ITV has announced I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here's new spin-off show as the programme is set to be filmed in Wales for the first time.

She will also be joined by a panel of guests, with the participating celebrities taking part in chats once they begin to leave the competition.

Hope said: "I'm so excited to be hosting I'm A Celebrity...The Daily Drop on ITV Hub. I’m A Celeb is such a brilliant show, loved by so many, and exactly what we all need right now. I’m very grateful to get to be a part of the stellar team behind it and can’t wait to see what this series has in store!

"I just know they’re going to go massive this year for the 20th anniversary, and give the audience absolutely top-drawer thrills and spills."

It's replacing Extra Camp which has been I'm A Celebrity's companion series from 2002 until 2019, although it was known I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! Now! until 2015.

The upcoming 20th series is the first time the show won't be filmed in Australia as the coronavirus and travel restrictions meant the location had to be a bit closer to home.

Ant and Dec are returning to host the action live on ITV from the castle every night and they've already teased what's to come in a recent trailer.
