It’s that time of the year again. Yep, a fresh batch of celebrities are braving the jungle to compete in the upcoming season of “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” 2023. While the production has been keeping a tight lid on the details of who to expect, we have some speculations of our own.

Returning for its ninth season, the series will premiere on Sunday, April 2 at 7.30pm. Previously, the show has aired in January, but was bumped from its usual timeslot to make space for “The Bachelors” this year. Additionally, hosts Julia Morris and Dr Chris Brown return to their beloved South African Treehouse for another year.

Fans are eager to find out who will be challenging themselves in the 2023 season and while, we haven’t been given any names just yet, some celebrity clues have been unveiled. We’re talking a Brownlow Medal-winning “famous footballer”, a “comedian”, a “TV host”, a “boxing lightweight”, and a “famous chef”. Any guesses on who it might be? Read on to find out who we think is headed to the African jungle.

Clue: Reality Star

“Which reality star will get a fright at first sight? This celebrity has their bags packed and ready for some drama in the jungle,” the promo teases. “No stranger to dinner parties, they have a lot of baggage on board. Or is it a lot of carry-on?”

This has got to be a “Married At First Sight” participant with the dinner party reference. And, judging by the female shoe, it’s gotta be a Bride!

We’re thinking it’s Jessika Power, who appeared on the show in 2019. Or could it be the outspoken Domenica Calarco who was on it last year?

Clue: TV Royalty 

We’re also teased that TV royalty would be joining the cast in the African Jungle.

“Making a grand entrance in the African jungle is none other than TV Royalty…They may not be used to the camp conditions, but will they tough it out to raise the crown?” the promo reads.

Is it possible that the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, is involved? The 63-year-old had previously postponed her speaking tour in Australia due to a “schedule conflict.” Considering that Mike Tindall participated in the British version, it is conceivable that “Fergie” might be a contestant on “I’m a Celeb”.

Clue: An Outspoken TV Host 

“This TV host, renowned for expressing their strong views, is likely to polarise their campmates,” we’re told

“Despite being known for their exceptional talent spotting, they might be rendered speechless while consuming fish eyes during a Tucker Trial!”

It certainly sounds a bit like former “Australian Idol” judge Ian “Dicko” Dickson to us, or perhaps Mark Holden?

Clue: An AFL Star

A prominent athlete is set to enter the African Jungle, as per the latest hint that suggests they’re an AFL star who has won the Brownlow Medal.

The promo offers the question, “Which AFL star will be making his mark?” and reveals that the player in question is “a bit of a flyer,” providing the only other clue.

Initial speculations suggested that the “famous footballer” set to appear on the show was none other than ex-rugby league and union player, Sam Burgess. Despite his denial of the rumors during an interview with Kyle and Jackie O, some fans are still wondering if Sam’s statements were merely a feint to throw us off the scent.

On the other hand, there have been whispers in the grapevine that the mystery celebrity could be none other than retired AFL player-turned-Armchair Experts commentator, Adam Cooney.

Clue: Queen of the Court

“A sporting legend that is Queen of the court will be playing to win in the African Jungle,” the voiceover teases in the promo clip. “The only thing she’ll be courting here is the creepy crawlies!”

It is easy to assume that the individual featured is a champion in tennis, given the presence of a trophy cup. Although Ash Barty comes to mind, it is unlikely that she will participate in a physically demanding program like this since she is expecting a child this year.

Some fans are saying it could be basketball court, with names like Liz Cambage and Lauren Jackson being placed on the table.

Clue: A Radio Host

In another preview, we’re teased by a radio host entering the jungle. The video begins with a large lizard crawling around a radio studio. Then, a voice-over says: “A radio host that loves to kiss and tell will have plenty to say in the outback and jungle.”

The preview then cuts to a giraffe in the jungle, with its mouth covered in lipstick. The animal announces it would love to get a “kiss” from the mystery contestant.

It’s hard not to think of Jackie O with such an emphasis on “kiss”. The 48-year-old co-hosts KIIS FM’s Kyle & Jackie O Show with Kyle Sandilands. Not to mention, she’s already familiar with Channel 10, having served as a judge on the popular competition show, “The Masked Singer”.

Clue: A UK TV Star

The latest teaser announced a UK TV star is heading into the jungle.

“When a UK TV star lands in the African jungle, drama will be a ‘shore’ thing,” the voiceover announces.

We’re almost certain it’s going to be someone from “Geordie Shore” with that play on words. We’ve already seen Charlotte Crosby take on the challenge, so which fellow castmate could it be? Some fans on social media suspect it could be James Tindale. Others suggest Marnie Simpson or Scotty T (Scott Timlin).
