I’m A Celebrity fans ‘teary’ as Ant McPartlin makes his return

He's back!

| Updated:

Viewers of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! were thrilled as Ant and Dec were reunited on this year’s show.

Ant took a year off after being arrested for drink driving and going to rehab, so he missed presenting last year’s series.

Holly Willoughby made the trip to Australia alongside Dec Donnelly to present in Ant’s absence.

But depsite the fact she was hit with fans, it was made very clear it was just temporary and Ant would be returning.

And return he has.

The series kicked off tonight with half of the celebs arriving on board a luxury yacht, while the other half were taken by speedboat to a beach.

Viewers at home were most shocked to see Caitlyn Jenner heading into the jungle.

The teams were stunned when the gang on the yacht – Nadine Coyle, Ian Wright, James Haskell, Kate Garraway, and Myles Stephenson – were told they had to swim to the beach in the clothes they were wearing to partner up with someone else.

Those waiting on the beach were Caitlyn, Roman Kemp, Adele Roberts, Jacqueline Jossa, and Andrew Maxwell.
