However, Saturday night’s broadcast will be looking slightly different this year, with I’m A Celebrity 2020 airing a weekly round-up in place of a regular episode.

The weekly episode will showcase “the very best of the camp action from that week including unseen footage”, ITV has confirmed.

The I’m a Celebrity 2020 lineup was revealed on Sunday during A Jungle Story, a special which looked back on the last 18 years of the reality series.

ITV announced that presenter Vernon Kay, broadcaster Victoria Derbyshire, EastEnders star Shane Ritchie and former Strictly Come Dancing professional AJ Pritchard are among those taking part in this year’s shows, which will see the celebrities camping out in a Welsh castle due to the coronavirus pandemic.

They’ll be joined by Radio 1 DJ Jordan North, Paralympic Gold Medallist Hollie Arnold MBE, Coronation Street’s Beverley Callard, author Giovanna Fletcher, Olympic legend Sir Mo Farah and EastEnders star Jessica Plummer.

Filming for the upcoming series is set to take place at the historic Gwrych Castle in Abergele (North Wales), a grade I listed building with 250 acres of gardens and ground.
