Are Ant and Dec hosting I’m a Celebrity?

Yes, they are! The dynamic duo will be heading back to the jungle together after Ant missed the 2018 show.

Ant, 43, took a break last year in the wake of a drink-driving conviction and his admission that he had been battling alcohol and prescription drug addictions.

In July 2019 the pair shared a photo of themselves looking like they lived in the Aussie outback to show that they are back together on I’m A Celeb.

Which celebrities are taking part in I’m a Celebrity?

Caitlyn Jenner

The Sun exclusively revealed Caitlyn Jenner will be flying to Australia to take part in this year’s I’m A Celeb.

ITV bosses have reportedly forked out more for Caitlyn, the world’s most famous transgender woman, than anyone else this year — topping £500,000.

Ian Wright

England and Arsenal legend Ian Wright is entering the jungle, with last year’s I’m a Celebrity winner Harry Redknapp letting the secret slip during a guest appearance at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham.

The former football manager revealed Ian was reportedly being paid £1m for taking part.

Nadine Coyle

The singer, who shot to fame in the girl group Girls Aloud, has signed to appear on I’m a Celebrity.

The Sun exclusively revealed the news on October 7, 2019, saying producers hope she will blab about the band’s turbulent falling out after they split.

Andrew Whywent

The long-standing Coronation Street actor, who plays Kirk Sutherland in the ITV soap, is set to enter the jungle.

A source said: “[ITV producters] were chuffed to get Andrew as viewers have watched him on Coronation Street for the best part of two decades, yet know nothing about him away from Kirk.”

Jacqueline Jossa

The former EastEnders actress was said to have been in talks to join Simon Cowell’s show X Factor: Celebrity, but her appearance was ruled out after negotiations fizzled out, according to Daily Star.

An insider said: “As ever, line-ups aren’t locked in until closer the time but it is looking more than likely she will be heading Down Under.”

Kate Garraway

The Sun exclusively revealed the Good Morning Britain presenter would be starring in this year’s I’m A Celeb.

The 52-year-old has committed to the ITV series, which begins in November, and has booked the time off work.

James Haskell

Former rugby union player James Haskell is married to fitness advocate Chloe Madeley, the daughter of presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan.

The sports star has recently made the move into professional mixed martial arts and is currently signed to Bellator MMA, competing in the Heavyweight division.

Roman Kemp

The son of former EastEnders actor Martin Kemp currently hosts a breakfast show on Capital FM between 6am-10am Monday to Friday.

His dad, Martin, was the bassist with 80s legends Spandau Ballet, while mum Shirlie Holliman was formerly a backing singer for George Michael‘s Wham!.

Myles Stephenson

Myles makes up one-quarter of boyband and X Factor 2017 winners Rak-Su.

The show made the star an instant heart-throb alongside Jamaal Shurland, Ashley Fongho and Mustafa Rahimtulla.

Where is I’m a Celebrity filmed?

The series is set in Murwillumbah in New South Wales, Australia and is filmed inside Springbrook National Park.

I’m a Celebrity has been shot there since the second series in 2003 but was previously filmed in  Cairns, Queensland.

However, the programme could potentially move from the UNESCO heritage site when the current I’m a Celeb contract expires in 2020.

The Sun reported that producers are discussing moving the show to Kangaroo Island in the future.

Aerial footage from the I’m a Celeb 2019 set has revealed a wooden saloon and hot tub, which might be used to reward winning teams.

Other features include the infamous Celebrity Cyclone slide and a black pond, which will likely be incorporated in the trials.

Will Holly Willoughby be returning to I’m a Celebrity this year?

Holly Willoughby replaced Ant in 2018 but made it clear she was only standing-in on a temporary basis.

At the Pride of Britain Awards on Monday, November 28, the This Morning host admitted she was “looking forward” to watching the show from afar.

Speaking to The Mirror she said: “I’m such a fan of the show so just to sit back and watch it will be great.”

He was crowned champion on December 9, 2018, beating Emily Atack and John Barrowman.
