Im A Celebrity bosses axe spin-off show Daily Drop after just one season

I’m A Celebrity producers have decided to axe their spin-off show, Daily Drop, after just one year.

The programme, which aired on the ITV hub, was hosted by Radio 1 DJ Vick Hope and replaced ITV2's I'm A Celebrity: Extra Camp – which was dropped in 2020.

An ITV spokesman said: "The Daily Drop won't be returning this year but we'd like to thank Vick Hope and everyone involved in the show last year for bringing fans of I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! all the latest news and gossip."

As yet, no replacement for Daily Drop has been planned. Instead, viewers can get updates on official I'm A Celebrity social media accounts, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Tik Tok.

While it didn’t air on terrestrial TV, Daily Drop had a similar format to Extra Camp, which ran for 19 seasons and aired immediately after the main show.

It was last hosted by Emmerdale star Adam Thomas and former IAC contestant Emily Atack, who were both previous contestants on the show.

This comes just days after it was reported that producers will enforce a compulsory two-week quarantine for celebs this year to keep them safe in camp.

Bosses are said to be make sure that each celebrity isolates alone to avoid some of the problems the BBC have had withStrictly Come Dancing.

A source revealed toThe Sun:“All of the celebrities will have to quarantine alone for a fortnight.

"Once this ends they will enter the camp, which is basically then their bubble for the whole series.

“Testing will be done regularly in camp and on the set to ensure all the cast and crew are safe.

“ITV thinks this is the best case scenario and will stop any headaches surrounding Covid, which has been a nightmare for the BBC with Strictly.”

A show spokesperson told OK!: "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."

This year’s I’m A Celebrity will take place in Gwrych Castle in North Wales for the second year in a row amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

With filming due to take place next month, plenty of famous faces are forming part of the unconfirmed line-up.

Good Morning Britain star Richard Madeley, presenter Maya Jama and Eastenders star Adam Woodyatt are among those rumoured to be entering the Welsh castle.
