I’M A Celebrity bosses are braced for more weather chaos after Storm Arwen destroyed pop-up studios at Gwrych Castle.
The weekend weather bomb was said to have left the venue in north Wales “looking like a war zone”.
Repairs are needed to roofs and canopies before Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, both 46, can host tonight’s episode

Workmen spent yesterday desperately trying to make repairs after ITV producers were forced to evacuate the celebs and cancel two episodes over safety fears.
The show is set to return this evening — although bosses are facing the prospect they will again have to remove the stars from the Grade II-listed building.
It is predicted that a 700-mile wide Arctic weather front will sweep over the castle in Abergele, Conwy, in the coming days.
Snow is forecast for Thursday and Friday — with temperatures in the area scheduled to plummet to minus 5C, making it colder than Moscow.
The Met Office warned Storm Barra was brewing.
A highlights show, hosted by Joel Dommett, 36, on Saturday, looked back at the glory days of the reality show during its time in sunny Australia – and that made fans pine even more for a jungle series.
A source said: “The nightmare caused by Storm Arwen is never ending.
“Bosses are working around the clock to get the show back on air — but with more storms forecast for the coming days, the morale is low.”

ITV moved the celebs on Saturday back into isolation so as not to break the Covid-19 bubble, keeping the show secure.

Officials said: “While we get the production base back up and running after suffering technical issues due to the storm, we have removed the celebrities from the castle.”
It comes days after star signing Richard Madeley, 65, was taken to hospital feeling unwell and then had to quit the show.
The TV host insisted he was fine but was said to be “gutted” when left with no choice but to quit permanently for breaking the Covid bubble.
