I’m A Celebrity 2022: Ant and Dec announce reality show will return to Australia this year | Ents & Arts News

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, the presenters of I’m A Celebrity, have revealed that this year’s series will return to Australia.

The long-running celebrity reality show has been filmed at Gwrych Castle in North Wales for the past two years due to the coronavirus pandemic leading to travel restrictions.

But now the popular presenting duo have said the contestants will be back camping in the Australian jungle when the series returns in November.

Speaking to ITV’s This Morning, Donnelly, 46, said: “If they let us into the country we will be back.

“We had a great two years in Wales, we really enjoyed our time in Wales, but this show has to be in Australia, we have to go back.”

The Geordie pair have hosted the show since its debut in 2002, except for the 2018 series when McPartlin, 46, was replaced by Holly Willoughby because he took a year off from work.

During their interview on Thursday, they also hinted at a new spinoff show, which could feature popular campmates from previous series.

McPartlin said: “I don’t know why this has never been done before.

“But it’s a spin-off from the main show where we have former camp mates all reuniting in South Africa, competing in challenges and trials.”

He then asked, “Should I keep talking?”

‘It’s a secret’

However, Donnelly chimed in to say, “I don’t think you should.

“I think it’s a secret.”

McPartlin replied, “It’s going to be awesome.”

He was then interrupted by his comedy partner, who said, “Stop talking! Oh, he’s gone again, he’s still talking! It’s a secret!”
