Declan Donnelly will bring his newborn daughter to Oz

I can't quite remember my first family holiday, but as far as I know, in the summer of 1995, my parents hopped on the train to Cork with their one-year-old daughter in tow. It wasn't exactly a glamorous trip but I'm sure every parents first holiday is special, regardless of the location.

It looks like Declan Donnelly and Ali Astall's newborn daughter is about to jet off on the ultimate first holiday. Holly Willoughby revealed her I’m A Celeb co-host will be bringing his baby girl to Australia during the filming of the popular reality show.

Speaking on This Morning, Holly Willoughby gushed: “I can’t wait for snuggles with her. I think she’ going to be coming to Australia as well which is very exciting.”

Ali gave birth to the couple’s first child on Sunday morning. Dec confirmed their daughter’s arrival in a touching Instagram post.

The TV presenter shared a photo of him holding his daughter’s tiny hand. He captioned the snap: “‪Ali and I are thrilled to announce the arrival of our baby girl, Isla Elizabeth Anne, who was born just after 9 o’clock this morning.”

He added: “Mother and daughter both doing well, Dad is head over heels! D x”

Ant McPartlin congratulated his best friend shortly after baby Isla was born. He tweeted: “Welcome to the world baby Isla Elizabeth Anne. Can’t wait for cuddles. I love you already!! Uncle Ant xxxxx”

The new dad is set to head to Australia in the coming weeks to record I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

He will be joined by Holly Willoughby who has stepped in as Ant McPartlin’s replacement as he deals with personal issues.

No official date has been confirmed, but it is understood the show will air in late November and end in December.
