I’m A Celeb stars will ‘swap kangaroo for Welsh lamb’ as camp moves to Wales
I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestants may be tucking into Welsh lamb when the new series kicks off in November.
The 2020 edition of the hit ITV show will be set in north Wales this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and therefore campmates will be tucking into more local delicacies.
Usually the celebs are sent meat such as kangaroo and crocodile to cook in the evenings as the show is set in the Australian jungle.
But according to the Mail Online, rice and beans will still be on the menu as the basic ration for camp.
However, the beans are usually cannellini, but this year they will be haricot beans in a nod to the British cupboard staple, baked beans.
The group of brave celebrities will also compete to add local delicacies such as Welsh lamb to fill their tummies after a day of Bushtucker trials.
It's also been claimed that I'm A Celeb bosses have forked out plenty of money to ensure the campmates are wearing the appropriate clothing in the freezing cold weather.

ITV chiefs are said to have taken expert medical advice on how the stars can avoid frostbite and hypothermia in the Welsh winter.
And as a result they have bought top-of-the range outdoor clothing, sleeping bags and even scores of insulating foil blankets.
A source said: “The bosses are taking no chances and have bought the best of everything.
"It is one thing roughing it in the heat of Australia, but quite another kettle of fish in the Welsh countryside.
"They’ve taken medical advice on the risks posed by the cold weather and have stocked up on appropriate clothing and bedding."
Of course, some aspects will remain the same such as Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly hosting the show – and also the red phone box that is situated in the middle of the camp and used for certain tasks.
Richard Cowles, director of entertainment at ITV Studios previously said: "The Australian jungle is such an integral part of the show it was a big challenge to find a UK location where we could continue to deliver what viewers love about I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!
"But Gwrych will definitely do that; the Castle sits in an amazing and atmospheric setting on a hillside overlooking the Irish Sea.
"While there will be plenty of changes required as we move from New South Wales in Australia to North Wales in the UK, we are really excited to see how we can adapt the format and make the Castle our new home for a very special 20th series of I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! this Autumn."
