Ant and Dec drive fans wild with FIRST sneak peek at new I'm A Celeb series as show returns to Wales

ANT and Dec have sent fans wild with a FIRST sneak peek at new I'm A Celeb series as the show returns to Wales.

The Geordie duo told fans that they have started filming for the ITV show as they posed for a photo in south east Wales.

Looking inquisitive, the hosts stood in front of a sign that read Mynyddislwyn, a district in Monmouthshire.

Taking to their official Instagram account, they wrote: "Guess where we’ve just popped to for a little bit of filming 🤔 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 #IAC2021."

I'm a Celebrity fans were thrilled to see the lads up to mischief, with one writing: "How exciting, I can't wait for I'm a Celeb, loved the castle last year."

Another posted: "Ahhh so excited, love I'm a Celebrity every year."

"Eeeeek how exciting I'm a Celeb is on its way…oh and I like the stubble Ant."

Gwrych Castle in Abergele, Wales, will be home to the show for a second time this autumn.

I'm a Celeb bosses have been forced to cancel plans for the show to return to Australia.

CASTLE IS FOR KEEPS

The U-turn decision was made following crunch talks after fears Australia could shut its borders because of the ongoing pandemic.

Celebrities booked for this year’s series had previously been told that they should pack their bags for Australia, including hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, both 45.

An insider said: “It is with a heavy heart that I’m A Celebrity won’t be going back to Australia as hoped.

“Everyone working on the show was confident it would pan out but as time has gone on they have been forced to make some tough decisions.

“All the stars had been briefed about going to Australia and work had already started on getting the camp into shape.

“The government gave ITV the green light in March and it was full steam ahead.

“However the cons started to outweigh the pros and after a crisis meeting this morning they decided they had to revert back.

“The plan is now for all the stars to go to Gwrych castle in Wales.”

In January The Sun revealed how ITV bosses had secured the castle for this year just in case this happened.

The first show of the last series, won by Giovanna Fletcher, 35, was a ratings hit – getting 14.3million viewers tuning in.

It ended up being the second most watched series of the long-running show which started in 2002.
