I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! bosses have made some major changes that eagle-eyed viewers may well have already spotted.

Of course the stars have relocated to Gwrych Castle, in Wales from Down Under because of the coronavirus pandemic.

With the change of haunting location, TV bosses have had to make some tweaks to the camp life.

And not all those changes have been pleasant.

Mainly, bosses have had to evolve the series to work around the freezing temperatures in Wales compared to Australia.

All the campmates have to share a hole in the floor as a toilet for the next three weeks.

Even in the middle of the night, celebs will have to leave the castle walls to find the outside toilet.

Vernon Kay shared his horror over the privy on I'm A Celeb's spin-off series The Daily Drop on Monday morning.

The former Family Fortunes presenter branded the facilities "rancid" and "disgusting" in an eye-opening statement.

He said: "It's exactly what you think sharing a hole in the floor would be like.

"It stinks. It's rancid. It's disgusting."

New uniforms with subtle tweaks

I'm A Celeb stars' uniforms have been given a makeover for the latest series.

Usually the celebs would boast of glorious tans after three weeks of sunbathing in temperatures of 30 degrees.

In sharp contrast, this year's line-up will be doing everything they can to keep warm in the chilly conditions in wet Wales.

Celebs have been kitted out with warmer jackets and more layers.

ITV bosses were determined to do everything they could to keep the celebs warm in the damp weather.

Double sleeping bags… and sleeping on the floor

Sleeping under the stars in the castle, all the celebs piled into their sleeping bags for the night.

They huddled into their blankets and sleeping bags for warmth while battling the freezing temperatures in Wales.

However, there weren't enough beds for how many contestants taking part in the reality series.

For those who were less fortunate, there were hammocks.

As Shane Richie demonstrated on entering camp, it looked easy enough to fall out of one.

Vernon was a gentleman when he gave up his bed for Victoria Derbyshire.

The presenter ended up sleeping on the floor because it was more comfortable than the hammock.

He told the stars on The Daily Drop: "I slept on floor last night.

"The two hammocks are not comfortable. I said to Victoria as she slept on hammock first night.

"I slept on floor last night. It more comfortable compared to the hammock."

Freezing temperatures and monsoon downpours

Spine-tingling temperatures in camp have been a far, far cry from Oz's scorching sunshine.

Winter in Wales is as expected wet and freezing cold.

Just days into camp life and they've already experienced their first downpour at the castle.

Worst of all, the stars have to run outside to get to the privy regardless of the weather.

Vernon admitted on The Daily Drop: "Day to day stuff outside stuff isn't too bad.

"We've had one real heavy downpour which meant to you had to run to the privy."
