ITV have finally confirmed that November 19th is the date that I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here will be starting, much to the excitement of fans.
I’m A Celebrity is one of the biggest shows in Britain, enjoyed every single year by millions of viewers as celebrities chomp down on animals and bugs.
The hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly are set to return to the hit show with a new line-up of celebrities entering the Australian jungle. This will be McPartlin’s first television appearance since completing a period of time in rehab due to his addiction problems.
Fans were worried that I’m A Celebrity would not continue especially as filming for promotional adverts had been halted while Ant recovered.
The Sun reported that the show’s bosses had hired a large set at London’s Pinewood Studios so that the boys could record their “big-budget” promo. But as Ant continues to recover in LA, filming has been postponed.
However, TV insiders have claimed that ITV are supporting Ant’s recovery as best as they can and are happy to give him the time he needs to recuperate.
But ITV dropped the first teaser trailer for the new series earlier this week and have now confirmed the official date of the launch. It is launching two weeks later than usual but fans are happy to wait.

The celebrity line-up for the show is still being kept quiet but it is believed that Gemma Collins could make a sensational return three years on after quitting the show after just 72 hours in the camp.
The show’s 2016 winner Scarlett Moffatt and runner-up Joel Dommett will be presenting Extra Camp along with regular Joe Swash.
We are so glad to hear that Ant will be returning to I’m A Celebrity alongside Dec and is doing well in his recovery. We wish him all the best and can’t wait to see the boys on our screens again.
Let us know if you’re excited for the show’s return @CelebMix!
