Anthony McPartlin has spoken about the next series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!, saying he would be very happy for it to return to Wales.
The ITV show was filmed in the UK for the first time last year, with the coronavirus pandemic forcing it to relocate from Australia to Gwrych Castle in Wales.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Ant said that although he would be happy to stay in Wales for a second year, he would miss the Australian weather.
‘If during coronavirus we have to stay put and do it in Wales again, I’d be very happy,’ said Ant, who hosts alongside Declan Donnelly.
Ant went on to talk about the welcome they’d received in Wales in 2020, saying: ‘There were cardboard cutouts of me and Dec in the butcher’s, and the local school did a tribute.’
We’d happily go back there. We’d miss the sunshine, mind,’ he said.

Dec added: ‘The people in Wales were lovely. They made us feel very welcome.
‘I had a lovely time. I will miss the sunshine, but I will not miss the jetlag of coming back from Australia. I’d love to go back to Oz. But if we had to go back to Wales, I wouldn’t be disappointed.’
I’m A Celebrity 2020 was won by Giovanna Fletcher, with the likes of Vernon Kay, Victoria Derbyshire, Jordan North, Sir Mo Farah and Shane Richie also taking part.
Meanwhile, Ant also discussed his recent engagement to Anne-Marie Corbett, saying: ‘It was a lovely way to end the year.
‘I’m a romantic at heart. You know, there were flowers, and afternoon tea in front of the Christmas tree.’
