I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! fans are threatening to “boycott” the ITV series before it even begins.

The reality programme fronted by Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly is set to hit screens on Sunday, November 19.

And while ITV bosses are remaining tight-lipped about which stars are heading down under this year, Nigel Farage is hotly tipped to be one of them.

The other celebrities thought to be joining the former MP are Denise Van Outen, Tony Bellew, Jamie-Lynn Spears, Nick Pickard, and Josie Gibson.

The other names thrown into the mix could be Fred Siriex, Frankie Dettori, Nella Rose, Danielle Harold, Sam Thompson, and Marvin Humes.

However, many fans are already threatening to “switch off” the ITV programme if Nigel appears as part of the line-up.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, @martin_m98606 fumed: “#ImAceleb has got it wrong this year recruiting you. Many of us will be switching off. You don’t need £1m.”

@AIImmigrant asked: “Do advertisers really want their brand to be forever associated with Farage? Boycott.”

While @Day17_Anne added: “Yes it is insulting @ITV. It is a boycott from me. Hope #ImAceleb is boycotted in droves!” (sic)

@Muggsy14 went on: “No I’m A Celebrity in this house for us this year if Farage is going to be on it. #ImAceleb.”

@purplepenguin81 complained: “Another year of not watching #imaceleb because @ITV can not read the room and want headlines over the majority of public feelings. I hope you all including @antanddec are proud of yourselves for turning a much-loved show that bought some much-needed entertainment into a farce!” (sic)

“Disappointing lineup this year #ImAceleb,” @KWALKER____ tweeted.

However, not everyone has been left disappointed by the rumoured line-up, with @NLinnane commenting: “I’m actually looking forward to #ImAceleb

Nigel has been open about being approached by ITV bosses to appear on the show.

During a recent appearance on his GB News show, he said: “I have an existing Australian visa so if I chose to go there on holiday I could without too much difficulty.

“I’ve thought about [the offer] hard, for the last ten days or so. It’s quite a big decision and quite an unconventional thing for me to do.

“There is a big, young audience out there who don’t really have anyone that speaks to them, it seems to me, about current affairs and politics in Britain. That’s what tempts me, but I haven’t signed a contract… yet.”

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! returns next Sunday at 9pm on ITV.
