The usual theme music is being used in the trailers.

Some people were wondering earlier in the thread whether it would be used.

That Welsh accent in the voiceover doesn't sound altogether genuine, but I might be wrong.

You're right. It sounds almost robotic when she says "on ITV".

Also, us Gogs are once again mucked in with the hwntws and their Gavin and Stacey accents. Rolling Eyes (with that said, the Abergele/Rhyl side of North Wales has more of a scouse twang...)

There is speculation that filming could be affected by the potential travel restrictions in Wales:

AFAIK, the potential restrictions would only affect people travelling from Covid hotspots in other parts of the UK, so may not necessarily have much of an effect.

I'm a Celebrity will be classed as work which I think is an exemption anyway so should be OK. Short of a full-on lockdown like March I can't see it getting cancelled (unless there's an outbreak on set). I'm sure the Welsh government are well aware of the potential tourism boost this could provide.

It’s deliberate click bait

There will be another article next week, saying that it’s no longer under threat and now going ahead

This is the third article from The Sun about IAC being under threat. It wasn't true the first time, it's not true now.

I don't for one second believe anyone in the Welsh Government would try to disrupt such a great opportunity for Wales.

The Welsh Government has already said people will be able to come into Wales for work purposes so IAC along with other productions which are based in Wales like Casualty are likely to be exempt from this travel ban.

Absolutely - it's one of the biggest opportunities for North Wales I can remember. I also presume hotels and accomodation has been block booked so even if other areas of hospitality closed they should be OK. I know people can travel for work but I'm not sure how easy it has been in stricter lockdown conditions to actually stay in hotels etc. for work purposes.


I wonder too how much of the editing will be done in North Wales or whether most will be done remotely from London (and I guess peoples homes). Indeed not sure when in Australia whether the show is all put together down in Australia or whether they use people back in the UK to work on the evenings show whilst they sleep down under.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

I wouldn't be surprised if ITV are using caravan parks and campsites near Gwrych Castle for the cast and crew.

It'll all be done on site (as it is in normal times) with editors working through the night. It's too tight turnaround to be done from home and they have to have access to hundreds hours worth of footage from many cameras which I think would be impossible to have access to off site.
