I'm a Celebrity 2020 set to see yet another change...

I'm A Celebrity 2020 starts this weekend, and fans are already counting down the hours until it's on our screens.

As everyone knows, are already some big changes to this year's series, mainly that the show will be set in a haunted Welsh castle instead of the Australian jungle.

The location has been changed due to current travel restrictions, but the 20th series still promises to be as brilliant as ever.

ITV has confirmed that Saturday night episodes of I'm A Celebrity will now look a bit different to previous years.

Saturday evenings this year consist of a round up of what has been happening in camp that week.
