I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here series, jungle life will be swapped for haunted towers and a medieval setting.

Who you gonna call?

The new I’m a Celebrity camp at Gwrych Castle will bring about its own unique set of challenges. Instead of Australian wildlife or creepy crawlies coming into camp, celebrities will be staying in a haunted castle. Gwrych Castle has held events in the past to explore reports of infamous ghosts who haunt the castle by night. The ghost of Countess of Dundonald is said to walk within the castle to this day, after many sightings of a woman in white.
