Ant and Dec confirm Im A Celebrity 2021 format change after backlash last year

Ant and Dec have revealed that I'm A Celebrity viewers complained so much in 2020 after the format of the show changed, that thing are going back to the way they were.

Speaking at the NTAs last week, Declan Donnelly revealed: "One thing we will be doing differently this year [is] we will have a full series."

It comes after last year producers decided to do the same thing as Love Island and have a highlights show on the Saturday night, with live shows the rest of the week.

Dec continued: "We got to the end of the first week on Saturday night and, because of Covid protocols, we had to do a highlight show.

"Oh my God, you should have seen our socials," he laughed.

He said the change meant they "went from heroes to zeros," as Ant McPartlin added: "So we're not doing that again. There'll be a show every night."

Many viewers were hoping for a return to the jungle for 2021, but with the continuing Covid pandemic the producers were forced to have the show in Wales again.

The castle is getting ready for the next series, with visitors being greeted by this message: "Gwrych Castle is now closed to the public until 2022 to make way for this year's I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

"We would like to thank everybody who has supported us so far this year, either by visiting the castle, volunteering or donating.

"As a charity, we rely on your support and every penny that we raise goes towards the conservation and restoration of the Gwrych Castle Estate.

"We will continue to bring you updates and exclusive photos and videos across our social media, along with giveaways and raffles!"

Ant and Dec also said they are both excited for the show to return to Wales.

Ant said: "It was a real change to do it in Wales last year but it was absolutely brilliant.

"We loved it, we loved doing it there and we can't wait to do it again this year."

Fans haven't got long to wait, and the rumour mill is whirling already about who might be starring.
