I’m A Celebrity 2020 is taking place in Wales this year and luckily the series won’t be affected by the coronavirus restrictions. But what are the Covid-19 rules for Wales?

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is finally here to give us some much-needed escapism after almost a year in the coronavirus pandemic, taking place in a castle in Wales for the first time ever.

Months ago it was feared the classic ITV series wouldn’t be able to go ahead, but production was re-located to North Wales instead of Australia to ensure things can go ahead in a Covid-safe way.

Wales recently emerged from its own second national lockdown, but production on I’m A Celeb wasn’t affected as broadcasting was still permitted.

What are the current coronavirus rules in Wales, and how is I’m A Celebrity still able to go ahead? Here’s everything you need to know…

Once the ‘firebreak lockdown’ in Wales was lifted on 9 November, people were asked to stick to a new set of rules by the Welsh government.

The main coronavirus restrictions in Wales are:

- Stay out of each other’s homes except in limited circumstances

- Limit the times you leave your home and the distance you travel

- Try and restrict the amount of people you meet to two or three

- Maintain social distancing

- Meet people outdoors rather than indoors where possible

- Work from home if you can

- Wash your hands regularly
