As we near the end of the year, and everyone starts to get ready for Christmas, there is something else that we all look forward to. Of course, I’m talking about I’m a Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here!
The show, which will be celebrating 20 years this year, has been hosted by the iconic Geordie TV presenting duo Ant and Dec since its beginning. I’m a Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here (usually shortened to I’m a Celebrity) shows various celebrities take part in gruelling tasks (known as bushtucker trials), in order to win stars for their campmates. The winner of the show is crowned King or Queen of the Jungle, and past winners include Vicky Pattison and Scarlett Moffatt.
It has now been announced on Instagram that I’m a Celebrity will be returning to our screens at an earlier date than usual. A collaboration post by the I’m a Celebrity account and the ITV account, showed the date and time of the return of I’m a Celebrity, with a caption that read: “Mark your calendars…the countdown is on!” Ant and Dec shared the announcement via their own Instagram account.
The Instagram caption also included an Australian flag, as this is the first time in two years that the show will return to its original location in Australia. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the show’s filming location had to be changed to a castle in Wales. Although the show still worked well in the different location, many fans missed the sunshine of the Australian jungle.
Excited fans took to the comments section, with one writing: “Woohoo can’t wait. I love I’m a Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here, so glad it’s back in Australia,” While another wrote: “Cannot wait! Next, the line up please.” There has been speculation that Love Island contestant Olivia Attwood and radio host Chris Moyles will be a part of the 2022 line up.
I’m a Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here will return to ITV on November 6 at 9pm.
