The first trailer will premiere on ITV on Saturday and fans of the show will be asked to vote whether Ant and Dec will face Tropical Tides or Artic Antics on the I’m A Celebrity app. 

The big budget promo marks Ant’s return to I’m A Celebrity after he took a step back from filming commitments last year and was replaced by Holly Willoughby. 

A source previously told The Sun of Ant’s return: ‘The storyline for the promo is really funny, it’s a big and very expensive set-up with masses of special effects, but they wanted it to be right — especially for Ant’s return.

‘Holly was a fantastic stand-in and Dec enjoyed having her with him in Australia very much, but she always said it was a one-off.

‘Ant is a huge part of the success of the series so everyone on the team was looking forward to working with him again.’    

Last year, the star took a lengthy hiatus from screens to battle his addiction woes.

Ant previously credited girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett for ‘saving his life’, after battling addiction, a drink-drive conviction and divorce.  

The presenter made a return to television screens earlier in May for the new Britain’s Got Talent as he makes a comeback to the showbiz circuit following a tough year.

He was arrested for drink-driving in March last year and his presenting partner Dec hosted the live Britain’s Got Talent shows solo.

Ant’s ex wife Lisa was granted a divorce him during a 30-second hearing at the Central Family Court in October last year.

The I’m a Celeb host and his teenage sweetheart had been together for 23 years; they were married in 2006 but announced their split in January last year.

The former flames first met in Newcastle in 1994 before they went onto exchange vows at a stunning country house in Buckinghamshire in 2006.
