When asked if he was looking forward to starting the show, Ant replied: “Yes, of course”, before he and Dec jumped into a waiting car – with the TV presenters tweeting that they had landed from their joint Twitter account.

After Ant entered rehab for an addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs in June there was concern that he will not be well enough to host the ITV reality show.

Promotional filming featuring Ant and Dec was postponed on more than one occasion, leaving fans fearing that Ant would be forced to give this year’s I’m A Celeb a miss, however, the star is fighting fit and ready to make his TV return.

After completing rehab Ant continued with his recovery in Los Angeles and when he returned to London earlier this month it was reported that his 23-year relationship with wife Lisa Armstrong is on the rocks.

The Geordie star was said to be living “streets away” from their shared London home, with Lisa also being spotted without her wedding ring on.

However, since the report broke both Ant and Lisa have been wearing their rings.

As well as Ant and Dec a host of famous faces have touched down in Australia ahead of I’m A Celeb’s launch on 19 November, including The Saturdays’ Vanessa White, Made In Chelsea’s Georgia Toffolo, actor Jamie Lomas, footie hardman Dennis Wise and YouTuber Jack Maynard.
