It’s official, an all-stars version of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is happening.

On Thursday, 22nd September, Ant and Dec confirmed that the new show would be going ahead as they shared a video on Twitter.

“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,” they wrote alongside the clip.

In the short video, they both said: “We’ve got news,” as Dec added: “It’s probably the worst kept secret in television, but we can confirm we’re doing a very special series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in South Africa!”

They then gave viewers a glimpse of the amazing view, before shouting: “South Africa!”

“We’re 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,” Dec continued.

The news comes after much speculation that there’d be an all-stars I’m A Celebrity… series, with multiple names tipped to return to the jungle.

While the line-up hasn’t been revealed just yet, there’s been some speculation about the returning cast.

Gillian McKeith could return over a decade since she first appeared on the show in 2010. McKeith famously ‘fainted’ live on TV after being voted to take part in a trial.

Other names that have been tipped for the spin-off series include: Corrie star Andy Whyment, Diversity’s Jordan Banjo, Made in Chelsea’s Georgia Toffolo and singer Myleene Klass, who has reportedly signed up for the All-Stars series following months of talks. Klass first appeared on the show in 2006 and finished as runner-up.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! will return for an All-Stars series in 2023.
