Is it just us or did summer just absolutely fly by in a blur of Love Isand, Big Brother and CBB dramz? But now, with the recent arrival of the 15th series of The X Factor is practically midwinter and we're ready to spend all our evenings huddled up on the sofa with an array of take-away menus at our disposal.

With colder weather creeping in and (dare we say it?) Christmas looming ever closer, it's also time to start thinking about the new series of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!

We know! We've only just gotten over (that Joel Dommett shower scene), too!

The Celebland rumour mill has been turning and there's already been talk of who could be heading to the jungle later this year.

First, though, here's what we no about the new series so far...

When does I'm a Celebrity 2017 start? What's the start date?

Show bosses have reportedly revealed this year's I'm A Celebrity will start on Sunday 19th November.

This is nearly two weeks later than there usual start date, and a week later than last year's . In 2016 things kicked off on 13 November. The final was on Sunday 4 December

Who will be presenting I'm a Celebrity 2017? Will Ant be back?

After the news broke that Ant McPartlin had checked in to rehab earlier this year to battle his alcohol and prescription drug demons, there was a lot of speculation over whether he'd be well enough to host the show.

For a while there was talk of finding a replacement presenter - Holly Willoughby and Cat Deeley were among the rumoured names - however Dec Donnelly insisted he wouldn't host the show withoug Ant.

ITV bosses have since hinted that Ant & Dec WILL be back presenting the show as the double act we know and love.

Who won I'm A Celebrity 2016?

Only self-proclaimed telly binge-watcher Scarlett Moffatt, who beat Joel Dommett and Adam Thomas to jungle royalty. Her career trajectory since has been more eye-wateringly brilliant than Marcel's lap dance in the Love Island villa, with Scarlett now presenting Streetmate. Not bad, eh.
