We are so excited for the new series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! to start and it looks like bosses have stepped up the work on Gwrych Castle.
It was announced in August that the 20th series of the popular show will be filmed at the historic site located in Abergele in North Wales instead of the Australian jungle.
However, one thing that won’t be changing are the famous faces fronting the show, with TV’s favourite duo, Ant and Dec, set to return.

Declan Donnelly's long lost family left 'heartbroken' he thought they 'wanted nothing to do with him'
Ant and Dec admit they ‘tried to convince’ I’m A Celeb bosses to film in north east to be closer to their families
Ant and Dec will host an adapted version of I’m A Celebrity live every night on ITV from the castle this Autumn.
And it got us thinking, we see Ant and Dec on our screens a whole lot due to their success – but how tall are they?
Dec’s height has been joked about on I’m A Celebrity before, and when Holly Willoughby co-hosted the reality series back in 2018, she said of Dec: “He’s loads of fun and he’s five foot one.”

Before you start thinking Dec is five foot one, he’s not really, he’s actually 1.68m tall – or 5 ft 5in in feet and inches.
Hilariously, after Holly’s quip, Dec’s Wikipedia page was changed to say that he was actually 5’1.
It read: “Declan Joseph Oliver Donnelly OBE (born 25 September 1975) is an English television presenter, producer and actor who is loads of fun and only 5’1.”
So how tall is co-presenter Ant? Well, Ant is actually a fair bit taller than Dec, and is is 1.73m tall, making him 5ft 9in.

The autumn line-up for I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is reportedly complete, with Kevin Lygo, the Director of Television at ITV, allegedly saying that all the big celebrity names that are due to take part in the yearly challenge are "excited".
"I certainly didn't want a year without I’m A Celebrity," he explained. "We could just about survive without it, but my God it's a premier, wonderful thing that has done so well over a long period."
Kevin continued: "Australia was always going to be a challenge so we found this extraordinary place in go here in North Wales that's a sort of beautiful, Disney drawn castle crumbling. We just thought it looks like perfect vacation."

Staff members are believed to be equally excited at the prospect of creating games and tasks for celebrities to take on in a brand new location.
"I think it'll be fascinating to see what audiences do and a great challenge to producers to come up with different games and different tasks and not do exactly the same as they've been doing for years," Kevin went on.
We can’t wait!
