I'm a Celebrity won't be airing new programmes for the rest of the weekend due to technical difficulties caused by the extreme weather conditions in the area.

The show notified fans via their social media accounts that no new episodes of the programme would be recorded for their usual Saturday and Sunday night slot.

Instead of the usual live programme, the ITV schedule will be filled by compilation shows featuring some of the best moments from previous series.

The compilation shows will be voiced by presenters Ant and Dec.

The weekend's cancellations come after ITV bosses decided not to air live on Friday night as Storm Arwen hit Gwrych Castle.

The Met Office issued a rare red warning for wind from 3pm on Friday to 2am on Saturday as the first winter storm battered the country with gusts of wind as high as 90mph.

Ant and Dec pre-recorded their segments prior to the show's start amid concerns for safety.

I'm A Celebrity put in several precautionary measures including securing the campmates inside the castle and creating a contingency plan to cover all weather scenarios.

Fans of the show have expressed their disappointment that there will be no live episodes over the weekend — but said it was for the best to keep the stars safe.

Rebecca commented on the show's Twitter page: "While it’s disappointing, I can understand I also hope that the celebs are being looked after I don’t imagine this is good weather for them."

Ryan said: "I don't mind this it's the best to keep everyone safe. I hope the show returns on Monday night stay safe everyone!!! I hope the celebs are taken care of."

The show has had a difficult start to their 21st series, with Richard Madeley forced to exit early after he was taken to hospital.

It was also recently confirmed an intruder was removed from the set earlier this week.

I'm a Celebrity's first compilation show will air at 9pm tonight on ITV.
