But sadly, the TV personality has announced that she won’t be returning to her recent role next year.

Speaking to the press at the Dancing on Ice launch, she said: “[I’m a Celeb] was a one-off, once-in-a-lifetime adventure.”

Ant has been recovering from his alcohol addiction in rehab and is rumoured to return to host the show next year.

When asked about joining him and Dec as a possible third host, Holly said: “‘I just don’t think it’s even an option. I’m not even thinking about that.

“I’ll be at home with everyone else having a glass of wine watching it as everyone else is. That’s what I was most jealous of – here I am standing here when you’re all drinking red wine in front of the fire.”

Maybe the jungle was a bit too wild for the favourite presenter…

While ITV has yet to confirm Ant’s return to his presenting role, he is believed to be returning to host Britain’s Got Talent 2019.

As for Holly, she will be back alongside Phillip Schofield for Dancing On Ice and This Morning in the New Year.

So, even though she has left I’m a Celeb, we will still be able to see the charismatic host on the big screen next year.
