Ant and Dec height: How tall are television presenter duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly?
We are so excited for the new series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! to get underway after the first episode aired on Sunday 21 November.
The new series of the popular show will once again be be filmed at the historic site located in Abergele in North Wales instead of the Australian jungle.

Ant and Dec will host I’m A Celebrity live every night on ITV from the castle, as this year's celebrities get put through their paces.
However, it has got us thinking, we see Ant and Dec on our screens a whole lot due to their success – but how tall are they?
Dec’s height has been joked about on I’m A Celebrity before, and when Holly Willoughby co-hosted the reality series back in 2018, she said of Dec: “He’s loads of fun and he’s five foot one.”
Before you start thinking Dec is five foot one, he’s not really, he’s actually 1.68m tall – or 5 ft 5in in feet and inches.
Hilariously, after Holly’s quip, Dec’s Wikipedia page was changed to say that he was actually 5’1.
It read: “Declan Joseph Oliver Donnelly OBE (born 25 September 1975) is an English television presenter, producer and actor who is loads of fun and only 5’1.”
So how tall is co-presenter Ant? Well, Ant is actually a fair bit taller than Dec, and is is 1.73m tall, making him 5ft 9in.
The year's line-up for I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! includes a host of famous faces, such as Richard Madeley, Arlene Phillips, Danny Miller and Matty Lee.
The launch show saw the stars take part in the first challenge of the series, The Plank, where they must walk out on to two scaffolding planks on the edge of a cliff top in Wales, facing an enormous drop below.
The first trial also aired, with GMB star Richard Madeley and The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge both being selected to take part.
The pair won the challenge despite Frankie recently claiming she was "scared of most things" prior to entering the castle.
Frankie previously explained: “I think people will be surprised to see me doing I’m A Celebrity and I am scared of most things, but I really want to push myself.
“I’m scared of rats, I am a fussy eater and I have a bit of a phobia of ketchup, so a pint of penis terrifies me! Any of the eating challenges will be my idea of hell.
"I also hate spiders in my own home, being trapped in small spaces is a big thing for me and pretty much all of that is likely to happen which makes me go, ‘Why the h*** are you doing it?’ And so that is exactly why I am doing it!”
I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues on Tuesday 22 November on ITV.
