The Celebs Are Back In The Jungle! But Have You Noticed Something Different This Year...

I'm A Celebrity 2016 Ant and Dec

Ten celebs are now camped out in the jungle which only means one thing - I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here is back!

I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here is back! The celebs are in the jungle, we're about to get a daily dose of Ant and Dec and Christmas is now firmly on the way.

It's also been announced that they're going to be staying at ITV for three more years so we are SUPER thrilled!

But more IMPORTANTLY than that, what did you think about the change that had Twitter going mad last night....?

Ant's beard!

Yep, there was something different about one of our favourite Geordies and that was some jungle-esque looking facial hair. 

It got a few viewers hot under the collar...






And it had some people joking that those who struggle might be able to tell them apart at last!


But there was MUCH more to the first episode of this year's series than a bit of facial hair! The series kicked off with the classic entry challenge in which the celebs were split in half - five 'city celebrities' and five 'jungle celebrities'. 

The city celebs were asked to walk to the end of a plank at the top of a city skyscraper in an attempt to save some of their fellow jungle celebs from the first dreaded bush-tucker trial! 

One of the stars to walk the 300ft high plank was Countdown favourite, Carol Vorderman, who looked pretty wobbly when balanced at the end!


After a tense few minutes, all 'city celebrities' completed the challenge. In the meantime, the 'jungle celebrities' were doing some just as daunting challenges on their way to camp.

Footballer Wayne Bridge, Olympian Sam Quek and TV presenter Lisa Snowden had to skydive out of an aeroplane and release a flare at the correct time before landing on a giant star - pretty hair raising stuff!

In the meantime, Larry Lamb and Scarlett Moffat were canoeing to try and save the 'city celebrities' from bush-tucker terror!

But the whole challenge was comedy gold with Scarlett screaming 'LARRY!' as she failed to steer the canoe in the right direction.

But the 70-year-old actor saved the day by swimming to save Scarlett when she began to sink, and dragged the Gogglebox star back to dry land. 

We think those two need their own spin off show - so adorable!
