The first trailer for the brand new season of I’m A Celebrity….Get Me Out of Here! is here and we are beside ourselves with excitement!

Despite being booted from its usual air date in January for The Bachelors, the show is now just around the corner with an air date of Sunday, April 2nd – just in time for Easter!

”We’re headed back to Africa in 2023! Oh, and we’ll be arriving just in time for Easter so it’s a new time of year but we’re BACK, baby,” the shows official account shared to Instagram.

The series will air on 10 and 10 play on demand for those unable to watch live.

It’s been more than three years since our celebrities were last in the African jungle!

A new trailer for the upcoming season has also been released, and with a few hints as to who exactly is entering the jungle.

The recent promo teases a Brownlow medal winning famous footballer, a comedian, a TV host, a boxing lightweight and a famous chef among the star studded cast, and we can’t wait to see who they turn out to be.

Sunrise weather presenter Sam Mac and Fergie, Duchess of Cornwall have also been tipped to join the cast.

Season nine of the hit reality show will also mark the return to Kruger National Park in South Africa after years of pandemic related travel restrictions.

Whilst not much is yet confirmed, we are sure this will be one epic showdown and make for great television watching some of Australia’s most famous faces go head to head in order to win $100k prize money for their nominated charity.

2022 winner Dylan Lewis donated his prize money to Lifeline whilst 2021 winner Abbie Chatfield donated hers to Dementia Australia.

2023 will be the last year that Dr Chris Brown hosts I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! alongside Julia Morris.

Whilst we don’t know who the contestants are just yet, Julia Morris and Dr Chris Brown will return as hosts for the 2023 series, and they’ve promised an exciting cast.

Excitement aside however, this season will be the last in which Julia and Chris co-host the program with Chris jumping ship to rival network Channel Seven to work on ”exciting” new projects that have yet to be announced.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph about his big network shake-up, Brown said, “I’m not entirely sure my old access pass works but once we get over that hurdle and I’m back from the jungle, I can’t wait to sink my teeth into some exciting new projects in the second half of the year and beyond with Seven.”
