I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! finally returned to our screens with Ant and Dec at the helm to mark the series’ 20th year on air. This series will be extra special as this year’s celebs will return to Australia for the first time since before the coronavirus pandemic.
The 2020 and 2021 series’ of the show was filmed at Gwrych Castle in Abergele, North Wales. Celebs started arriving in Australia earlier this month, with DJ Chris Moyles being the first to touch down shortly followed by Coronation Street’s Sue Cleaver.
The brand new cast of celebs taking to the jungle isn’t the only jungle news revealed this year. In September, the show announced that while the 2022 series will be in the classic location of Australia, there will be an All Stars edition of the show airing in 2023.
The extra special edition of the show will be filmed in South Africa. Long-time hosts, and geordie duo, Ant & Dec made the announcement via a video that was shared on social media in which they said: “South Africaaaaaaa! That’s right, we’re filming a very special version of I’m A Celebrity in South Africa which is coming to your tellies in 2023.”
The special series is expected to see previous campmates from the past 20 years of the show return to the scary jungle and face dreaded bush-tucker trials again. No information on which celebs will be entering the camp has yet been released, but ITV assured fans it would be coming in “due course”.

I’m a Celebrity…Get me out of here! full list of campmates
Former Rugby Union player Mike Tindall played for Bath and Gloucester during his career and was part of England’s 2003 World Cup winning team. He is also married to Princess Anne’s daughter Zara, making him the first member of the royal family to enter the jungle. He said his Rugby friends would “stitch him up” and vote him into all the challenges.
The 59-year-old Coronation Street star revealed that her biggest challenge will be having her personal life broadcast to views: “I am a very private person and I am putting myself out there, which is what I am most nervous about. “I do keep my life private and I am very happy with my home life. Viewers are going to see a different person to the person they think I am! I am very different. That can be worrying. They might decide they don’t like me as much as Eileen.”
The former Radio 1 DJ spoke on how he will manage in the Jungle and said: “There’s lots of everything in this country, like sport and beer and I am not scared of sport or beer. So I think I will be alright.
"Now I don’t know why I said yes. But I am a huge fan of the show and I know what I am letting myself in for. My friends who have done it before have told me I will have a great time.”
The former Lioness just lifted the Euro 2022 trophy, and decided to take on the Jungle next. Scott announced her retirement from football earlier this year after a massive career including over 150 appearances for long-time club Manchester City.
On her entering the jungle she said: “I am intrigued as to how I will react in the trials. I don’t like rats or snakes and if I had to be underground that would be scary.”
ITV journalist and Loose Women panellist Charlene White says she’s entering the jungle to show the world who she really is. She said: “I love music, dancing and clubbing and I want to show I am just a regular girl from south London who reads the news."
The British actor and comedian may be less of a class clown and more of a camp coward in this year’s series. Aleshe said that it took several attempts to get him on the show due to his fear of "absolutely everything".
Upon her arrival, TV Presenter Scarlette Douglas revealed: “I am dreading any trial involving spiders and I am also dreading the food trial. It’s going to be hard too not being able to bring my seasoning into camp but I want to prove to everyone I can smash it.”
The former Health Secretary has caused quite a stir with rumours of his arrival in the jungle, while he was not included in the traditional cast photo it’s expected that he will arrive a few days after the shows launch as a late addition which is common on the show.
Hancock has been suspended from the Conservative Party as a result of his participation in the show.
According to Capital FM the Culture Club singer thinks th show will be easier than touring saying “It’s just three weeks without any make-up on.” He also said: “My biggest fear is being scared and the trials are not something I am particularly excited about. I will just laugh. I know they won’t want to hurt me. But I don’t want to be bored either and I will try to get the stars for everyone.
"I think I will be the in-house dietician when I am in the camp because I will be telling everyone they aren’t going to let us starve. I will be telling everyone to calm down.”
Known for playing the role of Romeo Nightingale in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks, Warner admitted that he has a phobia of snakes but will come into the jungle with a resilient attitude.
He said: “If someone is out of order, then I will say something. But I don’t want it to cause any tension and hopefully they will stop. I don’t think I will cry either in the jungle but then again I cry at most films and sometimes even new food.”
Olivia Attwood is a former Love Island contestant from the 2017 series. She said: “Being part of I’m A Celebrity still hasn’t sunk in yet and when I first got the call to take part, I didn’t really believe it! It felt surreal because taking part in the jungle is the absolute pinnacle."
Sean Walsh has been confirmed as another Celeb hitting the jungle, however, he was not included in the traditional cast photo so there is speculation of him arriving late alongside Matt Hancock after the launch of the show.
Walsh made headlines in 2018 on Strictly Come Dancing when he was pictured kissing his partner Katya Jones who was married at the time, and Walsh was in a long-term relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries.
