I’m A Celebrity will not air for a third night.

ITV announced Monday morning that their flagship program was no longer available to air after hurricane Arwen ravaged Gwrych Castle, where it is taped.

Matthew Wright was a contestant in I’m A Celeb. He announced this on This Morning, and only six of these episodes have been aired. Three have been cancelled.

They had earlier claimed that their bosses were still working around the clock to make the show run, despite Richard Madeley and Storm Arwen leaving. 

Matthew, who appeared on This Morning With Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on Monday morning, confirmed that the show was cancelled. He explained that the staff worked in a tent and watched the footage from the previous day. They then had to quickly edit and watch the video to make the episode air.

Due to the severe weather, they were unable work in this temporary structure.  Matthew described the surrounding castle’s surroundings as “like Glastonbury”. 

It has had a string of disasters. Fans have been begging the show to be put on hold until it returns to Australia. However, it appears that it may be delayed further.

MailOnline received an earlier statement from ITV insiders on Monday, stating that the situation is ongoing and they are taking each day in stride and work around-the-clock. The safety of the entire site is our priority. This means that we can get the show back online as quickly and safely as possible.

“We don’t have the ability to say when, but will update you when we do. 

Many fans speculated that the series might be cancelled. One asked on Twitter, “If the show goes back on-air will they continue the show longer to make up for the lost days?” It’s barely on 21 days as it is and we are a celeb down and lost 2-3 days already. This year, show feels futile.

Another joked that the show could have been saved by a quick change in format. This is a great opportunity to get the stars in a home and turn this #ImACeleb into Big Brother. Reintroduce #BBUK

The first week of the reality show, now in its second year at Wales’ Gwrych Castle, has already seen the departure of hotly-anticipated contestant Richard due to illness, cancelled shows due to extreme weather conditions and stars removed from the castle after Storm Arwen sent a 100ft tree crashing into a wall of the building.

According to The Sun a second 100ft-high tree fell from the sky and was lifted into the castle walls. This led to it landing on the ground near Cledwyn’s Kiosk. 

A source told the publication of the possible delays to the show coming back on air: ‘This is a crushing blow. This storm has caused a complete blindsidement and no one could have predicted the destruction it would bring.

The tent that houses the scanners and the editing suite for TV, as well as our IT equipment, is the most damaged of all our production areas. It is visible from the outside.

We don’t have any idea at the moment what damage has been done to the equipment. 

Over weekend, the production disruption caused by storms prompted two episodes to be cancelled. According to reports, the castle was ‘looking like warzone’ at the moment. 

There was significant damage to the castle grounds where the production crew had set up shop. The scaffolding was ripped away and the marquee’s roof was torn off.

According to The Sun, there is every possibility that the stars of the show could be forced from the castle once more. A 700-mile long Arctic weather front will hit Abergele in North Wales over the next few days.   

Australia? Showing that they were pining for the jungle, hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly posted a video over the weekend: 'Bless you. Sorry we can’t be there but hope you’re enjoying seeing the show in Oz again! D x'

The insider said: ‘The nightmare caused by Storm Arwen is never ending. Bosses are working around the clock to get the show back on air — but with more storms forecast for the coming days, the morale is low.’

The forecast calls for snow Thursday and Friday. Low temperatures will drop to -05C.

Declan Donnelly and Ant McPartlin, the hosts of The Host, posted a clip to Instagram on Sunday night, admitting that show bosses weren’t sure when it would return. 

They said: ‘Hello and welcome to We’re Celebrities… Get Us In There! It’s our desire to be back on TV. Here’s an update. 

Damage: A marquee set up near the castle appeared to have some of  its roof ripped off following Storm Arwen

Dec stated that “the site was quite damaged in the storm.” They’re working round the clock to get it running again and to get us back online as soon as possible. We don’t know when that’s going to be just yet.’

Ant replied, “Fingers crossed. Little update from us, we went on the coldest walk ever today didn’t we? It was freezing cold. It was cold last night. Tonight’s dinner will be around Dec. Is this what you are looking for?

Dec answered with the phrase “Crisps”, Ant responded, “Crisps it’s!”

Dec concluded the video by saying: “We’ll return with more information once we have it.”

The fear of more disruption was made worse by the power outage that struck large areas of Abergele.

According to ITV News, many homes and business in the local area have been hit by the cut after a ‘large bang’ was heard in the area.   

SP Energy spokeswoman said that the storm Arwen caused extensive damage to its network and affected supplies in North Wales as well as Mid Wales. Our engineers are working night and day to restore power to customers.

We have more engineers on the ground that continue to repair and assess the damage done to the network.

“Due the scale of damage to our supplies, we understand that restoration will take more time than normal. But, because we want to make sure all customers are restored as safely and quickly as possible, we’ll do everything we can to complete the process by 6pm Monday 29th November. We regret any inconvenience.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and Australia’s subsequent border restrictions, it is unclear when the show will return to Australia – with the immediate future of this year’s series also up in the air.

Compilation clips aired Saturday, bringing back the good times in Australia. They featured archive footage from Australia’s most memorable moments over the past 19 years with voiceovers from Ant and Dec. 

Some viewers back home were not impressed by the throwback program. They claimed it just showed ‘how better it was in Australia’, and demanded that the network’scrap it’ until the show could be returned to the jungle. 

Stars have been forced to endure freezing 8°C cold temperatures and no protection from the elements after bosses shelled out £1 million to secure use of the site when production was forced to be relocated from Australia due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

The show’s best moments in the rainforest down under made it clear to them how disappointing the performance was.    

Will it go on? The show has been beset by disasters - with fans begging for the show to go on hiatus until it can return to Australia and Ant and Dec admitting they are missing the Australian jungle (pictured Wales' Gwrych Castle)

Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: ‘Slight backfire for ITV with the Legends #imaceleb programme just highlighting how much better it was Australia…’ 

Another added: ‘Watching this makes you realise how p**s poor it is now, just scrap it till it can be done in Australia again.’ 

Another lamented that he missed Australia too much: 

A fourth chimed in: ‘These flashback shows show that the show used to be a lot more brutal than it is now, and it’s also so much better in the jungle!’

Ant and Dec were unable to present Friday’s episode live in its 19-year history. They instead filmed their segments earlier in afternoon, in preparation for the worst. 

In a major blow to the show as one of their top signings, Richard Madeley, who was paid an estimated £200,000 to star in this year’s competition, was taken ill on Thursday hours after participating in a gruelling trial and complaining about the castle’s freezing temperatures.  

This 65-year-old presenter was not able to come back as he had broken the show’s ‘Covid bubble. Ant and Dec were reassured by Richard that he was “fit as a fiddle” and have been issued a ‘clean bill’ of health in their first interview since he left the I’m A Celebrity camp on Friday’s episode.

In a pre-recorded chat the broadcaster told the Geordie duo that ‘if it wasn’t for Covid, he’d still be in the game’ and that ITV were ‘adamant’ he was sent to hospital to be checked over.    

On Friday’s episode Richard joined Ant and Dec for an interview and joked as he mimed removing a thermometer: ‘I’ll just remove the thermometer… yes, still normal.’

The star answered a question about his health and said that he is feeling fine. Covid saved my life. I wouldn’t be able to eat rice and beans again.  

‘I had to leave… it’s a Covid situation. Is it not still biting us bums? It was a very funny turn that I took in the early morning.

Chaos: The I'm A Celebrity campmates have recently been removed from Gwrych Castle as Storm Arwen continues to cause technical difficulties

Chaos: I’m A Celebrity’s I’m A Celebrity groupmates had to be removed from Gwrych Castle because Storm Arwen is causing technical difficulties.

He added: “ITV are so great with duty of care. They were firm. They were insistent. So I went to the local hospital – I was only in there for about an hour and a half – I was given really thorough checks and I was given a completely clean bill of health, I’m absolutely fine. I am absolutely fine, no matter what anyone might think.   

The other campmates received a message from Richard at the beginning of the episode.

In the clip Richard said: ‘Hi guys, first thing to tell you straight away is I’m completely fine, it was what was known as a false alarm but I had to come out for a couple of hours of medical checks.   

“I am as fit as a fiddle” in which case, I would/should be back with you. It’s Covid our old friend, and it was my turn to go out in the Covid world. I cannot risk bringing back the bug and ruining your experience, and that of the program and viewers. My adventure has ended.

Weather: The remaining stars will individually return to quarantine to ensure they remain covid secure and will only return once the whole production is safely re-established

He said, “I just wanted to tell you how much you love me. You know that I do that. I am going to create the WhatsApp group that we talked about so that you can come out. 

We can still talk and possibly meet again. However, I will be following the competition closely over the coming weeks. I wish all of you the best luck and love in this world. I cannot wait to see the winner.

Richard was set to be replaced by DJ Locksmith from Rudimental, but he reportedly lost on the spot after he was rushed to hospital. To replace Richard, no celebrity is expected to enter the camp. 

To ensure their covid security, each star will be placed in quarantine. They will return to the production only after the technical problems have been resolved and the weather has calmed down. 

Safety first: The stars of this year's series will be spending the night out of the castle due to the treacherous storm

Safety first: Due to the dangerous storm, the stars of this series will spend the night at the castle. 

ITV has not yet confirmed the location of the celebrities who are currently in quarantine while they await the repair work to complete.

Prior to entering the castle, the stars had spent two weeks in luxurious cottages at Angelsey close Gwrych Castle.

Stars were given luxury vacation homes with vaulted ceilings, weatherproof windows, sliding doors and beautiful views. 

These properties are far from the bleak conditions of the I’m A Celeb Castle. They also feature richly decorated snugs with large sofas and fire places.

These rooms also have king-size beds and rolltop bathtubs. 

Interiors are inspired by the surrounding seascape with shades of green, cream and lots of beach paraphernalia as wall decoration.  

As I’m A Celebrity’s production went out, it was deemed “like a bomb hit” as the hurricane poured its entire force into the castle where eleven celebrities are huddled. 

Production workers and security staff had to ‘run for their lives’ when 70mph winds battered 19th-century Gwrych Castle, North Wales. 

Exquisite photos reveal that marquees Ant and Dec drive into were ripped apart, and roofs torn off, and canopies ripped as the gales hit.

Change: Ant and Dec posted a short clip of themselves at Ant's Welsh cottage on Saturday ahead of the compilation show and said: 'Hello and welcome to I'm A Celeb, live from my cottage kitchen, this is the best we can do at the minute as we can't get into site at the minute'

ITV was extra careful to protect celebrities, but there were still many people on set who felt the effects. ITV broadcast a nightly three week-long programme. 

Urgent checks had initially been made to satellite equipment to ensure that Ant & Dec can resume live broadcasts on Saturday, after Friday night’s live show was cancelled and pre-recorded material used due to storm warnings.

Sources said that it was scary. The castle’s front was crowded with people running around trying to protect their properties and get the fencing.

“People were knocked off their feet.” No one was hurt.

Tragic: Following shots exhibited the damage done to a subsequent tent, which had collapsed into a recreational vehicle and exposed a series of metal poles

Terrifying: Sections of its roof had blown away, which exposed scaffolding structures and demountable buildings beneath to strong wind and rain

“But it seems like a bomb hit the site today. It appears that the roofs of the marquees were torn or ripped off, and the equipment lies on the side with the fencing.

It is absolutely devastating. However, producers were able to bring in additional staff and take extra precautions.

As the night storm hit, the celebs needed to be kept away from anyone else in the anti-covid bubble.

Security personnel are housed in caravans near the castle, and battering caused Christmas lights to fly from the roof.

On Saturday, urgent clearing up was taking place and repairs will be carried out to the marquees, where Ant & Dec and all others who arrive undergo security checks and asked to disinfect their hands.

Better days? Viewers at home were left unimpressed by I'm A Celebs compilation show on Saturday as they said it proved the Australia series were so much better (Ant and Dec pictured in Australia in 2019)

Better days? I’m A Celebs on Saturday was not well received by viewers back home. Viewers said they were disappointed because it compared the Australia series to I’m A Celebs (Ant and Dec pictured at Australia in 2019). 

Other images show how the severe weather affected a large tent that protected several trailers and vans used for the production. Onlookers claim all the non-essential staff were evacuated because of the hazardous conditions.

Bosses were forced to pre-record Friday’s show amid safety concerns for contestants at Gwrych Castle in North Wales, with hosts Ant and Dec recording their segments earlier that afternoon.

A section of the roof of the tent had fallen off, leaving exposed structures like scaffolding and other buildings below to heavy wind and rain.

The following photos show the extent of damage to a tent that had fallen into a vehicle for recreational purposes and expose a number of metal poles.
