Carol Vorderman and co look set to be pushed to their limits as the basic camp for I’m A Celebrity All-Stars has been revealed in first look images.

Former Countdown star Vorderman is among the previous I’m A Celebrity contestants heading back into the jungle for another go, along with others including actor Helen Flanagan, supermodel Janice Dickinson, Olympian Fatima Whitbread and cricket star Phil Tufnell.

While the celebs have all braved the jungle before, this time the show is set in South Africa instead of Australia and bosses have said the challenges are “bigger and tougher and the environment harsher and more unforgiving”.

New images show that instead of the usual lush green of the camp, the contestants will be living in dusty conditions in Kruger National Park.

They walk into camp via a long narrow tunnel made up of thick twigs and branches, with only lanterns to light up their path.

Instead of rocks and trees, this year’s camp shower is comprised of dozens of sticks lined up to form a screen.

Hosts Ant and Dec have previously teased that there will be differences between this version and the usual series, with campers competing to become the first ever I'm A Celebrity Legend of the Savannah instead of King or Queen of the Jungle.

Speaking earlier this year, Ant said: “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.”

Excitement is ramping up ahead of the launch of the series, with fans saying they can't wait to see what ITV bosses have in store for the campers.

“Something to look forward to,” one tweeted.
