It's a big year for I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! fans - for the first time since 2019, the ITV show is finally on its way back to Australia.

We've had a good couple of years at the castle, but now it's finally time to head back to the jungle, which should make camp a little warmer at least.

Who's headed Down Under for the first post-COVID restrictions series? Take a look at all of the rumoured campmates.

Who's rumoured for I'm A Celebrity 2022?

Oti Mabuse

She was one of the favourite pros on Strictly Come Dancing, but since announcing that 2021 was her last series on the BBC One contest, Mabuse has found herself with a little more free time in the autumn.

Former Strictly pros always make for popular campmates - James and Ola Jordan, Camilla Dallerup, Vincent Simone and AJ Pritchard have all taken part - and the ITV show's schedule would allow her back with enough time to spare to resume her Dancing On Ice judging role.

By November, Neighbours fans might just have recovered from the soap's cancellation as its finale is due to air on 29 July, and of course Moloney, who starred as Toadie, could be free to enter the jungle - as well as handily already being in Australia.

Moloney is already well loved by UK viewers for his long-running Ramsay Street role and was also a hit when he took part in Celebrity Big Brother in 2013.

Tom Skinner

Currently one of the bookies' favourites to go into camp is Skinner, although he might not be as well known as the other rumoured contestants.

Skinner first found fame on The Apprentice in 2019 and has stayed in the public eye with a stint on Celebrity MasterChef. He's also best mates with Rylan Clark.

Another soon-to-be-former soap star who'll be released from his usual hectic filming schedule by the end of the year is Dyer.

He's set to exit his EastEnders role as Mick Carter in December (with filming ending a while before) and would be a dream signing for the show because of his outspoken nature.

Nadiya Hussain

Former Bake Off winner and hugely successful TV cook Hussain has said before that she regrets not taking up a previous I'm A Celeb offer, but had no desire to spend winter in the recent North Wales castle location - could this be her year now that Australia is back on the cards?

If she did enter camp, she'd be hugely popular with the other contestants for her cooking skills.

Richard Madeley

The TV presenter caused much excitement when his name was announced for the 2021 camp, with viewers expecting to see plenty of his trademark Alan Partridge-style cringeworthy interactions.

But Madeley's time in camp was shortlived as he took a funny turn and had to go to hospital, breaking the COVID bubble which meant he couldn't return.

Could Madeley get a second chance this year, or is he holding out for the All Stars spin-off?
