We have been itching for I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here to return for so long. It feels like forever since we last watched celebrities dine on creepy crawlies and face stomach-churning challenges that always sent shivers down our spines.

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here returns to ITV on Sunday, November 18, 2018. Let the countdown begin.


I can't quite remember my first family holiday, but as far as I know, in the summer of 1995, my parents hopped on the train to Cork with their one-year-old daughter in tow. It wasn't exactly a glamorous trip but I'm sure every parents first holiday is special, regardless of the location.

It looks like Declan Donnelly and Ali Astall's newborn daughter is about to jet off on the ultimate first holiday. Holly Willoughby revealed her I’m A Celeb co-host will be bringing his baby girl to Australia during the filming of the popular reality show.

Speaking on This Morning, Holly Willoughby gushed: “I can’t wait for snuggles with her. I think she’ going to be coming to Australia as well which is very exciting.”

Ali gave birth to the couple’s first child on Sunday morning. Dec confirmed their daughter’s arrival in a touching Instagram post.

The TV presenter shared a photo of him holding his daughter’s tiny hand. He captioned the snap: “‪Ali and I are thrilled to announce the arrival of our baby girl, Isla Elizabeth Anne, who was born just after 9 o’clock this morning.”

He added: “Mother and daughter both doing well, Dad is head over heels! D x”

Ant McPartlin congratulated his best friend shortly after baby Isla was born. He tweeted: “Welcome to the world baby Isla Elizabeth Anne. Can’t wait for cuddles. I love you already!! Uncle Ant xxxxx”

The new dad is set to head to Australia in the coming weeks to record I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

He will be joined by Holly Willoughby who has stepped in as Ant McPartlin’s replacement as he deals with personal issues.

No official date has been confirmed, but it is understood the show will air in late November and end in December.


It has been confirmed that Holly Willoughby will co-host the upcoming season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

The This Morning presenter replaces Ant McPartlin who has stepped away from the spotlight due to personal issues.

Speaking of her new role, Holly told The Mirror: “I couldn’t be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure.”

Holly has been friends with both Ant and Dec for many years, with the presenters making their break in the entertainment industry around the same time.

The presenter sent her well wishes to Ant who is currently dealing with alcohol and personal issues.

"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,” she said.

The host gushed about the reality show, admitting that she is a huge fan. “I feel like I’ve won a competition to go and hang out on my favourite show! When is it a good time to tell Dec I’m scared of everything that moves."

Holly’s co-host Declan Donnelly said: “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.”

We cannot wait to see Holly present the show alongside Declan Donnelly. There’s no doubt she’ll do a stellar job.


Television presenter and one half of the comedy duo Ant and Dec, Declan Donnelly married his fiancé Ali Astall in Newcastle earlier today 

The pair were all smiles for the crowsds that gathered to wish them well as they emerged from St. Micheal's Roman Catholic Church in Elswick, Newcastle. 

They stepped out hand in hand and shared a romantic kiss beneath the church's arched doorway. The lavish flowers that decorated the arch were admired by the hundreds of fans that had come along to celebrate the couple's big day. 

39-year old Declan arrived at the ceremony in a very fancy Aston Matin Vanquish Carbon and was driven by best man Ant McPartlin. The pair were setting some serious BFF goals today as they wore matching suits to the big event. The bright blue colour went very nicely with their dark shades as the sun came out much to everyone's delight.

Ali, 36, is also Dec's manager. She arrived via Rolls Royce in a stunning ivory gown with an open back complimented with simple veil. She certainly turned heads in her beautiful dress as she stopped outside to give a wave to those waiting for a glimpse of the pair on their way into the ceremony. 

Dec's older brother Dermott officiated the ceremony, which took place in the same church that their grandfather Alphonsus' funeral took place in previously. 

Among those fans in the crowd were some that had travelled quite a long way hoping to spot some of the many celebs on their way to the ceremony. 65-year old Sheena Greeves travelled from Scotland and told The Mirror:

"I'm from Derry where his mammy and daddy are from. We came from Scotland, my grandson wants to be little Dec. We're big fans."

Other famous faces expected to be at the wedding today included Tess Daly, Vernon Kay, Fearne Cotton, Holly Willoughby, Leigh Francis, former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, Philip Schofield, Paddy McGuinness and Andi Peters. Quite the guest list!

Congratulations to the happy couple. 



We've had a soft spot for Ant and Dec ever since their SMTV days, so we can't help feeling all warm and fuzzy inside when one of them has good news to share!

Declan Donnelly, one half of the famous presenting duo, popped the question to girlfriend Ali Astall over the weekend…. and she said yes!

The couple are Australia as Ant and Dec prepare for the new series of I'm A Celebrity… so no doubt there were lots of excited phone calls made to family back home!

Ali has joined her man for his month-long stay Down Under.

39-year-old Dec has been seeing his fiancée for a year and a half, and is apparently "head over heels in love," according to a friend. "Dec soon realised that the he’d met the girl he wanted to spend the rest of his life with and felt ready to settle down," the insider revealed.

The pair are old friends – Ali has been the presenting duo's talent manager for over a decade. Wow! 

Speaking about the relationship earlier this year, Dec admitted there had always been a great connection between them both.  "I think we’ve always been attracted to each other but it has always been that thing of we work together," he said. 

"This is the first time we’ve given it a try."

Ali has already moved into the presenter's London home, and the couple even have a dog together.

Despite having only been engaged for a few days, the lovebirds have already started thinking about a wedding date. "They’re keen to start a family and want to get hitched next year," said the source.

Best buddy Ant, who married his partner Lisa Armstrong back in 2006, is set to be the best man. We wonder if they'll whip out one of their old PJ and Duncan routines at the wedding reception!
