A source told the publication: ‘Thankfully, Golden Sands is more than equipped to host the giant crew, and is award-winning and really popular for holidaymakers. They might not get a tan though.’
The accommodation will place the crew just 15 minutes from the ruins of Gwyrch Castle, where the celebrity cast mates will be staying, according to the publication.
While the park is popular with holidaymakers during summer months, the screw will likely be missing the sunshine and heat of Australia, given Wales’ typically wet and cold winter weather.
When contacted by MailOnline, a representative for I’m A Celebrity declined to comment. MailOnline has contacted Golden Sands Holiday Park for comment.
