I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! stars have been moved from Gwyrch Castle as Storm Arwen makes its way through the UK.

The ITV production team have confirmed that they had sustained a number of technical issues due to the adverse weather conditions and therefore opted to remove the campmates.

A spokesperson for the broadcasting giant said: "Whilst we get the production base back up and running after suffering technical issues due to the storm, we have removed the celebrities from the castle."

To avoid breaking Covid rules, all stars of the show have individually returned to quarantine – with conditions remaining the same for celebrities before appearing on the programme.

It was also noted that the cast will return to camp once the set has been "safely re-established".

The news follows the announcement that Saturday and Sunday's episodes had been cancelled due technical difficulties caused by extreme weather.

Instead of the usual live show, a highlights compilation programme would air on ITV over the weekend that would be voiced by hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.

A statement from ITV was released on Saturday 27 November which read: "Owing to technical difficulties caused by extreme weather conditions in the area, there will be no new episodes of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! this weekend (Saturday and Sunday).

"I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! will be replaced tonight and tomorrow night in the ITV schedules by compilation shows (voiced by Ant & Dec) featuring best moments from previous series."

Viewers have already taken to Twitter to share their dissatisfaction that the programme had been cancelled holding the Welsh location responsible.

Many fans of the show begged for ITV to return the show back to the jungle in Australia.

One person wrote: "Just do us a favour, scrap this years series and put the back catalogue on the hub for us to stream @imacelebrity #ImACeleb."

Another penned: "I MISS AUSTRALIA #ImACeleb."

A third said: "Well this legends show is just making us miss the jungle! #ImACeleb."

"#ImACeleb is 1000 better when it's in Auz S**t on a stick in Wales," added a fourth.

While a fifth online user pointed out: "All this episode is doing is highlighting how crap the Wales series are #ImACeleb."

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is due to return to its normal schedule of 9pm on Monday 29 November on ITV.
