I'm A Celebrity is set to launch its first ever all stars spin-off this year, welcoming some of viewers' favourite campmates from the last two decades to a new camp in South Africa.

Hosts Ant and Dec have revealed some new details about the series - including that the rules will be slightly different and that the full series has been filmed in advance, suggesting there will be no viewer voting.

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine, Dec said: "It's a completely different landscape and they're competing to become the first ever I'm A Celebrity Legend of the Savannah."

Ant added: "It's good, and it's slightly different to the show we do in Australia because they go head to head in trials and whoever loses leaves, so it's quite brutal. That's how we decide the winner. We had a lot of fun."

Rumours have been swirling for a while about who is heading back into camp - these are the likely candidates.

The former EastEnder won the show back in 2008, and has the series to thank for his current family life.

He met his now wife Stacey Solomon through I'm A Celebrity as she won the show in 2010, by which time Swash was working as a presenter on the behind-the-scenes spin-off show.

Swash is rumoured to have recently flown out to the South African set of the show and is a favourite with producers.

Phil Tufnell

Ex-cricketer Tufnell was the second ever winner of the show, way back in 2003, so would be a welcome blast from the past for fans if he agreed to sign up.

Tuffers' sense of humour has made him a popular contestant with many a reality TV viewer, who also enjoyed his performances on Strictly Come Dancing in 2009.

He'd be sure to bring plenty of fun to the All Stars camp - but could he retain his champion title?

Myleene Klass

Radio presenter and former Hear'Say singer Klass is one of the series' most famous contestants ever, thanks to scenes of her showering in a white bikini.

The bikini was later auctioned for £7,500 and show bosses are said to be keen to try to recreate the moment with a return to the jungle 16 years on.

However, while Klass is said to be signed up to the show, she might not be jumping back into the shower again.

According to The Sun, she has previously said: “I might have to tuck my boobs in my socks. I’ve breastfed three babies since then.

“It feels like a lifetime ago, and only yesterday. It’s that weird dichotomy. It was a really good time in my life.”

Andy Whyment

The Coronation Street star was one of the most unassuming campmates in 2019, but was a firm favourite with viewers who voted him all the way into the final two.

Now Whyment, who was beaten in his first jungle stint by Jacqueline Jossa, is rumoured to be headed to South Africa for another go at battling bugs.

Viewers know him as the long-running cobbles character Kirk, but fans of I'm A Celebrity loved finding out more about Whyment outside of his soap alter ego and the show's bosses are said to be keen to bring him back again to keep the camp's sense of fun.

Carol Vorderman

The former Countdown star is rumoured to be reprising her stint in camp after first appearing in 2016.

Vorderman has talked about how much she loves being outdoors since being on the show and was popular with viewers for her outspoken opinions and sense of fun.

Richard Madeley

He barely counted as having taken part in the 2021 series as a funny turn resulted in a hospital dash, meaning he'd broken the show's COVID bubble and couldn't return to camp.

Madeley, often likened to comedy character Alan Partridge, was expected to provide plenty of laughs and showbiz anecdotes for camp, so surely producers would jump at the chance to give him another go?

Helen Flanagan

Remembered as one of the show's most dramatic contestants, former Corrie star Flanagan might have been amusing to viewers, but she kicked off many a camp row by refusing trials and leaving campmates to go hungry.

Will Flanagan be a braver contestant the second time around? They'll have a job convincing her to get back into camp, first.

Gillian McKeith

One of the all-time classic campmates and for all the wrong reasons, McKeith would surely be a popular choice with fans of the show.

She will forever be remembered for appearing to fake fainting on live TV as a challenge loomed that she didn't want to take part in, to the frustration of her fed-up co-stars.

Stacey Solomon

TV presenter and former Queen of the Jungle Solomon is rumoured to be eying a second chance at trial triumph.

Her time on the show was before she got together with another of its champions, Joe Swash, but as the pair have two very young children it's unclear whether she would commit to the time away from them.

Paul Burrell

The public's appetite for royal gossip, combined with former Princess Diana butler Burrell's hilarious reactions to the trials, make for I'm A Celebrity gold.

Burrell was an unexpected star of the show when he first took part and would be a hit with fans if he went back into camp.

Georgia Toffolo

She was the surprise winner of the 2017 series - could she make it a double by becoming the All Stars champion?

The former Made In Chelsea star was known during her time in the jungle for her friendship with Boris Johnson's dad Stanley, and for throwing herself into every challenge with gusto.

Now, she's rumoured to be eying another win as part of the South Africa camp.

Jordan Banjo

Diversity dancer and TV presenter Banjo is another name that has come up as a distinct possibility for the All Stars camp.

He first took part in the show in 2016, but viewers might not remember too much about his appearance as he was voted out fourth.

Since then, Banjo has enjoyed some high profile roles including presenting The Greatest Dancer, Eat Well For Less and competing in series one of The Masked Dancer, so he could well find himself going much further in the contest this time.
