I'm A Celebrity South Africa in huge show shake up as bosses make major change to final | The Sun

THERE will be a huge change for the winner of I'm A Celebrity…South Africa as ITV throws its rule book away for the new series.

Instead of being crowned King or Queen of the Jungle, the winning celebrity will instead be named the first ever Legend.

It means the likes of Phil Tufnell, 56, who won back in 2003, won’t be able to regain his title as King.

There are also two former winners among the surprise latecomers who are set to arrive in camp: Georgia Toffolo, 28 and Joe Swash, 41.

The Sun revealed this week that the pair are set to land halfway through the I'm A Celebrity All Stars series to join the starting nine campmates, alongside four other late arrivals.

A source said: “The whole group had different reasons for wanting to head back into the jungle but there was one common goal among them – they all wanted to win.

“Most thought the benefit of experience would mean they stood a better chance at the crown.

“So it was a surprise to everybody that the title of King or Queen of the Jungle was no longer even up for grabs.”

Amir Khan, 36, made his intentions to take the win clear before he entered camp.

He said: “I let myself down by saying 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ in one of the Trials in Australia.

Inside the curse of I'm A Celebrity – from shamed stars to sudden illness

“I got scared last time and I want to go in again and come out as the main man – the champion. I am in this to win it.”

It comes as The Sun revealed a first look at the brand new camp in the Kruger National Park.

The space for the camp, trials and challenges is SIX times the size of ITV’s usual base on Australia’s Gold Coast.

As well as a dry and dusty camp based in the African bush, there is a savage-looking new shower with a Game of Thrones style backdrop instead of the iconic cliff waterfall known to viewers.

We also told how the trials in this series, which was prerecorded last year, include the highest ever challenge faced in I’m A Celebrity history.

I’m A Celebrity…South Africa begins next Monday April 24 at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
