The new series will be the first time the show has been co-hosted by Holly Willoughby, after Declan Donnelly’s usual sidekick, Ant McPartlin, chose to take a break from presenting for the rest of the year.

Willoughby, who is good friends with Donnelly, said at the time of her appointment, “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…”
However, Willoughby, 37, has since admitted she is “terrified” of the jungle critters she is sure to encounter.
“When is it a good time to tell Dec I’m scared of everything that moves?” she joked.
