'I'm A Celebrity...South Africa' will launch on 24 April.

The reality TV spin-off - which has already been recorded and will see a host of former 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' contestants embark on a new adventure - will air weeknights on ITV1 for three weeks, The Sun newspaper reports.

However, ITV have yet to confirm the start date so it is subject to change.

Last weekend, hosts Ant and Dec revealed the nine stars who will be kicking off the show during 'Saturday Night Takeaway'.

The line-up for the show includes boxer Amir Khan, model Janice Dickinson and TV star Jordan Banjo.

Amir, 36 - who starred on 'I'm A Celebrity' in 2017 - is already looking forward to the challenge.

He said: "['I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!'] helped me overcome my phobia of spiders and snakes. It also made me tougher as a person and I’m determined this time not to be soft when it comes to the trials!"

Soap star Helen Flanagan, TV presenter Carol Vorderman and Olympic athlete Fatima Whitbread will also appear on the show.

Helen, 32 - who entered the camp in 2012 - admitted that she's already feeling a bit "scared".

The actress said: "I am not saying I am going to go in and be a jungle warrior and be absolutely amazing because I will not. Yes, I will be scared, but I will have a go and I will be a lot better than last time!"

The line-up for the series also includes Paul Burrell, the former royal butler, ex-England cricketer Phil Tufnell and Happy Mondays star Shaun Ryder.

It is believed other former campmates will also be involved with the programme.
