ITV have unveiled the cast and release date for its first ever all stars edition of I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here.
The hit reality series will be returning this April with a fresh twist on the format. The celebrities might have survived the jungle in Australia, but how will they get on in South Africa?
The challenges are bigger and tougher and the environment harsher and more unforgiving. With no public vote, they will be competing against each other in a battle to become the first ever ‘I’m A Celebrity Legend’.
ITV first launched the reality show in 2002 and it has been filmed in Australia for the vast majority of its run, except during two Covid impacted seasons which took place in Wales. The legends series was pre-recorded in South Africa.

What to expect from I’m a Celebrity Legend?

The South African edition of I’m a Celebrity will start in April, ITV have confirmed. The series will begin on Monday 24 April at 9pm, with new episodes following each night thereafter.
Is there a public vote?
I’m a Celebrity Legend mixes up the traditional format for the hit reality series. It is filmed in South Africa instead of the jungles of Australia.
The public will also not have the opportunity to vote for celebrites to take part in challenges or to keep them in the competition. The celebrities will be competing against each other in a battle to become the first ever ‘I’m A Celebrity Legend’.
Are Ant and Dec hosting I’m a Celebrity South Africa?
There will be a lot different about the new all star edition of I’m a Celebrity - including the setting of South Africa - but one thing will remain the same. Ant and Dec will be returning for hosting duties in I’m a Celebrity Legends.
The duo have hosted the show since it launched in 2002, with Dec appearing in all 23 series - while Ant was replaced by Holly Willoughby in 2018 due to him taking time away from TV work.
