Channel 10 has announced the new season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Australia will be premiering on Sunday, 24 March.
The upcoming series will see Robert Irwin co-host the show alongside returning host Julia Morris.
He is set to bring some genuine Hollywood star power to the South African jungle as he makes his debut.
Robert beat out big names Sam Pang, Jimmy Rees, Curtis Stone, Beau Ryan and Tristan MacManus for the TV hosting role.
The network had a hard task replacing popular host Dr Chris Brown, with casting impressed with Robert’s natural charm in the audition.

According to reports, A-listers are ‘desperate’ to appear on the show thanks to their friendship with the handsome Wildlife Warrior.
‘The Irwins have more than a fair share of A-list celebrities in their circle including the Hemsworths and Melissa Joan Hart, who is the most rumoured contestant this year,’ a production insider told Yahoo! Lifestyle.
‘There are some celebs we ask every year and maybe this year stars like Melissa or Jean-Claude Van Damme will finally say yes. It’s our year to catch a few of those white whales.’

Back in October, Daily Mail Australia revealed that Robert is set to pocket almost half a million dollars for his month-and-a-half-long foray into the wilds of South Africa.
According to a well placed source at Channel 10, Irwin ‘will earn over $430,000’ from his six-week stint in the jungle, and they think he will be ‘worth every cent’.
It isn’t the first time Robert has appeared in the jungle as in 2016 the wildlife warrior appeared as a guest on the show alongside his mum, Terri, and sister Bindi.
Robert currently boasts 4.8million Instagram followers, while posts featuring his sweetheart, 19, continue to go viral.
