The celebrities braved the Australian Jungle, but now their challenges will be bigger, tougher, and their environment entirely more unforgiving in South Africa.

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! has been a British staple since 2002, with over 250 celebs competing for the title of King or Queen of the jungle since its inception. Ant and Dec have swapped their usual Australian backdrop for the South African jungle and brought back some of the most iconic celebrity contestants who will battle to win the first ever title of “I’m a Celebrity Legend”.

“For me, it’s a real issue,” she explains, “because I spend so much time with guests before I interview them making them feel comfortable, going through their story, just letting them know I’ll be there to look after them.”

Such compassion comes as no surprise from a broadcaster who has long used her platform to both sensitively question victims of injustice and forensically interrogate those responsible.
