Gwrych Castle to host “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!”

There are exciting things on the horizon for one of my favourite venues! Before the recent pandemic I had the privilege of working at some of the most beautiful venues across the country, bringing magic and entertainment to young and old alike.

Some places I only got the chance to visit once or twice, others I’d make a regular trip to once a year. Some venues I found myself at multiple times every year, so much so that I got associated with them.

Gwrych Castle is one such place – a gorgeous venue where I am happy to be called their resident wizard/magician.

Over the years I have performed at this beautiful faux castle and grounds as part of their medieval events, Christmas events and much more aside. I have roamed the grounds and gardens showing off some mind bending trickery and performing shows that will stick with me for years to come. It is always a pleasure to work there as the group of volunteers that run the place are lovely people, and dedicated to preserving and restoring the castle. 

So, I was excited to hear of the huge news for Gwrych Castle that they are to host the upcoming series of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!

"I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!" text

Normally filmed in Australia in previous years, due to the world changing events of Covid 19, they were forced to find a new location for this year’s series. After “hunting the countryside” they found the extraordinary location of Gwrych Castle, described by Kevin Lygo, Director of television at ITV, as a ‘“Walt Disney drawn castle”. I can safely say that it is definitely a place that has been full of magic!

It’s sure to be a new challenge for the producers, hosts Ant and Dec and of course the team at Gwrych, who have been busy preparing the site for when the telly crews arrive. But I am sure it is a challenge that all involved will rise to. This is a fantastic opportunity for Gwrych Castle and its team, one that will bring the site much deserved recognition. 

So when 2020s series of I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! airs later this year I will definitely be tuning in to see how the celebrities fare at this most characterful location.

Oh and did we mention that the castle is haunted….mwhahahahaaaaa!

“We went to watch Jay’s magic show this weekend at Wigfair Hall.

The magic show fits in so well with the stunning venue, and Jay didn’t disappoint! Lots of laughs, a fun night and plenty of magic of course ;-)”

“Such an amazing show last night! Spent most of the night with my mouth hanging open! Was the perfect amount of comedy, mystery and magic!

I can’t wait to come and see another show, by far the best magician I’ve seen!

The special guest juggler was also HILARIOUS and very skilled! So entertaining!

Thank you both for a great night!”
