Ant and Dec fuel rumours I’m A Celebrity is returning to Wales for 2021 as they say they ‘won’t miss the jetlag’ from Oz


ANT and Dec have fuelled rumours I’m A Celebrity is returning to Wales in 2021 – saying they “won’t miss the jetlag” from Oz.

The hit show welcomed a change of scenery last year, swapping out the Australian jungle for the UK countryside due to coronavirus travel restrictions.

Ant and Dec have hinted I’m A Celeb won’t be returning to the Australian jungle this year

Speaking to Digital Spy Magazine, the presenting duo floated the idea of heading to Gwrych Castle in Abergele, Wales, to film I’m a Celebrity once more.

Show host Ant, 45, said he’d be “very happy” to stay within the UK, but admitted he’d miss the weather Down Under.

He said: “If during coronavirus we have to stay put and do it in Wales again, I’d be very happy.

“We were very welcomed in Wales. There were cardboard cut-outs of me and Dec in the butcher’s, and the local school did a tribute. We’d happily go back there. We’d miss the sunshine, mind.”

Also taking a diplomatic stand, his co-host remarked: “The people in Wales were lovely. They made us feel very welcome. I had a lovely time. I will miss the sunshine, but I will not miss the jetlag of coming back from Australia.

“I’d love to go back to Oz. But if we had to go back to Wales, I wouldn’t be disappointed.”

The last series of the show was won by podcast host Giovanna Fletcher.

Ant also discussed his recent engagement to Anne-Marie Corbett in the interview.

“It was a lovely way to end the year,” he said.

“I’m a romantic at heart. You know, there were flowers, and afternoon tea in front of the Christmas tree.”

When asked whether Donnelly would be the best man at his wedding, he said: “He was very good last time. He has been my best man. I’ve been his best man.

“But I suppose it depends on what kind of wedding we have. There’s been no plans.”
