NORTH Wales looks set to host a group of German celebrities for that country's version of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here.

Several German news sites are today reporting that Gwrych Castle in Abergele will be used instead of the Australian jungle as is already the case with the UK version of the show hosted by Ant and Dec.

The show Ich bin ein Star - Holt mich hier raus, the title of which translates to "I'm a Star...Get Me Out of Here!" is broadcast of channel RTL.

Previous winners include television presenter Sonja Zietlow, radio personality Micky Beisenherz, and writer Jens Oliver Haas.

As with the UK version, celebrities have been sent to the jungle camp in previous years.

But, due to the UK choosing to film at Gwrych due to the coronavirus pandemic, the German show is following suit and the celebs will compete to be crown King or Queen of the Castle.

The German crew will arrive at the start of January next year.

As with the UK version, the celebrity line up has not been confirmed, but German newspapers are tipping Schlager singer Lucas Cordalis to be involved.

After weeks of speculation, ITV confirmed last month that Abergele’s Gwrych Castle will play host to the 20th series of the popular reality show.

Kevin Lygo, director of television at ITV, explained why it was chosen.

He said: “The first aim was to get to Australia but when it became clear we weren’t going to make it, we were scouring the country for suitable locations.

“We found an extraordinary place, a beautiful Walt Disney castle, crumbling, tough and we just thought this looks like the place.

“I think it will be fascinating to see what audiences do and to come up with different challenges and tasks, the team I know are stimulated by this and thrilled about it.”
