I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here’s start time will retun to normal for the final, ITV has confirmed.
The hit reality series’ semi-final took place on Saturday (26 November). It will be followed on Sunday (27 November) by the grand final where the next king or queen of the jungle will be crowned.
But due to the World Cup match between Argentina and Mexico being televised by ITV, the start of I’m a Celeb was slightly moved for the semi-final. Leaving fans wondering if the long-awaited final could be changed as well.
ITV has confirmed its TV schedule for Sunday, 27 November. Here is all you need to know:
What time is I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here on tonight?
The semi-final of the hit series will aired at a slightly later time than usual on ITV on Saturday. I’m a Celeb usually airs at 9pm on weekdays and weekends, but due to the World Cup the schedule has been disrupted throughout the last week.
ITV are splitting coverage of the tournament in Qatar with BBC. However the broadcaster will only show one game on Sunday (27 November) at 10am, meaning it won’t cause any changes to the schedule for I’m a Celebrity.
The I’m a Celebrity final will start at 9pm on 27 November and will run until 10.40pm.
What happened last night?
Mike Tindall was eliminated in the final eviction before the grand finale on Sunday. Prior to that the celebs competed in the famous cyclone and then hunted for hidden choc ices.
Comedian Seann Walsh was eliminated on Friday, leaving a final four of Matt Hancock, Jill Scott, Mike Tindall and Owen Warner. He was the seventh celeb to be evicted from the jungle.
He told hosts of the ITV show Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly that the former health secretary is a “lovely guy” and “he’s still in there for a reason”. “No one was expecting Matt Hancock to be there,” he added.
Hancock told the Bush Telegraph on Friday: “We’re so near the end and I’m delighted to be still here. I never thought I’d make it to the final five and here I am, so I’m very grateful.”
Hollyoaks star Warner said earlier, after the campmates got ingredients for a fry-up: “The jungle giveth and the jungle taketh away. It’s given me another day in this beautiful place, but it’s taken my beautiful boy Chris, which I’m devastated about, he’s an absolute legend.”
Lioness Scott said: “I’m so sad to see Chris go. He was a great campmate. He’s so funny, so hilarious. I’m going to literally miss him so much.”
Meanwhile, Hancock and former rugby player Tindall took on Friday’s Bushtucker Trial, Fallen Stars. Tindall was asked questions to earn Hancock the time to put together puzzles in a cage.
Hancock was unable to finish one puzzle in the time given, so they earned four out of the five stars available. Elsewhere, Walsh tried to teach Scott and Warner how to do an impression of his fellow comedian Michael McIntyre while they were sitting at the creek.
In the Bush Telegraph, Warner said: “Didn’t go very well at all. I sounded nothing like him and I know Jill sounded nothing like him. I’ll stick to the acting and Jill will stick to the football, leave the impressions to Seann.” Back by the creek, he said: “I can do David Attenborough. ‘Here we have Seann, sitting on a rock, the sunlight hitting his face elegantly… watch how he swills the water around his mouth and then licks his lips…’”
He also revealed he can “cry on cue” as he learned to do so after watching X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent auditions. Warner then taught Scott how to cry by saying: “Pick a point, don’t blink… focus your eyes… really focus on your breathing. Think about how your breathing goes when you cry.”
Walsh said: “It’s just making me want to go to sleep.”
