Declan Donnelly is braving a long haul flight with his two-month-old daughter, as he heads out to Australia to kick off filming for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Looking like one proud dad, the 43-year-old scooped the little one up in his arms before heading off to Heathrow Airport.

Dec couldn’t wipe the smile off his face as he cosied into his baby girl, who was resting her little head on his shoulder.

The star had made sure the tot was all wrapped up, as she looked adorable in a pink baby-grow and grey blanket.

Dec was joined by his wife Ali, who is also going to be travelling to Australia with her family.

The pair carefully unloaded their car and could be seen dragging their luggage towards the terminal before setting off on their adventure.

Both Ali and Dec appeared to be in high spirits as they said goodbye to their loved ones in the car park.

This year, Dec will be joined by Holly Willoughby as his I’m A Celeb co-host, as she will be filling in for Ant McPartlin while he finishes his treatment.

The This Morning presenter has already left England for Australia after treating her kids to a Five Guys shake.

She too will be taking her family with her, as she revealed all three of her children and her husband were planning on staying Down Under.

The star said: ‘You’re sort of working out the logistics of how you’re going to go, and how long for and taking the kids – the kids are coming with me – and I was speaking to the school.

‘And then Dan, and my mum and dad are coming out for a bit. And then suddenly it’s all sorted logistically.’

Scarlett Moffatt will also be making her return for the spin-off show Extra Camp, with Joe Swash.

She spoke about her excitement to have Holly on board, and how relieved she is to have another girl around.

The 28-year-old told Metro.co.uk: ‘I haven’t [spoken to Holly much]. It is very testosterone based because there’s a lot of men, so I’m excited for there to be another woman.

‘I think it will be really fun and I’m really excited because she’s never been over or seen it.

‘It’s going to be exciting watching her see everything for the first time, especially the smells because nothing prepares you for the smells.’

While no celebrities have yet been confirmed for the series, it is rumoured that Inbetweeners star Emily Atack, X Factor runner-up Fleur East and The Vamps’ James McVey will be entering the jungle.
