The This Morning presenter has jetted to Australia to stand in for Ant McPartlin as he recovers from his addiction battle.

Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly have teased the chemistry that will make them a hit with I'm A Celeb fans in a new trailer for this year's series.

The mum-of-three, 37, was personally invited to stand in for her pal Ant McPartlin, 42, as he takes time away from the spotlight to recover from addiction issues that have plagued him for the last 18 months.

And in a new clip, it's clear to see that the bubbly blonde has easily slipped in to his shoes... and spot to the right of his childhood pal, Dec.

In the clip, which will be aired on ITV tonight, sees Dec joke that tonight there will be "ten... no eleven" new celebs in the jungle... including Holly.

"You finally got me here," she says - clearly excited about the few weeks ahead.

Earlier this week the line-up for the new series was revealed - and it's one of the best in years.

John Barrowman, Harry Redknapp, Emily Atack, and Noel Edmonds are all due to set up camp in Australia in just a matter of days.

Yesterday Holly sent a video message to This Morning co-host Philip Schofield to reveal how she's getting on Down Under.

She said: "Hi Phil, hi Rochelle, it’s only me in the Australian jungle.

“I’ve arrived safe and sound, I’m settling into my new home. It’s amazing here! It’s so beautiful.

"For somebody that’s not that brilliant with nature, I’m sort of fitting in OK. I’ve seen a spider. It was only a little one, but it was a real-life spider. I’m lifting up toilet seats wherever I go. I’m checking inside my shoes. Yet to see a snake."
