Director of Entertainment at ITV Studios, Richard Cowles, said the broadcaster "pulled out all the stops to try and make the series happen in Australia".

"Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and despite us looking at many different contingencies, it became apparent that it just wasn't possible."

Since the second series in 2003, I'm A Celebrity has taken place in New South Wales, inside Murwillumbah's Springbrook National Park.

ITV, Britain's biggest commercial free-to-air broadcaster, has been severely hit by the pandemic, cancelling production shows and facing tumbling advertising.
