The body of a male mountain biker has been found in the woods near the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! castle in North Wales.

Police found the man's body just yards from the Gwrych Castle on Saturday morning (November 28).

The man is believed to have riding a mountain bike in the woodland area surrounding the castle, where this year's I'm A Celebrity contestants are still filming the current series.

Officers say there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the individual's death. North Wales police have now handed the matter over to the North Wales coroner.

"The body of a man, who we understand had been on a mountain bike in woods off the Abergele Road, was discovered.

"He was pronounced dead at the scene. There are no suspicious circumstances and the coroner has been informed."
