It's the time of the year when a lineup of famous faces arrives in the South African jungle to compete on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! One of the best parts of the reality TV show in my opinion is the guessing game that kicks off before the competition has even begun.
In the weeks leading up to I'm A Celeb, the show's hosts Julia Morris and Dr Chris Brown will continue to tease us with cryptic clues about who will be going into the jungle to compete.
Last year we saw a range of celebrities going head-to-head in order to win the final prize money for their nominated charity. Comedian Dylan Lewis won the ultimate crown at the end of the season, and was joined on the show by model Maria Thattil, former MasterChef star Poh Ling Yeow, ex-MAFS star Davina Rankin, professional swimmer Emily Seebohm and many more.
As we count down to a new season filled with more creepy crawlies and juicy campfire chats, here's a round-up of all the clues that have dropped — and who's speculated to enter the I'm A Celeb jungle in 2023.

Radio host

The first clue for this season surrounds a radio host who loves to "kiss and tell", and our minds immediately jump to Jackie O. The 48-year-old hosts KIIS FM's breakfast radio show called The Kyle & Jackie O Show, alongside Australian Idol host Kyle Sandilands. Plus, she already has connections to Channel 10 after being a judge on The Masked Singer.
Other guesses that I'm A Celeb fans have made on the show's official Instagram account include Em Rusciano, Fifi Box and Kate Langbroek.
Update: It's KIIS National Drive radio show host Woody Whitelaw.
"I want to teach my daughter that you should always do things that scare you," said Woody. "This show certainly scares me so I’m hoping that if Daddy is brave, she can be brave too. Also, free trip to South Africa – how good!"

UK TV Star

Clue number two assures us that international talent is heading to the jungle on this season of I'm A Celeb.
What we've been told so far is that "when a UK star lands in the African jungle, drama will be a shore thing".
The choice of words is already very telling — surely the word 'shore' is referring to a Geordie Shore cast member. With 23 seasons of the UK reality show, there are plenty of names to choose from. But some fans on social media suspect it could be James Tindale, who hasn't shied away from Aussie TV before, as he appeared on First Dates in 2020.
Update: It's Geordie Shore star Nathan Henry.

Queen Of The Court

"Will this Queen of the Court continue her reign as Queen of the Jungle?" That's the question asked of us on the official I'm A Celeb Instagram account.
With a trophy cup also visible in the promo clip for this celeb, we can easily assume that this person is a champ in their sport. While tennis player Ash Barty easily springs to mind, the chances of her competing on a physically demanding show like this are pretty slim as she's expecting a baby this year.
A tennis fan's dream come true would be for international sporting stars like Serena Williams or Naomi Osaka to appear, but let's not forget that a court could also be referring to other sports like netball, basketball or volleyball. I guess we'll all find out soon!
Update: It's netball legend Liz Ellis.

Outspoken TV Host

"This outspoken TV host will be talent-spotting in the African jungle" — this is all we need to hear to convince us that this is a media personality who's hosted a talent show in the past.
The Masked Singer judge Dave 'Hughesy' Hughes has hosted Australia's Got Talent in the past, so could the comedian be the pick for the jungle this year? It's unlikely that Kyle Sandilands — who's known for being outspoken — will be heading into the jungle, as she's working on rival network Channel 7's Australian Idol.
Update: It's former Australian Idol judge Ian 'Dicko' Dickson.

TV Royalty

"Roll out the red carpet... television royalty is making a grand entrance into the African jungle," reads the cryptic caption next to this clue. With footage shown of a woman walking down the red carpet, and the hint that this is someone who's very well-established in the television industry, a former Logie winner comes to mind.
After having finished up as The Project after 13 years, could Gold Logie winner Carrie Bickmore be entering the jungle? Or, could it be someone from within the 10 Network who spends a lot of time on the red carpet, such as Studio 10's Angela Bishop?
Update: It's Kerri-Anne Kennerley.

Reality Star

We've been told in a fresh promo that a "reality star will get a fright at first sight when they step foot in the African jungle". While that clue can still leave plenty of room for imagination, we're pretty sure we can narrow it down to a dating show contestant thanks to some visuals.
In the clip, we see a man waiting at the altar with their back to the camera, and also the feet of a bride walking down. Our immediate guess is this is a former Married At First Sight star, which wouldn't be a big leap considering former MAFS stars Davina Rankin and Ryan Gallagher have been on I'm A Celeb in the past.
Fans on Instagram have also been sharing their guesses, including MAFS alumni such as Domenica Calarco, Cyrell Paule and Michael Brunelli.
Update: It's ex MAFS star Domenica Calarco.

Logie Winning Legend

The video for this clue confirms that it's an actress whose name is after, and some other hints within the clip are also very telling.
"A star of both the stage and screen, they’re no stranger to drama away from home," is what we're told.
With this in mind, a former Home & Away star is where we're putting our bets on — perhaps Kate Ritchie, Jodi Gordon, Bec Hewitt, Penny McNamee or Sharni Vinson who recently appeared on Australian Survivor: Heroes vs Villains.
Update: It's former Home & Away actor Debra Lawrance.

Celeb Chef 

"This celebrity chef has mastered the art of making an exotic snack," reads the clue for this mystery star.
Of course, we immediately assume this is a MasterChef star, especially after Poh Ling Yeow appeared in the jungle last year. While judges Jock Zonfrillo and Andy Allen sound like obvious choices, it could be too close to their own show, MasterChef Australia: Secrets & Surprises airing May 1.
Some fans on Instagram have predicted ex MasterChef judge Matt Preston will be wearing his famous cravats in the jungle, while others suggest Laura Sharrad, who also appeared on Snackmasters.
Update: It's pastry chef Anna Polyviou.

Former Wallaby

"A famous Aussie animal is heading into the African jungle..." reads the caption on the show's Instagram account, before a video reveals a 'former international Wallaby' is the mystery celeb behind this clue.
Could it be former Bachelor star and ex Wallaby player Nick Cummins, aka The Honeybadger?
Update: It's Nick Cummins (The Honey Badger).


The clue for this one is: "A comedian thinks it's gonna be all laughs when he flies into the African jungle..."
Some very observant fans on social media have noted that one of Aussie comedian Carl Barron's tours was called "Skating Rink For Flies" — so if we're reading into the wording, there could be something in this theory.
Update: It's former The Project host Peter Helliar.

Olympic Medallist

"An Olympic medalist is ready for a rumble in the African jungle," is how the clue begins, before we're told that "when it comes to stereotypes, he won’t be boxed in".
No doubt this will be a famous boxer, and our guess is Jeff Fenech who's already tried his hand at reality TV on Celebrity Apprentice in the past.
Update: It's Olympic lightweight boxer Harry Garside.

TV Presenter — Bianca Hunt

TV Personality — Aesha Scott

AFL Star — Adam Cooney
