Channel Ten has now confirmed that i’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here will launch on Sunday February 1.
Hosts Julia Morris and Chris Brown will be joined in the jungle by 10 celebrities, who will meet for the first time as they travel from their luxury South African accommodation into the basic outdoor camp which will become their new home.
The eclectic group of celebrities are from all walks of life and includes a world famous television actress, an AFL superstar, a four-time Olympian, a legendary Test cricketer, an international model, a fashion icon, a hot young comedian, a television star, a Gold Logie nominee and a member of television royalty.
Taken out of their comfort zone, the celebrities will reveal themselves to the public as never before and are set to test their survival skills through daily tests and challenges.
A nightly, live soap opera where the viewers decide who eats, who plays and who stays, the 10 celebrities going into the jungle will be revealed live and exclusively in the first episode.
Ten is taking a risk by premiering the show against the Australian Open Men’s Final and presumably a Block episode on Nine but keeping the cast under wraps until it launches gives the show the best chance of a high viewership.
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! will launch 6:30 pm Sunday February, 1 on Ten.
