The This Morning presenter has temporarily taken over the reins from Ant McPartlin, although some fans weren't too kind to Holly about her new gig rather than giving her a chance before chiming in with their thoughts.
Twitter was divided in opinion as the show aired on Sunday evening, as it seems like some viewers aren't willing to let Holly settle into her new role and let go of the fact Ant isn't there.
While some couldn't get enough of seeing Holly, others pined for Ant and made their feelings clear on social media.
"I love Holly but I'm A Celeb just doesn't have the jokey Ant and Dec dynamic," shared one Twitter user.
And another I'm A Celeb viewer posted: "Nothing against Holly being on I'm A Celeb but, they've split up two iconic duos and paired them together... Dec should be with Ant and Holly should be with Phil."
"Nothing I miss more than Ant on I'm A Celeb rn sorry I love Holly but it's just not the same," declared somebody else.
Holly's so lovely but I'm a celeb just isn't I'm a celeb without ant and dec, feels weird having one without the other :cry:

I love Holly and I know it's only her 1st episode but there's no chemistry between her and Dec. She has no banter. He's carrying the show with his wit & humour. He's a pro and showing it. Sorry Holly I'm just not feeling it. Maybe she will improve :pray:

But not everyone was so negative about Holly, praising her on her ability to settle into such a big role with ease.
"Watching I'm A Celeb, loving it so far. Holly is a good stand in for Ant," tweeted one viewer of the ITV show.
Another team Holly supporter exclaimed: "Think people need to bore off! Give Holly a chance and just enjoy I'm A Celeb!"
"I'm already loving this series of I'm A Celeb and I already love Holly presenting," gushed a third.

Ant knew that the show would be in good hands with Holly as he continues his television hiatus, as his reportedly picked her himself to fill in his role.
The Geordie TV presenter took to Twitter to wish his best mate Dec and Holly all the best as the show was about to air last night.
Taking to Twitter, Ant wrote: "All the very best of luck to the little fella and @hollywills for the show tonight. Lots of love from the big fella!! A #ImACeleb xxxxx."
