    First look at I’m A Celebrity

    The hosts have teased a first look at the I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! camp with just weeks until they return to Australia.

    The hair-raising new promo for the ITV show sees the Geordie duo hurtling through the air as they skydive down into the jungle, before unfurling parachutes emblazoned with a special message.

    Where will the celebs go once booted out the camp?

    The iconic Palazzo Versace Hotel has been ditched from this year’s I’m A Celebrity.

    The celebrities will now relax at a hotel called the JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort and Spa, where rooms start at £256 and offer a fresh, modern look.

    A telly insider said: “ITV has used the Versace ever since the series came to Queensland in 2004. Those classic scenes of the muddy, exhausted celebs arriving in the glamorous, gleaming lobby are part of I’m A Celeb’s very fabric. 

    “The new hotel is lovely, but just different to the bouji opulence of the Versace, which is so well-known to viewers.”

    ITV says the change is part of an overhaul of the show’s many elements after its time away from Australia during the pandemic.

    Scarlette Douglas back in the sun

    Travel presenter Scarlette Douglas has signed up for the show.

    The 35-year-old quit her job hosting A Place in the Sun in August 2022 after seven years to focus on a new property series for Channel 4, Worst House on the Street. 

    A TV insider said: “Scarlette has what it takes to become a big household name like Stacey Solomon and Joel Dommett after her time in the Jungle.

    “She has proved to be a hit amongst viewers following the success of her property shows and there is no doubt that she will be inundated with offers for more telly gigs.”

    Boy George set to face fears

    Boy George has been confirmed to be on I'm A Celeb.

    A telly source said: “Boy George is a real coup for producers, there is a lot of excitement in-house at ITV.

    “The singer is renowned for his dry wit and frank delivery, he is always outspoken and will be hilarious value in camp.

    “There is hope that he will regale viewers with his showbiz stories about his famous friends.

    "While George is well acquainted with Australia after living in Sydney for several years, he has no experience of the Outback, so will be like a fish out of water living rough."

    Babatunde Aléshé will be one to watch

    Known for appearing on Celebrity Gogglebox alongside comedian and friend Mo Gilligan, Babatunde is set to appear on I'm A Celebrity.

    An insider told The Sun: “Bosses are really excited to have Babatunde in the mix. He’s become a firm favourite with Celebrity Gogglebox viewers and producers reckon he’ll be a great campmate.

    “He’s been doing stand-up for years but it’s his banter and constant one-liners with best mate Mo on Celebrity Gogglebox that really impressed the casting team. It’s a great opportunity for him to head to the jungle.”

    Charlene White set to grill fellow camp mates

    Loose Women star Charlene White is taking part in I'm A Celebrity.

    The ITV star who has been an anchor on the daytime show since 2021, has reportedly agreed to fly to Australia for the show.

    An ITV source said: “Charlene is a great signing for the show.

    “She’s got some strong opinions, but is really personable and will be good value around the Aussie campfire.

    “They hope her journalistic background means she will eke out some illuminating conversations from her campmates, which shouldn’t be hard given some of the people she’ll be sleeping in a bunk next to.

    “Seann and Boy George for example both have a very colourful background so viewers should expect a proper grilling from Charlene.”

    Love Island star heads to the Jungle

    Olivia Attwood is the first ever Love Island star to enter the jungle as she is the second contestant to land in Australia.

    Since leaving the villa, Olivia's TV career has taken off.

    She featured in Towie as well as having her own show with footballer fiancé Bradley Dack.

    In 2021, Olivia said she would take part in I'm A Celeb: "I'd love to do the jungle. I'd give Dancing On Ice a go, although it does scare me.

    "I'm a bit of a baby, so I don't like getting hurt.

    "I feel like the minute I fall over once, I'd be done. I know it sounds dramatic, but I'm just a bit like that.

    "For me, the jungle is less scary. So I'd love to do the jungle."

    Funny man Sean Walsh will bring the laughs

    Comedian Seann Walsh is swapping the stage for the jungle.

    Seann caused controversy in 2018 when he took part in Strictly Come Dancing and kissed his married dance partner Katya Jones, while also being in a long term relationship himself.

    A source said: “Seann is an incredible signing for I’m A Celebrity and it’s a real coup for ITV.

    "His snog with Katya is the biggest scandal to have ever hit Strictly. People still talk about it.

    "Seann has joked about his snog with Katya in his comedy sketches but he’s never spoken in detail about their relationship.

    "Life in the jungle is boring and those long hours around the campfire would be the perfect time for Seann to get talking.

    "He can’t shy away from it either as he’s best known for that snog.

    "It’s unlikely his campmates won’t bring it up. It won’t be an easy watch for Katya or the people burnt by their romance."

    "Mike has had a box seat for some of the most important moments in royal history for generations.

    “He is sure to be discreet, but his sheer presence means this series will be an absolute must-watch.”

    Speaking to The Sun as she landed at Brisbane airport, Jill said: "I have never had an interview where they haven't mentioned that.
