Is I’m A Celebrity on tonight and is it a live episode?


AFTER Storm Arwen battered the UK over the weekend, ITV was forced to evacuate the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! cast and put the show on hold.

However, there’s reason to hope that the show will be returning for a brand new live episode tonight – Monday, November 29, 2021.

The I’m A Celeb contestants were evacuated due to adverse weather conditions

Is I’m A Celebrity on tonight?

Both Saturday and Sunday night’s episodes (November 27 and 28) were cancelled due to extreme weather conditions, and it’s not totally clear if the celebs have been able to return to Gwrych Castle just yet.

However, as ITV has yet to officially cancel Monday, November 29, episode it looks like – at the moment at least – the plan is to go ahead with the show.

The show is also scheduled as normal on ITV’s TV Guide.

Why was I’m a Celebrity cancelled last night?

I’m A Celeb did not air on either the November 27 and 28.

Instead, ITV played two “best of” shows to fill the prime-time 9pm slots.

The celebrities were removed from Gwrych Castle in North Wales, and only essential crew remained on site. 

The bad weather caused a tree to crash into the castle, leaving no option but to take the celebs to safety.

Storm Arwen also ripped through a 200ft production tent.

On Saturday, November 27, 2021, HOAR revealed that the decision was made in a bid to speed up the show’s return to the airwaves.

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 is hoping that the I’m A Celeb cast will be able to return to the castle soon

How long will I’m A Celebrity be off-air for?

On Saturday, November 17, ITV officially announced that the show would not air on Saturday or Sunday – but left plans for Monday’s show up in the air.

Instead of the usual live show, Saturday and Sunday’s episodes were a compilation of highlights from previous series narrated by hosts Ant and Dec.

It marked the first time an episode of I’m A Celebrity has been pulled in its 19-year history.
