The news that I’m A Celebrity will take place in the UK this year was announced earlier today.
In a statement about the change of setting, ITV Studios director of entertainment Richard Cowles commented:
“Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and despite us looking at many different contingencies, it became apparent that it just wasn’t possible for us to travel and make the show there.
“However, we are all really excited about a UK version of I’m a Celebrity.
“While it will certainly be different producing the show from the UK, the same tone and feel will remain.”
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! will return later this year on ITV.
