Continued uncertainty over COVID restrictions and Australia’s strict border policies are said to be behind the decision, after producers previously hoped to take the show back to Oz this year.

According to a source quoted in TheMirror:

The logistics involved in trying to get the entire production team plus celebrities and presenters and all the families to the other side of the world amid the ongoing Covid travel restrictions has just proved too difficult this year. The show will be in Wales again and it will be brilliant, just like last year.

The source promised that the series would be ‘a hoot’ and ‘bigger and better’ than last year, as producers have more time to prepare for the alternative location. They said:

We know the castle and what we are working with so we can really transform it ahead of the arrival of the celebrities.
