I’m A Celebrity host Ant McPartlin weighs in on 2023 line-up
Ant and Dec share I’m A Celeb behind-the-scenes clip
Ant McPartlin has shared his thoughts on the rumoured I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! 2023 line-up after landing in Australia.
The TV presenter, 47, has headed to the Gold Coast, touching down at Brisbane Airport one week before the ITV show returns to screens.
This year’s star-studded “line-up” has sent fans into meltdown already with some big names tipped to appear.
It is said to include Nigel Farage, Britney Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn, Marvin Humes and This Morning’s Josie Gibson.
Weighing in, Ant said: “It’s a great cast.”

Speaking to The Sun, he continued: “I’m really excited.”
Referring to Nigel Farage’s signing, he added: “A political figure in the cast last year was great so this year’s series, it’s very strong, really strong.”
Arriving in the Great Southern Land, Ant looked well-rested and ready for action.
Although he arrived without his wife Anne-Marie, it comes hot on the heels of co-host Declan Donnelly.

Ant was looking to seeing Dec, 48, after he arrived earlier to enjoy a family holiday.
The former quipped: “It’ll be nice to be reunited with Dec, he’s been on his holidays. It’ll be nice to see Dec’s white lines and tan marks!
“We will run towards each on the beach with open arms.”
Dec was seen grinning as he was pictured alongside his wife and children.
Despite dodging the downpour, Dec was casually dressed as he was spotted out on a stroll with wife Ali Astall, 44.
The pair checked in to their favourite spot on the Gold Coast, Cabarita Beach which overlooks breathtaking views and its famous soft white sand.
They married back in 2015 and are the proud parents to daughter Isla, five, and son Jack, 16 months – but there was no sign of the kids on their morning walk.
Work ahead of the series is underway as crew were yesterday spotted performing tests for Bushtucker Trials.
It was also revealed that the regular Walk The Plank challenge will return.
The new and improved supersized plank will now see celebs cling to a cylindrical metal pole after descending a ladder, instead of the previous 100m walk in the air.
The show’s crew are scrambling to prepare the jungle site for the campmates. New features include erecting big new trial areas featuring an Aztec temple and outdoor pool with six sunken cages.
I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! returns to ITV and ITVX on November 19.
