Just five days to go! I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star Miguel Maestre lands in South Africa to begin filming the new season
He’s the only confirmed contestant from the upcoming season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Australia.
And the countdown for Sunday night’s premiere officially began on Tuesday, when celebrity chef Miguel Maestre landed in South Africa.
The 40-year-old documented his arrival on Instagram and looked excited at the prospect of spending several weeks in the jungle.

Miguel shared footage of himself walking through the airport, before throwing it back to older photos of his ‘last meal’ in Sydney: a 600g steak.
He pumped himself up by listening to the Rocky soundtrack and asked his social media ‘amigos’ if they had any advice for him.
The Spanish-born TV personality also revealed he had packed several pairs of Budgy Smugglers.
Exciting! Miguel went through a myriad of facial expressions while listening to Enrique Iglesias through his air-pods, telling fans that he was excited to be headed towards the filming location
It’s not the first time! Following on with a bizarre tradition of sharing his jocks, Miguel snapped a close-up picture of his Spanish flag buggy smugglers laying out on his bed
Miguel’s chosen charity is suicide prevention organisation R U OK?
‘A lot of my friends have had serious mental health issues and lost their battles,’ he recently told TV Week.
It was a ‘no brainer’ for Miguel when he was given the opportunity to represent R U OK? on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
