The new series of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' will begin on 21 November.

Ant and Dec will welcome a new group of stars to Gwyrch Castle in Wales for the latest run of the ITV survival show.

It has been reported that the contestants are all quarantining before they enter the castle.

Celebs tipped to star in the new series include soap icons Adam Woodyatt and Simon Gregson – who feature in 'EastEnders' and 'Coronation Street' respectively.

Richard Madeley and Dame Arlene Phillips are also said to have signed up, with the 78-year-old former 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge set to become the show's oldest contestant.

Maura Higgins and Frankie Bridge are also reportedly set to spend a winter in the castle.

The new series will once again take place in Wales as coronavirus restrictions prevented the show from returning to its traditional location in the Australian jungle.

Meanwhile, contestants and crew members have been warned not to harm the bats flying around the castle as they are a protected species.

Sian Williams – Natural Resources Wales head of operations – said: "In the months ahead of filming 'I'm A Celebrity...' we have been advising ITV in relation to protecting bats as both the notified feature of the adjacent Llanddulas Limestone and Gwrych Castle Wood Site of Special Scientific Interest and as a European protected species."

Last's year series also took place in Gwyrch Castle due to the pandemic and was won by Giovanna Fletcher.
