Ladies and gents, mark your calendars because the newest season of I’m a Celeb Australia premiers on January 3rd.

While we have plenty of tea about who might be entering the jungle in 2022, let’s take a trip down memory lane to tie us over while we await the official announcements!

The ruling queen of Australian reality TV, Abbie Chatfield, became a quick fan fave during season 7 of I’m a Celeb Australia.

The former-Bachie star beat out Network Ten’s own Grant Denyer for the win, and of course, Twitter trolls had a sh*t ton of opinions about it!

I’m a Celeb wasn’t Abbie’s last reality TV venture. She recently hosted Love Island Afterparty.

Abbie also has a successful podcast called It’s a Lot and is an ambassador for Vush, a sexual wellness company.

Season 6: Miguel Maestre

Everyone’s favourite TV chef, Miguel Maestre, was crowned King of the Jungle in season 6 of I’m a Celeb Australia.

The other contestants were understandably stoked to have The Living Room Australia star in the jungle. However, Miguel’s famous cooking skills didn’t do much to make the monotonous rice and beans taste any less bleh…

The Spanish-born Australian chef took the crown from runner-up Dale Thomas.

Miguel continues to co-host The Living Room alongside Amanda Keller, Baz Dubois, and I’m a Celeb Australia host Dr Chris Brown.

Season 5: Richard Reid

Australian-based American entertainment reporter Richard Reid stole the hearts of I’m a Celeb fan from episode one.

An instant fan fave, it was no shock to anyone when Richard was crowned King of the Jungle for season 5. Goggle Box’s Yvie Jones was the season 5 runner up.

In 1999, when working for Northwest Cable News in Seattle, Richard caused a stir by becoming the first openly gay on-air personality in the region.

Richard is most well known for his daily gossip segment on Today, which he hosted from 2006-2015.

I’m a Celebrity Australia was not the reporter’s first crack at Australian reality TV. Prior to I’m a Celeb, he had a stint on The Celebrity Apprentice Australia.

Today, Richard is a regular contributor to Network Ten’s morning show Studio 10 and an ambassador for Beyond Blue. According to his Instagram he is also a “trivia superstar.”

Season 4: Fiona O’Loughlin

Aussie comedian Fiona O’Loughlin left singer Shannon Noll crying “what about me, it isn’t fair” after beating him to the crown on season 4 of I’m a Celebrity Australia.

In late 2020 Fiona made a heartbreaking admission about her stint on the show. She told The Daily Telegraph that her struggle with alcoholism got so bad during her time in the jungle that she resorted to drinking hand sanitiser.

“I freaked and planned to do it. In the middle of the night I just f**king did it. I waited until everyone was asleep and I drank hand sanitiser,” she confessed.

Despite winning $100,000 for Angel Flight, she admitted that she wasn’t in the right mindset to take part in the show.

Fiona has been sober for over a year now. She has since released a book, Truths from an Unreliable Witness, which has also been turned into a stage show.

Season 3: Casey Donovan

Singer Casey Donovan rose to fame after winning season 2 of Australian Idol in 2004.

Casey continued her reality TV win-streak with I’m a Celeb Australia, claiming the win over Dane Swan and fellow musician Natalie Bassingthwaighte.

After a tedious 46 days in the South African jungle, Casey was surprised to win. She even spilled that she had considered dropping out of the show several times!

Throughout her time in the jungle, Casey spoke frankly about her struggles with anxiety. She hoped that her openness would inspire others living with anxiety to step outside their comfort zones.

She continues to write music and has a tour scheduled for 2022.

Season 2: Brendan Fevola

Controversial AFL star Brendan Fevola snagged the jungle crown from runner-up Paul Harrogan in season 2 of I’m a Celebrity Australia.

Brendan’s AFL career ended after a string of high profile scandals, and throughout the season he spoke openly of his struggles with alcoholism, gambling addiction and depression.

The former footy player confessed his hope that his appearance on the show would help repair his public image.

He told the cameras “I want everyone to realise this is the real me — I’m not an idiot. That’s pretty much it.”

His plan obviously worked, as Australia voted to keep him in the jungle ‘til the very end!

Brendan now spends his time looking after his three daughters.

Season 1: Freddie Flintoff

The inaugural season of I’m a Celebrity Australia was an absolute cracker.

With a cast including comedians Chrissie Swan and Joel Creasy, as well as former The Bachelor Australia star Tim Robards, it was a tough crowd to beat for the crown.

However, English cricket star Freddie Flintoff won the hearts of the nation after entering as a surprise intruder on day 17.

His British charm (and maaaybe his killer looks) made him a quick fan favourite. Freddie was ultimately crowned King of the Jungle.

He has since made guest appearances on The Project and co-hosted Australian Ninja Warrior and Top-Gear.

Catch season 8 of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here Australia on Network Ten from January 3rd, 2022.
