Shock reunion on I’m A Celebrity…South Africa tonight
Tonight’s episode of I’m A Celebrity…South Africa saw a former star of the show make a shock return to the show.
Last night’s episode (Monday, April 24) saw Gillian McKeith return to the show…in a box.
As Gillian jumped out of the box in tonight’s show, Shaun’s face was a picture.
Shaun and Gillian famously clashed when they were on the show together back in 2010. Gillian finished in eighth place that year. Meanwhile, Shaun ended up being runner-up.
“I couldn’t let you do this without ‘Jungle Gill’. Hi! I’m back again! 12 years later on the I’m A Celeb show,” Gillian said as she returned to the show.

Shaun reacts to Gillian’s arrival
The Happy Monday’s star made his feelings about Gillian’s arrival known in the Bush Telegraph.
“Gillian came out of a box. I was very surprised. I probably could have done without it being Gillian, yeah,” he said.
“How do I feel about Shaun Ryder being here? I said hello, he said hello, it was all very cordial. What can I say?” Gillian said in the Bush Telegraph.
In camp, Paul Burrell asked Shaun about his experiences with Janice.
“Is she as mad as a box of frogs?” he asked. “Yeah… I nearly killed her,” Shaun replied.
“I’ve been trying to be nice to her. I’m a different person, whatever. I don’t think Gillian was pleased to see me,” Shaun said in the Bush Telegraph.
