Ant added: “If it has to be Wales for another series, we will do it in Wales, but we want to go back to Australia.
“Australia is the spiritual home of I’m A Celebrity and where it’s been for 20 years, and four weeks there in the sun in October and November is great! We love it and we want to go back.”
