Filmed in Australia with presenters Ant and Dec who are also the hosts of Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway on ITV Choice, the programme which is the United Kingdom's biggest reality show with an average viewership of 10 million, gathers a gaggle of personalities to battle it out in various challenges in the jungle to see who will be crowned king or queen of the jungle.

ITV Choice will broadcast the 15th season of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! showing a new episode daily and within 2 days after its UK transmission from 17 November, Mondays to Fridays at 21:00 and at 20:00 on Saturdays and Sundays.

A massive 21 hour long and an hour and a half hour episodes will unspool daily from 17 November on ITV Choice on DStv.

The hit reality show which has not yet announced the celebrity line-up for the new 15th season, drop the celebrities in a remote part of Australia where personality clashes abound between the assortment of performers, sport stars, presenters and politicians as they tackle their daily challenge called a Bushtucker Trial.

Ant and Dec have already been spotted with shaggy beards for this season dressed up like castaways while shooting a new promo, while the name of the drunk Hollyoaks star Stephanie Davis has leaked

In I'm a Celebrity as the shorthand version of the reality show is known as, the contestants have to do things like eat live insects (the show was famously accused of animal cruelty), have cockroaches crawl over them and enter a swamp full of crocodiles.
