I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here made its return to our screens tonight (6 November).

Now that Covid restrictions have been lifted, it means ITV's hit reality show is back in Australia where a host of new celebrities will take part in the Bushtucker Trials and compete to be named King or Queen of the Jungle.

Ant and Dec are back as hosts alongside an exciting line up of stars who are ready as they'll ever be to munch on some animal testicles and get showered in creepy crawlies.

That includes Love Island contestant Olivia Attwood - who was voted the Jungle VIP guest - as well as singer Boy George, Loose Women's Charlene White and footballer Jill Scott.


Soap stars Sue Cleaver and Owen Warner are also on the bill, with the latter proving to be a fan favourite already with his hilarious asides.

Gogglebox fave Babatunde Aleshe, A Place in the Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas, radio host Chris Moyles and rugby player Mike Tindall all made an appearance too.

But perhaps the most talked about contestant is former health minister Matt Hancock, who will be entering the show as a late arrival.

We've been reporting live on the new season's premiere, as well as keeping track of any noteworthy events from the night.

Viewers call Mike Tindall the 'winner' after horrifying spider moment

Eight-legged beasts are clearly going to be no problem for the former rugby union player, who didn't even flinch when a gigantic spider latched onto his head.

Mike was too busy hunting for stars in the Critter Cruise Challenge to even notice the spider, but the same couldn't be said for the viewers at home.

Sharing a picture of the moment, one wrote on Twitter: "Not even bothered an itsy bitsy about the giant spider on his head... @miketindall13. 'Fear is a choice', he says ... The winner!"

Why Matt Hancock won't be entering the jungle tonight

Although fans are excited to see the former MP on the show (so they can vote for him to get all of the worst challenges), you're going to have to wait a bit.

This is due to how the show is structured, as the two final contestants have always arrived around four episodes in.

If producers stick to this format, this means Hancock will arrive on 9 November - not long to wait, though this hasn't stopped people from airing their frustration that he's not on tonight's episode.

Olivia is getting the VIP treatment

The public have voted for Olivia to be the Jungle VIP guest, and she's chosen Chris to join her.

She sounded pretty apprehensive about the vote, and she was right to be concerned - as it turned out VIP in this case stands for 'very isolated person'.

More on this to come!
