After a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, ITV confirmed: “Returning to their home in Australia after a two-year hiatus, our celebrities will leave their plush pads and luxury far behind as they spend up to three weeks hosting in the Australian jungle with a host of surprises created for them.”
Gwrych Castle took to Twitter to thank ITV for the “honour” of hosting the show, saying: “As a small charity we will always be grateful to ITV and I’m a celebrity for the opportunity to host one of the most -the biggest watched shows in the UK.
“The show showed the true beauty of the castle to millions of people and enabled us to carry out urgent repairs after years of neglect, vandalism and arson.
“We have a lot to do to restore the castle to its former glory, but we are excited for the future!
“We will continue to work with ITV and I’m A Celebrity and we still have lots of items and decorations from the last 2 years, such as The Clink, I’m A Celebrity throne, privy and the phone booth.”

Ant and Dec will return as hosts of the show, with the hosting duo recently confirming to us on Heart Breakfast that they are excited to be back in Australia.
Ant said: “The plan is we’re going back to Australia, we don’t want to go anywhere else. We have to get back there. Back to your spiritual home, back to where it all began.
“Everyone wants to see some sunshine this time of year on TV.”
What’s the rumored line for I’m A Celebrity 2022?
We still don’t know who will be joining I’m A Celeb this year, but there are some rumours…
EastEnders star Danny Dyer has been roped in for I’m A Celebrity after leaving the BBC soap as Mick Carter.
A source previously told The Sun: “Producers think Danny would be great in the series and is their number one target.
“They’re hoping it’s going to be finished on time, they’re definitely going to get a big cash offer.”
Another Walford legend has also joined the jungle in Natalie Cassidy.
She may be taking a break from her role as Sonia Fowler, as she recently told The Guardian that she may switch careers.
She said: “I always think that when I’m in a restaurant and I’m being looked after really well, I can do those front of house things really well.
“Or maybe you’ll see me in the jungle.”
Good Morning Britain weather presenter Alex Beresford recently said he would be joining the I’m A Celebrity cast.
“Of all the shows I’d like to do, I’d like to do The Jungle,” he said.
“But the only thing is, I don’t know how good I’d be with snakes and spiders, but I think that’s the show that all of us in television want to do, that’s the show, right?”
“I’m a fan of the heat, so going to Australia would be great. I’d get stuck, but I think you laid down with snakes all around you, ugh!’
Bake Off winner Nadia was previously asked to take part in the 2020 series but turned down the offer.
She previously told The Guardian: “This year I was asked to do ‘I’m a Celebrity’ and I kind of regret not doing it. It’s just so cold in Wales: if I’m going to have cockroaches in my trousers, I’d rather it be in the sun, thanks.
“Still, I can’t help but wonder what it would be like.”
Olympic diver Tom Daley is rumored to be joining the I’m A Celebrity cast after taking a break from training.
The Inbetweeners star James Buckley previously said he was interested in joining the cast of I’m A Celebrity.
He said: “I’m not a big fan of celebrity reality shows. But out of all these, I’m Celebrity… Get me out of here! personally it seems the most interesting because it feels like a challenge.
“I’d be cold, I’d be hungry, and even when you won food, I’d be like, ‘I just want a Big Mac.’
