Holly Willoughby will co-host this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! alongside Declan Donnelly, ITV has announced.
Willoughby will fill in for Donnelly’s regular partner, Ant McPartlin, while he takes a break from TV presenting.
“I couldn’t be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure,” said the This Morning regular.
Donnelly said he was “hugely grateful”, adding: “I’m thrilled she said yes.”
He said it would be “a different kind of series” without Ant, who stepped down from his TV work in March to have treatment after his drink-driving arrest.
“But we will try our best to ensure it is no less fun and eventful for our loyal viewers,” he continued.
ITV’s Director of Television Kevin Lygo, added: “Holly is a brilliant presenter with a wicked sense of humour who has always enjoyed a great friendship and rapport with Ant and Dec.”
“I have no doubt she will take to jungle life, if not the critters, really quickly.”
