Network Ten has announced details for a return of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! for 2016, albeit rather obscure ones.
Judging by the accompanying press photos both Chris Brown and Julia Morris will return in the hosting roles.
And, judging by the outfits, the show will once again be set in Africa.
The network has also released a new trailer for its second series:
Today’s release revealed this much – the contestants for 2016 would include an “an AFL legend, a Hollywood heart-throb, a record breaking pop star and an international DJ”.
And the guessing games surrounding next year’s cast have begun. The Daily Telegraph is reporting that Jimmy Barnes and singer Tim Omaji have agreed to join up. Comedians Fiona O’Loughlin and Akmal Saleh have also reportedly been approached. While Ruby Rose’s name has also been mentioned in media circles.
Although it has never been publicly disclosed, contestants are allegedly paid sizeable salaries to appear on the show with the eventual winner receiving $100,000 to donate to their chosen charity.
This year’s series also proved a ratings winner for Ten, averaging around 1.2 million per episode. Although it did tend to lose traction the longer it went on.
Ten has not yet announced a launch date for 2016’s show but it is believed to be in early February.
