Dropping out

So much so that one popular star has sent I’m A Celeb bosses into chaos by pulling out of the show. A source told The Sun:

One popular star dropped out immediately. Bosses are still in talks with loads of top celebs about taking part and feel confident this won't put people off given last year's success.

One star dropping out of the show may not put a damper on this season, but the source also divulged that other celebrities are not looking forward to the relocation. The source added:

But for some of the talent, roughing it for weeks in wet and cold Wales isn’t going to be as much fun as doing that in the Australian jungle.

Fortunately, none of the other stars who have signed the contract have taken back their decision so far but producers are hoping to bag another major celebrity in time for filming.


The last-minute shift to Gwrych Castle in Wales has certainly thrown things off course but given the last season’s immense success, sources have reassured fans that I’m A Celeb2021 will be just as exciting. Insiders revealed to MailOnline:

It doesn't mean the series will be below par as the last series was the second most popular in show series and that was in Wales. Bosses are working hard to get things ready for the launch following Australia's status change.
