With views of the Welsh countryside, Gwrych Castle is nestled in a tree-lined hillside overlooking the Irish Sea. Well, it might not be Australia but it sounds snazzy, right?

The atmospheric ruined castle with its sprawling design is spread across 250 acres of gardens and grounds. So practically a jungle, then.

Ant and Dec will (of course) host an adapted version of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! live every night on ITV from the castle this autumn.

As on the regular series, viewers will see the celebrities undertake gruelling trials and fun-filled challenges to win food and treats in the lead up to one of them being crowned, for the first time ever, King or Queen of the Castle.

Dr Mark Baker, Chair of the Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust said: "I'm absolutely delighted that I'm A Celebrity has chosen Gwrych Castle to be its UK location for the 2020 series.

Richard Cowles, Director of Entertainment at ITV Studios said: "The Australian jungle is such an integral part of the show it was a big challenge to find a UK location where we could continue to deliver what viewers love about I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!

"But Gwrych will definitely do that; the Castle sits in an amazing and atmospheric setting on a hillside overlooking the Irish Sea.

"While there will be plenty of changes required as we move from New South Wales in Australia to North Wales in the UK, we are really excited to see how we can adapt the format and make the Castle our new home for a very special 20th series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! this Autumn."
