I'm A Celebrity 2021 is "in chaos" as a huge star quits the lineup due to producers making the last-minute decision to return back to Wales instead of Australia.
The TV camp in Oz was cancelled last minute because it had proved to be "too tricky" to film there with the ongoing Coronavirus regulations.
Plans for this year's series of I'm A Celebrity are still up in the air after a major star has reportedly quit after producers were urged to move the location to Wales.
The series airs in November and will return to Gwrych Castle, which due to Covid restrictions making Oz impossible to film from became the show's new temporary home last year.
But the decision to bring things back to the British countryside has proved to be too much for one cast member, who is believed to have pulled out.
A source told The Sun: “One popular star dropped out immediately.
“Bosses are still in talks with loads of top celebs about taking part and feel confident this won’t put people off given last year’s success."
They also added that some celebs won't find "roughing it" in wet Wales as fun as the Australian jungle.
The insider continued: “Luckily for bosses, the ones who have signed contracts are all still on board. And bosses have still got plenty of time to pull out all the stops when it comes to booking major talent.”
This also comes after a source confirmed to the Mirror that the popular ITV reality show would be returning to the UK this year.
The source told the publication: “The logistics involved in trying to get the entire production team plus celebrities and presenters and all the families to the other side of the world amid the ongoing Covid travel restrictions has just proved too difficult this year.
“The show will be in Wales again and it will be brilliant, just like last year. There is a lot of humour involved in making I'm a Celebrity from a spooky castle at a dark, damp time of year on the Welsh coast. It will be a hoot.”
"We took this decision in the last few hours and it is not something we do lightly as there are lots of people involved."
