Earlier this week ITV confirmed that I'm A Celeb 2020 will take place after fears it could be axed due to Covid-19.

Reports had previously revealed how show bosses had considered hosting the show in Scotland to avoid any potential travel ban.

Instead it will now take place in Australia as usual though campmates will have to self isolate for weeks before the show kicks off.
