I’m A Celebrity 2022: Everything you need to know amid the new series

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! returned to ITV last Sunday, with the celebrities finally heading back to the Australian jungle after a two-year break due to the pandemic.

Hosted by Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, the show has seen 11 unsuspecting stars live in the outback for three weeks of creepy crawlies and Bushtucker Trials.

Originally a roster of 12, Love Island’s Olivia Attwood was forced to withdraw after just 24 hours due to needing A&E medical assistance for reasons unknown – but will reveal the truth behind her departure in tomorrow’s Mail on Sunday.

Elsewhere, Matt Hancock was seen dry heaving as he tucked into camel penis, sheep vagina and cow’s anus during the infamous, gruesome eating trial on Friday night’s episode.

This year, I’m A Celebrity has made its much-anticipated return to Australia after being forced to relocate to Wales for two years due to Covid.

But who is in the line-up, who are the bookies’ favourites and how can viewers watch it? Here, MailOnline tells you everything you need to know about the new series.

Which stars are in the line-up this year?  

Leading this year’s lineup are rugby star Mike Tindall, 80s hitmaker Boy George and DJ Chris Moyles.

Joining them are Hollyoaks star Owen Warner, Loose Women’s Charlene White, A Place In The Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas, Coronation Street actress Sue Cleaver, comedian Babatúndé Aléshé and retired England Lioness Jill Scott.

Following the official announcement, it was revealed that Matt Hancock and Seann Walsh would also heading to the Australian jungle as surprise late arrivals.

The MP quit as Health Secretary after cheating on his wife during the pandemic with long-term aide Gina Coladangelo.

After playing a central role in coordinating the government’s response to Covid, his political career has flagged of late, and last week he was snubbed by Rishi Sunak after the new PM dodged his attempt at a greeting outside Tory HQ.

He became the latest in a long list of political figures to try their luck on the ITV reality show, including MPs Nadine Dorries and Lembit Opik, and Boris Johnson’s father, Stanley.

Bookies have already earmarked Matt as an outsider to win the series, with William Hill pricing the former politician at odds of 10-1.

Jill Scott and Mike Tindall remain the early front runners to take the crown, despite Hancock’s late addition, at 10-3 and 9-2 respectively, according to William Hill.

They are followed by 80’s pop sensations Boy George and Radio X DJ Chris Moyles, who are all priced at 11-2.

Commenting on the latest cast additions, William Hill spokesperson Lee Phelps said, ‘Matt Hancock is a fascinating inclusion to this year’s series.

‘The show has never shied away from getting controversial figures on board and this one will be up there with the most talked about in the show’s history.

‘It will be very interesting to see how he gets on, as you can see from our odds, he is a long shot to be crowned this year’s winner but you would imagine the public will choose him for his fair share of bushtucker trials.’

Meanwhile Matt is 2/1 to break the record of doing the most bushtucker trials (7) after sensationally joining this year’s I’m a Celeb cast on Tuesday 

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: ‘Matt Hancock will be returning as a regular face on our TV screens this year after sensationally joining this year’s I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! cast. 

‘The former health secretary is 2/1 to surpass Naughty Boy’s record of seven by doing the most bushtucker trials in history, while he is 4/1 to be the first departure from the jungle.’

The nation’s favourite Geordie duo, Ant and Dec, are once again hosting the ITV reality show. 

The pair previously said in February that they wanted to get back to Australia after having to host in rainy Wales for two years.

Ant said: ‘Well, the plan is the jungle, so if all things…,’ to which Dec chimed in: ‘Nothing against Wales!’

In a statement this autumn, ITV said: ‘Autumn also brings I’m A Celebrity which makes a welcome return to ITV from the Australian jungle.’ 

Who are the past celebrity winners? 

The 2021 series of the show was won by former Emmerdale star Danny Miller.

The actor, best known as the ITV soap’s Aaron Dingle, took the prize after fighting off competition from Corrie’s Simon Gregson and The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge.

Danny, who entered camp just weeks after the birth of his son, said of his victory: ‘I have made no secret about the fact that I wanted to be able to give him and set him up for a good future.

‘I wasn’t financially set for that and this is an opportunity to do that. It would set me and my family up. I feel like I have done it. I feel proud of myself and I hope my family are as well.’

Giovanna Fletcher was the first person to win the Welsh version of the show the year before.

Other Australia winners include Harry Redknapp, Vicky Pattison, Stacey Solomon, Giovanna Fletcher, Jacqueline Jossa, Georgia Toffolo, Scarlett Moffatt and Carl Fogarty.
