‘Fine, I’m good,’ he answers.

Crew members reportedly spent the weekend drying out Gwrych Castle after it became flooded, and new photos taken on Monday show the ruins still being pelted with heavy rain.

The upcoming series of the reality show is being filmed in the in the Abergele castle in North Wales with more bad weather forecast this week.

According to The Sun, parts of the new set at the castle were left soaked and the crew spent much of the weekend trying to get the place back in shape.

A source said: ‘The crew are working around the clock as it is. But because of the dreadful weather they spent much of the weekend trying to remove standing water from areas of the building.

Never again: Dec swears to never get it done with Ant again, saying: ‘That was the most uncomfortable test I’ve ever had. We shall do them individually from here on in’

‘They’re now trying to work out a way to make sure that, if there’s bad weather when the show airs in November, it doesn’t affect filming.

‘The jungle set was fine when it rained as there was natural drainage and streams. But an ancient castle with no proper piping systems is a whole different story.’

The source added that the torrential rainfall has turned into a ‘headache’ for the crew trying to get the castle ready in time for the celebrities to move in.

A representative for I’m A Celebrity declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.
