I’m A Celebrity bosses have removed its stars from the castle.

The 11 campmates have been taken from the set back into quarantine due to the poor weather in Wales as Storm Arwen wreaks havoc across the whole of the UK.

Bosses have taken the decision to remove the celebrities from Gwrych Castle in North Wales as they “get the production base back up and running” amid technical issues.

“Whilst we get the production base back up and running after suffering technical issues due to the storm, we have removed the celebrities from the castle,” ITV said in a statement.

The celebrities have been taken back to individual quarantine areas like they did before the show to ensure the set remains Covid secure. The conditions will remain the same as they did before they entered the castle.

They will be then taken back to the castle when it is safe to do so.

It is another headache for the show’s producers after they confirmed earlier today that they would be suspending the show tonight and tomorrow night over the storm.

Technical difficulties mean due to the extreme weather conditions in North Wales, no new episodes will be broadcasted on ITV tonight or tomorrow night.

A statement reads: “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.”

The production set has been damaged and Friday’s show had to be pre-recorded at Gwrych Castle in North Wales due to safety concerns with the celebrity contestants and hosts Ant and Dec.

Ant and Dec also posted the news to their Instagram page as they explained the situation in a video.

Dec said: “So you’ve probably heard we are having to record the show a bit earlier tonight because of the winds and Storm Arwen. It’s bad, it’s really windy isn’t it, you can hear the wind rattling, so we have got to get it done now and get out of here.

“It’s due to get worse later, so everybody 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 will have to do it recorded tonight, that’s the first time we’ve ever done that.”
