I'm A Celebrity: Show makes its return with extra-long episodes from Friday

Starting this Friday night (3rd December), I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! episodes are set to be extended to make up for last weekend’s break.

After an unprecedented three days off-air due to Storm Arwen, I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! 2021 finally returned to our screens on Tuesday night. However, many fans were left disappointed that the episode was just one hour and 5 minutes long. Usually, episodes tend to be around an hour and 15 minutes.

But there’s good news as it’s been revealed that starting this Friday (3 December), the rest of this series’ episodes will be extra long. Episodes from this Friday will last one hour and 20 minutes each before being extended even further to one hour and 35 minutes from next Thursday (9 December).

When does I’m A Celeb 2021 run until?

We’re exactly halfway through this year’s run of I’m A Celeb as the final is set to take place on Sunday 12 December. That means we’ve got about a week and a half left - and it won’t be long until campmates start getting eliminated. The vote-offs usually start about a week before the end of the show so we reckon we could see the first elimination on Sunday or Monday.

Who will be eliminated from I’m A Celeb 2021 first?

Anything could happen, but currently the bookies’ favourite to be eliminated first from I’m A Celeb 2021 is Arlene Phillips. She’s followed by Kadeena Cox and Naughty Boy as most likely to get voted out first. Meanwhile, fan favourites David Ginola, Frankie Bridge and Simon Gregson seem to be pretty safe, with the longest odds of being voted out first. David is the current favourite to be named King of the Castle this year.
