Channel 10 has the new season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Australia will premiere on Sunday, March 24.

In the upcoming series, Robert Irwin will co-host the show with returning host Julia Morris.

He is set to bring some real 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 difficult task replacing popular host Dr. Chris Brown with cast members who were impressed with Robert’s natural charm in the audition.

A-listers are reportedly ‘desperate’ to appear on the show thanks to their friendship with the handsome Wildlife Warrior.

“The Irwins have more than their fair share of A-list celebrities in their circle, including the Hemsworths and Melissa Joan Hart, who is the most rumored contestant this year,” a production insider told Yahoo! Lifestyle.

‘There are a few celebs we ask every year and maybe stars like Melissa or Jean-Claude Van Damme will finally say yes this year. It’s our year to catch some of those white whales.’

Back in October, USA Online Post Australia revealed that Robert was going to drop nearly half a million dollars for his month-and-a-half-long excursion into the wilderness 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 reckon he’ll be ‘worth every penny’.

This is not the first time that Robert has appeared in the jungle, as in 2016 the wildlife fighter appeared as a guest on the show with his mother, Terri, and sister Bindi.

Robert currently boasts 4.8 million Instagram followers, while posts with his sweetheart, 19, continue to go viral.
