I’m A Celeb bosses are reportedly under pressure to make a decision about where the next series of the show will be.

It is claimed they must make a decision within two weeks.

The popular reality TV show is normally held in Australia but the Covid pandemic meant last series was held in a castle in Wales.

And now bosses are set to make a decision, and fast, the Mirror reports.

While Australia is the preferred, there are fears that another Covid outbreak would see the series scrapped all together if it was to return Down Under.

A source told Mail Online that “it’s decision time” for the producers, with Wales pencilled in up to now.

The source added: “However if they choose Australia there is every chance it could be cancelled later down the line because of Covid If they choose Wales, it is guaranteed it will happen.”

They revealed that it costs more to film in Wales due to the fact they’d have to build a set. But they said time is running out to make the decision, with plans in place for both locations.

Earlier this week the Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, said the country’s borders should remain shut as reopening them too soon would leave the country exposed to a more ruthless outbreak of Covid.

The country’s Finance Minister Simon Birmingham also said to push the date of reopening to 2022.

The contestants of the show would normally fly to Australia in November but Qantas has delayed international flights until late December.

Last week, hosts Ant and Dec said plans were “up in the air” but they admitted that they “would happily go back to Wales”.

Dec told TV presenter Lorraine: “It’s still all up in the air, people are having conversations with Australia to see if they’ll let us in.

“If not, we’ve got a lovely alternative to go back to Wales, which we had a great time there.”

ITV have been contacted for a comment.
