I'm A Celebrity bosses are thought to be panicking over a disastrous series that has seen one of the fan favourites leave and extreme weather cause a show blackout.

The latest series of the ITV reality show kicked off on November 19 and it has already run into problems.

Camper Richard Madeley was forced to leave after a trip to the hospital when he became unwell meant that he had broken the "COVID bubble".

And this weekend bad weather near Gwrych Castle in Wales meant Friday's live show was called off, and the programme could not air new episodes on Saturday and Sunday.

It has now been confirmed that the set of the show suffered damage during Storm Arwen, and the celebrities have left the castle while things get sorted.

According to the Mirror, there are concerns that this series of I'm A Celebrity could now be ditched altogether.

One source said the shutdown had caused "absolute panic".

The insider said: "I'm A Celebrity is the jewel in ITV's crown – one of their top-earning and most popular shows.

"Having it disappear, even for 48 hours, a week into the series is a disaster."

The publication also quoted branding expert Mark Borkowski as saying he suspected there would be "a lot of wringing hands inside ITV".

Viewers have certainly been missing their daily dose of shenanigans from inside the castle.

"Missing seeing all of the celebrities in the castle, hope everyone is doing okay," said one person on Twitter.

"Hope #ImACeleb will be back on Monday!" posted another, while one said they were "gutted" it was off air.

One tweeted: "May as well just cancel it, the whole point is they live on rations and in worse conditions so it puts everything to the test. Going back to a nice bed, hot shower and great food for a few days just ruined the entire point of the show."
