Im A Celeb cancelled again tonight, claims This Morning host Phillip Schofield
Phillip Schofield has said I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! won't be airing again on Monday 29 November after Storm Arwen caused "technical difficulties".
This Morning host Phillip made the claim on Monday's episode of the ITV daytime show.
I'm A Celebrity was forced to cancel Saturday 27th November's episode after the winter storm hit Gwrych Castle, where the show is being filmed this year.
He told viewers: "It's been announced that there is no live I'm A Celebrity tonight after the castle was hit by Storm Arwen over the weekend."
OK! has contacted ITV for comment.
Meanwhile, This Morning regular Matthew Wright explained how the show has been met with a number of challenges this year, from an intruder in the castle to Richard Madeley's early exit.
He suggested the show may be best to be cancelled for the year as he said: "I don't know what I want, if it'll be better to pull the plug and just say: 'Hey, that's just sowbiz folks'."
Meanwhile, fans reacted to the news on Twitter as one said: "I think it's safe to say this will be the last time @imacelebrity film in Wales #ImACeleb #thismorning".
Another joked: "It's nice to have a break from Naughty Boy threatening to leave every 5 minutes #ImACeleb #ThisMorning".
While a third asked: "Have the pulled the plug on #ImACeleb yet?"
It comes after the bosses were forced to cancel the show and remove the campmates from the castle after Storm Arwen hit the castle in North Wales.
An I'm A Celebrity spokesperson told OK!: "Whilst 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."
Ant and Dec later shared a video on their Instagram page to update fans and reveal they are "desperate to get back on telly".
Speaking in the clip Ant began: "Hello and welcome to We're Celebrities Get Us In There!"
Dec added: "We're desperate to get back on the telly!"
"A little update for you Declan…" Ant added.

Speaking from a kitchen, Dec said: "I've got an update – site was quite badly damaged during the storm and they are in there working round the clock to try and get it back up and running and back up to speed so we can get back on air as quick as humanly possible. But we don't know when that's going to be just yet…"
It has since been reported the castle "looks like a war zone" after the storm hit.
A source told The Sun: "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.”
