Ant and Decrevealed the line upfor their new All Stars season during Saturday’s episode of Saturday Night Takeaway, with fan-favourites like Carol Vorderman, Phil Tuffnell, and Janice Dickinson among the contestants heading back to the I’m A Celeb camp for the brand new series.
A source close to Caitlyn spoke exclusively to The Mirror, and revealed that 73 year old had been approached by bosses of the ITV show to participate in the All Stars season, but unfortunately had to turn it down as her “schedule didn’t allow for it".
Caitlyn had proven to be a popular contestant during her time on the 2019 series, with fans praising her for coming across as very sweet and genuine.
Despite Caitlyn being unable to make it, nine other celebrities have been confirmed as the campmates.
Alongside Carol Vorderman, previous winner Phil Tuffnell, and supermodel Janice Dickinson, there will also be formerCoronation Streetactress Helen Flanagan, Olympian Fatima Whitbread, Paul Burrell,Shaun Ryder , Amir Khan, and Jordan Banjo.
The new series has already been filmed, and saw the nine celebrities head to the South African bush rather than the Australian jungle in the first of many shake ups to the standard I’m A Celeb format.
Rather than airing live and being voted to stay, the celebrities will compete head to head in trials, with the loser being eliminated from the camp.
During their Saturday Night Takeaway show, Ant and Dec revealed the line up, and shared the trailer for the new series and showed some snippets of theupcoming trialsthat the contestants will have to face in order to be crowned the first ever I’m A Celebrity Legend.
