Network Ten has dropped a bunch of celebrities in the jungle for another rendition of its reality show, I’m a celebrity… get me out of here.

The show debuted on Ten last night, managing to pull in 1.324 million in a five-city metro, according to preliminary ratings from OzTam. While this wasn’t enough to win the night, as 1.682 million tuned into the finals of the Australian Open, the show came in third after the tennis match and tennis presentation.

And after much speculation, Ten officially revealed Aussie cricketer Shane Warne was also among the 12 celebrities getting acquainted with the African jungle.

While everyone else was plopped into the wilderness last night, Warne will hit the screens tonight and it will be interesting to see how he fairs.

The other celebrities who have taken the plunge are:
