Gwrych Castle thanked I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here! for the “honor” of hosting the reality show when ITV confirmed its return to Australian Jungle.

“As a small charity, we will always be grateful to ITV and I’m Celebrity for the opportunity to host one of the most watched shows in the UK.”
It added: “The performance showcased the true beauty of the Castle to millions of people, and enabled us to carry out urgent repairs after years of neglect, vandalism and arson.
“We have a lot of work to do to return the Castle to its former glory, but we are excited for the future.
“We will continue to work with ITV and I am a Celebrity, and we still have many items and supplies from the past 2 years such as The Clink, I’m A Celebrity throne, secrets and boxes phone . “
I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, hosted by presenting duo Anthony “Ant” McPartlin and Declan “Dec” Donnelly, will return to ITV in the fall.
Presenting duo Geordie have hosted the show since its debut in 2002, except for the 2018 series when McPartlin, 46, was temporarily replaced by Holly Willoughby.
The 2021 series was won by Emmerdale actor Danny Miller, while the last celebrity to win the Rainforest show was Jacqueline Jossa in 2019.
