The towers, which had eight pointed sides, were surrounded by scaffolding.

Up the stairs of the castle, several crew members could be seen on ladders carrying out the finishing touches to the property.

A large white marquee had been set up behind the castle for the production to make use of. 

It comes after some of the celebs were spotted moving into cottages in Angelsey near Gwrych Castle, the ITV show’s location for the second year running, over the weekend.

The stars have been treated to luxury holiday homes which boast vaulted ceilings and weather-proof windows and sliding doors which frame idyllic views.

Producers are going to create a bubble for the famous faces which will attempt to avoid rows over vaccinations and keep them safe once in quarantine.

A show spokesperson previously told MailOnline: ‘Like last year, our celebrities will do a two week quarantine with regular testing prior to entering the castle, and will then form a bubble for the duration of their time on the show.’

Last year, I’m A Celebrity required the celebrities to wear proximity monitors which flashed and buzzed when they came too close to one another.

Bosses also scaled down the production team, and had cameras set up already on-site so cameramen didn’t have to be on the set.

The stars will all be heading to Gwrych Castle in north Wales for series 21 which starts on November 21.

Included in the line up are EastEnders’ Adam Woodyatt, Corrie’s Simon Gregson, GMB’s Richard Madeley and Olympic diver Matty Lee.
