I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of...The Tweed!

ALMOST 12 million people in the UK have got a glimpse of the beautiful Tweed region.

After another successful round of filming I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! at Dungay, Granada's cast and crew are packing up.

Filming on the 13th season of the NBC television series was expected to finish on Monday, with the program finale aired on December 8 in the UK.

The finale peaked with an audience of 11.9 million viewers.

Granada Media Australia has filmed several seasons of the show at Dungay, near Murwillumbah.

Celebrities featuring in season 13 include former Westlife star Kian Egan, Miss Universe Great Britain Amy Willerton and snooker champion Steve Davis.

Production manager Francesca Kybert said filming was now finished and the last few crew members were making their way home.

"It was a hugely successful series with great ratings," she said.

"It certainly got everyone at home talking about the Australian rainforest."

Ms Kybert described the experience of cast and crew as "amazing".

"It's busy, frantic, intense, but above anything it is both rewarding and an amazing experience," she said.

Ms Kybert found it difficult to name a particularly memorable moment of the filming.

"Each series throws up its own bunch of memorable moments that it would be impossible to pick out any individual ones," she said.

Ms Kybert said the Tweed was the perfect place to film the show and hoped Granada would return.

"The location offers the ideal setting for a program of this nature," she said. "Everyone makes us so welcome, the area provides the perfect jungle backdrop to the show and the whole crew love being in the area.

"As always, the local community were hugely accommodating and it's great to be back and to see so many familiar faces."

The 13th season of the show will be available for viewing at Murwillumbah Library in "coming days", according to Ms Kybert.
