Watch: Ant and Dec star in new promo for I'm A Celebrity

I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! has debuted its first trailer for the 2021 series, starring Ant and Dec as knights.

The hosting duo will be back at Gwrych Castle in Abergele, Wales for the second year in a row when the 21st series launches this autumn, and went with the theme for the advert.

It begins by showing a rugged Welsh landscape with knights on horseback as a voiceover says: "It is said that two mighty warriors would return to stage the ultimate challenge of endurance."

The shot then cuts to Ant on a tiny pony and Dec on a large horse as Ant says: "I think we're on the wrong horses."

Dec replies: "Dunno what you mean."

Celebrities signed up to this series may well be feeling nervous, as the trailer hints at particularly tough challenges - including having to eat two pigs' testicles rather than one in the infamous eating trial.

The voiceover finishes: "Here there be dragons and this year it shall be more gruelling than ever."

I'm A Celebrity usually takes place in the Australian jungle, but in 2020 it relocated to Gwrych Castle for the first time ever due to coronavirus travel restrictions.

With tough rules still in place, the show has been setting up base at its Welsh outpost for another year.

Ant and Dec recently posted a teaser on Instagram of them being shown cards of this year's celebrity line-up with the mystery faces blanked out, with one reveal causing Dec's jaw to drop.

The current reigning Queen of the Castle is last year's winner Giovanna Fletcher, whose husband Tom is competing in this year's Strictly Come Dancing.
