The pair, both 46, revealed how the show was temporarily shelved after Storm Arwen razed the Welsh castle where the series was filmed.

Speaking from Ant’s Cottage in North Wales, the pair said they were “simply perished” after their show was canceled for the first time in history.


He said strong winds tore down the production team’s marquees and tents – with Gwyrich Castle the only building remaining unaffected.

The pair recounted how the owners ordered them to come to the palace on Friday afternoon, saying: “We got a call to come to the site ASAP on Friday afternoon because we had to watch the show to be safe in case the satellites went down.” Had to pre-record.”

As anticipated, Storm Arwen did indeed strike, leaving some of the show’s production facilities in disrepair.

December told hosts Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield: “The wind had destroyed the tent base. The site was unsafe.

“Nobody was allowed to return to the site. We had no choice but to pull their show. We were just disappointed.

“We had to put the celebs back in quarantine. It’s been a huge week of upheaval.”

Ant praised the production team of the show, saying: “They worked round the clock.

“Castle is something that’s perfectly fine. The only reason we took celebrities out was because they meant to leave.

They have no phones, no internet and they are cut off from the rest of the world – how we like it.”

He continued: “They were absolutely desperate to leave. Arlene took her sleeping bag. Danny is sleeping on the floor because he’s not comfortable in bed.

“They’ve completed a week of it and they want the full experience.”

I’m A Celebrity is returning to our screens tonight at 9 PM, when celebrities were allowed back into the palace.
