The show usually runs for three weeks.

Campmates are then whittled down with daily eliminations which start after the first week.

You can catch up with any missed episodes on ITV Hub.

What is I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here?

I'm A Celebrity is a popular reality show that sees 12 celebrities live together in the Australian jungle for around three weeks.

They have no luxuries, and compete to be crowned king or queen of the jungle.

They have to endure daily Bushtucker Trails, which often consist of being enclosed in small spaces and being showered with bugs – or in the worst case… eating them.

The show is hosted by national treasures Ant and Dec.
