  • Some I’m A Celebrity fans have criticised how ‘easy’ this year’s trials appear to be for the 2021 campmates but those who would love to give the trials a go themselves are wondering where is I’m A Celebrity Jungle Challenge?

    So far, campmates have undergone a variety of challenges – with Naughty Boy being voted to do the most trials – from the dreaded eating and drinking trials to facing their fears of heights or small spaces and lots of creepy crawlies.

    Who won I’m A Celebrity 2021? has since been revealed.

    And while this year’s class of 2021 – including Matty Lee, athlete Kadeena Cox, David Ginola and Danny Miller – appear to be doing better at the trails than in previous years, fans are invited to come and have a go if they think they can master it. So where is the I’m A Celebrity Jungle Challenge that members of the public can have a go and see who will win?

    Here’s all you need to know…

    Where is I’m a Celebrity Jungle Challenge?

    I’m A Celebrity Jungle Challenge is based at Quayside, MediaCityUK, Salford, Manchester (M50 3AH) on land formerly known as The Lowry Shopping Centre and can be found on the first floor of the shopping centre near VUE cinema.

    The family attraction features the Main Camp – similar to the previous Australia series as this years’ is at Gwrych Castle, Wales – the Throne, and Winner’s Bridge and the experience promises to ‘put campmates’ nerve and agility to the test.

    With time-based trials for participants to race against the clock, just like the celebrities, in order to collect stars and be crowned King or Queen of the Jungle – unlike the person who left I’m A Celebrity last night. But we cannot guarantee there will be a Cledwyn there running the Ye Olde Shoppe.

    Participants are advised to wear comfortable clothing that enables flexibility such as long trousers or shorts and a T-shirt. Closed-in trainers are advised as the best footwear. Gloves may be worn to protect hands in certain areas.

    Lockers are available for coats and bags.

    And there is advice on what to wear and what not to wear for your own safety available on the website.
