I’m A Celebrity castle has ANOTHER breach of security as guards apprehend two intruders… marking the third trespassing incident
The I’m A Celebrity castle has suffered a fourth breach of security as guards apprehend two intruders.
The pair reportedly reached the fencing of Gwrych Castle in North Wales on Thursday night, according to The Sun.
An ITV spokeperson told the publication that ‘security escorted the two trespassers away,’ and added that no arrests were made.

A source then revealed to the publication: ‘It’s become a bit of an issue on site that the castle is constantly under siege. There are a few locals who are placing bets as to who can get into the castle to take pics.’
They went on: ‘But producers are aware and have laid on loads of burly security guards to stop anyone from breaking in — it would be frightening for the celebrities.’
MailOnline contacted ITV representatives for further comment.
It comes after two intruders entered the I’m A Celebrity camp and shared brazen pictures from inside as they wandered around the site.

The men wore camouflaged outfits and successfully managed to evade the complex six-tier security system, comprising of bulletproof detection robots, before snapping selfies together at the historic landmark.
It happened while the celebrities were in the Great Hall of the castle close by just ahead of being moved back into isolation individually to protect them from Storm Arwen over the weekend.
They managed to get into the main camp and walked around checking out the celebrities’ sleeping quarters and filming on their phones for a whole 90 minutes before being seen.

It has been reported that the show’s security didn’t see the men going inside as they were too preoccupied with making sure the celebrities were safe during the storm.
However the security did then intercept the trespassers after spotting them and immediately escorted them off site.
Last month security staff tackled yet another intruder metres from the show’s camp in yet another scare.

The unarmed trespasser was able to find their way into the grounds of Gwrych Castle.
Without the alertness of the guards, who managed to locate the troublemaker, the ITV show could have been forced off air as the strict COVID bubble would have been breached.
Even though the man did not come into contact with the celebrities or hosts Ant and Dec, he was within touching distance of the castle walls, leaving bosses of the fan-favourite show on high alert.
Producers are said to have splashed the cash on the high-tech 4ft units over fears YouTube pranksters, criminals or the general public could trespass.

It comes after fan Emma Louise, 39, was collecting her caravan near Abergele’s Gwrych Castle with her partner Andrew, 36, when they decided to see if they could sneak onto the set last month.
The couple inadvertently managed to drive past the first security checkpoint without showing any ID or passes, she said, before finding themselves on the path towards the set of the ITV show.
The couple then drove through five more check points before reaching a dead-end and had a walk around the site on Sunday, she said.
The mum-of-two checked out the iconic kiosk – Ye Olde Shoppe – and saw the trucks full of costumes and kit, as well as two towers, and the front of the castle walkway.
