I'm A Celeb stars taking part in this year's series in Wales will end up getting into the most explosive rows in the history of the show, former athlete Colin Jackson has claimed.
The show this year takes place in Gwrych castle, in North Wales instead of its much warmer usual filming location of Australia due to the pandemic.
Welsh native Colin, 53, is adamant the gruelling cold weather as well as hunger brought on by a lack of food in the camp will bring out an ugly side of the celebs on the show.
Colin, who is set to feature on Dancing On Ice 2021, said he was "so excited" for I’m A Celeb to start in his native Wales.
But the TV personality warned the castle will be "freezing" and the contestants are "going to suffer" with chilly temperatures he thinks they have not experienced before.

"That combined with hunger, and they won’t be able to sleep because of the cold and hunger, will make for the most furious rows," Colin said.
He said he thought it would be especially freezing late at night in the castle.
Colin added viewers would see sides to the celebs they didn't know they had.

Insiders told Mirror Online filming for the show kicked off on Friday afternoon ahead of the opening show on Sunday.
Based on previous series, the celebrities are likely to meet up and then be split into two groups, before being sent into the castle in a way that will involve them tackling their fears and trying to win food.
Bosses normally try to involve helicopters or planes for at least some of the contestants to travel in as part of the spectacular start.

The choppers were seen shortly before new flying restrictions were put in place in the area around the set.
Aerial activity status above Gwrych Castle is a yellow or red zone until 8pm on December 5, meaning flying restrictions will be in place throughout filming to prevent other aircraft from taking a sneaky peek.
