An estate agent in North Wales has claimed that the decision by BBC TV show I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here to shoot its next series at Gwrych Castle overlooking in North Wales has pushed up local property prices by up to 20%. 

Wyn-Jones is believes, like many other estate agent firms in North Wales, that the show’s arrival at Gwrych Castle will super-charge the local economy.

“Abergele was always a quiet, sleepy village and the property market was a little bit hit and miss,” he says.

Wyn-Jones says he recently sold a house initially on the market for £425,000 for £495,000 to a buyer from Chester keen to get into the area before the tourism trade kicks off.

“Expectations are high as many people can see the money that can be made from tourism on the back of this so are keen to move in,” he says.

The show will also have a temporary effect on the local short-lets market – some 300 crew, contestants as well as Ant & Dec (pictured, above) are due to descend on the area to make the show.
