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

David is a French former professional footballer who has also worked as an actor, model and football pundit.
A former forward, he played football for ten seasons in France before moving from Paris Saint-Germain to Newcastle United in the English Premier League in July 1995.
David suffered a devastating heart attack while playing in a charity football match in France in May 2016, which he revealed left him ‘clinically dead’ for nine minutes.
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’

He collapsed during the match, swallowed his tongue and had stopped breathing before he was revived by paramedics, who had arrived with a defibrillator.
He needed to be shocked four times before being airlifted to a hospital in Monaco, where he endured a six-hour quadruple bypass operation to clear his blocked arteries.
David appeared on This Morning in November 2018 to speak about the shortage of people who know first aid, with CPR playing a pivotal role in saving his life.

He said of the terrifying event: ‘I was just playing football, and I just collapsed. There’s no warnings or alarms, no pain. I just collapsed. It’s very strange as when you wake up, you don’t feel any pain, so you ask yourself: Why are you here?’
Stressing the importance of first aid, he continued: ‘Someone on the pitch was able to perform CPR. There were probably 15 people there, and only one or two could do CPR.’
‘That’s when I realised something was wrong, only two people knew how to perform CPR?’
Speaking about the risks hereditary health issues pose, David explained: ‘My mum died in 2005 from a heart attack. My dad had many problems with his heart. I heard that it was hereditary.’
Soap star: Simon Gregson from Coronation Street, known for his role as Steve McDonald is also heading to Wales
David is dating Maëva Denat, 29, and the pair share a daughter, two.
The couple confirmed their romance in June 2016, just weeks after he suffered the heart attack and three months after announcing his separation from wife of 25 years, Coraline.
As well as their two-year-old daughter, Maeva also has a young daughter from a previous relationship, while David is father to son Andrea, 27 and daughter Carla, 23 from his marriage to Coraline.
Most recently, Radio 1Xtra host Snoochie Shy had been added to the line-up.
An insider told The Sun: ‘Snoochie will bring some edgy glamour into Gwrych Castle, and is guaranteed to hear things up in the chilly ruin when the show kicks off next month.
‘She’s a great draw for younger viewers who will be familiar with her from her social media pages as well as a DJ.
‘Up to now many of the names who’ve signed up are in the older age bracket.’
The castle in picturesque Conwy County will play host to the long-running ITV show for the second consecutive year.
Due to travel restrictions surrounding its usual home on Australia’s east coast, which is currently in the midst of another lockdown, the show will stay in Britain.
