It’s the only show on TV that can get away with forcing celebrities to eat animal dangly bits.
I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! remains one of the nation’s favourite shows, with Bush Tucker trials, camp confessionals and celebrity silliness proving an addictive formula for viewers.
This year the show celebrates its 20th series, and there’ll be all sorts of special things planned to mark the two decade anniversary. That’s if the show manages to get to air at all of course, in light of our current circumstances.
We’re crossing our fingers that the show will go ahead – here’s what you can expect if it does.
When will I’m A Celebrity be on TV in 2020?
While we’d usually expect to see I’m A Celeb on screen in November, lockdown has thrown all of our favourite shows into chaos.
Of course there are currently travel restrictions in place, so it would be impossible to fly to Australia from the UK anyway, but a lot could happen before the end of the year.
ITV boss Kevin Lygo has said that the series “looks likely to return this year” but is planning for the show to air a month later than usual, in December.
He has admitted he is looking at alternatives in case the series can’t go ahead, but I’m A Celeb gets monster ratings – you can bet that ITV will move heaven and earth to make it work if there’s any feasible way.
Who are the contestants on I’m A Celebrity in 2020?
It’s too early for names to be confirmed, but lots of rumours are swirling already as to what the I’m A Celeb 2020 lineup will be.
Beverley Callard, aka Corrie’s Liz Macdonald, coughing major Charles Ingram and ex-footballer Eric Cantona are apparently all in virtual talks to appear on this year’s show.
The 2019 line-up was arguably one of the show’s weaker casts, with no headline-grabbing bust-ups or romances.
Producers will be keen to make up for that with an explosive and exciting set of campmates in 2020. They’ll also be hoping that big stars forced to put their careers on hold during lockdown will be keen to come out and play.
Who are the hosts of I’m a Celebrity in 2020?
When Holly Willoughby filled in for Ant McPartlin in 2018, many wondered if she might be given a permanent hosting role on the show.
But 2019 proved to be business as usual and we’re expecting Ant and Dec to present the show again in 2020.
Who won I’m A Celebrity in 2019?
Former EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa was crowned Queen of the Jungle last year, beating campmates including Andy Whyment, Roman Kemp, Kate Garraway, Nadine Coyle and Caitlin Jenner.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is expected to return in December this year. To see what’s on right now, remember to check out our TV Guide.
