“The normal show will be filmed in Australia as planned, unless COVID makes it impossible again. The South African project is in no way a back-up, it’s a completely different series.
“It will see all of the iconic names who have made the show so popular over the years return to the campfire and battle it out to be crowned the Best Of champion.
“There are so many to choose from and they’re sounding out the most talked-about ones now.
“Ant and Dec will host all three series as normal, and the South African version will still be based in the world of I’m A Celeb.
“The camp mates will be doing trials and living in the camp environment, but with fresh and exciting new twists on the format.
The campmates will have a hand in their own destiny through a series of internal votes and challenges.
“This new edition is likely to air in 2023 but before that viewers will get to enjoy the show's much anticipated return to Australia in November.”
