I’m A Celebrity 2019 Starts Soon As Stars Land Australia


on - Ian

This year’s series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and ITV bosses have been hard at work behind the scenes roping in the biggest and best stars.

And with the phenomenal success of last year’s show – hosted temporarily by Holly Willoughby (who was standing in for Ant McPartlin) and Dec Donnelly – the 2019 series is set to be better than ever with the jungle reunion of Ant and Dec.

From the looks of things, the line-up will be a cracker.

The stars have already started arriving in Australia, and they’re jetting in from all over the world.

This year’s line-up is even rumoured to include the highest-paid star ever, with them said to be commanding a fee of £500,000.

Here’s who has landed so far, and who is still expected to arrive…

Ian was the first star to jet into Australia for this year’s show.

The former footballer star turned pundit is already the bookies’ favourite to win, with Ladbrokes offering odds of 5-2 that he’ll be crowned King of the Jungle.

And he’s laughed off reigning King Harry Redknapp’s comments that his temper could get him in trouble.

Told of Harry’s comments after touching down in Brisbane, he said: “Was Harry doing one of those tours where he’s talking? He’s got to fill it up hasn’t he?

“The thing is, we play golf but I didn’t lose my rag.

“What’s he on about talking about losing my rag? I don’t lose my rag anymore.

“I’m much older and wiser. To be honest, nothing gets me angry anymore. I’ve been looking forward to this for so long.”

Caitlyn Jenner has touched down in Australia, amid reports she’s commanding the biggest fee in the show’s history – a whopping £500,000.

Asked if she was excited to be taking part in the show, Caitlyn said: “Yeah.”

But she declined to answer further questions about whether any members of her family would be joining her or if she wanted to win and then got into a waiting car.

On Sunday, reports said Caitlyn won’t be talking about anything her gender reassignment in camp.

Caitlyn – formerly Olympic gold medallist Bruce Jenner – had gender reassignment surgery in 2017, two years after announcing she was transgender.

But she says: “It is not something I talk about. Yes, I had gender confirmation and that for me was important.

“For many trans people it is not important to them. But for me it was.

“Femininity and womanhood is in your brain and in your soul. That is the issue.

“It is not what is between your legs. So yes, I had it done. But that is all out of respect to me, my privacy but also respect to the community. It is really not something you talk about.”

The 44-year-old touched down at Brisbane Airport in the early hours of Monday morning local time having flown in from the UK via Dubai.

As well as doing stand up, the 44-year-old is best known for being the narrator of Ex-On The Beach.

After landing he told photographers he wouldn’t take his sunglasses off as “no one will know who I am anyway”.

Asked about what he was scared of he said: “Snakes but I am going to fight them.

“We don’t have snakes in Ireland and you should never trust an animal without shoulders who can’t shrug.”
