The countdown almost on until I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is back on TV this year but when does it start?

We know that Ant and Dec will return to our TVs in 2016 with what will be the sixteenth(!) series of I'm A Celebrity in around November time.

When does I'm A Celebrity begin?

The precise launch date hasn't been confirmed just yet but based on most of the recent series, which have launched on the second Sunday of the month, November 13 would look the most likely return date for I'm A Celeb.

As for who could be on the I'm A Celebrity 2016 line up, no names are confirmed just yet but we've got a LOT of rumours.

Most recently, American actress Ayda Field - who is married to Robbie Williams - has been linked to the cast of celebrities taking part in the new series later this year.

According to Heat magazine, the Loose Women guest panellist could be able to get a BIG fee if she agrees to take part.

"ITV bosses are willing to pay out six figures," an insider claimed to the publication. "Ayda hasn't turned it down yet, so they're still hopeful."

Alongside Ayda, names linked to the line up include Craig Charles, who appeared briefly in a previous series, Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt, footballer Robbie Savage and ex Stirctly pros Aliona Vilani and Ola Jordan.

More rumoured celebrities include Olympic Boxer Nicola Adams, Olympic gymnast Louis Smith, Absolutely Fabulous' Helen Lederer and a range of soap stars including Neighbours' Olympia Valance and Emmerdale's Fiona Wade and Adam Thomas.

Meanwhile, it's been claimed that ITV have 'banned' reality stars from the new I'm A Celebrity line up.

It's been suggested that producers want more "credible" names for this autumn's show and plan to follow in the footsteps of Strictly Come Dancing, which rarely features 'celebs' from such shows.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “This year I’m A Celeb . . . wants to go back to its roots by signing up more cult favourites from the past and current, newsworthy personnel.

"The last series got a ribbing for having so many reality show stars and giving them lots of camera time."
