I’m A Celebrity in weather chaos as rain storms and 54mph winds predicted to batter Gwrych Castle 

The latest crop of I’m A Celebrity contestants could be in for a rough first week as rain storms and 54mph winds threaten to batter the Welsh castle.

This year’s show has once again relocated from sunny Australia to Wales amid Covid restrictions, with the famous faces once again heading to the derelict Gwrych Castle in Conwy County, north Wales.

But long-range weather forecasts suggest that things will get off to a turbulent start, with weather experts predicting that the start of the show (tipped to be November 14th) will see half an inch of rain fall, while high winds will batter the castle.

They add that the camp could be affected by heavy rainfall in the first two weeks.  

MailOnline have contacted an I’m A Celebrity representative for comment.  

Setting: This year’s show has once again relocated from sunny Australia to Wales amid Covid restrictions, with the famous faces once again heading to the derelict Gwrych Castle in Conwy County, north Wales

It comes as I’m A Celebrity bosses are set to yet again enforce a two week quarantine for the contestants to make sure they do not suffer similar crisis to Strictly Come Dancing.  

Producers are going to create a bubble for the famous faces which will attempt to avoid rows over vaccinations and keep them safe once in the camp at Gwrych Castle in Wales.

A show spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘Like last year, our celebrities will do a two week quarantine with regular testing prior to entering the castle, and will then form a bubble for the duration of their time on the show.’

It comes after another primetime show fell into disarray when Strictly Come Dancing had difficulties at the start of the series.  

Three professionals allegedly refused the Covid vaccination, while Tom Fletcher and Amy Dowden tested positive for the disease – forcing them to miss an episode. 

The year before, the show’s first same-sex couple Katya Jones and Nicola Adams were forced to withdraw from the competition after Katya contracted the virus.

Last year, I’m A Celebrity required the celebrities to wear proximity monitors which flashed and buzzed when they came too close to one another. 

Bosses also scaled down the production team, and had cameras set up already on-site so cameramen didn’t have to be on the set.  

Rumoured to be in the line up for this year’s programme is former Eastenders actor Adam Woodyatt.

Also apparently set to join is journalist Richard Madeley who apparently signed a £200,000 contract with the reality show. 

A source told The Sun: ‘He’s a favourite with ITV execs. He’s brilliant off and on screen so it seemed as good a time as any to throw caution to the wind and eat animal bits.’ 

Dame Arlene Phillips has reportedly signed up to take part in this year’s series.
