While this year's cast and crew don't have to deal with the scary jungle creatures, there may still be a more supernatural fear to contend with...

According to legend, the 200-year-old Gwrych Castle is haunted by ghosts - and crew are reportedly terrified after seeing “shadowy figures” and hearing “horrifying noises”.

Staff are said to be insisting on moving around in groups once the light fades, which is when most of the filming takes place.

An insider said: “People thought they saw a figure at one of the windows a couple of nights ago — and that spot has been pretty much off limits ever since.”

Another source added: “The place is utterly terrifying at night.

“Several of the crew are completely horror-stricken and don’t want to go up to the castle.

“There are lots of lights on the main sets but there are also many dark areas behind the scenes and some noises are extremely spooky.

“Even staff who don’t believe in that sort of thing are reluctant to go up to some parts that were supposed to be used for running equipment and camera positions.

“If people keep getting scared, bosses are going to have to do something to combat it.”

It was previously reported that a photo taken 10 years ago appears to show a terrifying ghost at the castle window.

Some people think that the castle is haunted by its previous owner Countess of Dundonald - who is said to be angry that her husband stole valuables from the castle.
