The Wildlife Warrior will be making his reality TV hosting debut later this year.

Robert Irwin has revealed he will be bringing his entire family with him to South Africa when he films I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! later this year, including his girlfriend Rorie Buckey.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph about the upcoming gig, Robert teased that the “prep is in full force” and he’s “really excited” about the opportunity.

“I’ve got everyone, including my little niece Grace, coming over, so the whole family are there,” he told the publication, adding that it’s going to be “fun”.

“Literally the entire Irwin family are coming over. Rorie’s coming over. Everyone.”

Robert made a cameo appearance on the reality show in 2016 alongside his mother Terri and sister Bindi where they spent a few hours in the camp as part of a challenge.

He recently told Fitzy & Wippa with Kate Ritchie that he loved the experience of being on set and knew from that moment it was something he wanted to be a part of in the future.

“I remember when I was probably like 10 years old when I went over and saw it, watching Julia up there and Chris I thought, one day I want to host that. And now I'm doing it, it’s kind of weird,” he recalled.
