With the clocks going back we’re in dire need of some light entertainment on the box to keep us entertained during the long autumn nights.
And watching a load of famous faces half terrified out their wits being tormented with bugs, snakes and other horrible critters is always guaranteed to brighten up the chilliest of evenings.
And thankfully Bushtucker trial season is almost upon us.
Here everything you need to know about the return of I’m A Celebrity…. Get Me Out of Here! and what we can expect from the new series.
When does I’m A Celebrity Start?
According to sources, this year’s I’m A Celebrity will start on November 19 which is two weeks LATER than the usual airing.
This year’s crop of celebs will be jetting to Australia days before.
How long is I’m A Celebrity on for?
The show typically runs for three weeks nightly – with one celeb kicked off the show every day following the first week.
Who will be hosting the show?
Loyal fans will be thrilled to know the nation’s favourite Geordie duo will be back behind the wheel.
After much speculation about his health, following his recent drug addition battle, Anthony McPartlin will be joining his TV pal Declan Donnelly for this year’s fun
Station controller Kevin Lygo confirmed the news, saying at the Edinburgh International TV Festival: “Ant is doing really well and we are expecting him to return for I’m a Celebrity.”
The ITV spin off has received a shake-up this year though.
Where is I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! filmed?
I’m A Celeb is filmed in Springbrook National Park, near Murwillumbah, New South Wales, Australia.

Who will present I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp?
After a shambolic presenting performance in 2016, Geordie Shore reject Vicky Pattison was unceremoniously dumped form the show – with Chris Ramsay and Stacey Solomon being ditched from the line-up too.
Joe Swash remained the only surviving member of the presenting staff from the 2016 series – and has been on the show since 2009.
He is joined for the 2017 series by 2016 winner Scarlett Moffatt and same-year runner-up Joel Dommett.
Which celebrities will be taking part?
As always – a frenzy of speculation has been bubbling about who will participate in I’m A Celeb series 17 months before the show is even due to start filming.
The usual mix of TV, sport and music stars are being tipped to jet to Australia to willingly put themselves though tasks such as being covered in bugs or eating kangaroo penis.
