I'm A Celebrity Cancelled For Two Nights Due To Storm Arwen

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! has been cancelled for two nights due to Storm Arwen.

According to reports the show's production base was damaged during stormy weather.

ITV said in a statement: "Owing to technical difficulties caused by extreme weather conditions in the area, there will be no new episodes of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! this weekend (Saturday and Sunday).

"I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! will be replaced tonight and tomorrow night in the ITV schedules by compilation shows (voiced by Ant & Dec) featuring best moments from previous series."

It has been an eventful first week at Gwrych Castle in North Wales, where the programme is being filmed for a second year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

On Thursday Richard Madeley announced he was leaving the show after he was taken to hospital as a precaution when he fell ill in the early hours of the morning.

The TV star later said he felt 'fit as a fiddle' and was 'gutted' that Covid restrictions meant he was not able to return to the show.

Friday's episode of the ITV series was the first to be pre-recorded due to the weather conditions.

Co-hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly recorded their links early in the evening as part of 'precautionary measures' put in place by ITV following severe storm warnings.

The duo posted a video from outside the castle ahead of the show, with the wind whipping and roaring in the background.

"You've probably heard we've had to record the show a bit earlier tonight because of the winds here at Storm Arwen," said Donnelly.

He went on: "It's due to get worse later so everyone is afraid that the satellite is going to go down and all of that, so it's a bit risky to do a live show, so we're going to have to do it recorded tonight, which is the first time we've ever done that."

Then, in true fashion, he went on to crack a joke, adding: "It's very, very windy but even worse than that it was lentils for lunch, so Ant is a bit windy as well."
