The 2020 series of I’m a Celebrity couldn’t have been more different to previous series. Wales instead of Australia, a castle instead of a forest, cold and dark instead of warm and sunny, coats and long johns instead of t-shirts and bikinis, pheasant instead of kangaroo, and many more!

However, Ant and Dec and the 12 celebrity campmates made sure that, despite all the changes, this year of I’m a Celeb was one of the best ever!

Here are some of the best and most memorable moments from I’m a Celebrity 2020:

  • It was in a castle! Never got tired of seeing the beautiful Gwrych Castle and its surroundings.
  • The campmates! It was one of the first years that I knew virtually all of the campmates and I was so excited to see them all before the series even started.
  • When the celebrities all met for the first time at a random cliff face in Wales.
  • When Shane made all the celebs jump when they opened the box.
