I'm A Celebrity has been cancelled tonight (Monday, 29th November).

The hit ITV reality show will not return to our screens this evening after Storm Arwen destroyed the set in North Wales.

This marks the third day in a row the show has been forced off air, after Saturday and Sunday night's shows were cancelled.

The news that there would be no new episode on Monday was first revealed by Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield during today's This Morning.

They revealed that since Storm Arwen began to wreak havoc on the area, the celebrities have been sent back to live in their isolation homes which they were in before the show started.

Phillip said during Monday's This Morning: "It has been announced there is no live I'm A Celebrity tonight after the castle was hit with Storm Arwen over the weekend".

Holly added that this was "gutting" for everyone involved in the show's production, including the celebrities.

Matthew Wright, who was a guest on the show at the time, said it was a "disaster", but added that it was "nobodies fault".
