I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here is finally coming back into our lives, with an expected start date of 6 November and a much welcome return to the Aussie jungle.
With excitement mounting for the show, a number of celebrities were spotted landing in Australia this week to start the show, with the likes of Mike Tindall, Chris Moyles and Olivia Attwood making up another bumper lineup of soap stars, sporting icons and more.
Speaking about going into the jungle, according to the Daily Express the Radio X presenter told press: “I have absolutely no idea what my family and friends would think of me doing a show like I'm A Celebrity.
“I have never asked them. But I think they would be much more nervous about me doing Antiques Roadshow.”
2017 Love Island star Olivia Attwood – who made it to the final with ex-boyfriend Chris Hughes - is also in the lineup this year.
She said: "It is day one at the minute so I'm not missing much. But in three or four days the dogs and my fiance probably. I mean four weeks and no s******g what can you do?"
Attwood said she planned to use some code words while in camp that only partner Bradley Dack would know.
She added: "I have got a really cute idea as well so I will save it for in the camp."
The Corrie veteran, who plays Eileen Grimshaw, didn’t offer up quite as much insight to how she was feeling about her forthcoming stint on I’m A Celeb, having simply said: "I love visiting Australia.”
She then got into a car and declined to comment on the series.
Hollyoaks star Owen Warner said he was up for a jungle romance, saying: “My mum is the one who is going to be the one missing me.
“I am single and ready for the jungle. I always looking for romance but I am not going in especially for that.”
England women’s football star Jill Scott has also headed to Australia for the show after retiring earlier this year.
When asked if the Aussie jungle or the Euros final would be more nerve-wracking, she replied: “That is a very good question but I don't think anything will test my nerves as much as that final.
"I have never really been confronted by snakes and spiders in England so I don't know how I will react to them, apart from a spider in the bath every now and then."
ITV’s Charlene White, who presents for ITV News and Loose Women admitted she isn’t massively ‘outdoorsy’ as she touched down in Brisbane on the same plane as Scott – although she denied her involvement in the show.
She teased: "I don't really like creepy crawlies so I don't imagine it was a show I would ever do to be honest. And I am not particularly outdoorsy so I don't know how that would work.
"I don't camp, I stopped going to girl guides because they kept making me camp so I definitely don't camp."
Asked about who she would miss, White said: "I would miss my family, the kids and my other half and the other Loose ladies. If I am not hanging out with them every week I am not sure what to do with myself.
"I think if I was ever to do a show such as I’m A Celebrity the issues will mainly be the outdoors, I don't do bugs, I don't do spiders, I don't do any of those things. So why would I sign up?!
"There are several facets to me so perhaps I would surprise people. Who knows? Maybe you will see a different side."
Comedian Babatúndé Aléshé told reporters as he reached Australia: "I am here to have a good time you know what I mean.
"I am not a camper, I am not going to lie, not at all. Where I am staying I am alright for spiders and snakes, well I should be okay, I hope so!"
He added: "At home with my wife I am a practical joker, I am definitely going to miss her and Judah.
"I am a competitive person in real life, in terms of a reality show it depends what it is, you know what I am saying. But I am just here to enjoy myself and have a good time."
Meanwhile, rugby hero Mike Tindall told the Daily Mirror: "It should be good fun, why not? It is always worth a go, isn't it?
"No one said that when I did Bear Grylls and The Jump and I just do things I think will be fun," he went on to add.
Tindall, who has three children with Zara, added: "The family I will miss the most of course.
"[...] This will probably be the longest time I have been away and then not having communication, that will be the hardest bit.
"But also you get your head around what you are doing and try to win some stars. I want to win stars because I want to eat."
