The 11 campmates were evacuated when Storm Arwen ripped through North Wales, wrecking the set and equipment. Production crews were yesterday desperately trying to rebuild it.
The weather chaos at Gwrych Castle, near Abergele, forced ITV chiefs to pull live shows on Saturday, Sunday and Monday night.
A spokesman said I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! would return to TV screens tonight.
However, the forced break was not all bad news for the contestants. The celebrities were said to be living back in quarantine in nearby cottages with hot meals and warm beds, in stark contrast to the meagre rations they had been living off.
A show source said: “Things keep changing but we need the celebrities in soon, otherwise we won’t have enough footage.”
ITV revealed in a statement: “I’m A Celebrity… will return from Tuesday on ITV and ITV Hub with a brand new show. [Hosts] Ant and Dec will be back presenting live from the castle.”

On Sunday, Ant and Dec shared that staff were “working round the clock” so the show could start broadcasting again “as quickly as is humanly possible”.
However, they added that they “don’t know when that is going to be just yet”.
Tonight’s episode will feature a live public vote to pick who will face the next trial, with the result revealed at the end of the programme.
ITV has not confirmed when the first star will be voted off the show.

The 2021 series seems jinxed as it was already struggling, with audience numbers down 50 percent on pre-pandemic shows in Australia.
But chiefs said the launch show had a consolidated audience of 11.1 million viewers, closer to normal figures.
Express columnist Richard Madeley was also forced to leave after breaking the show’s secure Covid bubble when he was taken to hospital.
