Fans took to Twitter to share their confusion as the stars began being introduced, with one user writing, "#ImACelebrityAU is really desperate to find actual celebrities."

"Kerri Anne finally said yes cos no one remembers who she is," another added.


"Is being on #ImACelebrityAU a sign your career is in the toilet? I don't really know and I care even less," a third joked.

"Scrolling through the celebs that went into the jungle thinking either I don't know them or don't care enough about them to have to watch this season..." someone else said.

"Gotta love how all these 'famous' people have to explain who they are to each other," one user joked.

"Dear @Channel10AU Why didn't you get some real celebrities. I don't know who these people are," another said.

"I have to be honest, they may as well chuck a bunch of unknown randoms in the jungle instead cause who tf are most of these people," someone added.

Others enjoyed the show, with one user writing, "Great first episode. So good to have the show back live, and in South Africa."

"So good to have #ImACelebrityAU back live! There's a glorious unpredictable energy that has been sorely missed," another added.

"Hang on… @imacelebrity is actually LIVE this year?! I must have missed the memo… this is the best format!" a third fan wrote.


"I’m so happy that #ImACelebrityAU is back I love this show its great," someone else added.

Other stars appearing on the show include radio host Woody Whitelaw, TV host Bianca Hunt, celebrity chef Anna Polyviou and Geordie Shore's Nathan Henry.
