New I’m a Celeb special has started filming but it won’t hit our screens until next year

New I’m a Celeb special has started filming but it won’t hit our screens until next year

Filming is believed to have already started for the All-Stars version of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here, and we couldn't be more excited.

Ant and Dec will front the trial-based show that'll see our favourite stars put to the test in Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Still, if you were hoping to see the new format of the series soon, you're in for a shock – here's why.

Look, we all love I'm A Celeb, it signals the run-up to Christmas, births a new national treasure every year, and we take great comfort in the fact that no matter how bad our day is, at least we didn't eat a fermented egg.

Still, there are a few changes with the new series, first of all, it'll be much shorter than what we're used to, with celebs only in the camp for two weeks instead of three.

The lineup is still yet to be confirmed, though rumours have suggested cricket legend Phil Tufnell and star boxer Amir Khan could be returning.

If that sounds weird for a series that's already started filming, according to The Sun - which shared a photo of Tufnell with two other rumoured stars, Andy Whyment and Shaun Ryder, at an airport - it's because the new I'm A Celeb won't be hitting our screens till 2023.

Yep, way more of a wait than we'd like but, fortunately for us, the Australian version of the show will be back on our screens this winter, as usual.


And a source even clued us into what we could expect from the new series, telling LADbible: "The team behind I'm A Celebrity are making a brand new spin-off of the hit series, this time set in South Africa. 

"It will be hosted by Ant & Dec and will feature the most loved, favourite camp mates from previous years. 

"The show is still very much based in the world of IAC – the camp mates will be doing trials and living in the camp environment, but with fresh and exciting new twists on the format.

"The campmates will have a hand in their own destiny through a series of internal votes and challenges.

"This new edition is likely to air in 2023 but before that viewers will get to enjoy the show's much-anticipated return to Australia in November. 

"The final of the most recent I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! was watched by a TV peak audience of 7.1million viewers, and was the most watched programme of the night for 16-34s with a massive 60% share of 16-34-year-old viewing."

If that's not enough to get you excited for next year, we don't know what is.
