Joel Dommett has confirmed Ant McPartlin will return to "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!"

The 41-year-old presenter's admittance to rehab earlier this year for drugs and alcohol addiction left the future of the creepy-crawly show up in the air as bosses didn't know whether he would be well enough to film the forthcoming series alongside his long-time co-star Declan Donnelly.

But the 31-year-old comedian - who finished second in last year's show and will now present the spin-off "Extra Camp" alongside winner Scarlett Moffatt - has hinted that the loveable host is much better and will head to Australia with him and the team at the beginning of next month.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Joel teased: "They're [Ant and Dec] good guys and it'll be fun to be with them and not eating something disgusting.

"It'll be nice to hang out with them and not be eating a goat's d**k. We head there on November 12th and then we're there for the whole thing which will be weird from the other side."

Speculation about who would take Ant's place on the show if he decided not to go Down Under has been rife for months, but it's believed his friend Dec would also walk away from the show.

A source said recently: "He has said the last thing he would do is go to Australia without him."

Ant - who has presented the show since 2002 - spent two months in rehab for painkiller addiction earlier this year but is said to be making good progress and will be ready to host the new series.

However, filming for the promotional advert is currently behind schedule as he decided to jet off to the US with his manager last month in order to get some more chill time before his return.
