Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly are going to be “tee-ed off” as they can’t play golf during filming breaks on I’m A Celebrity.

The Geordie duo always enjoyed a relaxing round on the greens when they fronted the ITV jungle show out in Australia.

And they thought they had struck gold when the series was moved to Wales this year due to COVID travel restrictions.

The haunted Gwrych Castle - where the show will be filmed next month - is right next to Abergele Golf Club which boasts an 18 hole course with stunning views.

Ant and Dec won't be able to play golf this year at Gwrych Castle

However the TV hosts have been dealt a double blow.

The golf course has been shut down due to the current “coronavirus firebreak” in Wales.

And when it does plan to re-open, only card-carrying members will be allowed to play.

The series has moved from Australia to Wales for 2020

The club has posted a message on its web site stating: “Abergele Golf Club will be temporarily closed to all visitors. Members will still be able to play as usual.”

Dec has said about their golf playing during I’m A Celebrity in the past: “Any day in the diary we see is free, there’s only one thing on our minds.

“We just look at each other and don’t have to say anything. If we can get 18 in, brilliant.”

Celebrities tipped to move into the haunted castle include Olympian Mo Farah, TV presenter Vernon Kay, Corrie’s Beverley Callard, EastEnders star Jessica Plummer and singer Russell Watson.

I'm A Celeb is set to return at the end of this year on ITV.
