I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! Starts On 17 November

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! Starts On 17 November

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! will be back on our screens from 17 November, it has been confirmed.

As yet, the celebs taking part in the popular reality TV series haven't been confirmed, but it will be presented by best buds Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.

However, despite the lack of confirmed names for the upcoming series, there are plenty of rumours doing the rounds, with some big names in the running, including Arsenal legend Ian Wright.

Another star said to be making an appearance in the jungle this year is Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway.

Last month, co-host Ben Shepherd teased her about eating 'kangaroo testicles'.

Ben said: "I can't wait for you to go away for a month."

But not willing to give anything away, Kate replied: "I can neither confirm nor deny," before Ben pushed her further: "What's the cryptic clue for that one? Kangaroo testic-?"

Laughing, the 52-year-old then said: "What?! Hello. It's Friday, but it's not that kind of Friday!"

EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa has also been mentioned among the names tipped to head down under next month, as has ex-Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle.

Despite the excitement surrounding the show, however, it has had its fair share of controversy in the past.

Today's announcement comes after wildlife expert Chris Packham called on the show's producers to put an end to the Bushtucker trials, with concerns over animal welfare.

Speaking about the series, the Autumnwatch presenter said: "When I see [animals] being harmed or killed for entertainment, I wonder if we are not in the Middle Ages. It is no different from a circus, you know, and we have got rid of our circuses with wild animals."

And this wasn't the first time he has demanded the show take action. In 2014, he wrote an open letter to the two presenters, asking them to stop 'undermining a respect for life'.

He said: "I have never met Ant and Dec but if I did, I would be chatting about it.

"People make a lot of money out of this but people made a lot of money out of child labour and slavery, other unpleasant things, and it didn't continue when they realised they were wrong."

At the time, an ITV spokesman said: "I'm a Celebrity complies with all national and regional laws concerning the use of insects, animals and reptiles."
