However, viewers will have to wait until tonight to find out how they fair after that catastrophe.

Last week, The Sun revealed that fans would still get to enjoy the show’s ­legendary Celebrity Cyclone challenge this year, despite the move to North Wales.

Viewers had been concerned their favourite part of the series would not make it.

The task sees the famous faces don superhero-style capes and try to retrieve stars from a slippery hill as they’re blasted with wind, water ­cannons, foam and balls.

It has been a regular ­feature since series six in 2006 when Myleene Klass, 42, Jason Donovan, 52, and Matt Willis, 37, christened it.

The Cyclone has provided I’m A Celebrity viewers with some of the show’s most hilarious moments – with even Holly Willoughby taking on the Cyclone in 2018 when she covered for host Ant McPartlin.

A TV insider said: “This often took place in the heat of the Australian jungle which meant it could easily be staged outside where it needs huge amounts of space.

“That left fans wondering if building something similar in Gwrych Castle in Wales might be impossible, because of the freezing temperatures and the limited room inside the building and its grounds.

“But it seems producers, who are determined to ensure the British equivalent is just as fun as the one Down under, have found a way to make it happen.”


I’m A Celebrity is coming to a close after nearly three weeks on with Vernon, Giovanna, Shane and Jordan vying to become the first king or queen of the castle.

Last night, viewers watched as AJ Pritchard and Sir Mo Farah became the seventh and eighth contestants eliminated from camp.

The pair were evicted from the castle (December 2), following the departures of Russell Watson and Jessica Plummer on Tuesday.
