14 of the most iconic moments in I'm A Celeb history


Share This Article:

It's that time of year again when the British population give up their social lives for three weeks, retreat away from the freezing weather and seek the warmth of the Australian summer, Ant and Dec's cheesy grins and the delightful sight of B-listers eating animal parts. That's right - I'm a Celeb is back. 

The show has now run for an incredible 15 series, with the 16th series beginning this Sunday, with another bunch of athletes, soap stars and British reality stars coming face to face with their deepest darkest fears - much to our amusement.

So, grab a cup of cockroaches and join us on a trip down memory lane as we revisit some of the show's most memorable moments and faces over the last 15 years. 

1. David Gest and his wonderful stories. 

The kind that you couldn't possibly believe but you REALLY wanted to. 

2. When Alfonso Ribeiro FINALLY put us all out of our misery and gave us a tutorial on the legendary Carlton dance. 

"Bam. Step. Bam. Step"

3. When we stared in disbelief as Michael Buerk learnt how to rap.

"Michael's my name and I'm real cool, stuck in the jungle feeling like a fool."


4. Joey Essex's quest for knowledge.

"I don't understand the ticks"

5. No matter what you thought of Lady C, you can only dream of being on her insult game, and someday being able to scream "you pretentious piffler!" in the face of your rival. 

"You're a chippy oik with the brains of a pea and the mouth of diarrhoea."

6. When Helen Flanagan ended a trial within one second of it starting. 

And the bugs hadn't even been released yet.

7. Gillian McKeith. That's all I need to say. 

That fall though. 

8. When Dean Gaffney set the bar for all future bushtucker trial screamers. 

How many decibels??


9. That time that Rosemary Shrager let one rip on national television.

And the rats actually scatter in fear.


10. We have been graced with many wonderful bromances over the years, but you can't beat authentic Italian. 

"You're no good in the bloody water, are you?"

11. When we genuinely thought that Fearne McCann was going to die.

It doesn't get any more tense than this.

12. When Katie Price's love life became the centre of attention, and the nation held its breath.  

Post-Andre of course.

13. All of Ant and Dec's dad jokes. 

We all know that I'm A Celeb would be nothing without them.

14. And finally, I leave you with a Pussycat Doll teaching Rosemary Shrager and Colin Baker how to slut drop.

You're welcome. 

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here returns to ITV at 9pm on Sunday 13th November.
