Im a Celeb confirm quarantine plans as former stars want horrible 2021 series

I’m a Celebrity fans are eagerly awaiting the return of the hit ITV series which is set to take place next month, and celebrities will soon be isolating ahead of their three-week visit to Gwrych Castle.

The beloved reality show is set to adhere to the latest Covid-19 protocols established by the government, similarly to how it was last year and the broadcaster has recently confirmed some of its plans ahead of the 21st series.

This will include a two-week quarantine at a nearby location in Wales with regular testing issued throughout the series in order to keep the cast and crew safe throughout production, as hinted by an insider earlier this month.

The source revealed to The Sun how the celebrity contestants will isolate alone before they enter the camp with their fellow teammates who will join them on the show.

They said: “All of the celebrities will have to quarantine alone for a fortnight. Once this ends they will enter the camp, which is basically then their bubble for the whole series.”

The insider reassured viewers that testing will be done “regularly in camp and on set” which they believe to be “the best-case scenario” in terms of keeping everyone safe in terms of Covid.

Now, an ITV spokesperson has confirmed the plans surrounding quarantine ahead of this series to NorthWalesLive this week.

The told the news outlet: “Like last year, our celebrities will do a two-week quarantine with regular testing prior to entering the castle, and will then form a bubble for the duration of their time on the show.”

It comes after Vernon Kay asked ITV bosses to make the upcoming series even more brutal than the last as he prepares to tune in for the second instalment of the show at the Welsh castle.

The TV host made it all the way to the final of the show and finished third behind Jordan North and the reigning winner Giovanna Fletcher.

The 47-year-old told fellow cast member Victoria Derbyshire how he hopes producers will make the show “more horrible” for contestants this year.

Joined by the Queen of the castle herself on BBC’s Newscast hosted by broadcast reporter Victoria, Vernon shared his hopes for this year’s show.

He told listeners: “I think they’ll probably upscale some of the trials. I think what we missed [last year] was those big physical trials where you’re swinging from something or swimming.

“It prevented us from going to another outdoor space that wasn’t under the strict Covid protocols that we were.

“But I things those will come back this year. I think it will be more challenging, it will be more gruelling.”
