I’m a Celebrity will kick off in the new year, with the series to start on January 3, 2022, on 10 and 10 play on demand.

“Trials? Check. Screaming Celebs? Check. Jan 3? You better believe it,” the network’s Instagram page announced.

A new trailer for the upcoming season has also been released, and with a few hints as to who exactly is entering the jungle.

The recent promo teases a comedian, footballer, country singer, beauty queen and famous chef among the star-studded cast, and we can’t wait to see who they turn out to be.

While we don’t know who the contestants are just yet, Julia Morris and Dr Chris Brown will return as hosts for the 2022 series, and they’ve promised an exciting cast.

“January 3 @imacelebrityau is back! My beloved Docteur & I always deliver a brilliant cast… so that’s a given,” Julia penned on Instagram.

“See you for an epic series @drchrisbrown jx.”

When it was confirmed at Ten’s upfronts that the series will return for its eighth season, Julia also spoke a little more about what we can expect to see.

“The Doctor and I had an absolute ball doing the show in Australia last season and we can’t wait to hack our way back into the so-called jungle in 2022,” she said.

“Everyone is going to love our latest bunch of camp mates! I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! is the perfect show for summer.

“Expect loads of laughs, a few tears, some mind-blowing surprises and the most insane challenges ever seen on Australian TV.”

And if previous seasons are anything to go by, it will be an exciting one ahead – for viewers at least.

For the show’s seventh season, we saw several celebs battle it out in the so called jungle, until Abbie Chatfield was eventually crowned Queen of the jungle.

The show was also filmed in Australia, instead of its usual South African location due to international travel restrictions, which will be the case for this season too.

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! premieres on January 3, 2022, on 10 and 10 play on demand.
