ITV quietly axe popular series hosted by Ant and Dec

ITV have quietly axed I’m A Celebrity… South Africa.

The spin-off series, which featured an all-star cast of previous campmates, won’t return this year.

The pre-recorded programme, hosted by Ant and Dec last year, was won by Myleene Klass – who was crowned the first I’m A Celebrity Legend.

Despite the series pulling in strong ratings, ITV bosses have decided to shelve the programme.

A TV insider told The Sun: “ITV have decided I’m A Celebrity South Africa will not return this year and there are currently no plans for another series.

“It may well return in the future so it’s not necessarily gone for good, but it definitely won’t be happening this year and there is nothing set in stone for when it will be.

“This will come as a disappointment to fans as Ant and Dec had previously hinted that it would be back and it was expected that it would be an annual thing.”

An ITV spokesperson also confirmed: “I’m A Celebrity… South Africa was commissioned to air in 2023 to celebrate favourite campmates from the past 20 years as they returned to the jungle.

“The series was one of the biggest entertainment shows of the year averaging 5.2million across its consecutive weeknight run and reaching over one million 16-34s for the launch episode.

“It was never planned for the series to return again this year.”
