UPDATED with 2018 cast: Over the past year, the U.K. reality TV show “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” has been losing some of its cast, with 2011 host Emily Atack (“The Inbetweeners”) exiting in 2015 and Michelle Collins (“EastEnders”) departing at the end of 2016.
In other words, this could be the first of many celebrity seasons in 2018, given that the official lineup from E! hasn’t even been announced yet, but the station offered up some more details on the following seasons.
We’re not sure how much news can be fit into a single tweet, so on to the line-up.
