Joe Swash has reportedly flown to South Africa to film I'm A Celeb All Stars
Joe Swash is reported to have already flown to South Africa ahead of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! All Stars spin-off.
After being crowned King of the Jungle back in 2008, the former Eastenders actor went on to host the after-show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here NOW! for a decade.
But it was this week that raised suspicions that he was heading back for another shot at the jungle when his wife Stacey Solomon teased that he was away from home at the moment filming a new job.
A source also told The Sun: “Joe was always on the producers’ hit list as he was such an iconic winner. But they had to iron out the timings and came to a conclusion that worked.
“He has flown out there and can’t wait to give a good account of himself for a second time on the show.”
It was confirmed last week that I'm A Celeb All Stars was officially happening, with hosts Ant and Dec confirming the news.
Dec said: “Hello everybody, we’ve got news for you. It’s probably the worst kept secret in television, but we can confirm we are doing a very special series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in South Africa.
“It’s going to be your favourite celebrities from the last 20 years who are going back in to do it one more time in South Africa."
The reality series will see famed contestants return to battle it out in gruesome challenges and the winner will be crowned the ultimate king or queen of the jungle.
The spin-off series will air next year, but until then, we've a whole series of the regular show to get through. I'm A Celeb will return this winter with a fresh batch of celebrities heading to Australia to compete.
As Dec himself said, the all-star edition of I'm A Celeb is indeed television's "worst kept secret", with many publications anticipating the series' launch for quite some time now.
A number of celebrities have already been linked to the show, but no one has been officially confirmed just yet.
Among the I'm A Celeb alumni whose names have been mentioned are Georgia Toffolo, Carol Vorderman, Paul Burrell, Gillian McKeith, Lady Colin Campbell and Dean Gaffney.
