I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! star Emily Atack and Love Island 2020 presenter Laura Whitmore will be joining the all-new freshly-squeezed Celeb Juice as team captains, with the two friends ready to go head-to-head when the show returns.
"Every time I've been on Juice in the past I've had such a good time, and now I'm doing it with two of my best mates and I'm a ruddy team captain!!! Can't believe it," Emily said in a statement.
"I dread to think what we're going to be faced with, but Whitmore should know that I won't be backing down and she is going to have some tough competition. But more importantly a wonderfully hilarious time. Bring it on!"
Laura added: "I'm so thrilled to be part of the Celeb Juice Family. I've been the biggest fan for years, I used to go and sit in the audience when I first moved to London and can't believe I'm a team captain now!
"I can't wait to see what Keith has got lined up for Emily and I this series… From past experiences, nothing would surprise me. I cannot wait to get stuck in and lead my team to victory each week… I love you Emily, but watch out! I'm so excited to start!"
"Can't wait to start new Celeb Juice with old friends. Exciting times ahead!" Keith Lemon added.
The new Celeb Juice trio also took to Instagram to share a first picture together, with both Emily and Laura calling it a "dream job" in their captions.
"IT'S HAPPENING KIDS!!! New Celeb Juice coming soon," Emily wrote. "Cannot believe I’m team captain along side my wonderful pal @thewhitmore .. DREAM JOB OR WHAT EH!? Bring on the lols."
"So excited to be the new team captain with my gal @emilyatackofficial All new @celebjuiceofficial coming this autumn. Dream job! Bring it on @keithlemon," Laura added.
The team captain shake-up comes after This Morning's Holly Willoughby confirmed she was quitting the series after 12 years as a captain on the show back in May.
Back in 2018, fellow original team captain Fearne Cotton quit after 10 years, and was replaced by Paddy McGuinness, and later Mel B, with Emily Atack just missing out on a chance to join the team last year.
The new series of Celebrity Juice will return with eight new episodes on ITV2 this autumn, with two one-hour specials to follow.
