I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here 2017 launched with over 10million viewers last night.

Ant and Dec returned to present the celebrity survival challenge, as another batch of famous faces were flown out to the Australian jungle, where they can look forward to completing the usual round of tough daily tasks and dreaded Bushtucker Trials until one of them is chosen as this year’s king or queen.

Contestants are comedian Shappi Khorsandi, boxer Amir Khan, Boris Johnson’s father Stanley, Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas, Coronation Street actor Jennie McAlpine, The Saturdays singer Vanessa White, Made in Chelsea star Georgia Toffolo, former footballer Dennis Wise, social media sensation Jack Maynard and Rebekah Vardy, wife of England footballer Jamie.

The return of I’m A Celebrity 2017 was watched by a huge 10.3million last night (46% share) with a peak of 11.3m, making it ITV’s biggest show of the year so far.

This year’s launch show was slightly down on last year’s 10.7 million but it beats 2015 and 2014.

2013 – 11.9 million
2014 – 10.3 million
