ITV responds to Holly Willoughby axe rumours

Ant and Dec

That might be down to curiosity, of course, as it's the first series of I'm a Celebrity not presented by Ant, but it's still a pretty promising start.

But fast forward six years and ironically Emily has now been dubbed the new Helen by viewers of Sunday night's opening episode.

Get Me Out Of Here! with a brand new cast of celebrities - and a new host.

TV presenter Declan Donnelly has sent a birthday message to Ant McPartlin, who is missing the day in Australia for the first time in years while absent from I'm A Celebrity.

It was the biggest overnight audience for any channel so far this year, excluding the World Cup, according to ITV.




The programme - which includes football boss Harry Redknapp, DIY SOS presenter Nick Knowles and ex-EastEnders star Rita Simons in the line-up - opened with Donnelly jokingly introducing Willoughby, who is standing in for his long-time co-host Ant McPartlin as he takes a continued break from his TV commitments.

When all the teams are complete, they'll both take part in a final head-to-head challenge which will see the winners move straight into the main camp Croc Creek, with the losers heading down to Snake Rock.

PETA's Director, Elisa Allen said: "The Bushtucker Viles - as PETA calls them - prove that the producers of I'm a Celebrity.Get Me Out of Here! are out of touch and out of ideas".

And after Emily Atack's Bushtucker trial last night she even joked about keeping one of the iconic yellow stars as a memento!

The Chase star's jungle campmates tried to reassure her as they told her she'd do great.
