Some Saturday Night Takeaway fans were left "disappointed" after some "big news" during the latest episode on Saturday night.

Hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly revealed they would be dropping a 'big announcement' about their hit show I'm A Celebrity before the episode.

They confirmed they would be revealing the line-up for the special All Stars series to air this year, filmed in South Africa.

During the show the time came and Ant and Dec announced the names taking part in the pre-recorded special, I’m A Celebrity… South Africa.

Amongst the line-up are former stars Shaun Ryder, Amir Khan, Jordan Banjo and Phil Tufnell.

Joining them are Janice Dickinson, Fatima Whitbread, Paul Burrell, Helen Flanagan and Carol Vorderman.

The show announced the line-up with a game of Read My Lips which was I'm A Celebrity themed.

One by one the names were shared, before the full confirmed line-up was read out - months on from reports over which stars had signed up.

Many viewers were pleased to finally know who was and wasn't on the list, while it's been confirmed more names are yet to be announced.

But some fans were not happy about those confirmed, with many suggesting there were other stars who would have been better for an All Stars spin-off.

Taking to Twitter after the big news, one viewer commented: "Bit of a disappointing lineup tbf."

Another said: "For 'All Stars' this line up is dire. Its as dull as the background! Roll on Australia in November."

A third added: "Quite disappointing," as a fourth viewer tweeted: "Anyone else think the Im a celeb all star lineup is shocking?"

Meanwhile, chatting with Lorraine Kelly at the start of this year, Ant and Dec revealed a few more secrets about the upcoming special.

Dec explained: "It’s kind of an all-stars… Taking some of your favourite campmates from the last 20 years and taking them for a brand new challenge in South Africa.

"So it's a completely different landscape and they're doing it again. They're competing to become the first ever I'm A Celebrity ‘Legend of the Savanna’... It’s very special."

Revealing the differences to the live Australian series, Ant added: "And it's slightly different to the show we do in Australia because they go head to head in trials and whoever loses leaves. It’s quite brutal, so that’s how we decided the winner."

Dec then chimed in and declared: "We’ve done it, we’ve shot it and it’s really, really good."

Saturday Night Takeaway airs live at 7pm on Saturday on ITV1 and ITVX.
