The foreign TV executives were so impressed by the monster ratings of the last British series – which was staged in December at Gwrych Castle in Abergele, Conwy – that they want a castle too. But the head of ITV revealed that the UK show will not be staged in Wales again if the relaxation of Covid rules mean they can go back to Queensland, Australia.
Chief executive Dame Carolyn McCall, speaking as ITV published its group annual results, said the revised format in Wales had been a “tremendous success”.
Contestants included Radio 1 DJ Jordan North, television presenter Vernon Kay, Olympic runner Sir Mo Farah, actor Shane Richie and BBC presenter Victoria Derbyshire.

Ant McPartlin, who presents I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! with Declan Donnelly, recently admitted he would be happy to return to Wales.
