The countdown is 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 the show will return to our TVs in 2018 with what will be the eighteenth(!) series of I’m A Celebrity in mid November.

When does I’m A Celebrity start?

ITV has now confirmed the air date for I’m A Celebrity this year with the series starting at 9PM on Sunday, November 18.

The show will then continue nightly as usual, typically airing for around three weeks.

This year will see some changes to the presenting line up with Ant and Dec not hosting together.

Ant stepped down from TV commitments earlier this year until 2019 after seeking treatment in rehab.

As a result, Regular This Morning host Holly Willoughby will join Dec.


She said: “I couldn’t be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure. I love Ant and want to send him my best wishes and support for a continued recovery. These are big shoes, not to fill, but just to keep warm for a little bit… ”

Dec added: “I am hugely grateful to Holly for agreeing to accompany me to Australia this year. She was at the top of my list and I’m thrilled she said yes. It will be a different kind of series but we will try our best to ensure it is no less fun and eventful for our loyal viewers.”
