Rochelle Humes is rumoured to replace Holly Willoughby on This Morning as she heads off to the jungle to present I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
Holly Willoughby confirmed she will be presenting I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here alongside Declan Donnelly but the big question is - who will replace her on This Morning?
Former Saturday's singer Rochelle Humes, 29, is reportedly set to appear alongside Phillip Schofield as the Celebrity Juice presenter ditches her UK duties for a stint down under.
Rochelle has previously presented on This Morning alongside husband Marvin Homes, and this new opportunity could see her spending five weeks on the sofa alongside regular face Schofe.

A source has told The Sun: "As soon as bosses for This Morning learnt that Holly had accepted the role on I'm A Celebrity they drafted their wish list and Rochelle was at the top.
'Obviously, Holly's are big shoes to fill, but Rochelle has been impressing bosses with her down-to-earth nature an d presenting skills for a while now.'

Holly is super excited to be at the helm of the bush tucker trials, saying, '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... Honestly, I’m a huge fan of ‘I’m a Celebrity’ and actually feel like I’ve won a competition to go and hang out on my favourite show!
'When is it a good time to tell Dec I’m scared of everything that moves?!'
One question that fans are asking as a result of this, however, is what's going to happen to her spot on This Morning?
ITV have been relatively tight-lipped, stating, 'Plans for This Morning will be announced in due course.'

When addressing rumours a few weeks ago Ben Shepherd - who was standing in for Phillip Schofield and Holly along with Mollie King - hinted that we might get a few weeks of This Morning from Australia.
He said, 'This Morning from Down Under. Who wouldn’t love that?' when chatting about the possibility, although there's been no confirmation this is anything more than speculation.
With the news so fresh, no one knows exactly what ITV's next move will be, but it will likely mean a new presenter, two new presenters (with poor School left out), or a new location altogether.
