Vicky Pattison has jetted off to Australia to get started on this year's I'm A Celebrity series.

Former Queen of the jungle Vicky might be handing over her reign to a new famous face this year, but she will be in Australia to watch it all unfold as she's teaming up with Joe Swash, Stacey Solomon and comedian Chris Ramsey on I'm A Celeb's new spinoff show.

And seeming pretty keen to kick things off, Vicky revealed she is already en route to Oz.

The 28-year-old posted a photo of her travelling essentials to Instagram and told followers: "Let's do this... Next stop... AUSTRALIA."

Exciting, right?!

She wasn't the only one heading overseas, as Stacey made sure to keep fans updated on Snapchat while she and Joe headed to the airport too.

The Loose Women star also tweeted: "Yaaaas! I can't wait for my favourite show to start, and then I can talk about all the goss after it every night with my jungle besties."

Following the departure of Laura Whitmore, I'm A Celebrity's ITV2 spinoff has undergone a bit of a revamp.

Not only does it now have a new presenting team to boot, but it has also changed its name from I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now to I'm A Celebrity: Extra Camp.

Joe had worked alongside Laura on the show previously, but he is now returning with girlfriend Stacey, Chris and Vicky.

Their additions were confirmed in September and addressing the news with fans, Vicky gushed: "Winning the jungle last year was the most incredible experience of my life - I knew it was a moment that was going to take some beating! But I can honestly say joining the I'm A Celeb team as a presenter has almost surpassed it!

"The crew are fantastic and I can't wait to work alongside @realjoeswashy @staceysolomon and @iamchrisramsey who are all brilliant!! I wasn't ready to say goodbye to my jungle experience just yet and luckily, after getting my dream job - I don't have to!!"

Vicky continued: "I'm dying to get back in that jungle and hopefully they'll still let me give some of the trials a go! Can't let the camp mates have all the fun can we?! I'm buzzing like an old fridge!! NOW GET ME TO AUSTRALIA!!!"

I'm A Celebrity returns on Sunday 13 November and fans are already itching to know which famous faces will be heading into the jungle this time round. There's a total of 30 celebrities who have been rumoured so far and you can get a full rundown here.
