How I'm A Celeb will be toughest ever series as celebs are forced to stay in castle longer and do more trials than ever

THIS year's I'm A Celebrity campmates will face more trials than ever before – and spend the longest time in the castle yet. 

Bosses have promised as many as 24 gruelling challenges have been planned for this year's campmates.


And the stars checking in to Gwrych Castle, north Wales won't be able to hide – because most of the trials will involve more than just one celebrity.

It comes after last year's contests were slammed for being "too easy".

Speaking from Gwyrch Castle, I'm A Celebrity's Executive Producer Olly Nash said: “We did set out at the beginning to make it much tougher. They are in for longer, the trials are bigger.

"The trials were limited last year and this time they are much closer to the Australian series in terms of scale.

“Absolutely they are harder and bigger and there are more trials over the series than ever before and more triallists taking part. That was the learnings of having one series here.

“We have 24 trials this year, I think normally it is closer to 20 in a full series, it is the most ever and absolutely the most celebrities taking part.”

Giant towers are already in place in front of the castle ready for a huge challenge to start the show.

The Turrets of Terror challenge will be part of the celeb's entrance task.

They will compete in two teams to win the chance to stay inside the castle, or be banished to the new outdoor medieval prison camp called The Clink.

The space – new for this year – is uncovered and will be freezing as night falls.

Stars will sleep indoors in an old stable, lying on sleeping bags on the floor.

Bosses added that provisions won't be made for the show's oldest contestant ever Arlene Phillips, 78.

Creative Director Tom Gould added: "It's going to be incredibly exposed and cold. The group dynamic in The Clink will be interesting because there is nowhere to get any space."

The series will run for the usual full three weeks after last year’s was cut short due to Covid. 


I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! starts on Sunday, November 21 at 9pm on ITV.
