But HOAR can reveal it will be the jewel in the crown of the ITV show’s final week, as normal.

The task sees the famous faces don superhero-style capes and try to retrieve stars from a slippery hill as they’re blasted with wind, water ­cannons, foam and balls.

It has been a regular ­feature since series six in 2006 when Myleene Klass, 42, Jason Donovan, 52, and Matt Willis, 37, christened it.

The Cyclone has provided I’m A Celebrity viewers with some of the show’s most hilarious moments.

A TV insider said: “This often took place in the heat of the Australian jungle which meant it could easily be staged outside where it needs huge amounts of space.

“That left fans wondering if building something similar in Gwrych Castle in Wales might be impossible, because of the freezing temperatures and the limited room inside the building and its grounds.

“But it seems producers, who are determined to ensure the British equivalent is just as fun as the one Down under, have found a way to make it happen.”

In 2018, even host Holly Willoughby took on the Cyclone.
