Speculation is mounting over which celebrities are heading to the Australian jungle for the 14th series of I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! and now, the launch night has finally been revealed as Sunday 16 November.

ITV confirmed the broadcast date on Twitter with a photo of returning hosts Ant and Dec.

Potential contestants rumoured for down under include Hollyoaks actress Gemma Merna, The Only Way Is Essex's Gemma Collins, Georgie Shore's Vicky Pattinson, Desperate Housewives' Teri Hatcher and Katie Price's ex-husband number two, cage fighter Alex Reid.

Other names in the yet-to-be-confirmed mix include TV presenter Melanie Sykes, Olympians boxer Nicola Adams and diver Tom Daley, Coronation Street's Michelle Keegan, magician Dynamo and former Manchester United captain Roy Keane.


"I've had the Celebrity Big Brother offers and the jungle stuff [I'm A Celebrity]. I met the jungle people but I thought 'Nah, not for me'," Keane told Shortlist magazine.

"The more you say 'no', the more determined they are to get you, so who knows? There’s more to life than football."

Adams also dropped some hints recently, saying she was "more of a jungle type person than a Big Brother type of person".

Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos is a popular choice after her drugs trial victory and has reportedly been offered up to £500,000 to take part. Spokespeople for the show are not commenting on speculation.

Into the jungle: Last year's I'm A Celebrity contestants

Last year's I'm A Celebrity saw Westlife's Kian Egan crowned King of the Jungle, with David Emanuel named runner-up.

The next batch of often fame hungry contestants will say goodbye to their loved ones to sleep in the world with limited food supplies in a camp where finding creepy crawlies in your sleeping bag is commonplace.

They must adapt to spending 24 hours a day with their campmates and of course, take on the infamous and regularly nausea-inducing bushtucker trials.
