The lineup for the upcoming series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! appears to have been leaked, just weeks before the ITV show returns.

A host of stars were spotted at a secret North London photoshoot, sparking rumours that that they will be joining Geordie duo Ant and Dec at Gwrych castle in Wales for the first season shot in Britain.

The Mirror reports that bosses have been tight-lipped as to who would join join the cast.

However, EastEnders Jessica Plummer, Strictly's AJ Pritchard and presenter Victoria Derbyshire were among several stars pictured attending a top secret photo-op in images obtained by The Sun.

The stars were joined by presenter Vernon Kay, tenor Russell Watson as well as paralympian Hollie Arnold, actress Ruthie Henshall and actress Beverley Callard.

According to the publication, the eight stars make up some of the cohort that are expected to head to Wales next month.

It is unclear whether any other contestants may enter the show further down the line.

The publication goes on to reveal that the celebrities arrived at a location in Kensal Green, North London, where they were due to appear in a promotional shoot ahead of the ITV show.

“This year’s collection of celebrity contestants are shaping up to be nothing if not eclectic, with the latest signings,” the source said.

For the first time in the shows 20-year history, the entire series will be filmed in the UK instead of in the Australian jungle.

There have also been lots of safety measures put in place in order to keep the cast and crew safe during the ongoing pandemic.

IAC bosses have been fighting to get the show on air despite a raft of new Covid restrictions in Wales.

Further travel chaos was inflicted when the Welsh government decided to close the borders to tourists earlier this month following an increase in the number of positive Covid-19 cases.

It was then followed up the announcement of a 17 day fire break lockdown from 6pm today.

The fire-break, which will last two weeks and include the half-term holiday, is the tightest in Wales since the UK-wide measures taken during the first-wave.

It means that people most work from home where possible, no gatherings with people you do not live with indoors or outdoors and a ban on all non essential travel.

Despite the numerous headaches an ITV source has confirmed to the Mirror that show will still be going ahead.

"I'm A Celebrity continues to adhere to all relevant guidelines as well as our own strict Covid protocols," said a representative for the channel.
