I'm A Celebrity bosses have been hit with another setback - power cuts in the local area.

The producers of the show have had a tough few days, having to pull the show off air last night and tonight for the first time in its two decade history, and they have been dealt another blow.

Storm Arwen has caused power outages in nearby Abergele, North Wales, leading to fears that the ITV show may not make a return to our screens on Monday night as originally hoped.

The celebrities have also been removed from the castle and put back into solo quarantine amid the bad weather conditions.

It is not believed that the power cuts have directly affected the castle itself but it raises questions on whether more technical issues might force the show off air for the rest of the series.

Power has since been returned to some areas in Abergele, North Wales Live has reported, but there are still a number of houses and businesses in the local area that do not have any power.

It is the latest headache for the show's bosses, after they were forced to pull the celebs from the castle yesterday.

"Whilst we get the production base back up and running after suffering technical issues due to the storm, we have removed the celebrities from the castle," ITV said in a statement.

The celebrities have been taken back to individual quarantine areas like they did before the show to ensure the set remains Covid secure. The conditions will remain the same as they did before they entered the castle.

They will be then taken back to the castle when it is safe to do so.

Saturday and Sunday night's show was cancelled due to the poor weather, with highlight shows being broadcasted instead.

They said: "Owing to technical difficulties caused by extreme weather conditions in the area, there will be no new episodes of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! this weekend (Saturday and Sunday).

"I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! will be replaced tonight and tomorrow night in the ITV schedules by compilation shows (voiced by Ant & Dec) featuring best moments from previous series."

Friday's show was pre-recorded due to the poor weather, with hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly recording their parts of the show earlier in the day rather than doing it live as usual.
