Ant will not be joining Dec in Australia this year… so who could be his replacement?
After Ant McPartlin released a statement confirming he would not be presenting this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, so tongues began wagging as to who would take his place alongside Dec Donnelly.
While nobody has been confirmed as of yet, there are a few names that could potentially be lined up for the role.
For some of their recent commitments, Dec has been going it alone – so it very well could be the case that he takes the reigns of I’m a Celeb… solo this year. However, the thing most viewers love the most about the show is the banter between him and Ant, so it’s likely they will enlist a co-host for one year only.
Scarlett’s a regular face on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway so it wouldn’t be a surprise if she was chosen given that she already has a relationship with the presenting duo. She’s also a previous I’m a Celeb... winner herself so that can only help!
Fans love Stephen’s chemistry with Ant and Dec on Britain’s Got Talent, so he could be a front runner to step into Ant’s shoes.
Joel’s presented I’m a Celebrity… Extra Camp and has been a contestant in the jungle too, so he’s definitely got the credentials to be put forward for the job.
Caz is no stranger to fronting massive shows for ITV, including Love Island and The X Factor, so she could definitely be in the running for the gig.
