It's almost time to watch our favourite celebs create some TV gold – and we can't wait.

It's back, baby! I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! will return for another year on Sunday 18th November at 9pm LIVE on ITV, so we can kiss goodbye to any evening plans for the next 3 weeks. Soon, we'll be watching a fresh batch of stars make telly history and take on the infamous Bushtucker Trials. There's just something oh so satisfying about watching famous faces eat kangaroo testicles and grubs, right?

The line-up for I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! 2018 has finally been released and it’s already looking like this series is set to be one of the best yet, with Doctor Who actor John Barrowman, Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack, X Factor singer Fleur East, The Chase star Anne Hegerty, Coronation Street's Sair Khan, TV presenter Nick Knowles, The Vamps singer James McVey, football legend Harry Redknapp, EastEnders' Rita Simons and Hollyoaks' Malique Thompson-Dwyer, all heading Down Under.

Holly Willoughby will be joining Declan Donnelly for the all new series.

Here's a reminder of some of the programme's most iconic Bushtucker trial moments and meltdowns in I'm A Celeb history.

1) When Gillian McKeith had an absolute nightmare while doing a trial with some rats.

There's dramatic and then there's Gillian McKeith. The nutritionist had a bit of a nightmare when she was thrown into an underground chamber with a bunch of live rats. Gillian had to be checked over by the show's medical team after almost fainting while doing the trial - and you know what, we would probably have been the same!

2) When Ferne McCann ate a live spider.

We could barely watch when TOWIE's Ferne crunched a live giant water spider... *hides behind sofa*

3) When Martin Roberts almost vomited after drinking blended cockroaches.

Never mix your drinks, kids – especially if they happen to contain both flies and cockroaches. Martin Roberts struggled to keep his shake down following his trial in 2016, causing his fellow campmates to erupt with laughter.

4) When Fatima Whitbread got a cockroach stuck up her nose.

What's a Bushtucker Trial without living on the edge?! Fatima Whitbread got a nasty critter stuck up her nostril during one trial, but like the Olympic champ she is, she fired it right out. And when we say fired, we literally mean it. Watch her in action in the video above!

5) When Scarlett Moffatt took on George the Ostrich.

Scarlett and George the Ostrich didn't quite see eye to eye during this trial - but the whole thing was worth it thanks to those "soothing" noises. We're still laughing.

6) When Gino D'Acampo went into spider-induced meltdown.

Gino D'Acampo's biggest fear is spiders, so naturally the first thing you want to do is stick him in a helmet filled with the eight-legged arachnids. The Italian chef danced his way through it, though, with the help of some coaching by Sam Fox.

7) When Dean Gaffney relived his live trial.

Two words – comedy gold. Dean Gaffney didn't take well to the Bushtucker Spa, which saw him hilariously convulse as he was lavished with "beauty treatments".

8) When Katie Price and Kim Woodburn tucked into some grubs together.

Who knew Katie Price and Kim Woodburn were the duo we needed? Kim offered her support as Katie teared the head off of a grub and chomped down on it for a trial.

9) When Amir Khan had a fight with a crab.

Amir Khan has faced boxing greats in the ring, but little did he know his toughest opponent was in the jungle. Amir went head-to-head with a snappy crab and we almost died.

10) When Lady Colin Campbell and Jorgie Porter ate camel lips and crocodile penis.

We've never heard camel lips described as "al dente" but Lady Colin Campbell is obviously well versed in the art of outback dining. Lady C tackled a delicious meal-for-two which saw them devour a three-course banquet of camel lips, crocodile penis and fish eyes. Bon appétit.

11) When Adam Thomas developed his own language.

Adam Thomas invented his own dialect while under the pressure of his Bushtucker Trial in 2017 and needless to say it provided a lot of laughs.

12) When Scarlett Moffatt just wanted a chicken kebab.


I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here returns on Sunday 18th November at 9pm LIVE on ITV.
