If you're getting ready to re-enter the I'm a Celebrity jungle in the show's new spin-off series, think again - this time, the celebs will be camping in the South African savanna.


That's not the only twist in store for this new version of the format, as all of the campmates will be famous faces to have previously appeared on the original show.

Meanwhile, a "brutal format twist" will see the contestants go head-to-head at terrifying trials until only one celebrity is left standing.

Among those returning are boxer Amir Khan, Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan and Countdown icon Carol Vorderman, as we as American model and television personality Janice Dickinson.

Dickinson previously appeared on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! in 2007, and finished the season as runner-up to Christopher Biggins. But could she go all the way and take the title this time?

Janice Dickinson is a model, television personality and businesswoman. She's well known in the modelling industry and has described herself as the "first supermodel" on many occasions.

She was one of the most successful models of the 1970s and 1980s, and also served as a judge on America's Next Top Model for four seasons between 2003 and 2006.

In 2007, she took part in the seventh season of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, and finished runner-up to actor Christopher Biggins.

Reflecting on the trials, Janice commented: "I wasn't fearless doing the Trials in Australia but I always gave it a good shot except when they wanted me to drink something. I said, 'No way, yuck, I can't eat or drink something I can't stomach.'"

Janice Dickinson hopes to have more fun on I'm A Celebrity... South Africa, saying: "I’m coming back for more fun, more camaraderie and to see if I can get along with everyone."

She continued: "I honestly don't know what to expect. I know it's lots of different celebrities from all over the years. I've been to South Africa before, Cape Town and Johannesburg, when I was a model. This will be a new experience for me."

One thing Janice isn't looking forward to, however, is the creepy crawlies, adding: "If in South Africa there's bigger snakes and spiders than I saw in Australia then there must be something prehistoric going on as they were huge in Australia."

I’m a Celebrity South Africa starts on Monday 24th April on ITV1 and ITVX. Check out our TV Guide and Streaming Guide, or visit our dedicated Entertainment hub for the latest news.
