This comes after three people lost their lives in gale-force winds brought about by Storm Arwen, with the Met Office issuing a ‘danger to life’ warning in some parts of the UK.

A rare red weather warning was issued for many parts of the north east coast, with the Met Office warning of dangerously high winds. This marks the first time such a warning has been issued in over five years, with police in Scotland urging people not to travel ‘under any circumstances’.

For the first time in the show’s 19-year history, Friday’s live edition of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! was cancelled due to fears surrounding the ongoing storm and replaced with pre-recorded footage as a precautionary safety measure.
