I'm a Celebrity Get me Out of Here - Gwrych Castle

This year ITV have chosen Gwrych Castle in North Wales as the jungle venue for the show 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here' hosted by Ant & Dec who will announce the contestants on Sunday 8th November with the main programme due to start on 15th November 2020.

The production crew are set to "rough it" in a holiday park called "Golden Sands" which last year was evacuated on a windy winters day with exceptionally high tides, lets hope they dont experience too much "Golden Rain!"

It's more likely that Ant & Dec might find rather more luxury at Bodysgallen Hotel, a 5 star National Trust property in nearby Llandudno (which is our usual hotel for our luxury clients on our multi-day UK tours)

Only 1 hours' drive from Liverpool we took some clients on a private guided tour of North Wales as we visited LLandullas and Abergele to find out what might be in store for the contestants!
