Dec Donnelly was certainly a hands-on dad as he took his two young children to the beach in Australia, ahead of the launch of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! on Sunday.
The 48 year old presenter arrived in Australia early, alongside his wife Ali Astall and their children, Isla, five, and one year old Jack, to spend some quality time together before he fronts I'm A Celeb alongside his longtime co-host and best pal, Ant McPartlin.
In new pics, Dec was spotted wearing a pair of navy blue swimming shorts with different-coloured turtles printed on them, as he also donned a dark blue t-shirt.
He could be seen carrying his son, Jack, in his arms, with the little one dressed in a blue hat to keep the sun off his face, whilst Isla walked by their sides, wearing pink and chatting happily to her dad.
It comes amid reports that a deadly brown snake has been seen near Ant and Dec's accommodation in the past few days.
Signs have been put up warning locals on a beach entrance at Kingscliff in New South Wales that a "large brown snake" was seen there in recent days. It is thought to be an Eastern brown snake, one of the top ten most deadliest snakes found in Australia.
Excitement for the new series is reaching fever pitch, with some celebrities having already touched down in Australia – although no one has yet been confirmed to star in it.
UK politician Nigel Farage was seen walking through Brisbane airport on Sunday, 11 November.
Despite the rumours, Nigel failed to confirm if he was going on I'm A Celeb, and instead claimed that he was in the country to 'surf', as he said: "I'm just here surfing for the week."
He went on to say: "I can't confirm I am doing it [I'm A Celeb] but I might be. I just think there is a big young audience out there that watches the programme which is worth talking to.
"I have been messing about on TikTok for the last few months and you would be surprised, a lot of young people out there are interested in what I have got to say."
YouTube and TikTok star Nella Rose, 26, became the second famous face to land in Brisbane on Sunday evening local time.
She sported a pair of sunglasses as she posed for photographs at the airport, before heading off to her hotel on the Gold Coast with an ITV chaperone.
Nella, who will be the youngest celebrity on this year's series of the ITV show, joked: "I am here for a holiday," before getting into a car.
This Morning's Josie Gibson is also expected to land in Australia soon, after she was spotted at Heathrow airport, amid reports that she's also heading into the jungle.
