I'm A Celebrity faces 'security breach after intruder gets into grounds of Castle' on ITV show

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here reportedly faced a security breach after an intruder got into the grounds of Gwyrch Castle.

The trespasser is believed to have evaded the reported extensive security system on the ITV set after bosses are said to have installed bulletproof robots into the castle grounds to deter intruders.

Security staff reportedly located the unarmed trespasser in the grounds of the Welsh Castle and the individual did not come into contact with the star-studded cast or hosts Ant and Dec, according to The Sun.

An ITV source told the publication: “The intruder in question has tried to break in earlier in the run but did not manage it.”

They added: “He was not far from getting into the actual castle itself, where the celebrities are. I’ve no idea what would have happened if that had been the case as it could have been a breach of the COVID bubble and could have put the whole show at risk. It’s a real headache for the security and crew”

An ITV spokesman confirmed the break-in and told The Sun: “A security breach was identified and an intruder was removed from the location with immediate effect. The safety of both our celebrities and our production crew remains our primary concern.”

OK! has contacted ITV for comment.

Meanwhile the security systems are said to look like a Doctor Who Tardis on legs are designed to keep people out of the area, as they’re equipped with cameras, sensors, sirens and flashing lights.

ITV have reportedly been worried about the public, pranksters or even criminals trying to enter the castles while the celebrities film the hit show over the next few weeks.

The bosses are said to have installed these 4 foot robots, known as Armadillos, to scare off any unwanted visitors.

The UK police often use these technological guards as once they detect movement they trigger blinding flashing lights.

Along with these expensive sentries, ITV are said to have another six levels of security around Gwrych Castle. From ID badges, to patrolling guards, bosses are pulling out all the stops to make sure no one gets through to wear the celebrities are camping out.

The castle is also surrounded by layers of high fences and security staff patrol the perimeter during the night to shine lights to check for intruders in the trees.

A source told The Sun: “The Armadillo is the leading piece of security kit available in the UK. It looks like something out of Doctor Who, but if you came face to face with it you’d c**p your pants.

“It can emit a deafening alarm 16 times as loud as a car starting. It would cause anyone close to it some serious discomfort.

“Its lights would startle even the most accomplished of criminals and its sensors won’t miss a thing.

“ITV bosses are confident that even just the presence of the Armadillo, let alone the other layers of security, should be enough to keep Ant and Dec and everyone else safe.”

OK! contacted ITV for a comment.

The reports of a drastic increase in protection comes after a local woman slipped through security and got into the castle just days before filming began.
