Everything we know about I’m A Celebrity… South Africa

Get ready for the all-new series of I’m A Celebrity South Africa, which sees some of the most loved stars of the show returning for another round of terrifying trials.

The brand new all-star series of I’m A Celebrity is set to begin on Monday 24th April, and promises to be just as exciting and gruesome as ever.

A handful of celebrities have been confirmed ahead of the highly anticipated launch episode, with more famous faces expected to follow.

Among the confirmed stars are Amir Khan, the boxing champion from Bolton who placed 5th in the 2017 series of I’m A Celeb, and Shaun Ryder, the Happy Mondays star from Salford who came in 2nd in the 2010 series.

Also taking part are former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan from Bury, who previously entered the Australian jungle in 2012 and finished in 7th place, Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo who finished in 9th place in the 2016 series, and TV presenter and former Countdown co-host Carol Vorderman, who finished in 8th place in the 2016 series.

Retired Olympic athlete Fatima Whitbread, former royal butler Paul Burrell, ex-England cricketer Phil Tufnell, and American supermodel Janice Dickinson will also take part.

Late arrivals reportedly set to head into the jungle include Myleene Klass, Georgia Toffolo, Dean Gaffney, Joe Swash, Andy Whyment, and Gillian McKeith.

The contestants will be battling it out in the wilds of South Africa, with the ultimate aim of being crowned the ‘Legend of the Savanna’. Among the line-up are familiar faces such as Helen Flanagan, Carol Vorderman, and Amir Khan, who are all set to take on the toughest challenges the show has to offer.

One thing that sets I’m A Celebrity South Africa apart from its predecessors is that it was pre-recorded last year, which means that viewers won’t be able to vote for the winner or who takes on each challenge. Instead, the contestants will compete head-to-head in trials, with the loser being eliminated. The last celebrity standing will be crowned the ‘Legend of the Savanna’.

Ant and Dec, who have been the hosts of the show for years, will once again be leading the way, although this time they will not be coming live from Australia.

According to Ant and Dec, the show will be slightly different from the Australian version, as the contestants will go head-to-head in trials, and the loser will be sent home. This format twist promises to make the show more exciting and, in Ant’s words, “quite brutal”.

Although viewers won’t be able to vote, there’s still plenty to look forward to in I’m A Celebrity South Africa. Fans of the show can expect to see some of the most challenging and gruesome trials the show has ever offered. From eating bugs and creepy crawlies to being locked in confined spaces, the celebrities will be pushed to their limits in a bid to be crowned the ‘Legend of the Savanna’.

I’m A Celebrity South Africa promises to be a thrilling and entertaining series, with a line-up of some of the show’s most beloved stars. Although the show was pre-recorded and there will be no public voting, viewers can still expect to be on the edge of their seats as they watch the contestants take on some of the toughest challenges the show has ever seen.

I’m A Celebrity… South Africa starts on ITV on Monday at 9pm.
