I'm A Celebrity 2012: Ant and Dec (and the celebs!) arrive in Australia!

I'm A Celebrity 2012

I'm A Celebrity kicks off in just a week's time, and hosts Ant and Dec arrived in Australia today to prepare for the celebs!

The duo touched down in Sydney airport this morning and were quick to share the news with their fans.

Dec tweeted: "We're here!! D"

And pal Ant added: "Landed, bags collected, now where's the cab??? A"

The duo will be welcoming the stars to the show this week before they enter camp at the weekend, and this year bosses have lined up some of the cruelest experiences yet for the celebs.

It’s been claimed that producers have brought in more than £40,000 worth of cockroaches and £20,000 worth of rats to be used in this month’s series.

As always, the tough bushtucker trials will be back as the stars battle for stars in order to win food for both themselves and their celebrity campmates.

One of this year’s challenges will be called the Midnight Express, with one unlucky camper being locked into a dark carriage of a train… full of bugs!

Other planned bushtucker trials will include getting a celebrity to become a giant hamster and go running on a giant wheel, while another will see the chosen celebrity having to collect meal stars in an underwater task.

A source said: "There are some really tough trials being put together. It will be the most dramatic ever.”
