Fans are just days away from the new series of I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and ahead of the launch, a number of stars have landed in Australia. While this year's line-up won't be confirmed until the start of the show, the celebrity sightings in Brisbane Airport seem to have given the game away. Click through the gallery to see who's entering the jungle…

Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly are gearing up for their presenting roles, with Dec playfully poking fun at his best friend Ant McPartlin, who has stepped down from his duties this year. Sharing a photo on Instagram with Holly, Dec wrote: "Ant's looking well don't you think!? I'm joking of course, Holly and I are looking forward to welcoming you to Australia next Sunday night. D." Holly also shared the official picture, writing simply: "And so it begins… @imacelebrity," alongside plenty of spider emojis.

The new series is due to start on Sunday 18 November at 9pm.

Fleur East

X Factor finalist Fleur East was pictured wheeling her suitcases through Brisbane Airport on Sunday, exactly one week before the show launches. The singer, who was rumoured to be joining the show back in September, is a firm part of the ITV family, having finished runner-up in Simon Cowell's singing competition.

Harry Redknapp

Harry Redknapp's name was bandied around in October, when the retired football manager was said to have signed on the dotted line. Harry, 71, also arrived in Australia on Sunday, and he seems to have packed lightly – only bringing one suitcase for the reality TV show.

Seriously - A top guy, so let's get behind him."
