If you missed the premiere of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, here are the best moments.

On Sunday night, nine Aussie celebrities (and one American) were unleashed in the South African jungle during the first episode of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here for 2017.

They’ll spend up to six weeks camping in the jungle, living off staples like rice and beans, competing in ridiculous challenges, and trying to remember each other’s names.

These are the most hilarious (and awkward) moments from last night’s episode:

  1. No one knew who Ash Pollard was.

When the feisty former My Kitchen Rules contestant sauntered into the jungle, with all the confidence of Beyonce at the Grammy’s, her fellow team members Lisa Curry and Steve Price, had no idea who she was.

Price had just finished telling Curry that his biggest fear was someone turning up that he didn’t recognise, when Pollard rocked up. And it got really, really awkward.

Price introduced himself to Pollard, to which she replied: “I’ve met you before”.

“I’ve stalked you a few times, actually. We live in South Yarra together,” she added.

The former Dancing With The Stars contestant went on to explain that she and Price also have the same manager.

Curry then introduces herself, but Pollard still doesn't tell them her name. At this point Steve Price gives up and just asks Pollard what her name is.

When Curry asks: "“Now, you're a singer, aren't you?” Pollard finally realises that these people have no idea who she is and so she tells them that she was on MKR and Dancing With The Stars, to which Curry replies: “Oh, thank God. You can do the cooking while you're here!”

We can't wait to see what she does with the rice and beans...

2. Tom Arnold's mid-life crisis.

Tom Arnold had no idea who any of the Aussie celebs were. He kinda just stood in the background quietly contemplating every moment of his career that had led him to this point. We feel ya, Tom.

Laura Brodnik and Tiffany Dunk guess which celebs will go into the jungle on The Binge. Post continues... 

3. Casey Donovan made a funny.

The former Australian Idol winner made headlines in recent years when she shared the story of her personal experience with catfishing. Donovan was catfished by a female friend for six years, who made her believe she was in a long-distance relationship with a man.

So when the producers decided to lock Donovan in a tank, and fill it water and several large fish, her one liner: “I THINK IT’S A CATFISH!” stole the bloody show.

Good work, Donovan.

4.  This funny tweet from Matt Okine.

For weeks rumours were circulating that former Triple J Breakfast presenter, Matt Okine, was the comedian heading into the jungle. So last night when it was revealed that the comedian the promotional ads had been hinting at, was actually Nazeem Hussain, Okine tweeted: "See?? I'm not going to the damn jungle! Even rumours think me and nazeem are the same people."

Back in 2015, Rolling Stone famously mis-labelled a photo of Okine as Hussain, just weeks after The Age confused Hussain with Waleed Aly.

5. Jay Laga’aia dabbing.

Because who doesn't love it when your favourite Play School presenter makes such a daggy dad move? #dadjokesforlife.

The second episode of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here airs tonight at 7.30pm on TEN.
