Producers are planning to call on the services of some 'familiar faces' from previous series to feature in one-off bushtucker trials to commemorate the 20th series of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. 

Former contestants are being sought for the tough challenges on the show which has moved all the way from Australia to Gwrych Castle in North Wales due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Contestants reportedly being mentioned are Stacey Solomon who was crowned Queen of the Jungle in 2010, and 77-year old radio DJ Tony Blackburn who was the first winner in 2002.

Other notable contestants reportedly being considered are Scarlett Moffatt who won the show in 2016 and Phil Tufnell who was King of the Jungle in 2003, the year he retired as a professional cricketer.

It comes as I'm A Celebrity executives have reportedly spent millions to make the 19th-century castle suitable as a filming location.

According to the Daily Mail, It has been an expensive task to transform the Welsh castle into a viable TV set. Electrical and water systems have been installed and other time-consuming safety precautions observed to make it all trouble-free.

The line-up of campmates will be reportedly staying under a waterproof roof for at least part of the series to protect them from the UK climate which is clearly less open to the possibilities of both outdoor fun and outdoor filming than that of Australia.
