I'm A Celebrity forced to call police to ban locals flying drones over the castle to film Ant and Dec and campmates

I'M A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! bosses have been forced to call the police after fans of the show began flying drones over the set.

Cops were called to Gwrych Castle in Wales after viewers began using the unpilotedgadgets to try and spot presenters Ant and Dec, along with the famous camp mates.


The local force has now issued a warning to anyone considering using a drone in the area around the castle, which is located in Abergele.

North Wales Police tweeted: "We have engaged with a number of people flying or attempting to fly drones in the vicinity of Abergele and Gwrych Castle.

“Please remember to follow the Drone Code and do not fly within 150 metres of a built up area.”

It comes after flight restrictions were put in place in the area surrounding the historical landmark, up to a height of 1600ft.


The warning states that "multiple manned and unmanned aerial systems will operate within the area”, including “mass aircraft movement” and “exercises”.

Anyone wishing to use the airspace above the castle and within the vicinity has been told to "coordinate with the sponsor" beforehand.

The rules are in place until 2am on December 5, 2020.

Last night, two new camp mates entered the castle – West End star Ruthie Henshall and English tenor Russell Watson.

The pair were thrown in the deep end by being asked to complete a Bushtucker Trial within minutes of arriving.

During the trial, which was watched by the rest of the celebrities, Ruth was blasted with rotten tomatoes and Russell chipped a tooth while dunking his head in a barrel of slime.
