Ant and Dec have been offered 'lifelong membership' at a local golf club ahead of I'm a Celebrity 2020.

North Wales Live understands that they've been offered honorary membership at Abergele Golf Club.

The presenters will be working very close to the course - which lies next to Gwrych Castle in Conwy - from next month when the 2020 series of I'm a Celebrity starts filming in North Wales.

The golf club in Abergele is currently closed due to the ongoing firebreak lockdown which is in place across Wales.

This is set to be lifted on November 9 when affected businesses are expected to be able to reopen again.

Abergele Golf Club had previously announced that it would "temporarily close" after this date though.

It revealed earlier this month that its 18-hole course will be unavailable from November 5 to December 5.

This is likely to encompass the three week ITV production, which is expected to begin on November 15.

Members will still be able to play as usual during this period though, with the closure only affecting visitors who don't hold a membership for the golf course.

The news had led to concern that keen golfers Ant and Dec wouldn't be able to play at the site.

The Daily Star said that coronavirus restrictions and the temporary closure were a "devastating blow" to the club.

Abergele Golf Club has now officially confirmed that the Geordie duo will still be able to take on its course during filming of I'm a Celebrity though - if they accept the invitation to become lifelong members.

The move means Ant and Dec can play, once the club reopens after lockdown, and for years to come.

A spokesperson commented: "We're delighted to offer Ant and Dec honorary membership at Abergele Golf Club, giving them all the benefits of lifelong membership, for 2020 and in future years to come."

They said "everyone in Abergele wants to ensure that the boys have a fantastic experience in North Wales" and that the local community is "all excited" to be the new home of the ITV show.

The spokesperson further reminded of the local welcome and support that the production has received.

This has included a host of shops that have participated in a local window-display competition recently.

They said: "If you walk down the high street, many businesses are showing their support, from Gwalia Butchers and The Veg Shop through to Edwards Opticians and the Pen-y-Bont Inn to name but a few!"

The statement continued: "Given Ant and Dec’s interest in golf, we want to make sure we are doing our bit to give them a warm Welsh welcome, so they have a fantastic experience while they are here!

"Being neighbours with Gwrych Castle, we are so proud of the community we live in and are delighted for everyone here that the castle and Abergele have been chosen for this fantastic programme.

"We cannot wait for Ant and Dec to finally arrive and for the show to start!"
