Olivia Attwood jumps out of the helicopter on I’m a Celebrity
I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is back – and viewers are wondering where Matt Hancock is.
The popular ITV reality series has returned for its 20th series, set in the Australian jungle for the first time since 2019. Read The independents review of the debut episode here.
I’m a Celebrity had to relocate to Wales due to the pandemic, but this year’s crop of celebrities are back where the show truly belongs: Down Under.
In the first episode on Sunday (November 6), Mike Tindall and Jill Scott wowed the public with their utterly chilling reactions to their first challenges.
However, early frontrunner Olivia Attwood has unfortunately dropped out of the competition due to a medical issue less than 24 hours after entering the jungle.
The second episode, which aired on Monday (November 7), saw the show’s first Bushtucker trial, which was done by Chris Moyles, Scarlette Douglas, Boy George and Attwood before her departure.
Controversy rocked the show in October following the announcement that disgraced politician Matt Hancock will join the series in a few days alongside comedian Seann Walsh.
What do the I’m a Celebrity winners do next?
We’re a few weeks away from finding out this year’s winner, but in its 20 years of being on our screens, I’m a Celebrity has made many kings and queens to look back on.
Here’s a rundown of the 21 celebrities who have been crowned King or Queen of the Jungle so far, and what they got up to after…

Why am I a celebrity later tonight?
Instead of the usual time of 9 p.m., I’m a Celebrity starts at 21.15 tonight.
This is because The Martin Lewis Money Show at 8pm with a running time of 75 minutes, which changes programs that follow on ITV slightly later.
However, some social media users have also noted that this 21.15 start time also accommodates The Great British Bake OffEnd time – convenient for fans of both!

Although Babatunde’s fear of heights was made abundantly clear in Sunday’s episode, it seems he will still give tonight’s task a good shot if his social media handlers’ reaction is anything to go by.
After the comedian was announced as the next celebrity to do a Bushtucker trial on Monday’s episode, Babatunde’s Twitter handle retweeted the news with the caption: “Let’s Go!” and some emoji hearts.

Babatúndé Aléshé takes on the Horrifying Heights challenge
We all saw Babatúndé Aléshé shout “I’m a celebrity, get me out of here” in his very first height-based challenge, so tonight’s Bushtucker trial could be a tricky one.

How much money does Matt Hancock get paid to appear on the show?
Matt Hancock is finally heading into the jungle, but how much will he get paid to appear on the show?

Do the other campmates know that Matt Hancock is heading into the jungle?
One question we’ve been pondering is whether our original campmates know that Matt Hancock is heading into the jungle.
While MP’s name was mentioned among the first line-up rumours, his appearance was only confirmed once the first 10 had landed in Australia and, presumably, were isolated.
Given the controversial politician and his party’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s fair to assume that some of them might not be too happy to see him…
