Ant McPartlin finally made his long-awaited return to I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here on Sunday night, after his much-publicised break from the show.

The presenter, 43, joked that he’d taken a ‘year off’ as presenting partner Declan Donnelly gushed that they were ‘all back’ in Australia for the most dramatic launch show yet.

Ant’s arrival came as ten celebrities including Caitlyn Jenner, Nadine Coyle and Ian Wright endured some of the scariest opening challenges in the show’s history to make their way into the jungle.

As they introduced the show, Dec gushed: ‘We’re back, he’s back, I’m back, we’re all back,’ as they began the show by describing this year’s stars.

Ant didn’t avoid pointing out his break from TV duties last year, and after Dec struggled to deliver a line he said: ‘I’ve had a year off what’s your excuse?’

Ant’s re-arrival on the show came after he took a break last year amid various personal woes, with Holly Willoughby stepping in to replace him.

His presenting duties were originally suspended by ITV in March 2018 after he was arrested following a road collision with a green Mini and a maroon BMW.

Ant later pleaded guilty to driving under the influence at Wimbledon Crown Court. He was banned from driving for 20-months and fined a British record £86,000 for drink-driving.

Speaking in August 2018, the presenter confirmed he was taking a temporary break from all presenting duties in order to focus on his recovery.

In a statement, he said: ‘My recovery is going very well and for that to continue having spoken to Dec and ITV, I have made the decision to take the rest of the year off.

‘I’d like to thank both Dec and ITV for their continued support and I look forward to getting back to work in the new year.’

Ant and Dec recently posted a snap of themselves to their Instagram account as they prepare to host the latest series of I’m A Celebrity.

The outing comes after Dec admitted that he thought he had ‘lost’ his best friend of 31 years for good when Ant was arrested for a drink-driving conviction last year.

Speaking in their ITV documentary Ant & Dec’s DNA Journey, Dec said: ‘It has been a tough couple of years and it has tested the bond we have shared since we were 13.’

At the start of the show, the ten celebrities made a dramatic arrival either on a speedboat or in the back of a luxury sports car.

Each of the pairs would have to walk to the end of a wobbling platform 300 ft in the air, and had to press a buzzer, with the winning pair pressing in the fastest time.

Up first were Ian and Jacqueline, but the actress broke down in tears at facing the prospect one of her fears, but eventually agreed to take on the challenge with the knowledge she was paired up with Ian.

Faced against the high winds, the platform constantly shook as the celebrities made their way along the platform and down the ladder before pressing the buzzer at lightning speed.

Meanwhile, Adele and Nadine and Caitlyn and James were taken to a remote spot in the jungle, with Adele reading a laminate reading: ‘Celebrities you are about to embark on a challenge to discover who will become the final power pair. 

Situated downstream is the Pontoon of Doom containing 5 coloured tokens, the pair who retrieved tokens in the quickest time would be the final power pair. However, you will not be travelling there in your pairs. 

James and Adele canoed downstream to their Pontoons which are locked and to open them, Caitlyn and Nadine must skydive from 10,000 ft to collect the keys to open them, you’ll then reunite with your partner at the Pontoon.

‘Oh my god, I thought the helicopter was bad enough’ said Nadine. She continued ‘I love a nice canoe, I really do, a nice relaxing canoe.’ Adele said ‘I tell you what, I’ll call the canoe Nadine after you.’ Nadine looked and said ‘Hopefully not in memory of’ Adele laughed.

At the prospect of a jump from 10,000 feet in the air, Nadine burst into hysterical tears, which led Caitlyn to comfort the star and insist she could complete the challenge.

First to take the leap Caitlyn loved the challenge after saying she’d always wanted to skydive after 40 years as a licenced pilot, gushing: ‘That was so much fun, I want to do it all again, I just want Nadine to get down and be OK.’

Nadine was terrified as she started to jump, and after some screaming appeared to enjoy the ordeal. As she landed she said ‘That was amazing’, Caitlyn gave her a big hug and said she was ‘very proud.’

Nadine and Caitlyn collected their keys and life jackets and went their separate ways to join their partners at The Pontoon of Doom.

At last! Roman, Adele, Nadine and Myles were rewarded with their first night in the main camp, with proper beds and a full dinner for the evening

Caitlyn joined James and they got into their canoe and travelled to The Pontoon of Doom and Nadine did the same, joining her partner Adele.

The klaxon sounded and both pairs started to unscrew the tokens from inside holes full of critters, which sparked incessant screaming from the Big Brother star.

As both pairs eventually completed the challenge they were reunited with the rest of the celebrities, before being told that Nadine and Adele completed it in the fastest time despite her screaming and joined Myles and Roman as the two power pairs.

Dinner couldn’t come a moment too soon for the hungry campers – but their dining experiences could not be any different, as the main camp were rewarded with kangaroo shanks, while the outsiders had just menial portions of rice and beans.

In a series first the stars were cooking on a gas stove rather than a campfire following the recent bushfires in Australia.

As their final day in camp drew to a close, Ant and Dec revealed that votes were finally open for the first Bushtucker Trial of the series, and it was appropriately named Bugged Off.

Heading into the main camp, the presenting pair announced that Caitlyn and Kate were going to face the trial which would see them try to hit a target while lying down in a perspex box packed with various critters. 

It now remains to be seen how they cope with the challenge, especially as they will playing to win food for the celebrities in the luxurious main camp.
