ho needs the Australian jungle when you’ve a draughty tower in Wales? 

That’s the take away as I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2020 pitches its tent at Gwyrch Castle. 

There are tears, there are screams, there is improv vomiting. And that’s just radio presenter Jordan North staring over a cliff top. 

Here are the other talking points.

It really did feel like just another series of I’m A Celebrity

Despite the new location and the fact it’s being shot in winter, I’m A Celeb 2020 was exceedingly I’m A Celebrity. A contestant had a height-related meltdown within the first hour (hello Jordan). Ant and Dec’s jokes were terrible (on purpose, of course). There was a gross-out challenge followed by the remote delivery of bonus food. It shows that you can take I’m a Celebrity out of Australia and its essence still endures.

Is Beverley Callard thinking about whether she wants to eat a rabbit the funniest moment of the night?

Imagine suffering near-suffocation by maggot in order to win a hot meal, and then discovering it’s a cutesy – though definitely dead – rabbit. “I can’t eat bunny!” the Coronation Street star exclaimed, though we suspect she did in the end. Jessica Plummer apparently declined to munch on Mimsy, however, as it reminded her of a childhood pet. The one she didn’t have for supper.

Will Jessica bring the big weepy moments?

The ex-girl band singer showed a deeply sensitive side when tearing up thinking of her daughter – out there somewhere gazing up at the same moon as she was. In a series opener low on emotion, this was the closest to a proper sob-out-loud scene.

Is the camp really all that horrific?

We were looking forward to proper torture dungeon surroundings after discovering I’m a Celeb swapped Australia for a haunted citadel in Wales. Actually, though it looked quite comfy – even if, as Ant and Dec explained at length, the wood required to heat the water is quite a distance away from the living quarters. Of course watching on TV is one thing – factor in the inevitable freezing temperatures and it may be a lot more gruelling than it appears.

Jordan North is obviously going to be nominated for every trial

The Radio 1 presenter is a marked celebrity courtesy of his cliff-barfing antics. Before any bugs or Ant and Dec jokes had been lobbed in his direction, he was already misplacing his breakfast. So it’s no surprise the public should put him forward for Monday’s trial. He is joined by Shane Richie, who has earned the immediate suspicion of viewers at home by being chatty and optimistic.

The celebs are already collaborating well

In their first non-Bushtucker trial, the class of 2020 bagged seven stars – out of a potential 10, which means a whopping seven meals. “You’ve worked well as a team,” said Ant. There was a literal sting in the tail, however, as Beverley discovered a cockroach crawling in her trousers. It was then back to camp for some top-level debugging, during which Victoria Derbyshire admired Callard’s bra causing social media to explode.
