We’re officially closer to I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!2021 than we are to last year’s series and the rumours about this year’s potential campmates are gathering force. Rumoured celebs include Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall, Bake Off’s Nadiya Hussain and The One Show’s Matt Baker.

RuPaul’s Drag Race star The Vivienne has also revealed that she’d love to give I’m A Celeb a go, saying:
I'm petrified of spiders but get me to that jungle, I'd do it. What a great life opportunity that I'm never going to get again... I am all for that!
She’d certainly bring some glamour to the camp!
Will I’m A Celeb 2021 be in Wales or Australia?
It’s still not clear whether I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! 2021 will take place Down Under as it usually does or whether it will remain in Wales for a second year as a result of the pandemic. Australia currently still has heavy border restrictions in place which could put the show in jeopardy.
However, it sounds like ITV are still aiming to return to Australia this year. ITV chief exec Dame Carolyn McCall said back in March:
If we can go back to Australia—and this show is meant to be in Australia—then that's what we'll do. We have a very good plan if not, as we have already done it once.
For their part, presenters Ant and Dec have admitted they wouldn’t mind staying in Wales despite the weather. Dec said:
The people in Wales were lovely. They made us feel very welcome. I had a lovely time... I'd love to go back to Oz. But if we had to go back to Wales, I wouldn't be disappointed.
