“I’m A Celebrity” is coming to Manchester!


(Don’t worry, there are no spoilers here if you missed this year’s final!)


ITV has confirmed that it’s going to build a brand new multi-million-pound entertainment attraction in Salford, to give members of the public an opportunity to head into the Australian outback.

Fans of the pre-Christmas television favourite I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will get to talk part in a range of themed challenges when the new venue opens at MediaCityUK next year.

The I’m A Celebrity… Jungle Challenge will form part of an epic 2,500sqm indoor entertainment centre, featuring replicas of the famous Base Camp, Croc Creek and Snake Rock.

Visitors can expect the ultimate jungle encounter, as the action-packed family entertainment site promises to ‘helicopter’ campmates deep into the heart of the jungle.

Once there, they’ll need to navigate a series of obstacles and challenges, face their fears and test their nerves and agility as they collect stars to be crowned king or queen of the jungle!

James Penfold, controller of partnerships at ITV, said: “The I’m A Celebrity… Jungle Challenge is a one of a kind, multi-sensory adrenaline adventure.

“It brings together the heart and soul of the hugely celebrated series, and ITV’s expertise in curating fantastic, memorable live brand experiences as a great example of our ‘More than TV’ strategy.”

The announcement is being seen as the next exciting chapter in ITV’s expanding portfolio of live events, tours and attractions.

The line-up already includes Coronation Street The Tour, Emmerdale Village Tour and Emmerdale Studio Experience.

As well as the ITV offering, fans of iconic tv shows have also been able to experience what it’s like to be a participant in the legendary Channel 4 gameshow The Crystal Maze.

The Crystal Maze Live Experience on Lower Byrom Street – a stone’s throw away from the old Granada Studios building – has been open since mid-2017.

Work on ITV’s thrilling jungle experience is expected to start in early 2020, and the attraction will open later in the year.

Visitors can expect a 90-minute, action-packed challenge through jungle ziplines, parachute drops and vertical climbing walls. There’s no word yet on whether there’ll be any critters though!
