Show Structure for “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!”
For the first part of the show, the celebrities compete in Bushtucker Trials in order to earn stars for the camp, which are then exchanged for meals. By the eviction stage, these trials, while still providing food, also reward immunity from the public vote, which comes into play halfway through the show. The last player left is crowned the King or Queen of the Jungle.
Bushtucker trials normally take the form of two varieties: eating or physical. While usually pre-recorded, they can be broadcast live and can be done solo, in pairs, or in teams. Eating trials usually involve eating or drinking various Australian animal parts – the nastier the better – while physical trials often entail swimming, crawling through live bugs, or undertaking high wire challenges.

“I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!” throws up some very entertaining betting ideas. Here are a few ideas on how you can bet on “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!”
Who Will Win “I’m a Celeb”?
As soon as you see the line up for the new “I’m a Celeb” series, you might get an idea as to who could win.

First Contestant Evicted
This is a very simple bet, and one that requires punters to pick the first contestant to be eliminated as soon as the round of phone vote evictions begins. After around two weeks of the show’s run, you should have worked out who the public are likely to have taken a dislike to. Of course, like the bet above, it would pay better to make the bet before the series begins, but that could lead to making the wrong call as someone you thought would annoy you actually turns out to be nice.

The First Celebrity to Walk Out
Sometimes, celebrities don’t wait for the public to decide their fate and take matters into their own hands, choosing to walk out and leave their camp mates behind. One of the reasons for this is that many find the experience too tough. Very often, contestants will threaten to leave but never actually go through with it. Either way, walkouts usually occur early in the series, so watch out for the warning signs and make your bet(s) accordingly.

History of “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!”
The show, which was initially produced by LWT and Granada Television, first aired in August 2002 and filmed in Tully, Queensland, Australia. It was hosted then, as it is now, by Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, known in the UK as Ant and Dec. In 2018, Holly Willoughby stepped in for McPartlin while he took time away from TV. The inaugural series was won by radio DJ Tony Blackburn. One series is filmed a year, normally in the run up to the Christmas festive season, with the exception of 2004, which saw two series being broadcast.
ITV Studios later took up sole production and relocated the filming camp to Murwillumbah, New South Wales. The 2020 series is the first to not be filmed in Australia, taking place within the UK for the first time at Abergele’s Gwrych Castle in Wales. This series will also be two days shorter than normal. Past winners have included sports stars, actors, singers, reality TV stars, chefs and all-round TV personalities.
