Holly Willoughby to replace Ant on I’m A Celebrity


Holly Willoughby will host this year's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! alongside Declan Donnelly, ITV has revealed.

She will replace Ant McPartlin, who is taking the rest of the year off after a drink-driving conviction which led to him being banned from driving for 20 months and fined £86,000.

The 37-year-old daytime presenter says she loves Ant and won't try to fill his shoes – but will keep them warm.

Speaking about McPartlin's break from the show at this year's Edinburgh TV festival, ITV's director of television Kevin Lygo said: "The good news is that he's doing really well, he's doing everything he should be doing to get better.

"We collectively thought, let's give it a good amount of time off, this is a slow procedure, that's what we've decided to do."

Saturday Night Takeaway – which is also hosted by presenting double act Ant and Dec – will not air during McPartlin's break.
