Manu Feildel will be at the helm of the show, however controversial anti-vaxxer Pete Evans won’t be returning.
Manu, 47, told The Daily Telegraph in December: ‘I am a little sad I suppose. Pete and I are great mates and nothing has changed there.
‘We have worked together for a very long time and I love the guy. The fact he won’t be sitting next to me is not my choice.’
Manu went on to say that he does not know who will star on the show alongside him, but some big names are in the mix.
‘I am not sure yet who will be joining me. There have been some international names floating around,’ he said.
