I'M A Celeb fans have enjoyed a change of scene this year due to Covid, with contestants swapping the hot jungle of Australia to a castle in Wales.
While you can't stay at Gwrych Castle, you can instead buy one of many castles in the UK to live instead – with some for less than £400,000.
Craigcaffie Tower, Wigtownshire – £395,000
One of the biggest bargains is Craigcaffie Tower, with just three bedrooms along with a kitchen, pantry, and sitting room and playroom.
Built in 1570, it was previously a holiday let but is now on the market – and cheaper than the average home in London.
