First trailer released for I’m a Celebrity South Africa

The first season of I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!’s South Africa spinoff is here.

While the flagship series usually takes place in Australia, this new, pre-recorded “all stars” version, which sees celebs from Carol Vorderman to Jordan Banjo return to the show, was filmed on a whole other continent.

Find out more below...

Instead of the usual Australian outback setting, this series was filmed in “the harsher and more unforgiving” environment of South Africa’s Kruger National Park, with the contestants facing challenges “even bigger and tougher” than before.

The park, which is 250 miles from Johannesburg, is one of the largest game reserves in Africa, covering an area of more than 7,500 square miles.

It is actually the filming location of the Australian version of I’m a Celeb, so any viewers from Down Under might recognise the setting.

There are many more celebrities than those who were initially announced taking part in the new series, but viewers will have to watch to find out who they are and when they will enter camp.
