Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly will return to host the new series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! later this month.

I'm A Celebrity 2021's start date has been confirmed as November 21.

This is according to sources who revealed that the hit ITV reality show will return to Gwrych Castle in a matter of weeks.

According to the Mirror, the show – which will be entering the 21st series – will kick off on the third Sunday of November, with a host of famous faces making their way into the North Wales castle.

This news comes a matter of weeks after Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly starred in the latest trailer for the new series of I'm A Celebrity.

The show, which is usually held in the Australian jungle, will return to the ruined castle in North Wales for a second year running due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Last year, it was Giovanna Fletcher who became the Queen of the Castle after winning the 20th series of the show.
