British reality show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here could remain in its new Welsh setting, according to producers.
The series has traditionally been filmed in northern NSW, but shifted to a castle location in North Wales this year due to travel restrictions.
The show has remained a ratings hit with 12 million UK viewers tuning into the series premiere.
Showrunner Richard Cowles said: “Australia has been I’m A Celebrity’s natural home and the Welsh version was born out of necessity rather than choice, but we’ve learned a lot and so maybe there is a UK incarnation of the show.
“We will look at what being in Wales means for the format going forward. Is it something we would want to do again, or do we want to return to Australia?”
A poll of more than 2,000 fans found that almost two-thirds actually prefer the castle setting.
It raises further questions about whether 10 might remain in NSW and shun Africa in the future? 10 saves on travel but labor costs are probably higher at home.
