Holly I'm A Celeb Rumour

There have been lots of rumours flying around about the next series of the celebrity reality show.

Queen of morning TV Holly Willoughby has spoken out about the rumours flying around suggesting she could be the one to replace Ant McPartlin alongside Declan Donnelly on I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!

The Geordie presenter has recently been admitted to rehab and is taking some time out of the limelight which leaves Dec on his own for the next series of the jungle show.

A source previously told the Daily Star "Holly is the number one choice, she's the nation's favourite and already a huge fan of the show - the perfect Jane of the jungle to Dec's Tarzan"

"Building on-screen chemistry and relationships is what Holly does best which is perfect for the jungle".

It hasn't even been confirmed that Ant won't be taking a break from I'm A Celeb but it was revealed that ITV bosses were fully supportive of Ant should he choose to take a "12 month sabbatical" from presenting duties.

A TV insider told The Metro "Formally, Ant has no work commitments until November and obviously the hope is that he will be completely better by then, and able to fulfil them. But ITV will not rush him in any way, and the feeling is he must take as long as he needs."
