Report: I’m a Celebrity UK set to get clearance to film in Australia

Ant & Dec hosted series look set to have more options open for their next UK series.

Filming of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here UK will get the tick to film their next season in Australia if they are keen to return down under.

The Sun reports on a ‘border force’ source claiming, “Everyone is delighted with this news. All the signs are now pointing towards a return to the jungle.

“As great as a year in the (2020 Wales) castle was, the show is made by its surroundings and the glitz and glamour of the jungle.

“ITV have assurances from Australian border control bosses that even if a wider travel ban is still in place for tourists, they’ll get the paperwork and clearance they need to send cast and crew to Oz. It’s a big moment.”

Filming for the UK series takes place at the site near Murwillumbah, NSW, where the Australian series last filmed during November / December. It is also used by the German series which could make things a tad tight if all three shows film locally and there is also a matter of available crews.

10 is unlikely to be looking at South Africa for 2022 given the current situation and variants.

Filming in Australia is in a boom at the moment with multiple international productions shooting across the country and both state and federal Location Incentives in play.

ITV, which is also announced a Greek edition filming at a castle in Poland, is yet to confirm their plans for the British edition.

A spokesman said: “No final decision has yet been made regarding the location for the new series.”

  1. I really wonder if all cast and crew will be allowed entry straight into Australia without the 14 day quarantine period, if they are all fully vaccinated and all present negative COVID tests before departing…

    1. More of an issue for the crew – for the contestants a period in sequester prior to joining the show is pretty much the norm, though this would be two weeks rather than one.
