Is it Sunday evening yet?
They’re telly’s best double act, and this coming weekend will see Ant and Dec back doing what they do so well. Yep, it’s that time of year again, with the SEVENTEENTH series of I’m a Celebrity…Get me Out Of Here! launching this Sunday.
The two besties announced that they’ve landed in Australia with a simple, cheeky one-word tweet saying “G’day.”

Their arrival in Australia marks the first time that the duo will work together since Ant McPartlin, 41, revealed that he was seeking professional treatment for "prescription drugs and alcohol" issues earlier in the year.
Speaking for the first time since his friend’s problems were revealed, Declan Donnelly, 42, told The Mirror: “We’re really excited. We’ll have the same old shenanigans on I’m a Celebrity but with a few little added twists..”
He continued: “We just can’t wait to get in and get going now. We’ve been waiting for ages. It’s been a long summer break so we can’t wait.”
Asked about being apart from Ant during the stint in rehab, Dec said: “I’m looking forward to spending more time with him, yeah. It’s brilliant to be back together – it’s perfect. Everything slots back into place. We can’t wait and we are raring to go.”

It’s great to hear that Dec is so pleased to have his best mate back by his side ready to entertain us. Ant is also chomping at the bit, saying: “I’m excited to be back – I can’t wait. I’m feeling great. The flight was all right... and me and Dec had a good catch-up. It’s going to be a good show.”
We can’t wait to hear the jungle banter between the Geordie duo – who have been in the business for 25 years. Some of the confirmed celebs in the camp this year include boxer Amir Khan; former MP Stanley Johnson; ex-Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas and Corrie’s Jennie McAlpine. Let the games begin!
I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! kicks off on Sunday, November 19th at 9pm on ITV.
