There will be no new episodes of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! this weekend after the show’s production base was damaged during stormy weather, a statement from ITV said.

The stars competing in the show have been removed from Gwrych Castle in Wales, where the show is filmed, while work is carried out to get the production base back up and running.

It is understood the celebrities will individually return to quarantine to ensure they remain Covid secure, and they will be back at the castle once the whole production is safely re-established.

It comes as Friday’s episode of the show was pre-recorded rather than broadcast live over fears the satellite link would be affected due to strong winds caused by Storm Arwen.

The storm was expected to hit the area surrounding Gwrych Castle around 9pm on Friday.

As a result, the show’s production base was damaged and the weekend’s planned shows have been cancelled.

I’m a Celebrity will be replaced by two compilation episodes on Saturday and Sunday, voiced by co-hosts Ant and Dec, featuring some of the “best moments’ throughout the show’s 21-year history.
