The 70-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Caitlyn Jenner is joining the cast of the survival reality television game show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! The former Olympic athlete appeared in the American version of the show back in 2003, but now she is joining the contestants for season 19 of the British show. "Last time, I did it with a bunch of people from the States who I knew of. This time, it’s a bunch of people from the U.K. who I potentially won’t know," explained the fabulous Caitlyn, according to People.
I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! chronicles the lives of a group of contestants who have to face a series of challenges in order to be voted as the King or Queen of the Jungle. It seems Caitlyn Jenner is not afraid of getting down to work, since "she is very handy making things and good at boiling water."

Caitlyn is very excited about going to Australia for the UK version of the show, "I love the British people and I am looking forward to making some new friends, new allies and getting through it all,” said Jenner, who will be joining Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway, singer Nadine Coyle, retired football Ian Wright, retired rugby player James Jaskell, and former EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa, among others.
After the Jenner/Kardashian family questioned Caitlyn about her motivations for joining the show, she explained she likes new challenges and needed a break. She even mentioned she would love to bring Kim Kardashian's husband rapper Kanye West along with her, since "he’s good to have an intelligent and interesting conversation with."
I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! is set to premiere on ITV on November 17, 2019.
