I’m A Celeb’s Ant and Dec discuss freezing camp amid speculation it’s heated

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly addressed on-going speculation about whether or not the camp was heated on I'm A Celebrity… The Daily Drop.

Recently, fans of the show have been adamant that the Gwrych Castle must be heated after Family Fortunes host Vernon Kay was spotted walking around without shoes and Strictly pro AJ Pritchard had to ditch his clothes after he became hot in the night.

However, Ant, 45, and Dec also, 45, have shut down claims that the celebrities have an endless supply of electrical warmth.

When speaking about the new Gwrych Castle location and if Wales felt homely to the double act, the inevitable freezing temperatures came into focus.

Ant said: "It does actually. It's cold, but we knew that coming here.

"It's not a surprise to us. The castle looks amazing, the show's going really well, the campmates are hilarious."

Providing an update on how the celebs were coping with the weather conditions, Ant added: "We've spoken to them down at trials and we said, 'Is it cold in there?' and they said it's that cold that you never, ever get warm.

"Even at night. It's in your bones. You know when you've been out all day walking and you’re cold and it's in your bones, it’s like that – day in, day out."

Dec was quick to chime in to agree with his co-star, explaining: "They've got a warm shower that they have to pump themselves, and keep the fire going to keep it warm, but they said even when they have a warm shower, you immediately get cold again, you can never quite warm up.

"So I think that has been the hardest thing for them, just the cold."

Recently, I'm A Celebrity fans thought that they had rumbled underfloor heating at the castle after Bolton-born Vernon Kay was shown waltzing about barefoot.

AJ Pritchard also sent Twitter into meltdown when fuel "central heating" speculation after he'd suffered a hot flush following the roast lamb banquet.

Taking to the digital platform, viewers of the show were insistent that stars were not subject to frosty temperatures.

"There's no way they don't have central heating… night time in Wales and AJ is half naked," wrote one viewer.

"Of course theres heating, in the main area Ant and Dec don't stand there shivering and the campmates don't either they hardly ever have coats on," commented another.

A third tweet read: "How warm is in there?!? Vernon was actually barefoot. Even i'm wearing socks and i'm in bed!!!!"

While a fourth added: "There is no way they would walk bare foot and sleep on the floor if they were on the original stone floors."
