ITV has confirmed I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! will be returning to our screens in autumn after initial worry over whether it would air due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This will mark the 20th series for the hit show and a one-off documentary called I'm A Celebrity: A Jungle Story will celebrate all the best moments from the show's history.

Jacqueline Jossa won 2019's instalment of I'm A Celebrity.

It's not clear whether the campmates will be flown to Australia - where the show is usually filmed - but a report from Variety claimed that it could be forced to stay in the UK.

If travel restrictions remain in place, it will be difficult to get all the contestants to join and exit throughout the series.

In an autumn schedule press release, ITV also announced the return of Britain's Got Talent with a one-off catch-up show before heading into the BGT semi-final shows that were postponed in the spring.

The Voice will also pick up where it left off, with a catch-up show, a semi-final and a live final -where, once again, superstar coaches, Meghan Trainor, Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs search for the very best vocal talent.

Sir Tom Jones will be back for The Voice.

Football fans will be pleased to know that the annual Soccer Aid will also take place during the autumn after it was postponed in June. The celebrity match will take place behind closed doors with no crowd.

Meanwhile ITV2 also has some returning series and some brand new treats to ease viewers into the autumn. Some of the Love Island contestants will look at their best bits in a three-part special. But there's no mention of a new series of the fan favourite, with ITV previously having confirmed it would not return until summer 2021.

Don't Hate The Playaz will be back for a third series and Hey Tracey returns with Joel Dommett. Keith Lemon is also back with a new instalment of Celebrity Juice as well as Shopping With Keith Lemon.

ITVBe sees a return to Essex as The Only Way Is Essex is back and will be on our screens twice a week and also celebrates its 10th birthday with a special reunion show as well as ten special programmes, each of which will look at a year of the programme's history, which will premiere on ITV Hub.

When it comes to soaps, the press release goes on to explain that Coronation Street and Emmerdale will resume airing the normal pattern of six episodes each week from mid-September.
