I'm A Celebrity's new Welsh Bushtucker Trials revealed as a horrifying dark well and medieval weapons are tested on set

I'M A Celebrity's new Welsh Bushtucker Trials have been teased in new photos from set.

In the latest pictures from the ITV show's new Welsh base, I'm A Celeb crew members were seen testing bow and arrows as well as securing a horrifying dark well.

It appears the jungle stalwart is taking inspiration from their new 200-year-old home, Gwrych Castle, for this year's Bushtucker Trials.

And the new campmates, who include Corrie legend Beverly Collard and Sir Mo Farah,should gear up for challenges with a medieval twist.

This year's series will most definitely stand out from the rest as they swap Queensland, Australia for North Wales in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

And while campmates previously had to deal with snakes and unique creep crawlies in Australia, the latest class of celebs will face new challenges as they contend with dank and freezing conditions in Wales.


In the shots, crew members were seen practising archery, which fits in with the castle's medieval-inspired architecture.

Yesterday, the castle was surrounded by 100ft ghostly figures as crew tested the special effects before Sunday's launch.

The celebrities will be facing a lot more than just Bushtucker Trials when they enter Gwrych Castle in North Wales.

While the castle itself is haunted, the celebs will also be spooked by the incredible pyrotechnics.


The crew tested out the display, which sees huge pyres of flames shoot into the sky.

This gives the castle a terrifying effect – as if the campmates will soon be entering hell.

But that's not all, the blue lights behind them appear like ghostly apparitions.

The campmates will have to deal with this when they enter the castle on November 15.

Gwrych Castle is thought to have been haunted for decades, including the previous owner, the Countess of Dundonald, who died in 1924.

Locals believe she fell out with caretaker Bill Price, who would lock up the library at night only to find it opened the next morning. Sometimes, items are said to have been mysteriously moved.

There are also rooms where dogs refuse to enter, including a room where the Countess' spiritual healer is thought to have held seances.

I'm A Celebrity announced their line up for 2020 ahead of Sunday's show.

The list includes Corrie's Beverley Callard, EastEnders' Shane Richie and Jessica Pummer, and Strictly's AJ Pritchard.

Elsewhere, there's Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah, presenter Vernon Kay and journalist Victoria Derbyshire.

Paralympian Hollie Arnold will also be joining them, alongside DJ Jordan North and podcaster Giovanna Fletcher.
