I'm A Celebrity will be back on our screens this year, but due to the ongoing pandemic things are a little different. The team can't fly out to Australia with all the quarantine rules, so instead this year's series will take place in the UK.

The setting will be a ruined castle in the welsh countryside, with all the contestants going up against one another to be crowned King or Queen of the castle. Obviously the celebs will be given warmer clothes for camping - but otherwise all the trials and basic diet of rice and beans will be the same. 

With that major change now announced, here's everything else we know about I'm A Celeb 2020, including the air date and contestants. 

When does I'm A Celebrity 2020 start?

I'm A Celebrity typically begins in mid-November and usually broadcasts on ITV at 9pm. The show then runs for three weeks, with the final episode airing in early December.

Though the official start date has not yet been confirmed, we'd put money on the first episode airing on Sunday 15 November 2020, based on previous premiere dates. Once we have a firmer idea, we'll update this article. 

I'm A Celebrity filming location

This year's series will be filmed in Gwrych Castle in Abergele, North Wales. The venue was built in the early 1800's, and is currently undergoing maintenance work to unsure its fit and ready to be filmed in when the series kicks off later on this year. 

Director of Entertainment at ITV Studios, Richard Cowles discussed more about the venue for this year, "The castle sits in an amazing and atmospheric setting on a hillside overlooking the Irish Sea.

"While there will be plenty of changes required as we move from New South Wales in Australia to North Wales in the UK, we are really excited to see how we can adapt the format and make the castle our new home for a very special 20th series of I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! this autumn."

Who will host I'm A Celebrity 2020?

The dynamic duo Ant and Dec will be returning as the usual hosts, presenting live from the ruined castle every evening.

Which celebrities will be on I'm A Celebrity 2020?

The Radio Times has predicted the possibility of television presenter Vernon Kay being offered money to appear on the show, as well as Love Island star Tommy Fury, RuPaul's Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne and Carole Baskin, the controversial wildlife conservationist from Netflix's Tiger King.

How to watch I'm A Celebrity online

I'm A Celebrity will be broadcast on ITV, so you'll be able to catch up on PC, laptop, phone or tablet via the ITV Hub, available in a web browser or through free apps for Android and iPhone.

If you’re outside the UK you can watch ITV Hub using a VPN. Using a VPN (virtual private network) changes your IP address, allowing you to browse the internet as if you're in another country. We personally recommend using NordVPN, but there are other options out there. Find out more on the process in our guide to watching the ITV Hub abroad

I'm A Celebrity: Extra Camp 

Die-hard fans of I'm A Celeb will have been tuning into the post-show on ITV2, presented by Emily Atack, Adam Thomas and Joel Dommett. Unfortunately, this has now been axed altogether. Presenter Joel claimed on Instagram that this was for cost-saving reasons, and that the executives decided that the later slot can be filled with something more suitable.

Extra Camp previously aired unseen footage from the show, invited on celebrity guests and held interviews with members on the camp. Perhaps this is something that will be moved to the show's social channels, or into a podcast. 

But there is still something additional to look forward to. ITV has confirmed that to celebrate 19 years of the show, the channel will be airing a one-off documentary called I’m A Celebrity: A Jungle Story. This will showcase all the very best moments of the show’s history.
