I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here is expected to return to Channel 10 next year.

On Saturday, The Daily Telegraph claimed that the reality show ‘will be back in the network’s schedule’ for 2021, ahead of the network’s Upfronts event next week.

It seems Channel 10 will be filming at a local site as travelling to South Africa‘s Kruger National Park, where they have filmed every season, is not possible due to the COVID pandemic.

According to the newspaper, the Australian production of I’m A Celebrity will take over the set of the UK version of the show. 

The campsite is located in Murwillumbah, in north-eastern New South Wales – just north of Byron Bay – and less than an hour from the Gold Coast. 

It comes as producers of the UK version were forced to rethink filming Down Under, also because of the pandemic.

The publication also reported that Dancing With The Stars Australia judge Sharna Burgess is expected to be one of the first celebrities cast on I’m A Celebrity.

The Daily Telegraph suggested also that the dancing show, which has run for only two seasons, is expected to be axed after fellow judge Tristan McManus’ recent move to hosting Studio 10.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10 for comment.

It comes after TV Tonight reported that the hit reality series will be filmed in November and December.

According to publication, the usually live series will now be prerecorded with a live finale filmed in January to ensure that viewers can still pick the winner.

The publication reports that the changes will keep the cast and crew safe, and ensure that there are episodes ready to go should filming be impacted by the virus.

Producing the show in Australia will also pose a problem with filming it live due to the change in time zones, meaning that it will need to be pre-recorded.

Channel 10’s Head of Entertainment Stephen Tate told MediaWeek: ‘The fact that we won’t have a time difference that Africa gave us will mean the show will need to be prerecorded.’
