ITV is launching the first ever I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! podcast to coincide with this year's All Stars series.

The new I'm A Celebrity…South Africa show, which will see former contestants head back into the jungle for an All Stars series, will begin airing on 24 April and be accompanied by a podcast hosted by two former campmates.

Ex-Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt, 32, and comedian Seann Walsh, 37, will be the hosts of I'm A Celebrity…South Africa – The Podcast, which will be available via Global Player and all other major platforms, as well as the I'm A Celebrity YouTube channel.

Speaking ahead of the podcast's launch, I'm A Celeb 2022 star Seann said: "I had the most amazing experience doing I'm A Celebrity last year so I can't wait to get back into the Jungle world with the first ever I'm A Celeb podcast.

“Scarlett and I will be discussing everything, no subjects are off limits and this time, I get to sleep in my own bed. I cannot wait!"

Scarlett, who shared the news on her Instagram account on Thursday, also shared her excitement, saying: "I'm so excited to be hosting the first ever I'm A Celebrity Podcast with Seann – we both love a giggle and a natter so I can't wait to get stuck in watching episodes of I'm A Celebrity…South Africa.

“It’s amazing to see some of our favourite campmates from over the years, including my Jungle family Carol and Jordan who are going back into camp….who will be crowned 'I'm A Celebrity Legend'? I can't wait!!"

It marks the first time the ITV bosses have launched a podcast to go alongside I'm A Celebrity.

From 2002 until 2019, ITV aired two I'm A Celebrity spin-off shows. One was titled Get Me Out Of Here! Now! and the second was called Extra Camp.

Numerous famous faces hosted the shows over the years, including the late Caroline Flack, Matt Willis, Joe Swash, Emily Atack, Laura Whitmore and Joel Dommett, among others.

I'm A Celeb's sister show last aired in 2019 and didn't run for the series that took place during the Coronavirus pandemic, which were filmed in Wales instead of Australia.

A TV insider revealed "viewing habits" influenced TV bosses' decision to launch the podcast, telling The Sun: “The spin-off didn’t run during the pandemic but when Ant and Dec returned to Australia in 2022 and there was no updated format, the writing seemed to be on the wall.

“Viewing habits are in constant flux so launching a podcast is a great idea and shows the programme has legs to adapt to trends.”
