Holly Willoughby has been confirmed as Dec’s co-host on this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

The This Morning presenter said she ‘couldn’t be more excited’ about taking on the role and that she felt like she’d ‘won a competition’.

She said: “I couldn’t be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure. I love Ant and want to send him my best wishes and support for a continued recovery.

"These are big shoes, not to fill, but just to keep warm for a little bit. Honestly, I’m a huge fan of I’m a Celebrity and actually feel like I’ve won a competition to go and hang out on my favourite show. When is it a good time to tell Dec I’m scared of everything that moves.”

And it looks like Dec is pretty chuffed about the whole thing after he had to confirm he would be without Ant earlier this year.

He said: "I am hugely grateful to Holly for agreeing to accompany me to Australia this year.

"She was at the top of my list and I’m thrilled she said yes. It will be a different kind of series but we will try our best to ensure it is no less fun and eventful for our loyal viewers.

"I am also pleased to hear Holly is scared of everything. I am almost stupidly excited at the thought of watching her during the eating trials.”

We can’t wait to see these two in action!
