I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Case Study

Qdos Event Hire delivered 130+ units to ITV’s flagship show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here in 2020 and 2021 when filming moved to Gwyrch Castle during the pandemic.

Given the scale of the production and its rural location Qdos’ extensive product range offered the perfect solution for creating the temporary offices needed by the crew, production executives, scriptwriters, producers and of course the show’s famous hosts Ant & Dec.

Stand out elements included:

Plastic toilets for crew and celebrities at secret locations for the opening segment of the programme where the celebrities.

Bespoke 4-bay and 6-bay CTX modular buildings created specifically as production offices, central rack room, streaming and offices for the programme’s infamous challenges and trials.

12 Next Generation Production Officers for use by the programme’s producers and executives.

Two 32ft x 10ft linked cabins that were sited in the Host Village and used by Ant & Dec throughout the series. In addition, glass frontage Hospitality Suites were utilised for meetings with show executives.

Storage spaces for the 100,000’s of critters, creatures and props needed to deliver the trials that the programme is so famous for.


Mobile offices used as holding areas for the trials along with a shower trailer that the celebrities used before returning to camp

Reefer (20ft freezer containers) and two large walk-in fridges for the numerous nasty foodstuffs that formed part of the challenges.

A combination of CTX modular buildings; jackleg cabins in various sizes and configurations; mobile offices, shower trailers and storage containers were utilised to meet ITV Studio’s exact requirements. Qdos also delivered several bespoke features, including staircases, partition walls and installing lights and sockets within its storage containers.

When Storm Arwen hit the castle and caused extreme damage to the site, Qdos’ team were onsite within hours to carry out repairs and ensure the show was back up and running as quickly as possible.
