Cape Town – For the first time the British reality show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! is coming to viewers across Africa.

The reality show will debut on ITV Choice (DStv 123) on 17 November at 21:00, broadcast within 48 hours after the United Kingdom.

Viewers can settle in for the brand-new I'm a Celebrity which has already been on for 14 seasons in the UK and is now coming in high definition (HD) to ITV Choice from next month from the start of the 15th season.

Filmed in Australia with presenters Ant and Dec, it is the UK's biggest reality show with an average of 10 million viewers.

It 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.

Previous contestants include names like Star Trek's George Takei, tennis star Martina Navratilova, princess Diana's controversial former butler Paul Burrell, Westlife's Kian Egan, actor Jason Donovan, The Only Way is Essex's Mark Wright and former Playboy bunny Kendra Wilkinson.

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.
