The celebrity, who hasn't yet been named, is currently in self-isolation following their positive result and it hasn't been confirmed if they will still be taking part in the show when it kicks off next weekend. An ITV spokesperson told Digital Spy: "We can confirm that one member of the cast has received a positive covid result and that individual is self-isolating where we are giving them all the support that they need. The full 2020 cast has now been confirmed, but due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, the location has been moved from the Australian jungle to the Welsh countryside – Gwrych Castle in Abergele, North Wales, to be specific. Heading there will be TV presenter Vernon Kay, broadcaster Victoria Derbyshire, actor Shane Richie, Paralympic gold medallist Hollie Arnold and Radio 1 DJ Jordan North. Also going into the castle will be Coronation Street legend Beverley Callard, former Strictly Come Dancing professional AJ Pritchard, author and podcaster Giovanna Fletcher, Olympic legend Sir Mo Farah and former EastEnders actress Jessica Plummer.
I'm a Celebrity will return next Sunday (November 15) on ITV at 9pm. Ten stars will be heading into the creepy Welsh camp with the hope of being crowned the first King or Queen of the castle. 4 I'm A Celebrity has a brand new batch of stars heading to camp - but who will win Credit: ITV 4 Bev Callard is least favourite to win I'm A Celebrity Credit: ITV more on I'm a celebrity mum's the champ I'm A Celeb champ Jac Jossa predicts she'll hand crown to Giovanna Fletcher THE PRITCH IS BACK AJ Pritchard makes sly dig at Strictly as he's confirmed for I'm A Celeb 'YOU'RE FIRED' Ant jokes he'll 'sack' Dec's wife as their manager after Bushtucker Trial URBAN JUNGLE What you need to know about I'm A Celebrity 2020 - which starts SOON Exclusive RICHIE TO POORER Shane Richie says I'm A Celeb will pay debts after Covid left him skint GET ME IN HERE!

North is destined to be one of the more comical contestants in this year's I'm a Celebrity line-up, although we wonder how long the good humour will hold up in the cold, spartan conditions expected in this year's series. Biography: The former host of the Victoria Derbyshire Show was recently spotted by The Sun heading into a rumoured photoshoot for the upcoming series alongside other celebrities expected to take part. Phobias: "I am not a fan of spiders or confined spaces and I don't know what I am going to be like when I get there!" Biography: Bev has been entertaining ITV viewers as Corrie's Liz McDonald for decades now, so it's no surprise that I'm A Celebrity bosses were keen to have Beverley on the show. Viewers warmed up a week in advance with a one-off special, I'm a Celebrity: A Jungle Story, which aired on Sunday November 8. For the first time, celebrities won't compete to be crowned King of Queen of the Jungle.
