Joe Swash has traveled to South Africa to record an episode of I'm A Celebrity All-Stars season, while his wife Stacey Solomon juggles life at home with their children.

The much-awaited I'm A Celeb All-Stars television series, hosted by And & Dec is expected to premiere as early as next year.

Will Joe Swash be a double winner?

And it has been said that Joe Swash, a former King of the Jungle and the previous host of the popular spin-off program for the series, has traveled to South Africa to participate. The 40-year-old actor achieved first place in the ITV series in 2008 and went on to anchor the spin-off show for ten years.

The celebrity, who just tied the knot with Stacey Solomon - a former Queen of the Jungle, hopes to get the title as the first double winner by competing in the All-Stars competition.

The Sun writes:

'Joe was always on the producers' hit list as he was such an iconic winner. But they had to iron out the timings and came to a conclusion that worked.’

The publication added:

'He has flown out there and can't wait to give a good account of himself for a second time on the show.'

In one of her frequent Instagram postings, Stacey, who Joe shares two children with, son Rex, three, and infant daughter Rose, explained that he is now away from home to film for a new role.

Last week, the Loose Women panelist posted a photo on her Instagram account along with the caption:

‘Since Joe's been away for the last couple of weeks, these two have gotten so close and every morning they get into bed with me.’

For the pre-recorded series, which will premiere in 2019, Myleene Klass, Jordan Banjo, and Paul Burrell will join Joe.

What is I'm a Celebrity All-Stars about?

The ITV blockbuster series I'm a Celebrity has a brand-new spinoff, and presenters Ant and Dec stated that they are presently filming in South Africa for it last week.

They tweeted the exciting information and wrote:

‘South Africaaaaaaa! That's right, we're filming a very special version of I'm A Celebrity in South Africa which is coming to your tellies in 2023.'

Along with the tweet, there was a video of the television pair saying, ‘We've got some news,’ while standing in front of some picturesque mountains and a body of water.

Describing it as the 'worst kept secret in telly', Dec shared:

'We can confirm that we're doing a very special series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! In South Africa! It's going to be your favourite celebrities from the last 20 years who are going back in to do it one more time.'

The Geordie couple, who has been the show's hosts since its inception in 2002, said the ITV program will return to Australia later this year. They also addressed concerns about the show moving back to Australia after the last two seasons were held at Gwrych Castle in North Wales due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

‘But are we going to Australia, Declan?’ Ant raises a question to his co-star, to which Dec replies, ‘Yes, we are. This year we are going back to Australia. This will be on next year.’

Ant McPartlin said during a Heart Radio interview with Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston:

‘The plan is we're going back to Australia. It's got to go back to its spiritual home. Everyone wants to see a bit of sunshine at that time of year on the telly.'
