Ant And Dec Are Definitely Returning For 'I'm A Celebrity'

It looks almost certain that Ant and Dec will return to host this year's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! after the two of them could be heard shouting in a new promo video.

There had been a degree of uncertainty over whether the two would come back for the show, after Ant checked into rehab earlier this year for an addiction to alcohol and prescription pills.

But the pair can clearly be heard shouting 'let's get ready to jungle!' in a new promotional video for the programme, which you can watch here:

Station controller Kevin Lygo also confirmed Ant's return, saying at the Edinburgh International TV Festival: "Ant is doing really well and we are expecting him to return for I'm a Celebrity."

It had never looked likely that one of the pair would return to our screens without the other.

Following suggestions that Dec might partner up with Holly Willoughby to present a new series back in September, a close friend of the pair told the Mirror: "Dec wouldn't work on screen without Ant on any major show and he has said the last thing he would do is go to Australia without him.

"To say he would consider working with Holly was ridiculous. He is a good friend of hers but he would not do that to Ant.

"Ant and Dec are a team with a huge emotional bond, they are like brothers and Dec will only be hosting I'm A Celebrity with Ant by his side.

"They've got months yet to sort things out and the hope is that Ant will bounce back with another hit series of I'm A Celebrity and they will move on from this chapter in their career."

When he entered rehab, Ant released a statement regarding his issues. He said: "I feel like I have let a lot of people down and for that I am truly sorry.

"I want to thank my wife, family and closest friends for helping me through this really difficult time.

"I've spoken out because I think it's important that people ask for help if they're going through a rough time and get the proper treatment to help their recovery.

"The first step is to admit to yourself you need help."
