I’M A Celebrity’s Ant McPartlin amazed staff at a Welsh pub as he stopped by ahead of the show launch on Sunday.
The popular telly star, 44, proved a star attraction at The Mulberry pub in Conwy Marina as he enjoyed some down time before the ITV show kicks into life.

The pub’s Facebook account posted a picture of the star in a grey gilet and black face mask posing socially distanced with a staff member.
It was captioned: “Now there’s a nice surprise at The Mulberry today.
“Casually working and look who has time to take a selfie with our manager Jackie. It’s only Ant from I’m a celeb.”

Tonight Ant and co-star Dec gave fans a sneak peek inside their castle studio.
The Geordie lads bickered as an overexcited Ant revealed too much as Dec desperately tried to hide the medieval decor.
A new clip on their Instagram account came with the caption: “CENSORED CONTENT ⚠️ Please do not watch. Especially the bit where we show you the ___ and ____’s in the ___________ – which they’ve done an excellent job on this year, wouldn’t you agree? #imaceleb @imacelebrity.”

Opening a heavy wooden door, Ant said: “There you are, come on in for exclusive access to our set and the castle.”
A concerned Dec interrupted: “Actually most of the things are censored here you can’t see anything before we go on air.”

They began with their wooden presenting table covered with golden goblets, before moving on to a full suit of armour, as Dec did his best to blur them out.
Even the castle exterior was off limits, with Dec superimposing a sand castle over it, much to the amusement of fans.
It whet the appetite, with one fan writing: “I am so incredibly excited for the show on Sunday.”
Another said: “Can’t wait.”
A third shared: “love this.”

ITV bosses took the drastic decision to swap the usual jungle in Murwillumbah, New South Wales, for the 19th century building, in North Wales, because of Covid-19.
Their time will be spent between four main areas – the washroom, boiler room, and living and sleeping quarters.
The living area has a giant fire pit in the middle of it, where they will try to stay warm and also cook meals if they manage to get stars in the show’s trials.
