This year’s I’m A Celeb will be filmed in spooky castle – haunted by ‘floating woman in white’

The series will be filmed in the UK for the first time ever this year

Last year's series took place in Gwrych Castle

This year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is set to be filmed in a spooky castle based in North Wales, which is haunted by a “floating woman in white”.

Earlier this week, ITV confirmed that this year’s show won’t be filmed in Australia, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Sun has since reported that this year’s campmates will live in the eerie ruins of Gwrych Castle for three weeks – instead of the Australian bush.

ITV are reportedly spending almost £1million on taking over the venue for six weeks, to prepare it for the upcoming series.


According to reports, the 200-year-old castle is haunted by the Countess of Dundonald, who died back in 1924.

The ruins are regularly visited by ghost hunters, who believe the property is haunted by multiple spirits.

A castle worker told the newspaper: “A few people have claimed to have seen a floating woman in white. Ghost-hunters have also claimed to have felt the presence of her and gamekeepers.”

“We think the Countess might be unhappy as her husband stripped the castle of valuables. They certainly didn’t have a happy marriage.”

The show’s new location will also inspire a host of new and exciting trials for this year’s contestants.


A source said: “Just because it’s in the UK, it doesn’t mean that celebrities can breathe a sigh of relief and think they are free of snakes, rats and frogs.”

“There are lots of plans to terrify them with some tried and tested methods. There will definitely be tasks where the stars have to eat unappetising things and put creatures in their mouths like previous years.”

“They’re determined to make the trials as exciting and nail-biting as possible. Not only will there be creepy crawlies galore, but now they have the added aid of playing with a haunted castle. They think it will make for brilliant TV.”

Producers are said to be “chuffed” with the new location, and it’s understood the entire crew will self-isolate on site for the three weeks of filming.

The series is expected to begin sometime in November, and a host of well-known faces have already been tipped to appear on the show – including Strictly pro-dancer AJ Pritchard, former England footballer John Barnes, Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon, and TV presenter Vernon Kay.
