The time is almost here, as 10 semi-famous celebrities prepare to be parachuted into the Australian jungle for the 18th series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!.

The first episode airs at 9pm, Sunday, on ITV and will be the first time the show has been presented without Anthony McPartlin, who is taking time off as he recovers from alcohol and pain killer addictions.

The new trailer offers viewers a first glimpse of the new presenting duo of Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby, who is stepping in for Ant. Indeed, they allude to this new partnership in the trailer.

Dec says: "The wait is almost over and the adventure of a lifetime is about to begin for ten familiar faces."

At which point, Holly gives Dec a little dig with the old elbow and he corrects himself.

"Sorry, 11 new faces - you're in the jungle?!" he says.

"I know - how did I get here?" she asks, rhetorically... A 20 second trailer wouldn't really be the best time to go into how exactly she ended up in this position.

Ironically, Ant and Dec foreshadowed Holly's role as a presenter on the show during an opening bit of banter at the start of last year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!.

As Dec introduced the show, he said: "We're here, for the next three weeks, your hosts with the most - me, and the gorgeous Holly Willoughby!"

After Ant's protestations, he corrected himself and said: "Nobody was sure if you would make it or not! We didn't know if you'd be here!"

The rest is history, as they say.

Holly Willoughby will be stepping in to host I'm A Celebrity alongside Dec.

While there is no doubting Holly's presenting powers, it seems hard to argue that the show won't quite be the same without Ant.

Alongside Holly, the other ten new faces who will be living together in the camp are as follows:

Harry Redknapp (Football manager)

Sair Khan (Coronation Street star)

Nick Knowles (TV presenter)

Fleur East (Singer)

James McVey (Singer)

Anne Hegerty ('The Governess' on The Chase)

Malique Thompson-Dwyer (Hollyoaks actor)

Emily Atack (Comedy actor from The Inbetweeners)

John Barrowman MBE (Actor and entertainer)

Rita Simons (Actor)

So even without Ant, there should still be plenty to enjoy across the course of the three week programme - anything could happen.

Will Harry Redknapp get stuck in a tree? Will John Barrowman eat an entire echidna? Will 'The Governess' hook up with James McVey? Maybe Nick Knowles will sing some songs around the campfire?

... I certainly hope all but one of those things happen.
