    Recap: Where do they stay in Australia?

    I'm A Celebrity producers and crew usually stay in Coolangatta, Queensland.

    They hole up in the five-star Palazzo Versace hotel in Australia.

    The luxe hotel boasts “200 light-filled bedrooms and suites, along with 72 condominiums, appointed with bespoke Versace Home furnishings and private ‘Juliet’ balconies welcoming the Gold Coast sunshine to pour in.

    "Every room and suite is an oasis of pure indulgence, true glamour, ultimate relaxation and the very best that is possible in life.”

    Temperatures in Australia this time of year are around 30C (86F).

    But in North Wales it is expected to be just 11C (52F) – so Ant and Dec will be happy to leave the castle for their toastie hotel rooms.

    Where the I'm A Celeb crew are staying

    The I'm A Celeb crew will be staying at the Golden Sands Holiday Park in Rhyl, North Wales, a convenient 15 minutes from Gwrych Castle where the celebs are based.

    The caravan park usually offers Sun readers holidays for £9.50. 

    A source told The Sun: “Thankfully, Golden Sands is more than equipped to host the giant crew, and is award-winning and really popular for holidaymakers.

    "They might not get a tan though.”

    Where are Ant and Dec staying in Wales?

    Hosts Ant and Dec were rumoured to be staying at Bodysgallen Hall near Llandudno.

    Bodysgallen is a luxury country house hotel set on Pydew Mountain.

    It boasts a three AA Rosette restaurant and a luxurious spa.

    As well as the hotel, the grounds have 16 cottage suites which have "added privacy" and their own separate garden – so the presenter duo may be making the most of these areas.

    Importantly, the hotel is located 12 miles from Gwrych Castle – making it a quick drive to set.

    However, the Telegraph reported that Ant has been spotted walking his dogs along the beach at Penmaenmawr.

    Nothing that scares David Ginola

    Model Maëva Denat, 37, said: “There is almost nothing that scares David, not even death. He is a force of nature and will go outside bare-chested when it is snowing.

    “He doesn’t feel the cold and he loves the wind and rain. He is incredibly strong and says I make him feel young again.

    “We love playing backgammon, but David always wins. You can’t play a game with him because he has to win and he always wins. 

    “He is not afraid of insects or bugs. I scream if I see a spider and he will jokingly scream at me and ask, ‘Why are you screaming like that?’ The only thing he is afraid of is sharks but he wants to dive with them to conquer his fear."

    David had a cardiac arrest in 2016

    David had a cardiac arrest after scoring in a charity football game in the French town of Mandelieu-La Napoule in May 2016.

    He was dead for nine minutes and only survived because friend Frederic Mendy performed CPR. An air ambulance took him to a hospital in Monaco, where he underwent a quadruple bypass.

    Doctors said the CPR kept oxygen pumping to his head so he did not suffer brain damage.

    David discovered he had a heart condition passed on by his mother Mireille, who died from a heart attack aged 74 in 2005.

    He has gone on to campaign for CPR to be taught at schools.

    It is understood all the celebs joining had a medical and a defibrillator is on standby at Gwrych Castle. 

    'I’m scared David Ginola will have another heart attack & not see our girl grow up'

    Model Maëva Denat, 37, says he has little fear of dying and eats “like a Viking” — despite being clinically dead for nine minutes after collapsing in 2016.

    Ahead of the ex-Spurs and Newcastle ace’s appearance on the ITV show, she told The Sun on Sunday: “My biggest fear is he goes away and then something happens. I dread the thought of him not coming home.”

    She also told how he has battled anxiety and was “a little depressed” after his cardiac arrest.

    Speaking from their home in the South of France, Maëva said: “David’s biggest fear is he won’t live to see our daughter ever grow up and I feel the same way. It feels like there is a huge void in my life when he goes away. We miss each other so much.

    “I am always worried about David’s health and what if something happens like before?

    “I push him to take care of himself but it is a constant battle.

    “David loves to cook and to eat and can eat three plates of food when you have just one. Like most French people, he likes to drink wine and smoke, but I’ve been trying to get him to stop.”

      Emmerdale’s Danny Miller on fatherhood

      The actor became a first time dad last month when fiancée Steph gave birth to their son Albert.

      He said: “Steph and I had a long discussion about me taking part in I’m A Celebrity.

      “We were due to start IVF earlier this year and that would have meant the baby would have been due next March, so it wouldn’t have mattered.

      I’m A Celeb’s funniest moments (Continued…)

      5) Stacey Solomon was assigned a top secret mission and needed to attract the attention of comedian Dom Joly without any of their campmates noticing in 2010.

      Unfortunately, Dom was a little slow on the uptake, so Stacey resorted to chucking a stone. It ended up hitting him square in the face.

      6) When reality show diva Gemma Collins announced in 2014: “I think I’ve got malaria,” it sparked a hysterical 72 hours before she quit — and launched a host of viral memes.

      7) American David Gest became a reality TV legend in 2006 thanks to his dry sense of humour and tall tales — the most infamous being his uniquely named maid, Vaginica Seaman.

      8) Peter Andre going on about how much he loved singing, in 2004, before cutting to an unimpressed Johnny Rotten, was TV gold. His subsequent single, Insania, was anything but.

      I’m A Celeb’s funniest moments

      MORE than eight million viewers are expected to tune into next Sunday’s opening episode of I’m A Celeb. . .

      They will be hoping to see more of the TV gold that has tickled the nation over the 19 years the series has been running.

      To celebrate the return, we take a look at some of the funniest moments.

      1) EastEnders actor Dean Gaffney thought he was on his way into the camp to meet his fellow celebrities in 2006.

      What he didn’t know was he was going straight into a live trial — a Bush Spa with gunk plus thousands of creepy crawlies. His hysterics had Ant and Dec in stitches.

      2) As soon as nutritionist Gillian McKeith arrived in camp in 2010 she whined about a host of phobias — and sucked on a gas mask.

      Then when she was voted to perform a live trial she stunned viewers and crew alike by collapsing and lying “out cold” on her back.

      3) Nobody who saw former royal lackey Paul Burrell whimper ing and gibbering his way through an excruciating Hell Hole trial in 2004 will ever forget it.

      Ant and Dec had to look away because they were laughing so hard.

      4) Katie Price and Kim Woodburn went head to head on the eating and drinking Bushtucker Trial Vile Vending in 2009.

      While Katie gagged on an animal testicle, Kim made such a noise trying to force down a fish eye that she would have been put down if she were a dog.

      I’m A Celebrity viewers told to boycott show

      I’M A Celebrity viewers have been urged to boycott the show because of its “tired, tacky and cruel” Bushtucker trials.

      More than eight million fans are expected to tune into next Sunday’s opening episode – but Peta is encouraging people not to bother. 

      The animal rights charity has long complained against the use of animals in the show – claiming that the use of live rats, snakes, spiders cockroaches and mealworms are used for “cheap laughs”.

      Peta UK’s media and communications manager, Jennifer White, told the Metro that ITV “must change the structure of the show" if they want to stay relevant. 

      “Every season of this show brings more cruelty to our screens,” she exclaimed.

      “Animals are terrified and abused and killed for these challenges and it’s all for a cheap laugh.

      “We encourage everyone to boycott watching this year’s show.”

      Phillip Schofield on why he’d NEVER do I’m A Celebrity

      PHILLIP Schofield has revealed the bizarre reason he'd never do I'm A Celebrity.

      He said: "Well, I've always said I'm A Celeb is the only one I would do.

      "But I wouldn't do it… I don't think. But I couldn't do it because they eat out of those metal cans with metal spoons, and I've got goosebumps even thinking about it.

      "But scraping the spoon on the tin can, I couldn't do it, I'd starve to death!"

      I’m A Celebrity leaves Gwrych Castle locals furious

      I’M A Celebrity bosses have ringed the castle with steel fences, closed off footpaths and even a local golf course to keep out prying eyes – and locals aren’t happy.

      The ancient Welsh pile – which will be home to the ITV series for the second year running – is ringed and criss-crossed with trails used by ramblers and dog walkers.

      Despite the fact that most are unofficial routes, estate chiefs have allowed locals to use them for years.

      Yet now The Sun Online can exclusively reveal I'm A Celebrity bosses are said to have erected large metal panel fences eight feet high around the perimeter of the North Wales castle.

      Earlier this year, local people took the issue before council chiefs over whether they had the right to ramble across the estate.

      Susanna Reid predicts trouble ahead for Richard Madeley 

      SUSANNA Reid predicted trouble ahead for Richard Madeley after seeing part of his I’m A Celebrity uniform on Good Morning Britain today.

      Richard appeared in a pre-recorded video from isolation in Wales after The Sun revealed he had signed up to the ITV show.

      The presenter, 65, said he had been isolating for 10 days in a cottage near the castle ruins and he also showed off his new boots.

      He said: “I’ve been in quarantine for about 10 days now, and if any of you have been in quarantine my god it’s boring, I mean I’d welcome any trial just for something to do.

      “It’s very pretty though, I’m on a Welsh farm, nice views and all the rest of it but I just want to get started.”

      Spinning the camera around, he added: “They’ve given us some of the costume that we’ve got to wear in the castle.

      “Why we have to wear jungle boots in the castle I can’t guess, unless it’s to keep the rats out.”

      After seeing the clip Susanna, 50, said: “Huge good luck to you Richard! Madeley for the win!”

      Saturday’s star favourite to win IAC 2021

      Saturdays star Frankie Bridge has been named as the early favourite to win I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

      Bookmakers Betfair and Ladbrokes are offering odds of 4/1 on the pop singer, who was also a member of S Club 8, being crowned Queen of the Castle.

      The 32-year-old is taking part after her husband, former footballer Wayne, competed on the show in Australia in 2016.

      It comes after ITV unveiled the names of the 10 famous faces heading to Gwrych Castle near Abergele in North Wales after signing up for the show.

      Frankie Bridge: ‘I’m A Celebrity’s stomach-churning eating tasks are my idea of HELL’

      I'M A Celebrity star Frankie Bridge has told how the show trials are her "idea of hell" and she is "scared of most things" – but that's exactly why she signed up.

      The Saturdays popstar, 32, made her confession ahead of her entry into Wales' spooky Gwrych Castle this weekend.

      Frankie said: "I think people will be surprised to see me doing I’m A Celebrity and I am scared of most things, but I really want to push myself.

      “I’m scared of rats, I am a fussy eater and I have a bit of a phobia of ketchup, so a pint of penis terrifies me! Any of the eating challenges will be my idea of hell.

      "I also hate spiders in my own home, being trapped in small spaces is a big thing for me and pretty much all of that is likely to happen which makes me go, ‘Why the hell are you doing it?’

      "And so that is exactly why I am doing it!”

      Inside the I’m A Celebrity quarantine 

      I'M A Celebrity star DJ Locksmith has revealed a glimpse of his quarantine accommodation ahead of the show launch next week.

      He has been posting on social media since heading into isolation on Saturday to ensure he is Covid-free when he enters Gwrych Castle on November 21st.

      DJ Locksmith, 34, from the drum and bass group Rudimental is a reserve celeb, there to replace anyone who drops out.

      He appeared to confirm he'd signed up when a fan asked him on Instagram: "Are you in isolation for I'm A Celebrity?"

      The producer wrote back on a video of him dancing in a cowboy hat – in a nod to the show's Australian roots: "No, just finding myself."

      Contestants are required to quarantine for two weeks ahead of the series, which has moved to Wales from the Australian jungle because of Covid.

      And their quarantine digs are far more luxurious than the grim castle camp.
