Speaking to The Sun, a source close to the show said: "There have been some concerns at ITV that it's going to be a mega shock to the system when they leave the lap of luxury and are suddenly living in a damp, squalid castle.
"There are fears some will sack it off. They were even worried some might not even enter the castle at all.
"This will be harder than the Australian jungle. It will be damp and freezing."
