Fears of more disruption grow for I'm A Celebrity after a power cut hit large parts of the neighbouring town of Abergele.

Many homes and businesses in the area have been hit by the outage after a "large bang" was heard on Sunday afternoon.

Gwrych Castle is understood to be unaffected but there are concerns about the impact any further outage might have for the production team.

Working is said to be going on "round the clock" to get the show back on air and repair any storm damage.

Last week ITV were forced to cancel the live scheduled programming for Friday due to adverse weather conditions.It was the first time a show had been cancelled in 19 years.

Storm Arwen swept across Wales causing chaos with wind speeds of up to 90mph.

During the storm, the production marquees at Gwrych Castle in Abergele sustained "significant damage".

The base experienced severe technical issues due to the damage, and ITV was forced to also cancel the scheduled programming for Saturday and Sunday as well.

Initially, the celebrities remained at the castle but ITV producers later reversed their decision and the campmates were also removed from the castle.The celebrities have returned to the quarantine rules that they had in place before entering the castle for the first time, and are now isolating on their own.ITV confirmed that once production is safe to continue, the celebrities will return to the castle and the show will resume.

According to SP Energy, around 7,000 customers have been affected with the worst affected areas including Dee Valley, Mid Wales and North Wales.

The electricity company has further confirmed power cuts affecting multiple postcodes in Abergele today. It's warning that the outages could go into Monday.

A spokesperson for SP Energy said, "Storm Arwen has resulted in significant damage to our network affecting supplies in Mid Wales and North Wales. Our engineers have been working to restore power to as many customers as possible throughout the day and night.

"We have additional engineers out that are continuing to assess and repair the damage to the network.

Due to the extent of the damage we know that the time to restore supplies will be longer than usual, however, we will strive to restore all customers as quickly and safely as possible in stages by 6pm on Monday 29th November. We are sorry for any inconvenience."
