When will the ITV1 series return to our screens? Who will go into the jungle? And will Ant McPartlin still be part of it?
Let’s start at the beginning. When is the show starting?
At this point, nobody’s quite sure.
Filming — or at least, promotional shooting — was set to have begun, but needed to be postponed. Ant McPartlin is still resting after a stint in rehab for a painkiller addiction. The I’m a Celeb bosses decided to postpone the shoot to give him time to rest.
What we do know is that it’s set to begin sometime in November and end somewhere in December. Other than that, we’re simply not sure.
In the meantime, there are a few celebrities who’ve been confirmed to be setting off the for the jungle this year:
Wait, wasn’t she banned from this show?
Late last year, Charlotte Crosby announced she wasn’t allowed on the show because she’d previously appeared on Big Brother.
Apparently her reportedly offering to eat kangaroo testicles if it meant getting on the show paid off, because this year she’s one of two confirmed celebrities.
A source told The Sun:”She’s nervous but so excited at the same time! She never thought she’d get a chance to go on the show because she thought they wouldn’t take her on because she’s done other reality shows like Big Brother.
“She’s been telling her family and friends all about it and can’t wait to get out there now. Bear has been supportive about it and thinks it’s a great opportunity for her.”
What do you do after breaking up with your long term boyfriend?
Fly to Australia to run around the jungle for three weeks!
At least, that seems to be Vanessa White’s plan. The Saturdays star was recently confirmed as heading off for the 2017 season.
Famed for her honest and revealing look at her battle with postpartum depression, Rebekah has been confirmed for the I’m A Celebrity 2017 lineup.
… and that’s it.
There’s no clear start date, a presenter in rehab, and only a few confirmed celebs. Where does that leave us? Our favourite place — rumour time!
So who’s rumoured to be entering the jungle this year? Let’s find out.
Gemma Collins is no stranger to the I’m A Celeb scene. She sensationally dropped out after just 3 days in the jungle back in 2014, but the Towie legend is no in talks to return for a second go.
While nothing is set in stone, Gemma looks like a shoe-in thanks to be being personally backed by co-host of the show and Ant’s other presenting half, Dec. According to The Sun Online, “Gemma has been backed by Dec, he thought she was really good [last time she was on] and he told Gemma she would be great if she came back to the show.
“She’s riding on the crest of a wave right now – she’s doing well on Towie, she massive on social media after?all the memes?and and everyone is a bit obsessed with her.
“She in talks to sign up but it’s early days. Nothing is set in stone yet.”
Gemma entered the big brother house earlier this year and many viewers may remembered her feeling disgusted when Channelle McCleary urinated in the water next to her when in the hot tub.
Between Craig and Gemma we’re noticing a theme — 2014 entrants possibly getting a second shot in the jungle.
His first stint was cut short and he recently told RadioTimes.com that he’d been asked if he’ll go back in. While he neither confirmed or denied his participation, he did seem open to it, saying “Never say never, you know?”
Another Towie face potentially throwing her gloves into the ring is Danielle Armstrong. Danielle quit Towie in 2016 so she wouldn’t have to deal with her ex, James Lock. Word is she’s being lined up for a stint on the next season of I’m A Celebrity.
Since leaving reality TV she’s been wrapped up in her business and a new passionate relationship — but apparently the siren call of television is getting to her.
The one everyone loved to hate on ITV’s Love Island earlier this year, Jonny Mitchell has apparently been approached by producers to appear in the new I’m A Celebrity.
Spencer Matthews is another familiar face to I’m A Celebrity viewers. The Jump 2017 contestant appeared on the show back in 2015, but was kicked out after just three days.
Why? He’d revealed to producers he was on a Class C steroid in preparation for a charity boxing match that never happened. The show staff didn’t think it was safe for him to stay and sent him home.
He’s said he feels there’s “unfinished business” in Australia and is open to a rematch.
Adam Thomas’ twin brother has had his name thrown about in I’m A Celebrity talks lately. There’s never been a family member follow a family member — maybe it’s time to start?
So with three celebs confirmed and a laundry list of others earmarked for the show, it’s set to be an interesting season for I’m A Celebrity. Here’s hoping Ant gets better soon and we can get this show on the road.happy wheels
