The I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here spin-off show will return to ITV2 later this year with a new name, new presenters and a new format.

I'm A Celebrity: Extra Camp will follow the main ITV show and will be hosted by former winners Joe Swash, Stacey Solomon and Vicky Pattison as well as comedian Chris Ramsey.

The new show will replace I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here Now, which was hosted by Swash, Laura Whitmore and David Morgan, and will feature unseen clips, interviews and bushtucker trials.

The hosts will also compete in live studio games and will be joined in Australia by celebrity guests, including main show hosts Ant and Dec, as well as other stars weighing in on the show from the UK.

Swash, who won the show in 2008 said: " I'm a Celebrity is always my most favourite time of the year. I cannot wait to be back at my second home with a new gang of people. As always I'm sure this series will be the best one yet".

Former X Factor contestant Solomon, who won the show in 2010 and is Swash's girlfriend, added: "I'm am so thrilled and excited to be a part of the ITV2 team in the jungle!

"I can't believe I'm going back to Australia and I get to do the job of my dreams, alongside three of the nicest, funniest people around including my man! Woo! Absolute job goals!"

Pattison, who won the latest series in 2015, said she hopes she still gets to compete in some of the challenges, saying: "I can't wait to work alongside Chris, Joe and Stacey, who are all brilliant.

"I'm dying to get back in the jungle and hopefully they'll still let me give some of the trials a go! We can't let the campmates have all the fun now can we?!"
