The first batch of stars to compete on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! South Africa have been announced.
TV’s brand new All Stars show will see the return of some of the most memorable campmates from previous seasons.
It will begin airing next month, with an exact release date yet to be announced.
Instead of the usual Australian outback setting, this show will take place in “the harsher and more unforgiving” environment of South Africa, with the contestant facing challenges “even bigger and tougher” than before.
The first group of stars taking part in the show were announced live on air during Saturday Night Takeaway on Saturday (25 March).

Amir Khan – boxing champion (season 17)

Many more celebrities will be joining the series, but viewers will have to watch to find out who they are and when they will enter camp.
In November, Jill Scott was crowned the winner of last year’s I’m a Celebrity. The ex-England footballer beat out fellow finalists disgraced Tory MP Matt Hancock and actor Owen Warner.
As the final result was announced, Scott and Warner hugged before Warner shared how “gassed” he was for his friend’s success. Scott was crowned by Mike Tindall.
Over 12 million votes were cast and with odds of 2/9, Scott had been the strong favourite to emerge victorious from Sunday’s final, with Hancock less likely at 5/1. Warner, meanwhile, was a relative long shot at 10/1.
Last year’s season was embroiled in some controversy over the participation of Hancock who was announced as a surprise contestant shortly before the series aired.
He joined a roster of contestants that also included DJ Chris Moyles, Culture Club singer Boy George, and broadcaster Charlene White.
