The I’m a Celebrity castle is set to return to our TV screens as filming for a BBC show takes place. A TV crew arrived at Gwrych Castle in Abergele today to film an episode of Antiques Road Trip.
Footage from the scene shows presenters James Braxton and Izzie Balmer chatting next to a classic car. It will mark a return to television glory for the castle, which served as the setting for two series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here filmed at the site during the pandemic.
Photos of the BBC film crew were posted on the castle’s social media page, along with the caption: “The sun came out for filming at the castle today! But can you guess what program is filmed? A number of people have speculated that the team was filming an episode of Top Gear at the location due to the presence of the classic car.

However, Dr Mark Baker, chairman of the Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust, has since confirmed the crew are filming an episode of the BBC show Antiques Road Trip. He said: “Antiques Road Trip shot at the castle today and we are very happy to keep Abergele on the map.”
The show has been on BBC One since 2013 and is currently in its 24th series. Each episode features a different classic car and involves antique experts who set off on a journey across the UK in search of treasure and competing to win the most money at auction.
