It comes around quicker every year. Before you know it, you’ll be watching a celebrity eating a kangaroo’s unmentionables in the name of entertainment.

It can only be the return of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Since the pandemic the ITV show has been hosted in the considerably colder environment of Wales instead of the Australian outback, and fans are hoping it will return to sunnier climes.

There will also be an all-star spin-off version coming too.

Here’s what we know so far.

When is I’m A Celebrity starting?

The exact date hasn’t been released yet, but in previous years the show has started mid-November, and the first episode is always on a Sunday.

Rumours so far include November 13 and November 20 for Ant and Dec being back on our screens.

Where will I’m A Celebrity be for 2022?

After two years in Wales, the good news is that the show is returning to the far sunnier setting of Australia. Fans are hoping it will mean less shivering in the snow and more campsite showers.

ITV confirmed: "Returning to its home in Australia after a two-year break, our celebrities will leave their plush pads and luxuries far behind as they spend up to three weeks taking on the Australian jungle with a whole host of surprises created for them."

The show has been based in a castle in Wales, called Gwrych Castle.

The social media account for the castle shared an update thanking the show.

“As a small charity, we will always be grateful to ITV and I’m A Celebrity for the opportunity to host one of the most watched shows in the UK.

“The show has showcased the true beauty of the Castle to millions of people, and has enabled us to carry out urgent repairs after years of neglect, vandalism and arson.

“We have a huge amount to do to bring the Castle back to its former glory, but we’re excited for the future!

“We will continue to collaborate with ITV and I’m A Celebrity, and we still have many items and set pieces in place from the past the 2 years such as The Clink, the I’m A Celebrity throne, privy and the telephone box.”

Who will star in I’m A Celebrity 2022?

Ant and Dec will return as the usual hosts, and there have been some big names doing the rounds for potential cast members.

Danny Dyer is one of the biggest names being mentioned, alongside fellow Eastenders star Natalie Cassidy. Good Morning Britain weather presenter Alex Beresford is also being rumoured, GBBO winner Nadiya Hussain, and Olympian Tom Daley.

Inbetweeners actor James Buckley expressed interest in appearing on the show: He said: “I’m not a huge fan of celebrity reality shows. But out of all of those ones, I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! does personally seem to be the most interesting ’cause it feels like a challenge.

“I’d be cold, I’d be hungry and even when you win a meal, I’d be like, ‘I just want a Big Mac’.”

What is the All-Star Spin-off?

In one of the worst kept secrets, Ant and Dec revealed filming has started in South Africa for a spin-off.

The spin-off is expected to air in 2023 and will feature former campmates from past series.

The duo wrote: hey wrote: "South Africaaaaaaa! That's right, we're filming a very special version of I'm A Celebrity in South Africa which is coming to your tellies in 2023."

"Hello everybody, we've got news. It's probably the worst kept secret in television but we can confirm we are doing a very special series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in South Africa."

Dec showed the setting, exclaiming: "Look at this joint. We are here, it's going to be your favourite celebrities from the last 20 years who are going back in to do it one more time, it's South Africa."
