It’s back down under. After spending the COVID-era in a Welsh castle, the UK edition of I’m a Celebrity Get me out of Here is finally returning to Australia for what fans will doubtless hope is a long and uninterrupted run back where it belongs.
It promises to be a fun-packed series once again with some celebs you have heard of (and some you haven’t) camping in the Australian jungle and taking on a series of challenges as they seek to avoid elimination and win the crown as King or Queen of the Jungle.
It’s the show that has everything, but for Brits abroad, it can be a trigger of huge frustration as I’m a Celebrity is only shown in the UK.
The good news is that there is a way to stream I’m a Celebrity from anywhere in the world, so whether you are overseas for work or pleasure, you can still watch every episode.
That’s what this guide is all about, so if you want to know how to watch I’m a Celebrity outside the UK, all you have to do is keep on reading.
Where is I’m a Celebrity being shown?
I’m A Celebrity remains a staple show for ITV in the run-up to Christmas and is broadcast live on ITV with other content available across the ITV network.
Everything is also streamed live and on-demand on the ITV Hub streaming service, but sadly this is blocked to users outside the UK.
That means you need a bit of help to watch in other countries.
How do I watch I’m a Celebrity where I am?
To watch I’m a Celebrity outside the UK, you will need the help of a VPN app or to give it its full name a ‘Virtual Private Network’.
Bear with me, it sounds more complicated than it is.
This online security and privacy tool works by redirecting your internet traffic through another location called a ‘server’. When this happens, the websites you visit and apps you use will assume the connection originates from that country.
That means if you connect to a UK-based location, ITV Hub will think you are in the UK and let you stream as much I’m a Celebrity content as you like, no matter where you are actually based.
Where to get a VPN?
If you are new to VPNs, a quick Google search isn’t really good enough as there are so many VPNs out there, but many are not up to the job of letting you stream shows on platforms like ITV Hub.
You need a VPN with the fastest possible speeds, plenty of UK servers, and apps for all the devices you need.
ExpressVPN is your best bet. It has all of the above and plenty more features besides. It even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, which gives you loads of time to try before you buy.
There are other VPNs, like NordVPN and Surfshark VPN, that can also do a decent job, and they too offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. But it is ExpressVPN that is our number one recommendation, however you’re free to choose.

What is I’m a Celebrity all about?
I’m a Celebrity is a show that really needs no introduction. It sees a group of celebrities stuck in a camp in the Australian jungle surrounded by nothing more than a camera crew and what nature has to throw at them.
They will take part in a series of trials, known as Bushtucker Trials, designed to disgust them and challenge them both physically and mentally.
Bushtucker Trials take two formats: eating trials or physical/mental tasks. The eating trials see contestants have to consume creatures such as crickets, green ants, mealworms, witchetty grubs, spiders, the genitals of various animals, and even cockroaches.
The physical challenges include such things as hunting through dung, crawling through tunnels, and undertaking obstacles on high wires.
Viewers can vote for which celebs have to do the trials and then can also vote to keep their favourite celebrities in the jungle. Contestants are eliminated regularly until the grand final, when the King of the Jungle is crowned.
Who stars in I’m A Celebrity?
The faces of I’m A Celebrity are the co-hosts Ant and Dec, a fixture of Saturday night TV for two decades or more and still fondly remembered for their teenage stint on Byker Grove and their fleeting pop music career.
But it is the celebrities that are the real stars. The full line-up has not been confirmed at the time of writing, but celebs expected to take part in the 2022 edition of the show are:
- Sue Cleaver – Best known for her role as Eileen Grimshaw in Coronation Street.
