We watched them conquer their fears, tackle tucker trials, spill their guts and often eat some too but what are our fave celebs up to after surviving South Africa?
For most, life post-jungle has meant more time on our televisions and radio roles but for a certain few, a mouth-full of scoffing beetles now seems like a breeze.
One celeb has even come clean and confessed to cheating their way to the crown.
As we countdown to the 2023 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Australia, which premieres on Sunday April 2nd, we check in with some of your all-time favourite stars of the jungle to see what they’ve been up to!
The English cricket team may not have many fans in Australia, but their former cricket captain, Freddie Flintoff, managed to win over plenty of hearts.
Entering the jungle in season one as an intruder, the charming Brit ended up taking home the crown.
Almost eight years later however, he revealed on BBC Radio 5 Live’s podcast that he cheated! Freddie confessed he told the show’s producers he was a smoker.
As smoking is prohibited on Australian TV, anyone wanting a cigarette would have to leave the set.
“They asked me how many I wanted a day so I said five knowing I’d have to do it off screen,” he revealed.
“I’d walk out the gate and there’d be a chair with a cigarette that I didn’t have, I just sat and had some peace to myself, not filmed and in nobody’s hearing.”
Since retiring from professional cricket in 2009, Freddie has starred on several TV projects including as one of the hosts of BBC’s Top Gear.
Self-proclaimed ‘acid-tongued prince’ and comedian Joel Creasey was sure to be hit with I’m A Celeb fans thanks to his cheeky and unapologetic attitude.
After placing fourth in the show’s first season in 2015, Joel has kept busy, popping up on our TV screens on countless occasions.
As well as performing shows around the world the comedian hosted SBS’s broadcast of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade, the Eurovision Song Contest with Myf Warhurst and played Cupid to some sexy singles on dating show, Take Me Out.
He currently hosts Nova’s afternoon radio show alongside Kate Ritchie and Tim Blackwell.
If anyone was going to ruffle feathers in the jungle it was Steve Price.
The shock jock caused quite the stir with his bold opinions but he also had his moments, including being brought to tears by a letter from home.
He currently makes guest appearances on The Project and is a columnist for the Herald Sun, Sky News Paul Murray program and the Sharri Markson show.
2018 Queen of the jungle, Fiona O’Loughlin not only won I’m a Celebrity but also the hearts of the nation.
The comedian’s complete honesty about her struggle with alcohol – including a two and half week stint in a coma – as well as her failed suicide attempt, was a breath of fresh air for the public.
After taking home the crown, Fiona has been on tour around the country as well as making various TV appearances. She also spends her time being a doting grandmother to her adorable grandchildren.
From her time on Neighbours as villain Izzy Hoyland to her electro-rock tunes as part of band, Rogue Traders, Nat has long been loved by Aussie fans.
And her time in the jungle was no different.
The always chipper camp-mate came third in season three of I’m A Celeb.
Things haven’t slowed since, with the actress, singer and presenter reprising her role on Neighbours for a short time as well as making several other TV appearances.
She went on to star in Tony and Grammy Award winning jukebox musical Jagged Little Pill – inspired by Alanis Morissette’s hit nineties album.
After a string of high profile scandals led to his AFL career coming to an abrupt end, Brendan Fevola, took to the jungle to turn his image around.
The former Carlton and Brisbane Lions player opened up while on the show about his reasons for joining the cast.
“There’s a lot of people that dislike myself because of my own actions. When I was younger and immature, I did a few things wrong and threw away my footy career.”
“Now that I’m a bit older and I’ve got three young daughters, I want everyone to not taint them with the same brush. Especially Alex — when they associate me, they associate her, and it’s not fair.”
It seemed to work, with Fevola winning over the public and going on to a career in radio with the Fifi, Fev and Byron show. He and wife Alex are proud parents to four daughters.
Casey first skyrocketed to fame at just 16-years-old after winning Australian Idol.
After which however, she all but disappeared from the limelight. That is until she entered the jungle in 2017 where she once again won over Australia.
The singer famously opened up about a six year relationship she had with a man named Campbell, who she eventually discovered never existed but was part of a catfish scheme.
Life after her second reality TV stint has done Casey wonders, she proved her acting chops in shows Black Comedy, Street Smart and How To Stay Married as well as the stage musical 9 to 5.
It seems Shannon Noll is destined for the silver medal. Rising to fame after coming runner up on Australian Idol, the Aussie singer also came in second place to Fiona O’Loughlin on I’m A Celeb’s fourth season.
Shannon famously opened up on the show about the difficulties he endured trying to keep his family farm running after his time on Idol.
Life post-jungle has been a roller-coaster for the singer, who appeared in court and pleaded guilty for cocaine possession.
He also welcomed baby boy Colton in December 2018 with wife Rochelle, after being told he could never father again.
With his booming voice and infectious smile, you can’t not love Miguel!
