First look at Dec & Holly in the Jungle in new I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! trailer

I’m a Celebrity returned to to ITV on Sunday night (18 November) with a new bunch of celebrities that’ll no doubt be chomping on witchetty grubs.

This year’s camp mates include former football manager Harry Redknapp, The Chase star Anne Hegarty and John Barrowman (Torchwood). DIY SOS’s Nick Knowles, soap star Sair Khan (Coronation Street) and James McVey from boy band The Vamps also feature.

Recent reports have also claimed that British presenter Noel Edmonds will enter the Australian jungle as this year’s secret camp mate. Bosses are said to have offered him £500,000 to take part – the most money the ITV show has ever paid for a celebrity.

Declan Donnelly kicked off the 18th series without his trusted partner, Ant McPartlin, who has taken a hiatus from presenting to battle a number of personal problems. He’s replaced by This Morning host Holly Willoughby.
