Fans' worries were soon put to rest when Holly Willoughby began her role as I’m a Celeb co-host this year.

She flawlessly stepped into Ant’s role adding a whole new dynamic to the duo’s usual riffing routine.

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.

We have our King of the jungle and it comes as no surprise.

Loved both inside and outside of the I'm A Celebrity camp, Harry is a worthy winner and was a hot fave to take the jungle crown.

Although we cannot believe that another series is done and dusted, we HAD to take a look at some of Harry's key moments in the jungle.

From his epic stories, bushtucker trials and to the love of his wife, Sandra Harris – Harry was truly one-of-a-kind.

The iconic cyclone trial was no match for Harry, although him shouting about needing a wee, was definitely a highlight.

And we can't forget the moment when he was reunited with Sandra, his wife of 51 years – there wasn't a dry eye in the house.

Their relationship is just so special and Harry was very vocal in the camp about his love for her after all these years – long live their relationship.

As for his last ever bushtucker trail, the 71-year-old met his fear of rats head on and it was hilarious.

His running commentary was TV gold.

And of course, it would be a crime not to mention Harry's rendition of Frank Sinatra's My Way.

The bookies had selected Harry as the fave celeb to win the show as Harry's personality stole everyone's heart.

Fans even took to Twitter last night to show their love for Harry by tucking into his beloved jam roly-poly pudding.

They gorged on the desert during the hour-long episode in his honour and share pictures of their pud.

They're hoping as soon as Harry is out of the jungle, he can enjoy Sandra's version of the dish.

We are thrilled that he took the crown and delighted that Emily Atack was the "princess" of the jungle, coming in at second place.

We are certain the celebrities are glad of a hot shower and some proper grub.

What a season it has been.

The Governess has officially left the I'm A Celeb jungle and she is looking UNREAL.

Though she departs the jungle with some incredible memories, there is something she has left behind.

Anne has lost a staggering stone in just three weeks of living in the camp.

The weight loss comes as contestants would occasionally get treats or meals when they won stars, but mainly the celebrities had to survive off of rice and beans.

Anne opened up about her food in the jungle and it looks like she won't be tucking into portions of rice any time soon.

Talking to This Morning, the 60-year-old said via a video call: “The trouble is really there is no salt.

“About a week ago my digestive system just said to me ‘I’m sorry, I'm not having any more rice."

She continued to tell Phillip Schofield and Rochelle Humes that:  "I can have beans, I can have rice and beans but I am having no more rice because it is just going straight through."

“So since then I’ve not had rice by itself. It just went straight through me,” – delightful. 

Fans were quick to spot her slimmer frame and took to social media to compliment the Chase star.

"Anne has lost so much weight since going in to the jungle she looks great," tweeted one.

Another user said: "I like her, she's done so well and lost loads of weight too. Well done Anne."

Anyone up for a stint in the jungle after Christmas? Wouldn't mind shedding that extra winter fluff. 

But fair play to Anne, she was an amazing camp mate.

The I'm A Celebrity jungle is a great place to open up.

The famous faces have hours to chat about life and what has brought them Down Under. 

So we wonder if James McVey from The Vamps will open up about his previous battle with food.

The musician revealed to the Mirror about his private struggle with an eating disorder.

Opening up about his struggle with food and body image, the guitarist said it had all began when he was overweight as a child.

As James grew he admitted that he developed a “negative relationship” with food which led to him being "stick thin." 

But the 24-year-old didn't realise just how small his frame had been.

 “Fans always send me pictures from years ago and I’m stick thin, and I didn’t realise back then just how thin I was," he said.

“I was ill and I looked ill. I’m happy that now I’ve come full circle and see food as a positive."

“I don’t want to belittle other people who have anorexia, but I think I definitely had a negative relationship with food in those early days. I was obsessed with food," he explained. 

Thankfully, James is on the road to mending his relationship with food. 

“It’s now about building muscle and getting leaner. You need to eat more of the good things,” he said.

Recently, James' fans haven't been too happy with his treatment in the camp.

The 24-year-old missed out on a care package and his followers felt like he wasn't been given enough air time.

We definitely wouldn't mind seeing more of James' face on our screens. 

Fair play to James for bravely opening up about his battle with food and if you're struggling with an eating disorder, you can find help here

As the jungle antics are well underway, favourites are starting to emerge.

However, things seem to have soured for Anne Hegerty's popularity.

The Chaser was accused of game playing for I'm A Celeb and she's been given special treatment. 

Anne, who has Asperger's was hit with backlash from fans of the ITV programme because she was ruled out of a number of Bush Tucker trials on medical grounds. 

Viewers also lashed out and cried that she was given special treatment when they suggested that she was given a soft drink to consume instead of fish-eye juice (YUCK) in a challenge earlier this week.

However, legend chaser Mark Labbett has come running to Anne's defence saying that she hasn't got a "game plan."

Speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, her co-star said: “She hasn’t got a game plan here."

“She’s the ultimate organiser. She’s the godmother to my son, she’s already got his birthday and Christmas presents and handed them on."

“But she reacts terribly to the unexpected, that’s just one of the things autistic and Asperger’s people do," he added.

The Chaser went onto explain that it's preparation which helped Anne during her second challenge.

“That’s why the first trial, she wasn’t expecting it and it threw her. But the Bushtucker trial, where she knew she had to do it, she prepared herself and absolutely bossed it,” he said.

It's a claim that Anne's manager, David Hahn is reiterating, and he said I'm A Celeb viewers are seeing the real version of the 60-year-old.

David described the camp mate as a "lovely lady" and added that her alter ego as The Governess is "an act."

 “She really is a wonderful human being, she’s an honest lady and wouldn’t do anything at all which is on the wrong side of anybody,” he said.

David also denied the accusation that Anne is given special treatment, stating that she went through the same medical checks as her other camp mates.  

“She’s 60 years old. The rigorous checks they go through are incredible… they don’t leave any stone unturned.

“They can’t take any risks. If they say she can’t do a trial for medical reasons, it has got nothing to do with her Asperger’s or autism,” he said.

We love Anne and think she's incredible for braving the jungle – and we are delighted that she's starting to enjoy herself Down Under.

There has been much awaited anticipation surrounding this season of I’m a Celebrity Get me Out of Here.

A new trailer for the 2018 show aired after last night’s X Factor, adding more to this year's hype.

In the video, a daughter trails her father through the jungle, asking him about a yellow star she finds. In a mysterious tone, he tells her the legends are true.

“So being buried in bugs and creepy crawlies? Being showered in spiders? Getting a face full of fish guts?” she asks

“Yep” is the reply met to every one of her questions, hinting at what skin-crawling tasks the celebrities will be faced with this year.

The promo ends with the two arriving at the famous I’m a Celeb bridge and a narrator confirms that the show will air in November.

However, fans seem to have mixed reviews about the new trailer.

“I’m sorry but what was that advert? Where was Dec?” questioned one comment.

“Just seen the I’m a Celeb advert, bit odd, would’ve been good to have Holly & Dec in it.. .but can’t wait”, said another.

Unfortunately, we will have to wait and see when the official release date is announced, but there are rumours circling around November 18th.

However, we can count on a great season because our fave Love Island star might be on the show!

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”

September brings back the memories of new uniforms and school books – no matter what age you are!

And TV presenter Holly Willoughby perfectly summed up this mad time of year when she took to Instagram to post about the state that her front door was in.

The image showed a rather packed front doorway, jammed with school bags and shoes – something that every house can probably relate to.  

The 37-year-old captioned the image, ''hands up if your front door looks like this…''

Her 3.9 million followers clearly were in the same boat as they were quick to comment about their back-to-school stories.

One wrote, ''my front door always looked like this when my five children were young. They're now all working and I miss them all being babies so much I wish I could turn back time xx enjoy these times'' while another said, ''so exciting! And scary all at the same time… wishing them loads of luck xx.''

Holly is mum to three gorgeous kids with her husband of 11 years, Dan Baldwin.

They are; nine-year-old Harry, seven-year-old Belle, and Chester, who turns four this month. 

As well as getting her kids ready for another school year, Holly is gearing up for an exciting new gig – joining Dec to co-present the 2018 series of I'm Celeb. 

It won't be easy stepping into Ant's shoes but Holls has said that she ''couldn't be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure. 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…''

She continued, "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!''

Ditto for us, Holly. 

We wish you the best of luck with the back-to-school rush – after that, the jungle will be a walk in the park!

The haters are back again and have been more relentless than ever to former Googlebox star Scarlett Moffatt. We're sorry you have to deal with this, girl!

The poor actress had an emotional breakdown yesterday after incessant trollers insulted her on social media.

Scarlett appeared on the Love Island spin-off show, Aftersun, last night. During which her low-cut dress revealed a part of her bra while she spoke to the show’s host Caroline Flack.

People immediately took to Twitter to bash the I’m a Celeb winner’s appearance, starting with her bra and then moving on to her weight. There was no holding back as opinionated viewers began fat shaming the 28-year-old for her appearance, calling her ‘utterly revolting’.

Scarlett went home to see tweets judging her body and insulting the way she looked and could not believe the cruelty of women online. The reality TV personality revealed on social media that she cried her eyes out after reading the comments.

‘I’m honestly ashamed of some people on here. Hard to pretend I’m ok and be  a good role model to others about how it’s ok to just you,’ she wrote.

It is hard enough living with an insecurity, let alone when people publicly attack your appearance. However, fans quickly came to her defence after her post, advising her to ignore the nasty comments and to ‘keep shining’.

Love Island star Olivia Buckland also replied to Scarlett saying that she had received similar online treatment.

‘Babe I can feel this so much. Happened to me yesterday I broke down. From one strong lady to another; we’re better than that.[…] All I know is that you are better than words.’

Olivia’s fiancee, Alex Bowen, also vented about the way fat shamers were treating Liv, discrediting their remarks and calling her ‘unreal’.

‘Had liv crying in my arms this morning because of hurtful comments made by disgusting girls and elder women too […] no one should be made feel like that.’

Caroline Flack and Love Island narrator, Iain Stirling, stood by Scarlett’s side, reassuring her how ‘brilliant’ she was and dubbing her the ‘sweetest most approachable individual out there’.

Once again, people hide behind their computers to judge women in the spotlight, but we were happy to see others defending Scarlett and Liv.

Liv also tweeted a powerful message: ‘Lots preach for women in the public eye to be good role models and teach the love yourself motto; yet the parents of the kids they want us to influence are often the ones writing the hate.

‘Self love starts at home, at your heart and not at hate.’

Online bullying has become a serious issue, especially after the suspected suicide of Love Island star Sophie Gradon. The actress had recently addressed social media commentators who were relentless in their tormenting judgements about her looks.

We stand behind women everywhere who are verbally attacked and shamed online because of judgemental comments regarding their appearance.

It is so important to speak out and tell others how you’re feeling. Keep defending your friends and loved ones, encouragement can make all the difference.
