I’m A Celeb host Declan Donnelly lands in Australia with son ahead of new series

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here host Declan Donnelly has landed in Australia ahead of the launch of the new season of the show.

The popular TV presenter was seen walking through the arrivals lounge with his baby son Jack attached to his front in a sling.

Declan, 47, will join co-host Ant McPartlin in Australia's Gold Coast as they prepare to get started with the first season of I'm A Celeb to take place in Australia since 2019.

Ant, 46, is already Down Under, taking time to enjoy the scenery and indulge in a few lavish shopping trips with wife Anne-Marie.

Meanwhile, the first contestants have also been seen arriving in Australia, with radio host Chris Moyles, former Love Island star Olivia Attwood, Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner and Coronation Street's Sue Cleaver all jetting in.

The series is expected to kick off in just over 10 days with a reported launch date of November 6 – allowing time for the show to complete before the World Cup kicks off in Qatar later in the month.

Olivia, 31, has already admitted she is "bound to get herself in trouble" on the show with fans looking forward to seeing her antics in the jungle after she promised she would deliver a treat in the jungle shower.

She said: "If I can get in that jungle I will get in the shower. My friends and family have always wanted me to do this show so let's see how it goes. I love Ant and Dec, I have grown up watching them. They are British TV Icons."

Viewers are looking forward to seeing the production return to the Aussie outback after relocating to Gwrych Castle in Wales for the last two years due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The celebrities will now begin a period of isolation before the show kicks off to ensure there are no issues related to the virus prior to launch night.

A source told the Daily Mirror: “The celebs normally arrive over a four or five-day period and some come in just a day or two before filming and are still a bit jetlagged in camp.

"But there is none of that happening this year, everyone will be here a week before they get into camp and some are coming out 10 days before.”
