I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, which first launched in 2002, has today unveiled its incredible new logo for the show which features the title on top of a hill surrounded by mini castles. This year, for the first time ever, one celebrity will be crowned King or Queen of the castle as they undertake a series of gruelling trials.
The past 17 series of the show have been held in the Australian outback, with campmates spending three weeks in the jungle.
However, due to the implications of the coronavirus pandemic, celebrities will this year be surrounded by the Welsh countryside as they temporarily stay at Gwrych Castle, Abergele in North Wales.
Ant and Dec will return to host once more live on ITV from the castle.
The reveal comes as it has been reported Sir Mo Farah will appear in the show this year for a £300,000 fee.
The enormous sum would make the athlete the highest paid celeb on the 2020 series, according to The Sun.
ITV bosses have been said to be splashing out a huge £1million to secure top talent this year to entertain viewers.
An insider revealed to the publication: “The ITV executives were desperate to bag Mo and will have spent big to get their man.
“It’s a massive coup for producers to get Mo for the series. Everyone’s really excited about the signing and think he’ll be a hit with viewers.
A representative for Mo has been contacted.
“It’s the first time he’s agreed to do anything like this, so it’ll be a massive draw for sports fans.”
Meanwhile, comedian Vernon Kay will reportedly receive a £150,000 fee for his appearance if he signs up, while Coronation Street star Beverley Callard is expected to take home £125,000.
Last week Vernon was reportedly spotted heading into a West London studio for an alleged promotional shoot.
Among those pictured, in photos obtained by various outlets, included stars such as Russell Watson, EastEnders star Jessica Plummer and AJ Pritchard.

The celebs attempted to arrive discreetly in cars with blacked-out windows and many tried to conceal their identities with face masks.
Opera star Russell, 53, gave the game away as he carried a suit bag emblazoned with his name in large writing.
Vernon was photographed wearing a Las Vegas Raiders T-shirt and a blue beanie, as he carried a hot drink into the building with him.
Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for ITV for comment.
Although none of the celebrities have yet confirmed their involvement, it is thought that Mo could be a late addition to the programme with the source claiming the athlete is a “big fan” of the show.
They explained: “Mo’s been a big fan of the show for years and was just waiting for the right time in his career to do it.
“He obviously has an excellent level of fitness and mental focus so will be great at the Bushtucker Trials and will be a positive addition for keeping up team morale for campmates – especially as a lot of the celebs are worried how cold it will be.”
The added that his time in the castle will be an “amazing experience” for him and the “opportunity of a lifetime”.
