There’s going to be a bit of a shake-up in this year’s I’m a Celebrity….Get Me Out of Here!, with long-running co-host Ant McPartlin replaced by This Morning’s Holly Willoughby
To many, Willoughby seemed the obvious choice due to her long friendship with Declan Donnelly – but now the presenter has revealed that she’s dreading some parts of the ITV series, specifically the trademark eating challenges…
“There’s three things I’m not looking forward to,” Willoughby said while hosting This Morning.
Arguably, her squeamishness could present some issues considering the central importance of the eating challenges – but on the other hand it’s not entirely a surprise, with Willoughby well known for struggling when animal guests joined This Morning and Donnelly himself acknowledging her dislike of the eating challenges in his statement about her new I’m a Celeb role.
“I am also pleased to hear Holly is scared of everything,” he said. “I am almost stupidly excited at the thought of watching her during the eating trials!”
Taking all bets on how long she can last without needing a bucket…
I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! returns to ITV later this year
