I’m a Celebrity 2023: Jockey Frankie Dettori Spotted in Australia Weeks Before Premiere

First ‘I’m a Celebrity’ 2023 Contestant in Australia

With the much-anticipated return of “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” just around the corner, the first contestant rumored to be part of the reality show has already touched down in Australia, building excitement for the upcoming season.

Official Start Date Revealed

The launch date for this year’s season of “I’m a Celebrity” was officially confirmed during an ad break for the first episode of Good Morning Britain this week.

The show is set to make its return to the airwaves on Sunday, November 19.

Early Arrival: Jockey Frankie Dettori

While the show’s start date was announced, jockey Frankie Dettori made an early arrival in Australia.

He was spotted in the heart of the country, having just completed a successful race in the United States over the weekend.

The sportsman took to social media to share his plans, revealing his presence in California before heading to Melbourne for the Melbourne Cup.

Jockey’s Busy Schedule

Despite his early arrival, Frankie Dettori has a busy schedule involving TV work and promotional opportunities related to racing throughout the week. This deviates from the traditional one-week early arrival of contestants.

Following his activities in Melbourne, it’s expected that the jockey will take a domestic flight to Brisbane to join ITV executives and fellow castmates.

Rumors of Dettori Joining the Show

While Frankie Dettori has not officially confirmed his participation in “I’m a Celebrity,” his schedule suggests he has ample time to take part in the reality show, given his next major race is scheduled for Boxing Day.

ITV typically keeps the lineup a well-guarded secret until closer to the mid-November transmission.

Other Expected Contestants

Rumors are swirling about other potential contestants joining Dettori on the show. These include This Morning host Josie Gibson and Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage.

The hosting duo of Geordie presenters, Ant and Dec, will once again take the reins for the series.

Dettori’s Recent Career

Frankie Dettori, who recently wrapped up his 37-year riding career in the UK, surprised fans when he announced a return from retirement to race in the United States starting next year.

In a triumphant weekend, he secured another win aboard Inspiral at the Breeders’ Cup in America.

Awaiting the Premier of ‘I’m a Celebrity’ 2023

With the first contestant’s early arrival setting the stage, fans eagerly await the premiere of “I’m a Celebrity” 2023, ready for another thrilling season of challenges, surprises, and unforgettable moments.
