Ant and Dec “don’t know” when I’m a Celeb will return amid concerns that the show might be cancelled


After Storm Arwen caused havoc on the set, I’m A Celeb bosses have no idea when it will be back.

Ant and Dec, the presenters, also don’t know when the programme will be returned for certain after the weather apparently battered and damaged them.

The future of this year’s series, which was filmed in Abergele at Gwyrch Castle, is uncertain. Shows were pulled over the weekend.

The celebrities were evacuated to safety on Saturday night. Stars were kept in isolation and placed in Covid bubbles.

“The safety of the entire site is our top priority. This means that the show will be back on the air in as little time as possible.
