The all-star line-up for I’m A Celebrity… South Africa has been announced, with some massive Manchester celebs taking part.

The brand new show is due to air in April and will see some of the series’ most memorable campmates heading to a new setting in South Africa.

Names involved include Bolton-born boxing legend Amir Khan, Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan, and Happy Mondays legend Shaun Ryder.

And that’s just part of the first wave of celebrity contestants – more famous faces will take part in I’m A Celebrity… South Africa, entering the camp as the series goes on.

The new series will ‘push them to their limits and test them like never before’, ITV has said, promising bigger and tougher challenges and an even harsher environment.


Also taking part from the launch episode will be Diversity star Jordan Banjo, TV presenter Carol Vorderman, Olympian Fatima Whitbread, former royal butler Paul Burrell, ex-England cricketer Phil Tufnell, and supermodel Janice Dickinson.

ITV said: “Whilst nodding back to the Australian jungle, I’m A Celebrity…South Africa is a uniquely different series so viewers can look forward to lots of unexpected twists and turns.”

Campmates will compete to be crowned the first ever I’m A Celebrity Legend – but unlike the original series, there’ll be no public vote.

In a trailer released this weekend, Shaun Ryder said: “I wonder who’s crackers enough to do it again.”

The trailer also shows the celebs taking part in pre-recorded challenges, taking on everything from nasty food to terrifying heights.


I’m A Celebrity… South Africa will air on ITV1 and ITVX from April 2023.
