As we count down the days to the premiere of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2021, we’re becoming desperate to know exactly which celebs will be donning the khakis this year – and luckily for us, the rumour mill has been swirling… Ferociously.
Just over two weeks before the first episode drops on ITV, a number of names have reportedly signed up to the show, with a number of Yorkshire stars included in the star-studded line-up.
Kicking off on November 21st at the brand new location in Wales – which was a huge hit with fans last year during lockdown – the likes of Kadeena Cox and Matty Lee will be grabbing their backpacks and body warmers for the new series, which see contestants take on a number of gruelling challenges in a bid to take home the title of King or Queen of the Castle.
Fans may know Leeds-born Kadeena Cox already, following her recent win of BBC’s Celebrity Masterchef, and her many accomplishments competing in the Paralympics as a parasport sprinter. Cox has won gold multiple times, proving she has plenty of bottle ahead of the series launch.
Also reported to be joining to cast is Leeds-born Olympic diver Matty Lee, who recently won gold alongside Tom Daley at the Tokyo Olympics.
Matty Lee and Kadeena Cox mark just two of twelve ‘confirmed’ names joining this year’s line-up, with an array of other well-known British faces set to grace our screens this month.

When will ‘I’m A Celeb’ 2021 air?

Where will it be filmed?
The new series will take place at Grwych Castle in Wales for the second time, following its popularity with fans last year. The new location was scouted to allow the show to go ahead, with COVID travel restrictions still in place for much of Australia. The 2020 series of the show took place during the UK’s second lockdown, and participants were required to isolate for weeks before the show’s start to eliminate the risk of spreading the virus among cast and crew.
What time is it on?
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! typically airs each night (with the exception of Saturday) from 9pm. Saturday evenings usually show a catch-up episode for fans to enjoy ahead of Sunday’s bigger show.
