The return of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will see this year’s campmates balance on a ledge hundreds of feet in the air, skydive into the jungle and complete a challenge involving creepy critters. The much-anticipated new series of the hit ITV show will launch at 9pm on Sunday with a new batch of celebrity contestants including rugby player Mike Tindall, pop star Boy George and Love Island star Olivia Attwood.
Former health secretary Matt Hancock has also been confirmed for this year’s line-up but is not expected to enter the jungle with the initial group of 10 in this, the first series filmed in the Australian jungle since 2019. The past two years were shot at Gwrych Castle in North Wales due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
To mark its return, the show promises “one of the largest and most elaborate entrances to the jungle camp to date”. Kicking off the programme, Attwood, radio DJ Chris Moyles, Loose Women star Charlene White, comedian Babatunde Aleshe and former England footballer Jill Scott will arrive by luxury car at a waterside villa along the Gold Coast.
Meanwhile, arriving one-by-one by boat to a marina will be Boy George, Tindall, Coronation Street’s Sue Cleaver, TV presenter and property expert Scarlette Douglas and Hollyoaks’ Owen Warner. After the arrival of hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly at each location, the celebrities will learn that the public has been voting to name “Jungle VIPs” and who they want to see have the toughest journey into camp and face the first trial.
