ITV traditionally begin broadcasting from the jungle in mid November, usually on the second Sunday of the month, once the X Factor live shows are in full swing. The last three years has seen the show return on Sunday the 14th, 13th and 11th, with the King or Queen being crowned in early December.

As always, the moment we receive an official announcement, we’ll update this very page to let you know. Either way, it won’t be long before everyone’s favorite Geordie duo Ant and Dec, head down under to put the latest line of “celebrities” through their gastronomical paces.

Expect the usual IACGMOOH cast line-up of reality, soap and sporting names. All of whom will of course be at the top of their respective professions, unmistakable household names and in no way desperate for fame or fortune.*

*Not one our more confident of predictions.

Names currently being batted about the I’m a Celebrity, contestant rumor mill include Corrie’s Michael Le Vell, Emmerdale actress Lucy Pargeter and TOWIE’s Joey Essex. Two names from the sporting world being highly tipped to join the cast list are ex England footie star Gazza, and six-time world snooker champ, ‘Interesting’ Steve Davis. Despite many of I’m a Celeb’s viewers having never watched either play their respective sports, bookies are currently making the pair joint favorites to win.

Rest assured though that ITV won’t forget its trusted formula of sourcing at least a couple more glamorous looking stars, providing enough eye candy to satisfy both male and female viewers.
