The debut of the 13th series of I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here is so close, we can almost smell it, and as this year’s celeb campers are set to swelter in record-breaking heat, we probably literally will…

So we have a roundup of everything you need to know ahead of the show’s launch later this month, including the start date, the rumoured lineup and what the campmates will be ‘treated’ to on this year’s Bushtucker menu!

So we’ll start with when the show is set to make its comeback, and according to The Sun, it hits our ITV screens on November 17, though that has yet to be confirmed by ITV.

As to who’ll be going in, as we reported yesterday, former Westlife singer Kian Egan has signed up, along with snooker legend Steve Davis, talk show host Matthew Wright, and Strictly Come Dancing star Vincent Simone.

But of course, ITV hasn’t officially confirmed or denied the lineup this year, though it’s also rumoured to feature Miss Universe stunner Amy Willerton, Corrie actor Michael Le Vell, and TOWIE stars Joey Essex, Sam Faiers and James ‘Arg’ Argent.


Also supposedly headed Down Under are Emmerdale actress Lucy Pargeter and one of the Kardashian clan, and as of right now, it seems that Rob Kardashian is the most likely member of the telly royalty family to be setting up camp.

Former The Apprentice winner Stella English is similarly rumoured to be joining the show, as is Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison. Recently sacked politician Dianne Abbott has apparently been offered a place, as has former X Factor judge Tulisa, though she categorically denies that she’ll be taking part.
