'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' 2019 Starts This Month With Dec and Holly Willoughby

The start date for I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! has reportedly been confirmed with viewers not having too long a wait before they can watch someone who used to do page three eating a kangaroo bollock.

'Telly sources' told the Mirror the show will be back on Sunday 18 November.

This year's show will be the first not to be fronted by Ant and Dec, after Ant pulled out of the show to focus on his health and recovery.

But don't feel too sad, because Holly Willoughby is flying out to present with Dec.

And she's pretty chuffed about the whole thing, telling the Mirror: "I'm really excited, I can't wait to go."

She added: "I'm scared of everything, but it's not for me to be worried about that, that's for the celebrities to be worried about, they've signed up for that so it's their problem, not mine.

"If anything lands on me I'm not going to like that very much, I'm not a fan of the uninvited guests but I'm ready to go and I'm excited for the adventure.

"I hope [me and Dec are going to make a good team]. I hope so."

Dec was similarly pleased with the pairing, saying in a statement: "I'm hugely grateful to Holly for agreeing to accompany me to Australia this year.

"She was at the top of my list and I'm thrilled she said yes. It will be a different kind of series but we will try our best to ensure it is no less fun and eventful for our loyal viewers.

"I am also pleased to hear Holly is scared of everything. I am almost stupidly excited at the thought of watching her during the eating trials!"

Elsewhere Scarlett Moffatt, Joel Dommett and Joe Swash will also be heading Down Under to present the show's Extra Camp.

As yet, no celebrities have been officially confirmed for the show, but rumours have been swirling that Harry Redknapp, Anne Hegarty and X Factor winner Fleur East might be making the journey to Oz to get involved.
