Talking to, Joe opened up on what he thought so far of the new series.

He said: “Firstly Wales looks amazing, it looks stunning, but you know it’s so different.

“But I think it went really well. I think it’s just going to be a case of people getting used to the new format.

“I’d rather I’m a Celebrity be in Wales than I’m a Celebrity not be on at all.

“I have worked with the production crew, and if anyone can put together what they done, it’s them lot, and it looks spectacular.”

The star explained: “The campsite looks a little like the crystal maze when they were showing you all the different rooms.

“The thing with I’m a Celebrity was because you were all stuck in one camp you had no choice but to live on top of each other and like it or lump it just get on with it.”

Joe later spoke of how he would love to see drama within the camp, saying: “I’m really interested to see how all the relationships work but this year I would love to see some arguing.

“I really want to see some bickering. The last couple of years on I’m a celebrity everyone has got on so well.

“I remember the year that I done it there was murders so in a nasty way I’m hoping that there is going to be some murders in there.”

I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! will continue tonight on ITV at 9pm.
