​I’m A Celebrity Viewers Amused By ‘Unnecessary' Detail In New Series

​I’m A Celebrity Viewers Amused By ‘Unnecessary' Detail In New Series

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! looks a little different this year, with the coronavirus pandemic forcing the action to take place slightly closer to home.

Yep, we've swapped the Aussie jungle for a castle in north Wales, meaning for the first time viewers are actually in the same time zone as the contestants.

Normally, the programme is filmed in New South Wales - which is 11 hours ahead of the UK - so often as we're tuning in for an episode in the evening, Ant and Dec are looking a little more bleary-eyed as they've just woken up.

To avoid any confusion, there's always a clock showing on the screen to show what time it is over in Australia.

But fans were slightly baffled to find out this is a feature that's been carried over to the new series, despite the fact that contestants are in the same time zone as viewers.

One viewer tweeted: "If #ImACeleb is in Wales, why did ITV still feel they needed to put the live time in the corner of the screen?"

Someone else wrote: "The live time in the corner is unnecessary."

A third said sarcastically: "Didn't know the time was the same in Wales as it is here."

Another added: "Haha, do we REALLY need the time in the corner of the screen this year?! 'Oh bloody hell, it's 22:36 in Wales, fancy that!'"

Others have simply said they find it odd that this year they'll be on the same time to contestants and the show's presenters.

"Gonna be weird being in the same time zone as the boys but here we go," one said.

Ant and Dec even made a quick quip about the whole thing in last night's episode.

"Quick time check: it's 9.58 Sunday night here in Wales, which means over in Australia it's 7.58 on Monday morning," Ant said.

Shrugging, Dec chips in: "If you're bothered."

For 2020, the format has been relocated to north Wales due to the coronavirus pandemic, with our group of celebrities given a new, reimagined version of the long-running reality TV show.

Now in its 20th series, contestants including Team GB legend Mo Farah, presenter Victoria Derbyshire and Radio 1 DJ Jordan North are being housed at the historic Gwrych Castle in Abergele, with views of the Welsh countryside and overlooking the Irish Sea.

They will face freezing temperatures in the run-down fort - which is spread across 250 acres of gardens and grounds.

As with previous 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.

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! continues at 9pm tonight (16 November).
