Ten continue to make 2015 announcements in the right direction.
Yesterday it was announced that Ten had commissioned a local version of the UK smash I’m A Celebrity Get Me Get Me Out Of Here!.
he new series promises to be one of the biggest and most exciting live reality television events of 2015, as Australian celebrities are dropped into the African jungle with little more than their wits, strength and willpower to survive the competition.
Our celebrities will leave their beautiful homes, families and luxuries behind. How will they cope with African wildlife, a constant series of challenges and tests, basic rations and their fellow campmates?
Who will survive the infamous Bush Tucker Trials? Who will win the hearts of viewers and be crowned King or Queen of the Jungle?
Australians will cheer, cringe and laugh along, as they vote to decide what challenges the celebrities will face, who takes part in the Bush Tucker Trials and who will be forced to shout “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!”
Network Ten Chief Programming Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is a big, noisy and spectacular show for all the family and an incredible live reality television event.
