COUNTLESS stars have left their mansions and PAs behind and headed for the Australian jungle over the years to take part in I’m a Celebrity over the years. Here’s everything we know…
Our experts reveal their top 20 picks for the year ahead, from the beaches of Turkey to the rainforests of Nicaragua.
1. Turkey’s Turquiose Coast
Sunshine-soaked and with a glittering blue seaboard, Turkey’s glorious “turquoise” coast wouldn’t normally rank as a newly rising star. The 300-mile loop of coastline that unfurls like an iridescent ribbon between Marmaris and Antalya has long been a favourite for holiday-makers, with UK visitors in particular flocking to its picture-perfect fishing villages and chic little bougainvillea-laden resorts. But over the last couple of years, following a wave of terror attacks and political unrest, things have taken a well-documented nosedive. Between 2014 and 2016 Turkey’s visitor numbers slumped from 42 million to 25 million. And now? Maybe we’ve all simply had to accept that no country is guaranteed terror-proof. Maybe people have realised that Syrian border is hundreds of miles from Turkey’s tourist areas.
Only without the bushtucker trials.
Would you like to take a holiday camping in the jungles of Australia, without the hassle of becoming a celebrity first?
Well you can take a once-in-a lifetime trip to see where the likes of Amir Khan, Georgia Toffolo and Rebekah Vardy are currently experiencing what it’s like to hold a python or taste lamb’s anus.

And while you might not get to meet Ant and Dec on your own trip out there, at least you won’t have to do anything that requires having crickets and cockroaches poured all over you.

And it’s not a set in the middle of a UK studio – they really are living out in the heart of the Australian jungle.

Well the good news is that you won’t have to eat insects or face your biggest fears.
Australia’s Gondwana Rainforests protect more than 200 rare or threatened plant and animal species.
Site: Gondwana Rainforests of Australia
Year Designated: 1986
Criteria: (viii), (ix), (x)
Reason: The protected areas include the world’s largest subtropical rain forest, a remnant of the rain forest-covered ancient supercontinent of Gondwana.
Australia’s Gondwana Rainforests are a living snapshot of history, an echo of the days when rain forests covered the ancient supercontinent of Gondwana. In the remaining rainforest enclaves, where green canopies surround ancient volcanic craters and rushing rivers are punctuated by crashing waterfalls, visitors might well feel themselves transported to another era.
Gondwana was a giant landmass comprising what later became Africa, Antarctica, Australia, South America, and the Indian subcontinent. Forty-five million years ago, Australia separated from Antarctica, which drifted south and froze as Australia drifted north—a northward trajectory that continues gradually today.
