I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here! was canceled again on Monday as bosses repaired the massive damage inflicted by Storm Arwen.

The stars have been self-isolating after leaving Gwrych Castle over the weekend, with live shows being replaced with pre-recorded shows on Saturdays and Sundays.

It has now been reported that Monday’s live show has also been glitched but ITV has confirmed I Am A Celebrity will be back on Tuesday, 11/30 with a brand new show led by Ant and Dec.

Instead, a repeat of Freddie and Jamie’s DNA Journey, which follows Freddie Flintoff and Jamie Redknapp as they explore their family history, will air at 9 p.m. Monday.

ITV previously said in a statement: ‘Due to technical difficulties caused by extreme weather conditions in this area, there won’t be any new episodes of I’m a Celebrity… Get me out of here! This weekend (Saturday and Sunday).

The show’s production facility took heavy damage from Storm Arwen, with tents destroyed, meaning all but essential staff had to leave.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby confirmed news of Monday’s episode being canceled along with former campmate Matthew Wright on This Morning.

Phillip said: ‘It has been announced that there will be no live performance of I’m a Celebrity tonight.’

Matthew later added: “I’m not surprised that today’s show is cancelled. I’m wondering if we’ll see an episode on Tuesday. ‘

It comes after the host of Ant and Dec gave viewers a Update on the future of the show – and not much good news to share with fans.

Speaking to fans from inside Ant’s house, the couple said together: ‘Hello and welcome to us celebs and get us in there!’

“I have an update,” Dec continued. ‘The site was pretty badly damaged in the storm and they’re there, working around the clock trying to get it back up and running and up to speed so we can get back on the plane as quickly as possible.

The show got off to a rough start after campmate Richard Madeley, 65, was forced to leave after falling ill in the early hours of Thursday morning.

He had to go to the hospital for a checkup and this meant that he had burst his Covid bubble and could not return to the camp.

It is not yet known when the celebrities will be able to return to the camp, but they will be moved back to the castle once it is deemed safe.
