THE I’M A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! castle is secretly kept at a very balmy 18 degrees celsius, we can reveal.
According to routine checks by production staff – both the living quarters and the celebrities’ bedroom were at the same temperature as the Egyptian capital of Cairo this week.
ITV bosses insisted this would be the toughest series ever – and evicted celebrities have commented on how cold they were in Gwrych Castle, north Wales.
But HOAR understands that the areas where the remaining seven celebrities eat and sleep is “airlocked” – so protected from the wintry conditions outside.
And due to small heaters placed behind a number of the cameras watching their every move, it means the temperature rarely drops below 18 degrees.
A source said: “A few of the celebrities may moan about feeling cold,
but it’s as warm as most people’s houses – or Christmas in Cairo.
“To say it’s freezing is just nonsense. Two checks this week on the area where they eat and sleep showed both to be around the 18 mark.
“The only time it dips below that is when people leave the door open to go for a smoke or to go and use the loo. It’s very balmy in there.”
The revelation comes after we’ve repeatedly told of the cosetted conditions the stars have lived in at the Grade I listed building in Abergele.
Early in the series we told bosses were able to turn the hot water on and off with a switch of a button – despite telling celebrities they must fill a log-burner and pump to activate it.

We also told how they were allowed to shower after trials – avoiding the grim bathroom in the castle – and do not have to empty the toilet.
