I'M A Celebrity finally returns to our screens tonight as a new batch of famous faces enter the jungle.

The new series, hosted by Ant and Dec, will again take place at Gwrych Castle in Wales due to ongoing coronavirus travel restrictions.

ITV's flagship reality show kicks off tonight (Sunday,21 November) at 9pm on ITV.

It will then continue every day at the same time.

Fans can watch episodes that have already aired on the ITV Hub.

I’m A Celebrity bosses had been forced to cancel plans for the show to return to Australia, as the 2021 stars become the second batch of famous faces to enter Gwrych Castle.

The U-turn decision was announced on August 2, 2021, following crunch talks after fears Australia could shut its borders because of the ongoing pandemic.

Celebrities booked for the 2021 series had previously been told that they should pack their bags for Australia - but now will be heading for Wales instead.

The decision was later slammed by 2020 contestant Shane Richie.

The EastEnders actor - who finished in fourth place - told The Sun in an exclusive interview: "When we did the Castle, we all knew it was the first time it had been done.

"We thought it was going to be a one-off for the 20th anniversary and it won't happen ever again in Wales.

"But once they announced they were going back to Wales it took a bit of the specialness off of it."

In January 2021 The Sun revealed how ITV bosses had secured the castle again just in case the jungle couldn't go ahead.

Who is in the I'm A Celebrity Cast 2021

This year ITV have lined up an eclectic mix of famous faces including the country’s best loved soap stars, football heroes, music legends and Olympians.

The full list of stars taking the plunge are:

Concurrent with most years the first trial has already taken place as fans were able to cast their vote before the show had even kicked off for the first time ever.

Reports suggest that Richard Madeley and Frankie Bridge were the chosen celebs to take on 'Turrets of Terror' after receiving the most votes.

The aptly-named challenge is a huge three-level structure positioned in front of the majestic North Welsh castle.

Meanwhile, Victoria Derbyshire, who took part in the show last year has revealed what all the campmates will face before the first show - after pictures emerged of a large motorcade delivering the contestants to their new temporary home.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live's Breakfast, she told Chris Warburton: "Everybody will have gone into the castle on Friday."

And "in all likelihood, they will have done the first group trial," she added.

Ant and Dec return to host the show.

The Geordie duo have been presenting I'm A Celebrity since the first series back in 2002.

There has only been one year that they haven't hosted the show together, and that was in 2018 when Ant took a year off due to personal problems.
