It has been revealed by ITV bosses that Declan Donnelly will stay as the host of 'I'm A Celebrity', who will be getting a new co-host whilst Ant continues with his recovery.
ITV bosses have revealed that Dec will be heading off to the jungle to host this year's 'Im A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here' but Ant will not be going with him, as he stays off our TV screens whilst he "is doing everything he should be doing to get better."
Speaking at The Edinburgh International Television Festival, Kevin Lygo spoke about Ant's recovery going well, as well as the fact Den will continue to host the show without his long time co-host, but won't be alone.
He said: "[Ant's] not going to go to the jungle but Dec is, we'll find someone to go with Dec."
"The good news is he's [Ant is] doing well, he's doing everything he should be doing to get better."
"We collectively thought let's give it a good enough time off because this thing (his recovery) is a slow procedure so that's what we've decided to do."
We're not sure to make of the news that Ant & Dec are going to be however temporarily separated, this is pretty big news, and we really want to know who they're going to find as Ant's replacement?!
