Where is I’m A Celebrity 2020 filmed?

I’m A Celebrity 2020 is being filmed in Gwrych Castle, north Wales, this year, making a change from the usual jungle in Australia.

The 200-year-old medieval castle dates back to 1810, with many believing it’s haunted.

Gwrych Castle is set within 250 acres of gardens and grounds and has incredible views across the Irish Sea.

What are the coronavirus rules?

ITV’s 'Covid management plan' details strict measures the cast and crew must take to stay safe during the pandemic.

The crew wear buzzers that go off when they come too close to one another, while there is limited production access to the celebrity contestants.

Celebrities quarantined for two and a half weeks beforehand which means they can live together, but will continue to get Covid-19 tests every three days.

Ant and Dec have also formed a bubble and will be given regular coronavirus tests.

Visitors are banned from the site, while lots of the crew are working remotely from London.

The crew members that are on site, wear masks when they’re walking around and also have coronavirus tests twice a week.

Richard Cowles, director of entertainment at ITV Studios, said: "Everyone on the production team has worked incredibly hard to bring I'm A Celebrity to Wales and a massive part of making that possible has been developing our protocols around COVID.

"We have worked with ITV's independent chief medical officer Dr Paul Litchfield, ITV's health and safety department, and our own health and safety and medical teams to keep everyone connected with the production - both in front of and behind the camera - as safe as possible."
