Holly Willoughby Confirms She Won't Return To 'I'm A Celebrity' Next Year
The This Morning presenter stepped in to co-host the ITV series alongside Declan Donnelly while Ant McPartlin continued his presenting hiatus following a stint in rehab for drug and alcohol addiction.
Fans loved her chemistry with Dec and some hoped she may reappear on the show next year in some form or another, but Holly has confirmed that's not going to happen.
"It was a one-off, once-in-a-lifetime adventure," she told The Sun at the launch of ITV's Dancing On Ice. "I'll be at home with everyone else having a glass of wine watching it.
"That was the thing I was most jealous of. Here I am standing here while you're all drinking red wine at home in front of the fire and I'm in the rain in the jungle."
Although it sounds like Holly is paving the way for Ant to reprise his presenting role, the 43-year-old is yet to confirm whether he'll return to the jungle.
However, it's thought Ant could make his return to presenting duties in the new year as filming for the audition stages of Britain's Got Talent begin.
"Ant has been working with ITV bosses to get a date in the diary for his return," a source told The Mirror.
"He'll be back filming with Dec and Stephen Mulhern for Britain's Got Talent in mid-January - it's sure to be an emotional reunion for them all."
It's thought Ant always planned to take the rest of 2018 off following his drink-drive charge in April, to ensure he had enough time to recover.
A source told The Sun: "He didn't want to commit to anything before he was absolutely ready but now he feels up to it again.
"He's got his first production meetings this week where he will be talking about the plan for the new series in January and from then onwards he's back into work mode.
"The break has been exactly what he needed and done him the world of good."
