Police found a dead body in woods near the I’m a Celebrity castle in Wales.

The body of a man, who is thought to have been riding a mountain bike, was found near Gwrych Castle, where the hit ITV show is being filmed this year.

Officers made the discovery in Abergele last weekend, NorthWalesLive reports.

The body was found near near Lady Emily's Tower just after 10am on Saturday morning.

But North Wales Police said there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.

The matter has now been handed to the North Wales coroner.

The body was not found at the castle where the programme is being filmed or in the grounds of the estate.

Instead, the discovery was made about less than a mile away to the west edge of the woods behind the building.

Details about the man's identity have not yet been released.

Police are understood to have carried out door-to-door inquiries after the man's car was found parked in the area.

A North Wales Police spokesman said: "We were notified at 10.57am on Saturday, November 28, by the Welsh Ambulance Service.

"The body of a man, who we understand had been on a mountain bike in woods off the Abergele Road was discovered.

"He was pronounced dead at the scene.

"There are no suspicious circumstances and the coroner has been informed.”

I’m a Celebrity is being filmed in North Wales this year instead of its usual Australia base due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Last month, a woman walking near the castle died after being hit by a car.
