A woman has died after being hit by a car close to Gwyrch Castle, where this year's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is currently being filmed.
The collision happened at a location known as Middle Gate on Abergele Road, near Llanddulas, a mile from the listed building which is hosting the ITV reality show for the next two weeks.
Police say the female pedestrian was struck by a blue Volvo estate car at around 5.06pm on Saturday (November 21), reports the Daily Post.
The woman, from the local area, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Volvo was left shocked, but uninjured by the collision.
Emergency services arrive at the scene
Sgt Emlyn Hughes of the Roads Policing Unit said: "I am appealing for anyone who may have witnessed this tragic incident, or who may have dashcam footage, to contact the Roads Policing Unit.
"The road remains closed and will be for some time as we conduct our investigations."
The spot has become an attraction to fans of I'm A Celebrity who have been travelling to take pictures of the famous castle.
It is not clear if the woman was trying to get a photograph at the time.
