I’M A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! has faced further chaos this week, with the stars evacuated from the castle and returned to quarantine due to Storm Arwen.
HOAR can reveal that the decision was made in a bid to speed up the show’s return to the airwaves after this weekend’s episodes were cancelled.
A source told us: “This move has been taken in a bid to speed up the show’s return to the screen. Everyone is committed to getting it back on screen as fast as possible.
“As part of that they’ve decided to take the celebrities out and put them back into quarantine like they were before they went into the castle.
“Once the site is all safe and ready to film again then they’ll return.”
ITV confirmed in a statement: “Whilst we get the production base back up and running after suffering technical issues due to the storm, we have removed the celebrities from the castle.”
The campmates will return to the castle once the show’s entire production is safely re-established, with the quarantine conditions for the celebs the same as they were before they joined the show.
If they come into contact with anybody outside of I’m A Celeb’s secure Covid bubble, they won’t be allowed to return to camp – with Richard Madeley forced out of the show after just four days due to a hospital dash.
