Kerry Katona. Katie Price. Gillian McKeith. Caitlyn Jenner. Scarlett Moffatt. Stacey Solomon. No one can say that I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! producers haven't pulled it out of the bag over the years. Even in the midst of a global pandemic they managed to make the show work in windy Wales and STILL walk away with outrageously high viewing figures.

Year after year ITV entices us back for more with a fresh line-up of daring celebs willing to risk it all for an extra portion of rice and beans (and maybe a mild career boost). And with this year's line-up announcement just around the corner – and the rumours flying in – we couldn't imagine being any more excited about I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here.

That is, of course, until we learned that those I'm A Celeb production wizards have been secretly working on an ICONS ONLY All Stars spin-off behind the curtain. And the line-up has just been revealed as the celebs were seen returning to the UK from South Africa, where the series was filmed.

With 15 celebs (I'm A Celeb's largest ever line-up), from reality star legends, to soap royalty, to sporting gods (we think – less our bag, tbh), this is set to be a game changer of a series.

The spin-off, which will be hosted by veterans Ant McPartlin, 46, and Declan Donnelly, 47, has reportedly already been filmed in South Africa (the all-star cast has just touched down in the UK) and is set to air sometime next year.

A show source told The Sun, "It's a different format to Australia, who knows when and where celebrities will enter camp, literally anything could happen.

"It's not clear how many will start in camp or how many will be there by the end when one is crowned King or Queen of the jungle, possibly for a second time.

"It's the best of I'm A Celebrity, quite literally, but there's some twists and surprises along the way for viewers and campers so it's not going to be as straightforward as they might think."

So, let's see who ITV have assembled for this showdown of showdowns, shall we?

Princess Diana's former butler Paul Burrell is expected to spill some serious royal secrets round the campfire on the All Stars series. A TV insider added, "His facial expressions during the Bushtucker Challenge have gone down in the jungle’s history books."

Legends only, indeed. The former supermodel and unpredictable America's Next Top Model judge Janice Dickinson, who took part in the 2007 series of the ITV series in Australia, is expected to ruffle a fair few feathers in camp (once again). We wouldn't have her any other way.

Corrie's Helen Flanagan aka Rosie Webster is back! The soap star first entered the camp ten years ago in 2012 and, frankly, it's been a sad, lonely ten years without her and infectious personality on our screens.

It makes sense, really - EastEnders characters LOVE a comeback, almost as much as they love a TRAGIC af Christmas, so why not get Dean Gaffney aka Robbie Jackson back for more rat baths and kangaroo testicles? Dean came in fifth place on the 2006 series. A source told The Sun, “Dean is regarded as one of the best contestants the show has ever had. When the All Stars show was first mooted he was a name that everyone wanted to get on board."

Former British boxing superstar Amir Khan returns for round two after his I'm A Celeb debut back 2018 - in which he became one of the highest-paid contestants. ITV reportedly paid £400,000 to secure him for his last appearance, so no doubt the All Star fee is going to be hefty.

I'm A Celeb's Myleene Klass – often called the show's "sexiest ever" contestant – is once again ditching M&S clothing and grand pianos for another round of beans and Bush Tucker trials.

Happy Monday's legend and Gogglebox star Shaun Ryder is back for more...despite branding his 2010 show result as 'rigged'. He lost out to Queen of the Jungle and our hearts, Stacey Solomon.

Speaking of Stacey, Mr Solomon, Joe Swash is back for more. Apparently one crown wasn't enough? Joe went on to host I'm A Celeb's sister show for decade from 2009.

Yep, five years age Georgia Toffolo aka 'Toff' famously became Queen of the Jungle (and infamously became bezzie mates with Boris Johnson's dad, Stanley, who is now 81). This summer, a source told The Sun that Georgia was set to make a spectacular return to the show in South Africa and is expected to make a LOT more money from her appearance this time around.

Spin-bowler turned cricket pundit Phil Tufnell – dubbed 'The Cat' by his sporty pals – was coronated King of the Jungle way back in 2003.

We've done the maths and we can confirm that Carol Vordermon is back for a second go at I'm A Celeb, first appearing on the show in 2016, alongside Joel Dommett (remember THOSE chats?) and winner Scarlett Moffatt.

Legendary javelin thrower Fatima Whitbread is back for round two. Fatima first starred on I'm A Celeb in 2011 and came in third place. She famously got a cockroach stuck up her nose back in the Jungle and, frankly, we're still not over it; another iconic moment for Medic Bob.

They really couldn't throw an I'm A Celeb All Stars without Andrew Whyment, could they? It makes the whole name redundant. The Coronation Street star returns to the popular ITV series just three years after finishing second to Jacqueline Jossa in 2019. We don't want to declare favourites, but...unless Gillian faints again, then we're all hers. We're not even kidding.

Is I'm A Celeb returning to Australia this year?

For the All Stars series? No - that's already been filmed in South Africa. For the regular series? Yes. Last month, ITV reminded us that I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! shenanigans (like munching on kangaroo testicles and bathing in rats bigger than your head) are right around the corner.

In 2020, the location of the hit ITV show was moved to Gwrych Castle in Wales because of the pandemic, and even though we were a little sceptical of the new exotic location (who could forget the campmates being REMOVED from the castle because of a storm in 2021), we still managed to get our fix.

But now, it appears that nature is truly healing in this post-pandemic world of ours, as ITV has confirmed (in that aforementioned email) that I'm a Celeb will indeed be returning to Australia for 2022.

TV confirmed that its hit show would indeed be returning to its OG home in Australia after a two-year hiatus.

They said, "Our celebrities will leave their plush pads and luxuries far behind as they spend up to three weeks taking on the Australian jungle with a whole host of surprises created just for them."

I'm A Celeb 2022: when does it start?

Officially, all ITV are telling us is that I'm A Celebrity is returning "this Autumn". However, the series is expected to be kicking off this November (some outlets are reporting that the premiere will be on Sunday 13 November, although it could begin on 20 November), which means this year's celebs know who they are and their unveiling is imminent.

2022 will mark the 20th anniversary of the iconic reality show.
