TV presenter Matthew Wright, who appeared on the ITV series in 2013, claimed the extreme weather conditions had “fundamentally destroyed the production.”

The weekend episodes have been replaced with compilation shows voiced by the hosts, Ant and Dec, featuring the best moments from the previous series.

Mr Donnelly posted a video update on Sunday with his co-host saying they were “desperate to get back on TV” and the team “was working around the clock” to make that possible.

Mr McPartlin and Mr Donnelly posted a video of the exterior of the castle ahead of the show, with the wind whipping and roaring in the background.

“You’ve probably heard that we had to tap the show a little earlier tonight because of the winds here in Storm Arwen,” Donnelly said.
