What is the show’s format?
Paul Burrell had quite the reaction to the trials
The idea is that 12 celebrities are shipped off to the Australian jungle where they take part in tasks and challenges to win food and try to impress the voting public at home.
The prize is being crowned king or queen of the jungle and generally having new life breathed back into an ailing showbiz career.
The stars aren’t allowed any phones and only one luxury item with them, apart from that it’s back to basics and food is rationed, which often leads to a large amount of weight loss.
Tasks usually consist of eating insects and the genitalia of various animals or being covered in millions of insects or shut in underground tunnels surrounded by rats and snakes.

Ant and Dec have always hosted the main ITV show, however this year things are different after Ant McPartlin went back to rehab after being convicted of drink-driving.
This Morning host Holly Willoughby was announced as his replacement and Dec’s new sidekick.
"I couldn’t be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure," she said in a statement confirming her appointment.
"I love Ant and want to send him my best wishes and support for a continued recovery. These are big shoes, not to fill, but just to keep warm for a little bit."
It means Holly and Dec will be fronting the show together this year – even though Holly has admitted she’s "scared of everything that moves".
