I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! is back tonight - Monday 24 April at 9pm on ITV1 with an all-star line-up for a brand new 'spin off' to mark the show's 20th anniversary.

I'm A Celebrity...South Africa will see the return of some of the most memorable I'm A Celeb campmates, but that doesn't mean that it will be any easier second time around. According to ITV, 'the challenges are bigger and tougher and the environment harsher and more unforgiving.' For the all-star series there will be no public vote, instead contestant will compete against each other in a battle to become the first ever 'I'm A Celebrity Legend'.

So who's heading out to the South African jungle? Here's the first batch of celebrities heading to camp, but more will be joining as the series unfolds (please let Gillian McKeith be one of them).


I'm A Celeb South Africa - All-Star Cast

Janice Dickinson1 of 9

Janice Dickinson

Janice Dickinson is an American model and television personality. She caused a storm in the 2007 series of the show starting arguments with many of the camp mates. She finished second behind that year’s King of the Jungle, Christopher Biggins.

Phil Tufnell 2 of 9

Phil Tufnell

Former English international cricketer turned television personality Phil Tufnell starred in the second ever series of I'm A Celeb. He lasted the full 15 days, and came out as the winner and King of the Jungle.

Helen Flanagan3 of 9

Helen Flanagan

Former Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan starred on the show in 2012, where she came 7th despite all the squealing. The crown that year went to Charlie Brooks.

Shaun Ryder4 of 9

Shaun Ryder

The former Happy Mondays singer participated in the tenth season of I'm a Celeb in 2010. He came out as the runner-up to The X-Factor star Stacey Solomon.

Carol Vorderman5 of 9

Carol Vorderman

Carol Vorderman is best known for co-hosting the game show Countdown for 26 years. She was a campmate in 2016 - the year Made in Chelsea's Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo took the crown - and came in 8th place after lasting 18 days in the jungle.

Amir Khan6 of 9

Amir Khan

Strawberry-gate! This is the first phrase many people will associate Amir with after his I'm A Celebrity stint. Who could forget when Amir and Ian Lee sneakily ate all the strawberries they won in the Dingo Dollar challenge, instead of sharing with the rest of the team?! The boxer starred in the 2017 series and even after all of his mischief, he still finished in fifth place.

Paul Burrell7 of 9

Paul Burrell

Paul Burrell is a former servant of the British Royal Household and latterly butler to Princess Diana. His reactions to the bushtucker trials in 2004 will go down in history as the most hilarious and dramatic. Paul soon won over the public with his charming personality and tales about the Royal Family, but just narrowly missed out on the crown, coming in second.

Fatima Whitbread8 of 9

Fatima Whitbread

Fatima Whitbread MBE is a British retired javelin thrower. In 2011 she was a powerhouse in the jungle and even had a memorable (but scary) moment when she got a cockroach stuck up her nose. Apparently, she even kept it as a memento...

Jordan Banjo9 of 9

Jordan Banjo

DJ and Diversity dancer Jordan starred in the 2016 series - the year that Scarlett Moffat won - coming in ninth place overall.

But it's not just these nine contestants that could be heading into South Africa and rumours currently abound as to who could be joining them...

We've trawled the internet and below are all those tipped to be receiving a red t-shirt.


Rumoured I'm A Celeb All Stars contestants

Gillian McKeith1 of 6

Gillian McKeith

Everyone remain calm! Yep, iconic fainter and terrorised campmate Gillian McKeith could be making a return to the jungle. She must have received a pretty big pay day for this!

Myleene Klass2 of 6

Myleene Klass

Myleene Klass' white bikini moment became one of the most searched I'm A Celeb moments of all time, but viewers also loved the former Hear'Say singer for her overwhelming positivity in the jungle.

Dean Gaffney3 of 6

Dean Gaffney

EastEnders star Dean Gaffney is back for another stab at the crown after appearing on the sixth series of the show. Whilst in the jungle he famously confessed to having an affair during a chat with campmate David Guest.

Joe Swash4 of 6

Joe Swash

His wife, Stacey Solomon, has all but confirmed this news, but it appears that the 2008 King of the Jungle is back to reclaim his title.

Andy Whyment5 of 6

Andy Whyment

He came second to Jaqueline Jossa in 2019 after winning a legion of fans with his sense of humour and no nonsense attitude and now he's back for more!

Georgia Toffolo6 of 6

Georgia Toffolo

Another former victor back for another shot at the crown is Made in Chelsea's Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo who is probably best remembered for her sweet friendship with Boris Johnson's dad Stanley.
