Ant and Dec have shared a first picture as they start work on the new series of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

Ant and Dec will be reunited for 2019 after Ant missed last year's show when he took a year out from TV work.

Holly Willoughby stepped in to help co-host alongside Dec but this year the Geordie duo be back alongside one another in the jungle.

Ant and Dec tweeted a snap of them in a meeting for the show this week, writing: "First @imacelebrity meeting of the year.... 🤐 🤐 Finding out what’s in store and this years celebs.... "

According to The Sun newspaper, the pair recently filmed a new promo for the series.

A source shared: “The boys are in a boat which has got lost on the way to Oz, it ends up going through all sorts of different continents and they get bombarded by bad weather, snow, rain, blistering sunshine and everything in between – before finally make their way to Australia in time to host the show."

Ant previously admitted he found it hard to watch last year's show with Holly.

However, he still found out how Dec and Holly got on thanks to an awkward blunder by an ITV executive.

“I’ll tell you a funny story. I told the senior executive at ITV that I’m not going to watch the show because it will be hard for me," he said. "I turned me phone on and a text came through from a senior ITV executive. It just said: ‘Congratulations on a hilarious opening, well done you two. He’d clearly gone to text Holly and Dec but texted me.

"I replied: ‘Funny, I didn’t see it myself.’ But I let Dec know about it. It was funny. I was fine by that point.”

Meanwhile, Ant said about returning for the this year's series: “That was the great thing about Holly. It was a one-year gig. That was the brief, a one-off.

"I was thankful that it was her because she was looking after my mate out there and looking after the show. And she doesn’t need the work — she can’t get off the telly!”

I'm A Celebrity typically launches on ITV in November.

No names have been confirmed for the line up just yet but rumoured celebs include a number of Love Islanders including Olivia Attwood, Maura Higgins and Amy Hart.
