However, Daily Star's I'm A Celeb correspondent Mark Jefferies has now revealed that evicted stars and their loved ones will stay at the Marriott Gold Coast Resort and Spa instead.
In an exclusive video, Mark said the Palazzo Versace hotel had "been a big part of I'm A Celebrity over the past 18 years".
Speaking from outside, he said: "It's where all the evicted contestants come back to, it's where the friends and family stay.
"We've seen some lovely reunions here. We've seen some winners come back to huge cheers from hundreds of fans.
"But unfortunately this year, it's all change at ITV. This hotel is not being used, and they're moving out."
Arriving at the Marriott Gold Coast Resort and Spa, Mark continued: "It still looks a pretty nice hotel. I know they've got a beach style pool in there. It's got lots of suites, so it's going to be a lovely place to stay."
However, he revealed that from speaking to ITV sources and from initial reports, the move to the hotel could be a "money saving change".
"I do think, from the initial reports and from speaking to ITV sources, is the move here perhaps a money-saving exercise?"
Mark continued: "Versace are a very sort of elite hotel… charges thousands of pounds for most of their rooms.
"This Marriott hotel, as the name suggests, is a little bit more reasonable. I'm sure the friends and family are going to have a great time, they're going to have the very best rooms."
However he added: "But it is quite a big change for the show."
I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! returns to ITV on November 6 at 9pm
