Celebrity Juice's Emily Atack admits she feels "hugely humbled" over replacing Holly Willoughby on the panel.

Willoughby recently quit her role as team captain after 12 years on the show, having lived in host Keith Lemon's crazy world since 2008 alongside the likes of Fearne Cotton, Paddy McGuinness, Kelly Brook and Gino D'Acampo.

For series 24, which premiered last month, Atack and Love Island's Laura Whitmore were brought onboard as the new team captains.

Atack joined Holly and Phillip Schofield for a chat on today's (November 3) edition of This Morning, where she spoke about her new job.

"It's the most hilarious job – it's the dream job isn't it. The great thing about Juice is it's one of the few shows where you can actually have a drink on the tele, let your hair down, laugh at really naughty things and just kind of be a bit of a teenager again," she explained.

"What I'm gathering is that people just love to be there, because as you know Keith Lemon [real name Leigh Francis] is an amazing guy, he's so kind and lovely to everybody, and we just have a lovely time. I don't want it to end, it's just amazing."
