I’m a Celebrity

It has been confirmed that Holly Willoughby will co-host the upcoming season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

The This Morning presenter replaces Ant McPartlin who has stepped away from the spotlight due to personal issues.

Speaking of her new role, Holly told The Mirror: “I couldn’t be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure.”

Holly has been friends with both Ant and Dec for many years, with the presenters making their break in the entertainment industry around the same time.

The presenter sent her well wishes to Ant who is currently dealing with alcohol and personal issues.

"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 said.

The host gushed about the reality show, admitting that she is a huge fan. “I 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."

Holly’s co-host Declan Donnelly said: “I am hugely grateful to Holly for agreeing to accompany me to Australia this year. She was at the top of my list and I’m thrilled she said yes. It will be a different kind of series but we will try our best to ensure it is no less fun and eventful for our loyal viewers.”

We cannot wait to see Holly present the show alongside Declan Donnelly. There’s no doubt she’ll do a stellar job.


TV bosses in the UK have entered a tug-of-war competition over reality star, Georgia Toffolo, following her successful stint on I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.

The Made In Chelsea star was crowned Queen of the Jungle last night after proving victorious over fellow contestants Jamie Lomas and Iain Lee.

Visibly stunned by her achievement, Georgia couldn't contain her emotion when chatting to hosts, Ant and Dec.

“It’s really overwhelming, thank you so much. Sorry I don’t know what to say I’m really shocked,” she said after winning the public vote.

And it looks like the 23-year-old impressed more than just the British public, with bosses at ITV and Channel 4 both reportedly eager to sign the star.

And while she may be contracted for one more series of E4's Made in Chelsea, ITV are rumoured to be interested in taking her on as a potential presenter and panel show captain.

According to The Mirror, a source close to Georgia said: “Georgia is in a enviable position now.”

“She will be in the next series of Made in Chelsea, but beyond that there are lots of options and lots of interest.”

“The last two winners of I’m A Celebrity were female, in Scarlett Moffatt and Vicky Pattison, and both have ended up working with ITV on projects.”

“There is going to be some real competition to make her good offers.”

One thing's for sure – 2018 is going to be a big year for the reality star.


She may have arrived in the jungle looking pretty high-maintenance, but behind Scarlett Moffatt's nails, tan and hair extensions, it sounds like she was only dying to go au naturel.

After being crowned the Queen of the Jungle, the Gogglebox star opened up about her hygiene routine while Down Under, and it doesn't exactly tally with the gal who made a spray tan her priority before taking her place on I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, the reality star revealed that over the course of three weeks, she showered – wait for it – just four times.

Reflecting on her camp mate Sam Quek's shower routine, Scarlett said: "We did it together, so four! And I had a couple of dips in the creek."

Justifying her decision to avoid the shower, Scarlett joked: "It's not smell-o-vision, is it?"

"I fully embraced being feral. My hair still smells of campfire. I've tried washing it out and it just takes forever." the 26-year-old admitted.

And while the rest of us would just keep trying on that front, it sounds like Scarlett's mum, who rose to fame alongside her daughter on Gogglebox, has other ideas.

"My mam told me to Febreeze my hair. I said: 'I'm not Febreezing my hair!'" Scarlett exclaimed.

We're with her on that one, Betty.


Most viewers have Scarlett Moffatt pegged as the new Queen of the Jungle, but not everyone has been as complimentary about the 26-year-old Geordie's appearance on I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.

While some viewers have begun suggesting ITV is biased towards the Gogglebox star, one anti-bullying charity has even gone as far as to accuse Scarlett of bullying behaviour towards fellow contestant Martin Roberts.

Acutely aware her daughter is unable to defend herself against these accusations, Scarlett's mum, Betty, has decided to weigh in on the controversy and speak on behalf of her child.

Betty, whose relationship with her eldest daughter is well documented on Gogglebox, insist accusations made against her daughter have little grounding in reality.

"Scarlett does daft stuff and lacks common sense but she’s not someone to tear other people down," she insisted.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Betty wholly supported her child, adding: “It’s her choice what she wants to do with her life, but she’s not hurting anybody."

Taking aim at the individuals who have used Twitter as a platform to deride her daughter, Betty slammed: "If calling my daughter thick or stupid or anything else makes you feel better then crack on."

G'wan Betty!



Ah lads, if we didn't love her enough already.

Scarlett Moffatt, whose incredible relationships with her parents Mark and Betty on Gogglebox had us questioning our own, has revealed she gave them one serious present after making the big time.

The 26-year-old, who rose to fame simply by chilling on the couch with her mam and dad, has repaid their kindness over the years by paying off their mortgage on the house they live in in Durham.

Revealing all to her fellow I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here campmates, she said: "I paid off the mortgage on my mum and dad’s house for them. Oh it was the best."

"I just wrote them a letter and said, thanks for being mint, and sorry for leaving fake tan all over the house," she said. "Then I put a cheque in for them."

And while most of us would think Scarlett went above and beyond with that one, she says she's still got more in mind for them.

"My aim is to be able to by me mam and dad a caravan. Because they've always wanted one, but they are like £20,000, and I really want to be able to buy them one," Scarlett said.

"And that's the dream, everyone wants to be able to look after their mama and dad, like they did when they were younger."

Scarlett, a favourite with the public, is currently under scrutiny after accusations she bullying fellow campmate Martin Roberts.


Vicky Pattison has responded to claims which suggest she heavily edits her social media posts to make herself appear slimmer than she really is.

The former Geordie Shore star faced criticism this week after The Mirror published a series of unflattering photos of her smoking on an Australian beach in which she appears far less toned than she does in images on her Instagram account which were taken on the same day.

Speaking to The Sun, the 29-year-old television personality revealed that a newfound sense of body security is all that prevented her from being “floored” by the allegations.

“Bodyshaming makes me sick,” she said.  “It’s because I’m so secure and focused on more important things right now, that this latest critique of my body hasn’t floored me entirely like they normally do.”

“When are people going to get tired of making women feel bad for the way they look?” asked Vicky.

“I am appalled that people would criticise another woman, body shame her and attempt to shatter her confidence based solely on a bad camera angle or an unflattering picture.”


He's everything…  @johnnoblejn

The fiery Newcastle native went on to question why society feels it is more important to “shame” women for their appearances than it is to celebrate their ambitions, positive attitudes and career achievements.

“Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and I’m healthy, happy and enjoying my life,” she stated.  “I genuinely believe in inner beauty and that we rise by lifting and supporting others.”

When it comes to speaking her mind, Helen Woods is an absolute pro.

The former escort, who came to public attention after sleeping with Wayne Rooney, has, since then, made a name for herself on reality television, so it's no real surprise she feels equipped to comment on the dynamic currently playing out in the Australian jungle.

But unfortunately for Helen, she underestimated the support Scarlett Moffatt has in the general public, and looks to be backtracking on the remarks she made last week when discussing I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

"She tries soooo hard to be funny, when in fact she's funny putting zero thought into what she's saying. People who try too hard get on my t*ts, leave the comedy to the experts like Joel," Helen suggested at the time.

Reflecting on the backlash she endured as a result of these comments, the former Big Brother star attempted to clarify her point in her latest Daily Star column.

"Didn't half ruffle a few feathers calling out Scarlett Moffatt's fakery last week, did I? Chill your boots," Helen wrote. "It's obvious she knows she's in with a good chance of winning."

"I actually said I think she's funny when she doesn’t try, but it's the little things that get on my t*ts."

"Like how she clicks when everyone laughs at something she said, so she'll says it again, and then a third time. Okay love, find a new joke, stop recycling ones that got rusty before the omnibus."

Suggesting that the nation's love for Scarlett stems from her ability to shed weight, Helen then added: "I don't know what it is about the great British public, but have you noticed if anyone goes from fat to thin, loses a bit of timber, everyone falls at their feet like they've found the cure for sodding cancer?"

Finishing off the rant, Helen stuck the knife in one last time, adding: "As a nation, we are bleeding soft for the chubster transformation sob stories."

Top-notch clarification, Helen.


While the viewing public could listen to Scarlett Moffatt for days on end, it seems they'd happily press 'mute' on Vicky Pattison.

It looks like the former Geordie Shore star hasn't gained any new fans after trying her hand at the ol' presenting on the latest series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.


Vicky, who won last year's series of the long-running show, was joined by Stacey Solomon, Chris Ramsey and Joe Swash on Extra Camp, and as far as viewers are concerned, she should leave the presenting to Ant and Dec.

The Judge Geordie star has come in for serious criticism on Twitter today, but if we know Vicky like we think we do, she won't bat an eyelid.









Well, that went well… 


We're just one day into the latest series of I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, and Twitter already has their money on Gogglebox star, Scarlett Moffatt, walking away with the crown.

It looks like the 25-year-old, who rose to fame for her witty one-liners on the Channel 4 show, has already won over the vast majority of I'm a Celeb viewers if the public's reaction on social media is anything to go by.

Scarlett, who recently revealed exactly how she prepped for her time in the jungle, looks like a firm favourite to win after making a dramatic entrance into the camp alongside Gavin and Stacey star, Larry Lamb.

And the viewing public fell in love with her all over again.

Twitter, we'll let you field this one.








And finally…


Her weight-loss journey has been well-documented – dropping an incredible 4st and going from a size 16 to a size 6 after overhauling her diet and exercise habits. 

Yes, since emerging as queen of the I'm A Celebrity jungle last year, Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison has gone from strength-to-strength.

It's a transformation that Vicky herself attributes more specifically to ditching junk food and alcohol and switching to a healthy diet of three meals a day. 

She furthermore has a best-selling fitness DVD and a V-Nutrtion range of nutritional bars.

However, the 28-year old has taken even her loyal fans by surprise with her latest Instagram post. Showing a before-and-after snap, Ms Pattison's incredible transformation can be seen to full effect.

Her fans were quick to compliment her too. "Really impressive transformation! Keep it up and be proud!!" said one. "You were still hot before but you're on fire now!! X" said another. A third commentator remarked: "Body achieves what the mind believes, well done you look amazing."

Just this week is was announced that Ms Pattinson had been given an ITV presenting gig for an I'm A Celeb spin-off show.


Reality TV stars are entertaining, controversial and love being in front of the camera so you’d think they’d be ideal contestants for I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here.

But – according to new reports – ITV looks set to ban those of reality TV fame from entering its famous jungle because they have an “unfair advantage” over the show’s other participants.

According to The Telegraph, I’m a Celeb… bosses want to ditch reality stars from November’s line-up in favour of more “credible” names.

A number of the show’s former contestants are said to have complained that reality TV personalities have an “unfair advantage” in the jungle because they are used to being filmed close up and have large social media followings.

A Sun source said: “The last series got a ribbing for having so many reality show stars and giving them lots of camera time.”

“Despite them providing most entertainment, bosses are keen to lure more credible campmates.”

Given that TV personalities from Geordie Shore, The Only Way Is Essex and Made in Chelsea have proven very popular in recent years, it will be interesting to see how the decision to exclude them will play out.

After spending years on the cobbles playing Coronations Street’s Rosie Webster, it looks like Helen Flanagan is now enjoying her favourite role yet; mum to her daughter Matilda.

The 25-year-old has been speaking about how her life has changed since becoming a mum to her one-year-old.

Appearing on Loose Women on Wednesday, Helen was asked about her family life and how it’s impacted her life.

“I was lost before I was a mum.

“My life has changed massively. But completely for the better. I’m in my element being a mum.”

Helen faced her fair-share of backlash over the years especially during her time on I’m A Celebrity but it seems motherhood has helped her overcome the scrutiny and focus on what is important.

She has made me so much happier. It changes your priorities and you realise what's important but I am completely besotted with her.

“It is really full on but you don't realise how much until you actually become a mother yourself.”

And like most celebrity mums, the public have also been quick to judge Helen for her parenting choices including her decision to co-sleep with her daughter.

“We did do that but we have a different routine now. We've got our bed back

“It wasn't something that we planned to do but when she was four or five months old, I was breastfeeding her and she ended up in bed with us.

“I would never want to promote sleeping with a newborn as it's dangerous. I felt guilty when I read about it. It's only when they are old enough or strong enough.”

Matilda is Helen’s first child with boyfriend, Aston Villa player, Scott Sinclair but it sounds like she won’t be the last.

“We had talked about trying for a baby last Christmas – and then we said when she's two and now we're saying when she's three, so we’ll see.”
